Wimbledon 2018: Alexander Zverev survives scare to reach third round

Alexander Zverev reached the fourth round last year

Viewed as a capable successor to the era of the big four, Alexander Zverev is hoping to finally win a Grand Slam.

The 36-year-old Swiss, chasing a ninth title at the All England Club, extended his winning streak to 29 sets in a row.

In the women's draw, seven-times victor Serena Williams overcame her first big test in confident fashion by beating France's Kristina Mladenovic 7-5 7-6 (2). 'Yesterday I had pain during the whole three sets.

Venus, seeded ninth, was beaten 6-2 6-7 (5) 8-6 by Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens on Court One.

In the women's draw, the latest of the seeds has been eliminated as American Madison Keys, seeded 10, succumbed to a 7-5, 5-7, 6-4 defeat at the hands of Russian Evgeniya Rodina. I started to play smarter.

"I think he's a future grand slam victor", Gulbis said. I'll do the best I can to prepare myself for the hard courts now'. I asked the chair umpire how is it possible he plays that shot if it didn't bounce twice.

Karolina Pliskova, the seventh seed, is the only top 10 ranked player remaining, but she has never won a Major.

John Isner launched 21 aces in a comfortable 6-3 6-3 6-4 win over Moldova's Radu Albot.

The 19-year-old will faces United States ninth seed John Isner for a place in the quarter-finals.

Zverev will face Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis for a place in the last 16.

Neville thought 3 England stars would struggle at World Cup
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have ripped into Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud after his France performance at the World Cup. We know what it takes and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel", said the 29-year-old Liverpool player.

"This is only my second serious tournament back", said Williams, who is returning from a maternity leave. I didn't eat anything since yesterday.

Tsitsipas, seeded 31st, becomes the first Greek man to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam. The Czech faces Dutch 20th seed Kiki Bertens, who stunned five-time Wimbledon victor Venus in the third round. "I think he's going to be able to do it".

"I think the last two sets here showed my progress". I was very low energy.

The German star came back from one-set-down-to-two before prevailing 6-4 5-7 6-7 6-1 6-2 over Taylor Fritz of the United States to advance to the third round of Wimbledon.

"For me the most part of the second set and third set, for me we played in darkness".

'I showed in Paris and other matches that I don't really get exhausted in five-set matches.

I'm very calm. I try to find ways to win.

Gulbis, a former World No. 10 who famously defeated Roger Federer on his way to the French Open semifinals in 2014, will be playing in the last 16 at Wimbledon for the first time at the 11th attempt.

French Open semi-finalist Keys struggled for most of the match as she committed 48 unforced errors in a disappointing display.
