Roger Federer has beaten Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain in straight sets to reach the third round at Wimbledon.

The five-time champion had early breaks in each set for a comfortable 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 victory.

Federer had just 10 unforced errors on Centre Court to go with 27 winners, and never lost his serve.

Federer is looking for a 15th Grand Slam title, which would break the record he shares with Pete Sampras. He is the top seed in the tournament after defending champion and No. 1 Rafael Nadal pulled out because of bad knees.
