Recently Serena Williams won in the first round of Wimbledon and has given interview in which has told that will return to the court she could only when stopped breastfeed breast.

Still the increasingly competitive nature of the contest was relished by Williams, who let out a roar after a cross-court backhand victor brought up another break point that Tomova saved, before applauding the 23-year-old as she survived a match point and forced her to successfully serve it out.

"It's just credit to her, she played very well and took advantage, you have to at these championships", Venus said of Dulgheru's first-set performance.

The Frenchman has never been beyond that stage and to do so will have to defeat 11th-seeded Querrey.

For now, Venus, 38, settled for acknowledging a welcome milestone for her peers, one that followed her own campaigning in previous years to try to secure equal prize money for both men and women at Grand Slams.

Top seed Simona Halep will play Zheng Saisai on Court One while home hope Johanna Konta plays Dominica Cibulkova on Centre Court after Rafa Nadal opens the programme. The 11th-seeded Sam Querrey dismissed Sergiy Takhovsky of Ukraine 7/6 (4); 6/3; 6/3.
