  2. 'I'm intrigued by his story'

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 6-3

    Federer on his next opponent, British qualifier Marcus Willis: "I was very intrigued about his story, it is what our sport needs, where guys come from nowhere. We have had a hard time producing those players and I am really looking forward to playing him, couldn’t be more excited.

    "It is a huge moment for him I am still on way back as well, his story unbelievable and it just shows depth of men’s tennis."

  3. The best of Brits

    Show some British love for Marcus Willis and Dan Evans...

  4. How the Brits fared on day one

    Marcus WIllis was the British hero on day one of Wimbledon 2016 as the British number 23 booked a place in round two against Roger Federer. And he was joined later by Dan Evans.

    But compatriots  Kyle Edmund and Laura Robson both lost in straight sets, with four other Britons also beaten in the opening round. 

    James Ward went down to defending champion Novak Djokovic, while Alex Ward, Jamie Broady and Brydan Klein were also beaten.

    Read more here on how home hopes fared on the first day.

    James Ward - having lost the opening nine games of his match - sparked wild cheers when he finally won a game in the second set

    The crowd loved this. They didn't expect the match to be this close or entertaining.

    Roger was frustrated for a good bit but the way he ended will make him feel a whole lot better.

  6. Game, set and match

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 Pelle

    We have a winner!

    Roger Federer serves an ace through the middle to see off Guido Pelle. 

    Centre Court rise to their feet in appreciation. 

    It wasn't a vintage performance from the Swiss, but Argentine Pelle put up a very decent fight.

  7. Federer's breakthrough

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 5-3 Pelle

    Maybe the boys on Centre Court are reading this? We have a break!

    Roger Federer moves to 15-40 and smashes a forehand straight down court to make it 5-3 in the third.

    The Swiss third seed serves for the match.

  8. Post update

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 4-3 Pella

    Anyone want to break serve? 

    Roger? Guido? Anyone?

    No, OK. Stick to what you know, then.

    Watch the winning moment as Great Britain's Dan Evans beats Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany in four sets.

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 3-2 Pella

    Gudio Pelle and Roger Federer both hold to love in their respective service games.

    This could be a lonnnnngggg night on Centre Court.

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) 2-1 Pella*

    The Centre Court crowd quietly chortle as Gudio Pelle comes zooming into the net to meet a Roger Federer tap-over and falls over on his bum.

    It seemed to throw the Argentine off his stride a little as, from 0-30, Federer recovers to hold. 

    We're still going with serve in this one. It's like a defensive game of chess. 

  13. Game, set and match

    Evans 6-3 6-7 7-6 7-5 Struff

    A beaut of backhand sees Britain's Dan Evans beat Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany in four sets.

    It means the British number six is into the second round at SW19 for the first time and he claims his first ever main draw match.

    Well done that man.

  14. Willis - Wimbledon's new hero

    Today at Wimbledon, BBC 2, 20:30 BST

    You can hear more from Britain's new star Marcus Willis in Today at Wimbledon on BBC Two from 20:30 to 21:30 BST.

    Willis has been chatting to Clare Balding about how he went from world 772 to the prospect of facing Roger Federer at SW19,

  15. Game and third set

    Federer 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3) Pella

    Roger Federer moves through the tie-break with relative ease to take the second set against Argentina's Gudio Pella.

    The world number 51 looks frustrated as he hits the net with a forehand to gift it to the seven-time champion.

    I have not seen Pella play a great deal, but I have some, and his serve has got better and better.

    This has been extremely educational to watch guy like this, a player who 80 per cent of people don't know him. 

    For Roger though, he doesn't show it, but he is frustrated right now.

  17. Tie-break

    Federer 7-6 6-6 Pella

    These lads love a tie break, eh?

    There's very little between them at the moment...

  18. The best from Djokovic v Ward

  19. Don't panic

    It's one from the archives

    Much as England skipper Wayne Rooney would love to be at Centre Court with his wife Coleen, the Manchester United striker/midfielder has other matters on his mind.

    England, of course, take on Iceland for a place in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals from 20:00 BST.

    You can follow all the action on BBC Radio 5 live, with updates on the BBC Sport website.

    I am surprised Pella has got Roger unsettled enough that he is overhitting and making uncharacteristic mistakes.
