Wimbledon 2018 results: Roger Federer, Serena and Venus Williams advance; Caroline Wozniacki upset on Day 3
Caroline Wozniacki had her hopes of a first Wimbledon title dashed on Day 3
Roger Federer and Serena Williams were both in action during Wednesday's Day 3 of Wimbledon, and both managed to move past the Round of 64 with relative ease. The top-seeded Federer defeated Slovakian challenger Lukas Lacko in three straight sets to move on, while Williams cruised past Bulgaria's Viktoriya Tomova.
Federer's dominant victory helped increase his Wimbledon winning streak to 26 straight sets. He didn't face a single break point on the day.
On the women's side, No. 2 seed Caroline Wozniacki suffered a stunning upset loss at the hands of Russian opponent Ekaterina Makarova. The 30-year-old Makarova took down Wozniacki 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to bring the Danish star's tournament to a surprisingly quick conclusion. That match was briefly interrupted by a swarm of flying ants.
Wozniacki's exit means that there are only three of the tournament's top-eight seeded women still alive through three days of play.
Venus Williams was also in action on Wednesday. After dropping her first set to Romania's Alexandra Gulgheru, No. 9-seeded Williams bounced back strong to take two decisive back-to-back sets and move on.
After the first few days of the tournament brought scorching temperatures in the hot sun, there was some rain on day three. A number of matches later in the day on Wednesday were suspended as the weather interfered. Those matches will resume on Thursday.
