LOOKAHEAD TO TUESDAY Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will play first-round matches on Centre Court, and there is little reason to believe either will have much trouble. Federer, an eight-time champion who followed on centre court and beat Alexandr Dolgopolov, leads the list with 315.
Earlier Djokovic breezed through to the second round of Wimbledon when opponent Klizan retired during the second set.
The Swiss broke in game one when Dolgopolov netted a backhand, and a double fault from the Ukrainian in game nine handed Federer the first set.
In the all-British first round match Kyle Edmund suffered a scare before claiming his first win at Wimbledon after outlasting world number 869 Alex Ward. Djokovic was up a set and change on Martin Klizan, who retired with a leg injury, ending his bid.
The World No.4 and three-time Wimbledon victor Novak Djokovic faces a challenging start to his 2017 Wimbledon as he has been drawn against one of the most tricky of unseeded players in Martin Klizan.
The Argentine 29th seed eased to the first set before turning his ankle in the second as the 21-year-old Australian took advantage to level. When speaking to the various competitors who have been defeated by Federer in 18 grand-slam finals over the course of 14 years, a common theme of being unnerved emerges. "It's nice to be back but you never like to end a match this way", Djokovic said.
I said, 'Yeah, let me go try to find Novak'. "They saw other players that tried at least".

Under that initiative, federal agents teamed up with their local counterparts to share resources and intelligence. DNAinfo has tracked 1,373 shooting in Chicago as of Friday, and 332 murders.
For players with pre-existing injuries, the temptation to take to the court knowing victory, or even completing the match, is unlikely is all too great.
Those exiting at the opening stage of this year's Wimbledon will pocket €35,000 - more than double the €14,500 offered five years ago.
The sixth-seeded Raonic, the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam final, advanced to the second round at the All England Club by beating Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (4).
"Playing first rounds in Grand Slams are always tough, especially with my first-round match that I lost in Paris", Kerber said.
You would think that somebody who has played well, like Rafa [Nadal] on the clay courts, he would be feeling really good about his chances here and I'm sure he does feel that way.
It has been a fascinating start to the 2017 Wimbledon championship, with the likes of Andy Murray, Raphael Nadal, Venus Williams, and Stanislas Wawrinka taking to the court on Day 1.
