Wimbledon day two: Ashleigh Barty pushed hard by Carla Suarez Navarro
Serena Williams went out after falling during her match.

World number one Ashleigh Barty was made to work hard before sealing a triumphant return to grass with victory over Carla Suarez Navarro

The top seed battled through 6-1 6-7 (1) 6-1 win over an opponent who was playing at the All England Club for the last time, having only recently recovered from Hodgkin lymphoma.

There were tears from Serena Williams who had to retire hurt after a slip, and tantrums from a Frenchman accused of not trying.

Roger Federer’s return almost did not go to plan but the Swiss great is through after Adrian Mannarino also had to retire hurt, following a fall, with the score at two sets each.
