Wimbledon 2016: Novak Djokovic wins 30th consecutive Grand Slam match, Roger Federer ends Marcus Willis' fairytale

New Delhi: Continuing his unbeaten run in majors, World number one Novak Djokovic registered his 30th successive Grand Slam victory on Wednesday as he defeated Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) to reach third round of Wimbledon 2016.

The defending champion, bidding for a third consecutive title at the All England Club and fourth in all, will face either American 28th seed Sam Querrey or Thomaz Bellucci for a place in the last 16.

The match was played under roof on Centre Court as a result of rain.

On the other hand, Swiss legend Roger Federer ended Marcus Willis` Wimbledon fairytale with a comprehensive 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 win.

Willis, who has impressed many with his emotional story, was seen smiling right throughout the match, as the spectators cheered him like they did for Federer.

The World No. 772 hit 24 winners, served nine aces and twice came within a whisker of breaking Federer, all while displaying the effervescent personality that has made him such a fan favourite.

Federer will play Dan Evans or Alexandr Dolgopolov in the third round.

Here are some of the other results from the day:

Coachless Tomas Berdych won 7-6(5) 5-7 6-1 7-6(2) against unseeded Croatian Ivan Dodig during a rain-affected match.

Third seeded Agnieszka Radwanska reached the Wimbledon second round on Wednesday with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Ukraine`s Kateryna Kozlova.
