WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — A quick look at Wimbledon:


A year after Serena Williams played Julia Goerges on Centre Court in the Wimbledon semifinals, the seven-time champion will face the 18th-seeded German in the third round on No. 1 Court. Williams beat Goerges in straight sets last year, but then lost to Angelique Kerber in the final. If Williams wins the title at the end of next week, she will earn her record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will also play in the third round. Eight-time champion Federer will face Lucas Pouille after two-time champion Nadal faces Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Up first on Centre Court will be Ash Barty, the French Open champion who is in her first tournament as the No. 1-ranked player. She will face Harriet Dart, an unseeded British wild-card entry playing at Wimbledon for only the second time.
