Fed held up.

Tennis: Defending champion Roger Federer's bid to set a new benchmark for consecutive grass court victories was beaten by the weather on Wimbledon's opening day.

Federer's bid to surpass the record of 41 wins he currently shares with the great Bjorn Borg ended 35 minutes into his Centre Court match with Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

Federer's possible second round opponent Tim Henman kicks off the action on Court One against Swede Robin Soderling today, while Andy Murray is fourth on Centre against Nicolas Massu.
