Kerber survives Rogers scare, Muguruza ready for week two

The World No 1 defeated her Belgian opponent in two straight sets to advance to the last 32

The World No 1 defeated her Belgian opponent in two straight sets to advance to the last 32

Gulbis, now ranked at a lowly 589 after once reaching 10 in the world in 2014 when he defeated Roger Federer on his way to the French Open semi-finals, fired 37 unforced errors to Djokovic's meagre 12. I think I kind of found a good level, good shots, good serve, playing against her.

"I definitely will take some confidence from this win today" Rogers said.

Vandeweghe has now made it into the second week of Wimbledon for the past two years, and credits the experience of making the quarter-finals in 2015 and the fourth round last year as helping her current campaign.

Kerber was a break down in the second set but did just enough to claw her way into the fourth round where she will face Garbine Muguruza, after World No. 15 raced into the fourth round with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Sorana Cirstea. "But as the match went on, I felt like I was dictating more so from the baseline". She played very well from the first point.

The third-round match was suspended Friday by darkness after 2 hours, 54 minutes with Querrey leading 6-5 in the fifth set.

"But I think it's a completely different match than the last three matches I had here". Kerber won her first two major titles at the Australian Open and U.S. Open in 2016. "I am a little disappointed as I didn't keep my level up throughout the whole match but if you had said I would make the third round of the main draw I would have been happy", Hercog told AFP.

GST taxes items classed as "luxury" goods more highly, and the classification system has sparked controversy among traders. Ramanathan said theaters were shut due to "our inability to pay taxes and our move is not against the government".

But last year's Australian and US Open victor broke again to lead 4-3 and then held twice to book her place in the last 16. In the second set, I was starting to feeling the ball better and better.

But Kerber had awoken and put a huge amount of pressure on the Rogers serve once again, breaking for the third time in the match to serve at 4-3.

Vandeweghe, considered by some as a dark horse for the title, beat compatriot Alison Riske 6-2, 6-4.

Wozniacki was another who had to come from behind to get the better of Anett Kontaveit, winning 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-2, while Kuznetsova, Magdalena Rybarikova, Coco Vandeweghe and qualifier Petra Martic put on impressive displays to progress in straight sets.
