Wimbledon - Monday Schedule: Federer, Serena Williams, Dimitrov to play

As she returns to tennis following the birth of her daughter, she is priced up at second favourite to win this year's Wimbledon title despite being ranked just 183rd in the world, a testament to her astonishing ability. "Well, I won't think about it, I'll just be out there, yeah".

The report stated that the doping control officer arrived at 8.30am and, given Williams was not present, refused to leave until she had been tested - which, for whatever reason, never happened on that particular day. Williams has only played three tournaments and seven matches since. Maybe that's the part I don't like so much: the inconsistency of the places where they test.

The 36-year-old said she was tested five times on June, compared to one or none from some of her compatriots. History has shown, though, that he if does get to the last-eight here - as he's done five times - he always goes on to the final. "I am not here to play the tournament; I am here to try to have a good result", the 32-year-old said, adamant that he can put behind him a string of more recent disappointments in London SW19. What I want to know is everyone is getting tested, that we are really working to keep this sport clean.

She added: "It's just about being equal and not centring one person out".

Williams has complained that her issue is with players not being tested equally and Federer fully understands where she is coming from. For me it's a little frustrating.

"Gosh, yeah. So I don't know".

"I was like, 'I'm totally not in the area because my hour is actually a long time from now". Until I read that article, I didn't realize it was such a discrepancy with me, as well as against the other players that they listed, at least with the American players, both male and female. To honest, in the 15 years I've been there, it's been one test. Just due to the numbers, it looks like I'm being pushed out.

She was also pleased with the weather, which she said was the most handsome she had seen in her visits to Wimbledon and made her feel at home. At the time I wasn't happy, but looking back, I'm glad I had that win. In the village I live in in Switzerland, the tester lives in the same village, so it's very convenient.

United States cyclist Taylor Phinney has been tested 90 times by USADA; distance runner Molly Huddle has been tested 74 times, while athlete Galen Rupp has been tested 167 times. "Just test everyone equally". As always, the men's defending champion opens the schedule. She went a few weeks without even attempting to serve, while healing, and insisted she wasn't entirely sure how she'd fare with that stroke in her opening match.
