Wimbledon : Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Alexander Zverev advance to next round

At Wimbledon, eight-time winner Roger Federer survived a huge scare when French opponent Adrian Mannarino was forced to retire injured at the start of the fifth set of their first-round tie.  Federer was level at 6-4, 6-7 (3/7), 3-6, 6-2 when 33-year-old Mannarino called it quits after suffering a bad fall on the Centre Court just one point in the decider.

Earlier, two-time champion Andy Murray registered a dramatic four-set victory over 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili. Murray won 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 against the Georgian.

No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev of Germany began his quest with an easy 6-3, 6-4, 6-1 win over Dutch qualifier Tallon Griekspoor.

In the women’s section, American Serena Williams broke down in tears as her latest attempt for an elusive record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title was cruelly ended by injury in a contest with Belarusian world number 100 Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty held off a spirited Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-7 (1-7) 6-1 to reach Round Two.
