Madison Keys latest seed to suffer surprise exit

Madison Keys latest seed to suffer surprise exit

Rodina made the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time.

Nadal will face Australian teenager Alex De Minaur next.

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.

They traded breaks mid-set and Mladenovic did well to hold from 15-40 in the 10th game - just seven points from going out of the tournament.

The solitary break of the opener proved enough for Federer to take the initiative in the contest. "So many top players have lost - and technically I'm not a top player".

"The rain coming helped me a lot", the 28-year-old, who had not won a match at Wimbledon in his two previous visits before this year, told BBC Sport.

"I tried to hit the ball hard and fight for every ball and I think in the end that's why I won".




Unfortunately, in the important moments the world's number 77 player couldn't grasp the nettle.

Guido Pella of Argentina took out last year's beaten finalist Marin Cilic of Croatia in the second round at Wimbledon.

The world number one was preparing for his Wimbledon second round match against Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin on Centre Court.

After defending champion Garbine Muguruza suffered a shock exit in the second round on Thursday, it was 10th seed Keys' turn to endure an unexpected 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 third round defeat.

The 11-time French Open champion is looking for his third title at the All England Club and first since 2010.

No. 8 Kevin Anderson beat No. 25 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 after losing just eight of 61 points on his first serve, while Gael Monfils of France advanced to the fourth round for the first time by knocking out last year's semifinalist Sam Querrey 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.
