Roger Federer wins in straight sets against Lukas Lacko to maintain his strong run of form at Wimbledon, as he seeks back-to-back titles.

Reigning Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has produced another impressive display in overcoming Lukas Lacko in the second round.

The eight-time winner was rarely troubled as he eased to a 6-4 6-4 6-1 victory against his world-number-44 opponent in a little over an hour and a half.

Federer was also a straight-sets winner against Dusan Lajovic in his opening match, meaning that he has now won 26 sets in a row at SW19.

After breaking Lacko in the seventh game of the contest, the Swiss asserted his dominance and took the opening set without facing a single break point, which remained the case in the next two sets.

Lacko lost serve in the fifth game of the second set as a flawless Federer dominated from the baseline, and it proved to be plain sailing in the third as the 36-year-old used a fierce forehand to seal victory with his first match point.
