Roger Federer aiming to stop Adrian Mannarino’s ‘good run’ in fourth round

Roger Federer aiming to stop Adrian Mannarino’s ‘good run’ in fourth round

The 36-year-old will next face 22nd seed Adrian Mannarino of France, who beat Russian Daniil Medvedev, in the last 16.

The defending champion needed only an hour and 34 minutes to win 6-3, 7-5, 6-2, extending his run of consecutive sets won at Wimbledon to 29 and making him the most successful male player on the surface.

"It's good that I faced different types of opponents I think in this first week, and was able to find a way to get through", Federer said. Playing without fear, Tsitsipas is the first Greek man to reach the fourth round at any major in the Open Era.

Serena Williams and seventh-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova both won on Friday to avoid this year's surprising cull of favourites.

Three years ago, Canadian star Eugenie Bouchard turned heads by wearing a black bra under her white playing top. 6-4, 7-6 (6). That's probably what shocked me the most.

Meanwhile, fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev completed another five-set comeback, beating American Taylor Fritz 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2 in a match that was suspended Thursday after the third set.

Play was halted with Raonic ahead 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-5.

Congressman Andy Harris, R-Maryland, told the AP he wants to limit MAVNI and "prioritize enlisting American citizens". While many end up in the Army, there are also those who choose other military branches.

The seven-time champion came from a break down in the first set to get past Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2).

"This is only my second serious tournament back", Williams, who is returning from a maternity leave, said. I just feel like it's not really what you do in a practice with other guys.

Federer did not face a single break point and lost just three points on his first serve, with the only real moments of frustration coming as he pushed for a break in the second set, which eventually came in the 11th game. "I will never underestimate any opponent".

Williams is the only past Wimbledon champion remaining in the field. Just pretty insane, " said McDonald, who grew up in California, and now is based at the U.S. Tennis Association's main training facility in Florida.

A series of unexpected results have seen Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki all eliminated.

The Czech faces Dutch 20th seed Kiki Bertens, who stunned five-time Wimbledon victor Venus in the third round. She was allowed to play as the underwear was shorter than her dress.

So while tennis fans around the world start dreaming, hoping and longing that the two most successful players on planet tennis will renew their rivalry on the sport's greatest stage, there is one person who is definitely not keen on the idea.

Meanwhile, 13th seed Julia Goerges, Donna Vekic, Ekaterina Makarova, Camila Giorgi all progressed to the fourth round.
