So the people have voted, and Roger Federer is still more popular than Andy Murray.
It's going with serve in the first set on Centre Court, with Martin Klizan keeping pace with Rafael Nadal. Worth remembering Nadal has won just one match at Wimbledon since reaching the final in 2011.
BRIT WATCH: Heather Watson is a break up in the first set against Ajla Tomljanovic on Court 3. She leads 3-1.
Indeed, Samantha Murray is up next on Court 1 taking on No.5 seed and 2004 Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova.
Regardless of that slightly limp ending, that was on the whole pretty impressive from Federer. He'll be expecting to go deep into the tournament again at SW19.
WINNER: At the sixth time of asking, Roger Federer takes match point. Paolo Lorenzi extends the match a fraction longer by challenging the winning serve, but Hawkeye proves it was indeed on the line.
And after all that, Federer will have to serve for the match at 5-3 in the third. Hardly the killer instinct from the seven-time champion.
A slightly farcical game in the Federer-Lorenzi match. We're on our sixth deuce and Federer has squandered four match points. What's the opposite of coup de grace?
BRIT WATCH: Heather Watson is out on Court 3 limbering up for her first-round encounter with Ajla Tomljanovic, the current world No.53.
SEED OUT: No.28 seed Guillermo Garcia-Lopez loses in five sets to Dusan Lajovic, who reached the fourth round at the French Open last month and now adds a win on his first Wimbledon appearance to that record.
The conclusion of Lisicki's match means that Rafael Nadal is out warming up on Centre Court for his first-round match with Martin Klizan.
Federer has broken again in the third set. It's 3-0 and rattling towards its conclusion.
There are some similar mismatches in the men's draw too, of course. Roger Federer versus Paolo Lorenzi, for example. It's 6-1 6-1 after less than an hour, and will probably be done inside the next half-hour.
WINNER: Wozniacki is joined in the second round by No.4 seed Agnieszka Radwanska who has swatted Andreea Mitu aside 6-2 6-1 in 48 minutes.
Some, err, "epic" duels in the ladies' first round...
WINNER: No.16 seed Caroline Wozniacki takes the second set 6-0 against Shahar Peer after resuming at 2-0 from overnight. She will now face Britain's Naomi Broady in the second round.
WINNER: She needed two match points to do it, but Sabine Lisicki takes the second set 6-1 and advances to the second round in just 57 minutes.
It's not going well at all for Julia Glushko in her first ever appearance at Wimbledon, never mind it being on Centre Court. She's 4-1 down in the second set to last year's runner-up Sabine Lisicki and they've only been on court 52 minutes.
Up next on Centre is Rafael Nadal. Hope he had an early lunch...
First set to Federer. He saves a clutch of break points in the seventh game of the set to take it 6-1 in 24 minutes.
Meanwhile, Michal Przysiezny might be a broken man after that epic tiebreak. He loses the third set 6-1 to Lleyton Hewitt, winning just 15 points in the process. He won 16 in the previous tiebreak!
Some one-sided first sets going on out there. Agnieszka Radwanska has taken hers 6-2 against Andreea Mitu of Romania, Sabine Lisicki wrapped hers up 6-2 as well against Julia Glushko, and Roger Federer is serving for the first set at 5-1 versus poor Paolo Lorenzi, who has not won a match at a Grand Slam in 12 previous attempts.
On Centre Court, Sabine Lisicki breaks for a second time to lead 5-2 in the first set against Julia Glushko. Three double faults by Glushko are not helping her cause.
WINNER: Chris Wilkinson's tip Kei Nishikori is through in straight sets against 6ft 8in giant Kenny de Schepper.
Paolo Lorenzi saves three break points, then gifts a fourth to Federer with a long forehand. Federer takes that fourth chance, but it's interesting to see Lorenzi so committed to serve-volley so early in the match. How might Stefan Edberg's influence change Federer's own approach on grass?
Roger Federer off and running on Court 1. Paolo Lorenzi manages to take one point, but Federer is already working his way through an array of different shots. He holds to 15 in the first game.
Meanwhile, Lleyton Hewitt LOSES a 30-point tiebreak to Michal Przysiezny. They're locked at one set each.
WINNER: Stanislas Wawrinka wins the final two games in the third set to be Joao Sousa 6-3 6-4 6-3. A mere 18 aces to nil for the Swiss, too.
An epic tiebreak is taking place on Court 3. Lleyton Hewitt and Michal Przysiezny combining for 26 points. And they're still going!
Back on Court 2, Stan Wawrinka is a break up in the third set against Joao Sousa, leading two sets to love. He's two games away from taking his place in the second round.
Which means... it's Roger Federer time!
DONE! Tsonga holds to love and advances to the second round. Neither player will need to shower.
It's 40-0. All that warming up and Jurgen Melzer might not even win a point...
Meanwhile, on Court 1, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga resumes his match against Jurgen Melzer serving for the match at 5-4 in the fifth set. This could be the shortest time on court of the day...
An emotional Marion Bartoli walks out on Centre Court to perform the coin toss ahead of Lisicki-Glushko. She might not have noticed she was introduced as Maria by the Centre Court announcer...
