Twitter pokes fun at Portugal vs. Croatia

Portugal vs. Croatia did not serve up any excitement. In fact, it didn't even register a shot on target in 90 minutes. Twitter was not impressed.

James Ward has admitted he voted for Britain to leave the EU -- and told the UK to calm down! "It's my decision and I think we'll be alright," he said in his postmatch media conference after losing to Novak Djokovic. "We need to stop panicking and it will be fine."

Hard to believe, but Venus Williams won her opening Wimbledon match in her 19th appearance here. Her opponent, Donna Vekic, a 7-6 (3), 6-4 loser, was only 2 when Venus made her debut.

Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

With his win, Novak Djokovic has won his past 70 straight sets in the first three rounds of a major.

Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

Trivia: When was the only time Novak Djokovic lost a match when up two sets to love? Against Jurgen Melzer at the 2010 French Open, of course. Djokovic is up two sets on James Ward today, and more than likely, he'll improve that record to 161-1.

More than 18 years separate Ivo Karlovic (37) and Borna Coric (19), but it was the old man who prevailed in straight sets. Karlovic fired 55 winners.

And James Ward finally wins his first game of the match. Crowd went bananas -- as if he'd won the tournament.

Nice when the Wimbledon "brollies" (aka umbrellas) are out because of the sun, as in this case on Monday afternoon.

It's Wimbledon 1, British tennis 0 on Day 1 at the All England Club. Kyle Edmund put up a decent fight in the second set against France's Adrian Mannarino in front of a good crowd on court No.2, but went down 6-2, 7-5, 6-4.

Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

We're 36 minutes into the opening match on Wimbledon's center court, and the only question is: Will James Ward win a single game? Novak Djokovic is up 6-0, 3-0.

Matt Wilansky Tennis editor 

Great as he's been, Novak Djokovic has never been fully embraced by the fans. And his first-round opponent, James Ward, is a Brit, so you can bet the world No. 1 won't be getting much love today.
