Everything you need to know about day three — Today at Wimbledon

07 Julio 2017

"It's really fun that I'm able to go home and spend time with my son", she said. She played brilliant and Hsieh wasn't her 'on point' self from when she defeated her British opponent a few months ago. If Nishikori plays at his brilliant best he should win, but Bautista Agut is a fearsome competitor who will ruthlessly expose any weakness in the Japanese superstar's game.

"Yesterday's match will have done her a lot of good, that's for sure".

Against Abanda in a matchup between two 20-year-olds, Ostapenko played her usual brand of high-risk, high-reward tennis, overcoming 39 unforced errors by compiling a 31-17 edge in winners.

Konta celebrates after advancing Wednesday at Wimbledon.

Fair enough. And France and Spain both have more players in round three.

Nadal will play 30th-seeded Karen Khachanov on Friday.

Not since the day of the Wimbledon final of 1977 - which saw Viriginia Wade beat Betty Stove to claim the title - has a Briton been favourite to win the Venus Rosewater Dish. Kvitova needed surgery on her left hand, the one she uses to swing a racket. She just made me play the extra ball. She resisted break points to hold for 4-2, held to love, and served out the set, 6-4.

"I try not to go out too much. She's probably just about scratching the surface, but we'll discuss the future once the present is over".

The 37-year-old veteran, devastated by the incident, broke down in tears on Monday when talking about the crash. I've been getting good practices in and I feel good.

"Whoever was going to draw the short straw was going to be hurting". And if I do, my coach said he'd shave his head.

"It's great to be a part of personally for me".

Andy Murray's hip looks just fine.

Williams came from a set down to beat Wang Qiang and set up a clash with Naomi Osaka - who beat 22nd seed Barbora Strycova.

After 67 minutes of draining tennis, the second set was even more topsy-turvy. The 2014 U.S. Open finalist lost to Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3.

After the match ended, both players shook hands with chair umpire Mariana Alves. He may have to get his wallet out again soon, though.

This will be Konta's first appearance in the Wimbledon women's singles third round, where she will meet Greece's Maria Sakkari. In the second set, I felt the same. But it also took Konta to her first third round at Wimbledon.

Their victories at SW19 bode well for Andy Murray, who is second up on Centre Court.

And these days, she relishes the big challenges.

Azarenka next faces British wildcard Heather Watson who also upset the form book. But at 5-4 Azarenka, the two-time grand slam winner, held her nerve to serve out for a memorable win. Konta won a tense tie-break, taking it for the loss of four points to take an early advantage. Murray follows against Dustin Brown.

The last time Britain could boast two women in the third round of Wimbledon, Wham! was number one in the charts with The Edge of Heaven and Steaua Bucharest had recently shocked Barcelona in the final of the European Cup.
