Wimbledon Tennis 2021 Highlights: Serena Williams retired hurt in the first set against Aliksandra Sasnovich. Roger Federer advanced to the second round after a walkover win over Adrian Mannarino. Federer had taken the first set 6-4 but Mannarino took the next two 7-6(3), 6-3 to take a two-set lead. However, Federer responded well to take the fourth set 6-2 after which Mannarino gave a walkover. Ash Barty, earlier registered a wobbly win over Carla Suarez Navvaro in her farewell Wimbledon game. Alexander Zverev, on the other hand, got an easy win over Tallon Griekspoor. Venus Williams advanced to the second round by defeating Mihaela Buzarnescu 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.

Roger Federer may be closing in on his 40th birthday, but ahead of the Wimbledon 2021 season, the Swiss maestro said he still believes he can challenge for a ninth Wimbledon title if he gets on a roll. Meanwhile, seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams returns to Centre Court on Tuesday to begin her latest bid for a record-tying 24th major title. Seeded No. 6, she’ll open against 100th-ranked Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro faces a tough start on her return to Wimbledon following a battle with cancer when she takes on top seed Ash Barty in the first round on Tuesday. Barty is aiming to emulate her fellow Australian Evonne Goolagong Cawley by winning the grasscourt major 50 years after her idol achieved the feat and, having shaken off a string of injuries, is in no mood to let the opportunity slip.
