British number one Johanna Konta battled into the second round of Wimbledon with a 7-5 6-2 victory over Romanian qualifier Ana Bogdan.

The 19th seed is the best hope for home success in the singles after reaching the semi-finals of the French Open.

She has not yet shown the same form on grass, losing relatively early in Birmingham and Eastbourne, and did not have things all her own way against 132nd-ranked Bogdan on Court One.

It was attack against defence, with Konta hitting substantially more winners - 27 to nine in the match - but also more errors.

However, she took her chance when it came in the 12th game to win the opening set and then broke serve twice more in the second.

Roger Federer has been seeded ahead of great rival Rafael Nadal for his 21st appearance at Wimbledon.

Wimbledon is unique among the grand slams in having a formula to calculate seedings giving weight to grass-court performances, and Federer will be the number two seed and Nadal three in a reversal of their world ranking positions.

That means Nadal, who was critical of the system in an interview with Spanish TV on Tuesday, is guaranteed to be in the same half of the draw as either Federer or top seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic.
