LONDON — Roger Federer continued his trailblazing progress at Wimbledon Wednesday as he overwhelmed Slovakia’s Lukas Lacko 6-4, 6-4, 6-1 to extend his campaign into the third round.

Centre Court was treated to another display of sensational serving and genius groundstrokes as Federer outmatched Lacko with some of his finest work.

“Sometimes your serve matches up better against certain players. There’s no doubt about that,” said the defending eight-time champion.
