Spanish tennis player Feliciano López.

As he began his Wimbledon campaign early on Day 2, Feliciano Lopez made history just by taking to the court.

The 36-year-old Spaniard broke Roger Federer's record by appearing in a 66th consecutive Grand Slam singles tournament, continuing a run that started at the 2002 French Open.

Lopez, who has reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals on three occasions, took the first set 6-3 against Federico Delbonis of Argentina on Court 7.

The winner faces a potential second-round meeting with fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who is also a setup, against Peter Gojowczyk on No. 3 Court.
