It's mum v mum as Serena makes Wimbledon last 16

It's mum v mum as Serena makes Wimbledon last 16

Here's all the results and highlights from today's play.

Third seed Marin Cilic let a two-set lead slip as he was knocked out in the second round of Wimbledon by Argentina's Guido Pella.

Federer is having no such problems and eased past Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3 7-5 6-2. "It was such a tough match and such a big fight so I'm really happy that I won this one", Bertens said. "I felt my mind go and move on". I have worked really, really, really hard and it has been a long arduous road.

"It's true, I favoured him in that section together with maybe (Milos) Raonic".

Serena Williams, the seven-time Wimbledon victor, is seeded 25th after her tentative return from the birth of her first child.

Monfils made it through to the fourth round for the first time after beating Sam Querrey.

Djokovic beat Argentine Horacio Zeballos 6-1 6-2 6-3 to reach the last 31 for the 10th consecutive year.

Monfils will tackle Anderson in the next round, and he enjoys a 5-0 winning record over the South African.

And the world number 82 held his nerve to convert his fourth match point and win 3-6 1-6 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 7-5. Williams is 6-0 in sets so far this open, although three of those sets have gone to extra games.

Complicating matters further for the Rockets is the continued speculation about where Kawhi Leonard will play next season. ET on Sunday night, less than one hour after the four-time NBA MVP announced his intention to sign with the Lakers.

The Greek was a straight-sets victor against Thomas Fabbiano, triumphing 6-2 6-1 6-4.

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

Zverev had trailed two sets to one when his tie with Fritz was halted due to darkness on Thursday.

Heather Watson and her partner Tatjana Maria also ensured they had a place in the third round of the women's doubles with a routine 6-3 6-1 win over Raquel Atawo and Anna-Lena Gronefeld. I played well today.

Pliskova avoided the cull by beating Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 later in the afternoon. She couldn't do the same this time.

Madison Keys became the latest top-10 seed to bow out of Wimbledon after a dramatic defeat by world number 120 Evgeniya Rodina.

Helping the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club live up to its name, the stars of Wimbledon tried their hand at croquet, and quite a few of them showed some potential.

Keys, who has only reached one quarter-final at Wimbledon despite a powerful game, said she had made the mistake of allowing herself to think about a possible fourth-round clash with seven-times champion Serena Williams.

She joins defending champion Garbine Muguruza, world number two Caroline Wozniacki, two-time champion Petra Kvitova and US Open victor Sloane Stephens in falling in the first week.
