Each day during Wimbledon, we'll bring you exclusive photography from Anita Aguilar, who is covering the tournament for Steve Tignor provides the captions.

Sabine Lisicki, who opened the women’s draw on Centre Court, couldn’t hide how happy she was to be back in her favorite place, and winning again.

It was wall-to-wall humanity out on the field courts on Tuesday. This was the last chance to see singles matches there until next year.

Court 18 is known as a theater of the absurd, including Isner-Mahut in 2010, and Fabio Fognini and Gael Monfils so far this week. There was a crowd in place early to see what the court would show us next.

Agnieszka Radwanska tiptoed past Andreea Mitu in her opener.

Madison Keys followed up her first tour title in Eastbourne last week with her first win over Monica Puig today.

The clouds rolled in early on Court 8 for Puig.

This couple had a view of the field courts, and beyond, to themselves.

Dustin Brown (second from right), a first-round loser yesterday, was still much in evidence on the grounds.

Caroline Garcia celebrated her three-set win over Saran Errani with a double fist-pump....

...and got a drive-by handshake from the Italian for her efforts.

Eugenie Bouchard, winner over Daniela Hantuchova, is looking ahead...

...perhaps she's wondering what's going on with Hantuchova’s hair.

The woman behind the shades, Vicky Duval of the U.S., qualified and beat Sorana Cirstea in the first round.

Even Cirstea’s personal cheering section couldn’t prevent defeat.

Rafael Nadal heard the crowd roar for and against him in the day’s best show-court match, a four-set win over Martin Klizan.

Klizan kept it close the whole way and never let the tension in the arena drop.

Taylor Townsend couldn’t match her French Open run, falling in her Wimbledon debut to Klara Koukalova.

Serena Williams made short, sharp work of Anna Tatishvili.

Camila Giorgi with a private-looking fist-pump; she won her first-rounder.

The day ended with a win for a 32-year-old veteran of many long days on tour, Tommy Robredo.
