Wimbledon: Kerber survives scare to advance

Angelique Kerber celebrates as she defeated Kirsten Flipkens to reach the third round

"I'm stronger, also mentally and my game". "When you go to a Grand Slam, you always want to have your full team, because it's very important".

When Muguruza played two sloppy shots to go 15-40 down in the game, she took her chance to break and go serving for the set.

Williams, the No. 10 seed, defeated No. 27 Ana Konjuh 6-3, 6-2 to move into the quarterfinals for the second straight year.

Magdalena Ribarykova - who ousted tournament favourite Karolina Pliskova in Round 2 - has been a revelation here, as has World No. 88 Petra Martic - whom she now faces.

"I think it's just step by step".

On court 12, Jelena Ostapenko continued her dream run to the second Grand Slam quarter-final in a row.

Riske, who won the match, said afterward that the dirt "is like ice".

"Oh, dear - she's still not able to beat an elite player", someone might tut-tut from a distance.

His 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (7/3) win against Russian 30th seed Karen Khachanov equalled the Spaniards personal record of 28 successive sets won at Grand Slams, a blistering streak dating back to this years Australian Open final.

Venus and Ostapenko have never squared off against one another. "It was tough to find my rhythm actually". "I know she had an amazing moment there".

Fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki also lost on Monday, falling to No. 24 Coco Vandeweghe.

On Friday, there were several other sports stars in the Royal Box, including David Beckham and Sergio Garcia. The surface details say that she lost a copious quantity of rankings points by losing in the fourth round this year after making the Wimbledon final last year.

She regained composure and looked less flamboyant than last year but surely more solid and consistent than she had been this season.

"Sometimes girls win 6-1 6-2 and I don't know if it is for spectators, but sometimes it's boring".

Men's 3rd rd: Tomas Berdych (Cze) bt David Ferrer (Esp) 6-3 6-4 6-3, Adrian Mannarino (Fra) bt Gael Monfils (Fra) 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 5-7 6-3 6-2, Milos Raonic (Can) bt Albert Ramos (Esp) 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 7-5, Sam Querrey (USA) bt Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (Fra) 6-2 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 1-6 7-5, Grigor Dimitrov (Bul) bt Dudi Sela (Isr) 6-1 6-1 ret.

Simona Halep of Romania could unseat Kerber at the top of the rankings but she has the imposing presence of Victoria Azarenka, quickly back in form after her maternity leave, standing between her and a place in the quarter-finals.

In 1979 Knight was charged with assault on a policeman while he was coaching the U.S. basketball team during the Pan American Games in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

"It was heartbreaking to see her that way", said a visibly shaken Cirstea.

"When I came here, I was telling myself, I was practising good after Paris". "That's just tennis", he said.

Rogers managed to fight off an early finish by holding service for 5-4, but Kerber prevailed by gaining double match point and closing out the match on the second match point with a solid serve to Rogers' backhand that Rogers returned long.
