The Latest: Federer faces Gasquet in 2nd round at Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON, England — The Latest on Wimbledon (all times local):

11 a.m.

Federer will be hoping to emulate the Swiss soccer team’s win at the European Championship when he plays the late match on Centre Court. This time, though, a Swiss victory wouldn’t be much of an upset. Federer has won his last 17 matches against French opponents and also has a 10-match winning streak against Gasquet.

Federer also faced a French opponent in the first round and was in danger of losing before Adrian Mannarino retired in the fifth set with a knee injury.

Also on the men’s schedule is No. 2-seeded Daniil Medvedev, who plays wild card Carlos Alcaraz.

On the women’s side, top-ranked Ash Barty will be first on Centre Court to play Anna Blinkova, the runner-up in girls singles at Wimbledon in 2015. The 17-year-old Coco Gauff takes on Elena Vesnina in another Centre Court match.
