Federer's quest continues

5:51 pm on 24 June 2009

Roger Federer's personal odyssey to win a record 15th grand slam by lifting another Wimbledon trophy runs into a Spaniard in the second round tonight.

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez may hardly be in the league of countryman and world number one Rafael Nadal but he's enjoying the best year of his career after winning his first tour title in May and will be a tougher test than Federer's first-round opponent.

Another serial Wimbledon winner, Serena Williams, is in second-round action, on Court One, she follows Serb Novak Djokovic, who will be looking to exorcise the ghosts of last year when he was eliminated at this stage by Russian former world number one Marat Safin.

Maria Sharapova opens the day's proceeding on centre court.
