Former champion Venus crashes out of Wimbledon in third round

Nick Kyrgios

If anyone doubted Serena Williams was worth consideration as a victor of this tournament for an eighth time - let alone the 25th seeding that has caused a minor stir in the locker room - she provided the most emphatic statement of intent with her third straight-sets win of the week to reach the fourth round on a wave of growing self-belief.

Djokovic has now made the third round for 10 consecutive years and will face either British 21st seed Kyle Edmund or United States qualifier Bradley Klahn.

Cilic last bowed out in the second round in 2013.

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I try to put on a good match and try hard every time, regardless of how many times I've played at Wimbledon". Ekaterina Makarova came out on top of Lucie Safarova 4-6, 6-4, 6-1; while Camila Girogi survived Katerina Siniakova to advance to the Round of 16.

Stan Wawrinka also exited, losing to Italian qualifier Thomas Fabbiano 7-6 (7) 6-3 7-6 (6).

The 20-year-old is ranked 68th and has never been to the third round at a grand slam tournament.

Nadal was warned again by Bernardes before the start of the third set.

The 36-year-old Swiss extended his winning streak to 29 consecutive sets at the All England Club.

Del Potro faces Benoit Paire in the third round after the Frenchman upset 26th-seeded Canadian Denis Shapovalov.

Asked if he had any doubts about being fit for Wimbledon's third round, Queen's Club runner-up Djokovic said: "No".

'I am really happy, ' she said, according to The Telegraph.

"I think most is self-belief, especially with him".

"I knew it was going to be a tough match, so I went onto the court with the determination and intensity, thinking I can't make any mistakes". Querrey's career-best finish came at Wimbledon 2017 - where he was a semifinalist - but he won't improve upon that this year.

The Serb next faces home hope Kyle Edmund, a 6-4 7-6 (7-0) 6-2 victor over American Bradley Klahn.

Nick Kyrgios eased past Robin Haase 6-3 6-4 7-5, to book a third-round clash with Kei Nishikori, who accounted for Bernard Tomic 2-6 6-3 7-6 (9/7) 7-5.

The British duo were handed a wildcard to compete in their first Grand Slam.
