They are my initials.

Roger Federer left Nike after 24 years and unveiled his new endorsement deal at Wimbledon.

Roger Federer made light work of Dusan Lajovic as he began his quest for a ninth Wimbledon title with a 6-1 6-3 6-4 victory.

New look, same old dominance for Roger Federer at Wimbledon.

Vekic, who played in three grass-court tournaments coming into Wimbledon, won the next three games, moving nervelessly along the baseline and punishing less-than-pinpoint serves with bullet-like returns.

"Of course in that moment, that final has been a very important step forward for me in my career", said 17-time major victor Nadal.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion, playing his first match on grass since an epic defeat to Gilles Muller past year, had little trouble against his Israeli opponent, needing just 1hr 50mins for a straight-sets win that sees him through to a second-round match with either Vasek Pospisil or Mikhail Kukushkin.

Federer's deal with Uniqlo is reported to be worth some $US300 million ($A408m) over ten years. "Then I spent the rest of the time with her when she woke up", she added.

Trump said he will always defend the sovereignty, safety and security of the American people. However, a slim majority on the nation's highest court approved the ban's third iteration.

According to reports on US sports site ESPN, Uniqlo initially offered Federer $US21 million to wear its gear.

The 36-year-old's whites were missing the usual swish and the familiar RF emblem was not on his headband after the 20-times Grand Slam champion's long-term deal with American apparel and equipment company Nike ended in March.

It was the second successive year that Federer had knocked out the Serb at Wimbledon.

Last year's runner-up, Marin Cilic, also advanced easily with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 win over Japanese player Yoshihito Nishioka.

Nick Kyrgios served his way into the second round at Wimbledon as the 15th-seeded Australian fired 42 aces and saved all five break points he faced to beat Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5), 6-3.

Viewers in the US will be able to watch the tournament in its entirety on ESPN and ESPN 2, with the former airing the entire first week of play, while the latter will broadcast outer court matches during the second week. "I didn't play my best but I'll get there", Williams said soon after walking off court. "I'm looking forward to see what shoes I will be wearing in the near future". I feel like if they seeded her, there are going to be critics. Ties are not broken there.

Brand ambassador speak: "I am deeply committed to tennis and to winning championships". But like Uniqlo, I also have great love for life, culture and humanity.
