A year ago, Kate Middleton was at the tournament with her daughter-in-law Megan Markle and Prince William.

Swiss maestro Federer, who is chasing a 21st major crown, unleashed 46 winners past the battling world number 169.

A year ago at Wimbledon, the Duke of Cambridge told tennis star Novak Djokovic that he is trying to get his older kids, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte into sports. But first, the Cambridge kids are said to be stopping by St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for their cousin baby Archie Harrison's royal christening. "His mum has always enjoyed her tennis", he added of the Duchess of Cambridge who attended Wimbledon this week.

"She said she spoke to Judy Murray and she suggested taking away the racket and do more of the basic stuff, which is absolutely right".

"I think I have a little advantage that I actually spent some time with him". She said: "I would expect the palace would have tried to have planned it so there weren't be too many clashes as the Cambridges will be putting the spotlight on Pakistan and the Sussexes will be shining their light on Africa".

Breathtaking view of solar eclipse leaves South Americans enthralled
Since the Solar Eclipse will best be seen from Chile and Argentina, it has been dubbed as the 2019 American Total Solar Eclipse. You may not experience a "total eclipse of the heart" today, but you may be able to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse.

Kate revealed that Prince George's favourite player is Federer and the little boy has even played tennis with the sports star. I love to see they're into tennis or into sport.

"So I think it's good to highlight how important doubles and mixed is..." Federer won his eighth title at the All England Club in 2017 and was eliminated in the quarterfinals previous year. "This first week has been going well and I know the opponents in terms of ranking will now get better".

"Thankfully I played a pretty good breaker, I had some help from him as he gave me a couple of unforced errors".

Meanwhile, China's Wang Qiang has said confidence was everything as she looks to cause an upset at Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old was quickly made aware of the scale of the task at hand, failing to win a point on the Federer serve before dropping his own following three double faults. In the 2017 BBC documentary Sue Barker: Our Wimbledon, the Duchess confessed, "I have watched Wimbledon, that was very much part of my growing up".
