The defending champion, top seed and favourite as he targets a ninth title, swept aside Dusan Lajovic in straight sets on Centre Court. It was the first time Nadal had lost before the third round of a Grand Slam since he was beaten by Gilles Muller in the second round at Wimbledon in 2005.
"Uniqlo will help Mr. Federer continue taking tennis to new places while exploring innovations in a number of areas including technology and design with him", Uniqlo founder and chairman Tadashi Yanai said in a statement.
Serena Williams' seeding saga and is Roger Federer fallible? I mean, besides the history and the mythical place that it is, you can not also practice on it.
"The entire atmosphere changes at Wimbledon, and you realise the eyes are on you".
Former world number two Zvonareva, one of a number of tennis mums at the tournament, came through qualifying to make the main draw for the first time since 2014.

Uniqlo, which outfitted Novak Djokovic before the Serbian tennis star signed a deal with Lacoste a year ago, announced Federer as its new "Global Brand Ambassador" on Twitter.
"I haven't suffered any big injuries in my career".
However, even Federer can not escape the giant shadow cast on the sporting landscape by the ongoing World Cup.
The Serbian just failed but a 6-3 6-1 6-2 defeat of American Tennys Sandgren was an impressive way to kick off his challenge for a fourth title at the All England Club.
"Sure, yeah. They have a long-standing rivalry". Sources say that Federer's agent Tony Godsick was seeking more money from Nike despite its promise to expand the "RF" line.
"They're very different from one another".
Wimbledon began Monday and will go on until July 15 when the men's singles final will be played.
It never does to look too far ahead in a sporting tournament, yet a minor frisson of expectation is beginning to ripple through the men's draw after the two-time champion Rafael Nadal and a potential future victor Alexander Zverev left favourable impressions on the still pristine lawns only two days into the championship.
Sam Querrey, who lost to Cilic in the semifinals previous year, had a similarly comfortable start as he beat Jordan Thompson of Australia 6-2, 6-4, 6-3.
Also getting their campaigns under way on Monday are five-time women's champion Venus Williams against Johanna Larsson.
Marin Cilic, who is the tournament's third seed, made light work of his first-round encounter against Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka wining 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 on the opening day.
With his 172 runs, Finch also became the highest scoring captain in the format. 2 - Aaron Finch reached his second T20I 150. Finch's sparkling innings of 172 came off just 76 deliveries and included a stunning 16 fours and 10 sixes.

The Italian closed with an 8-under 62 for an eight-shot victory, matching the largest margin this year on the PGA Tour. Lahiri, who had a fine three-under 67 on first day, needed pars on his last three holes to survive and make the cut.
Belgium face Japan on Sunday with a spot in the World Cup quarter-finals on the line (22:00 UAE kick-off time). De Bruyne advanced the ball with a handsome push, making a ideal lead pass to Jan Vertonghen with room to run.
Whether or not they play out is one thing, but to say players don't at least engage each other on the subject is another. The Los Angeles Lakers will be an attractive destination for players if they can sign LeBron James .

Even without Paul George , who agreed to re-sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, that makes the Lakers an instant contender. Many have already wondered what the NBA Finals might look like without James taking on the Warriors every year.
