Keys out as Wimbledon seeds keep falling

Rafael Nadal Israel's Dudi Sela knocked out of Wimbledon in 1st round by Rafael Nadal

Eight-time champion Roger Federer moved a step closer to a record-breaking Wimbledon title with a straight-sets victory over Jan-Lennard Struff in the third round.

Serena took her Wimbledon winning streak to 17 matches, thanks in part to 13 aces. I really favoured Marin in that match. It's been a long, arduous road. "I am having a good season - made the quarters at the French Open - it's all coming together". "It will be much more of a strategic match, I believe, the way Mannarino plays", Federer said. Others will see it as nonsense, whatever the seedings say.

The defeat of the U.S. Open runner-up meant she became the seventh casualty in the top 10 women's seeds before the middle weekend.

Williams had to fight for her win, though.

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

Keys then netted a forehand, her 48th unforced error of the match, to hand the Russian victory. That turned ankle was also the turning point of the match. Williams is 6-0 in sets so far this open, although three of those sets have gone to extra games.

Makarova, who has reached the round of 16 at the All England Club for the third time, will next face Italy's Camila Giorgi, who advanced after saving a match point while beating Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-6 (6), 6-2.

Once Williams was ready, she headed out to the court to face Kristina Mladenovic. Two exquisite winners gave her hope of survival but two double faults betrayed her nerves.

'Mama is nearly done in here, 'Williams tells Alexis as the baby girl reaches up for her mom to pick her up.

The shootout was made for Williams, the greatest server in the business.

Williams was defeated by Bertens' outstanding forehand, but her third-round appearance is her best of 2018.

Her reappearance here has invested the tournament with much of its old majesty.

Isner will face world No.31 Stefanos Tsitsipas, the first Greek man to first Greek man to reach the fourth round of a grand slam in the 50-year professional era, for a quarterfinal berth. After taking the first set 7-5, he went on to lose the last three. Williams is moving and hitting as if she could do it at the first attempt.
