Wimbledon's first day is complete and the second day is under way, but we're already looking to Wednesday, which is Day 3 of the best Grand Slam in tennis.

After a French Open that was nothing short of epic, we expected a lot from Wimbledon, and we haven't been disappointed through a day and a half.

We've seen massive upsets like those of Venus Williams and Tomas Berdych, and incredible tennis from the world's best.

Roger Federer looks like his old self, winning his first match 6-1, 6-1, 6-1. He was completely dominant, and looked like he could win his seventh Wimbledon title this year, tying him with Pete Sampras for the most in the Open Era.

The rest of The Fortnight is going to be exhilarating, and it all kicks off once again on Wednesday.

 

Top Matches to Watch

Novak Djokovic is the world's No. 1 for a reason, and it should come as no surprise that he beat Juan Carlos Ferrero in straight sets in his opening match. Next up for the Djoker is Ryan Harrison of the USA. This match should show us a bit more of how well Djokovic will play down the stretch and whether he can avenge a loss to Rafael Nadal in the French Open final.

After pulling off the biggest upset of the tournament so far, Ernests Gulbis looks to continue his winning ways against Jerzy Janowicz. Gulbis took out Berdych, the world's No. 6 player, in straight sets, and if he were to play like that throughout the tournament, he can make a deep run.

Federer looks to stay dominant, this time against Fabio Fognini. Fed is still at his best on grass, and another straight-sets victory could be in the cards again Fognini.

Kim Clijsters is a streaky player at best, and after knocking off No. 18 Jelena Jankovic, she looks to make it to the third round with a victory over Andrea Hlavackova.
