Roger Federer sprints past Struff to stay on title course — ATP Wimbledon

Australian 17th seed Ashleigh Barty reached the third round for the first time with a 6-4, 7-5 win over fellow former Wimbledon junior champion Eugenie Bouchard.

In one video, Williams appears to be applying makeup as Alexis plays with her makeup case and grabs different items stuffing them in her mouth.

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

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.

As Keys reflected on the defeat she said it showed just how mentally strong Williams was in coping with the added pressure of being favorite to win virtually every match she plays.

Their defeats means that eight of the women's top 10 at this year's championships have already been knocked out.

"I think I can be very happy today", said Federer, who will next face France's Adrian Mannarino.

After reaching the final past year and the semi-finals in 2016, Venus was expected to mount another strong challenge for the Wimbledon title.

Meanwhile, fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev completed another five-set comeback, beating American Taylor Fritz 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2 in a match that was suspended Thursday after the third set.

French Open semi-finalist Keys struggled for most of the match as she committed 48 unforced errors in a disappointing display.

Rodina, a 120th-ranked Russian qualifier, upset Keys 7-5, 5-7, 6-4.

Keys began play on Court 3 with objective and raced into a 5-2 lead in the opening set.

Monfils will next face eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson, who beat No. 25 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 after losing just eight of 61 points on his first serve.

The American player won five games in a row to level and then broke back to make it 4-4 in the third set, but Rodina earned another break to secure victory.

The 38-year-old, seeded ninth, was a set and a break down but battled back to square the match, only to lose 8-6 in the decider. I played well today.

Rodina, through to the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, was 0-15 against top-20 ranked opponents before the win.
