Wimbledon: Roger Federer put on quite a display in front of Prince Charles, sweeping aside Fabio Fognini 6-1, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Federer and his Italian opponent bowed to Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in the Royal Box before their match, and the Swiss six-time champion then showed them the type of tennis that helped him rule on Centre Court for so many years.

Hitting winners with clinical accuracy, Federer dictated play from the start and never faced a break point. He broke the Italian five times and wrapped up the victory in 1 hour, 13 minutes.

Federer said it was "a great feeling" to play in front of the royals.
