Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic March Into Third Round

Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic March Into Third Round

Pella, a clay-court specialist who until Thursday had never reached the third round of a Grand Slam and until this week had yet to win a match here, claimed the biggest scalp of the day as the 28 year-old overturned a two-set deficit in breath-taking fashion, finally converting a fourth match point in the fifth.

There was no comparable follow-up to Pella's giant-killing as he was beaten in straight sets by world number 103 Mackenzie McDonald.

Fritz was leading 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (0).

Friday's match will however be their first meeting on grass.

Bad light on Court One had caused play to be suspended late on Thursday, with fourth seed Zverev struggling and trailing the world number 68 by two sets to one.

The eight-time champion and No. 1 seed next faces 22nd-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France, who beat Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3.

That leaves Serena as the only remaining woman to have won the tournament.




Only one former champion and one top 10 seed have made the fourth round of the women's singles at Wimbledon.

Once the Czech survived a second-set tiebreak, she raced through the decider to make it through to the second week for the first time in seven attempts. It is timed for release as the anticipation crests with Roger as returning champion, 10 years after their famed 2008 Wimbledon championship - an epic match so close and so reflective of their competitive balance that, in the end, the true victor was the sport itself.

"Just ran out of time in the end, " Venus said.

Tenth seed Keys, who had made at least the quarter-finals of her last three majors, lost in the third round 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 to Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina, ranked 120th in the world.

"It was really tough because I played her in Miami, I had a few match points there and I lost so that was going into my mind sometimes". I thought I did very well today.

Keys, who was the US Open runner-up a year ago, crashed out 7-5 5-7 6-4 to the Russian on a baking hot Court Three.

Keys added: "It's definitely been a challenge that I have had to deal with where all of a sudden I'm the one that's supposed to win and people are playing with nothing to lose and playing their best tennis". "So it will be great to play against her".
