top-ten seeds Caroline
Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina, Caroline Garcia and Petra Kvitova in being knocked out in the first four days.

"She played big, took a lot of risk and it worked for her".

"But it's a little bit sad because I wanted to really go out there".

Kerber came through a battle with 18-year-old reigning Wimbledon girls' singles champion Claire Liu, the two-time grand slam victor rallying to triumph 3-6 6-2 6-4.

The third seed has been beaten in three sets by Belgian Alison van Uytvanck in fading light.

We have to defend as well as we can and then cause them pain when we have the ball. If we play well, we can create a lot of chances.


In their last six matches, Cilic won one and four went to a deciding set, including this year's Australian Open final.

"I always want to play on the bigger courts, but it's just how the scheduling works, I can't say anything now".

He trails 6-4, 5-7, 6-7. Uytvanck, who is openly gay and in a relationship with fellow Belgian pro 20-year-old Greet Minnen, said, "I mean, I'm not sick".

Muguruza's defeat leaves just top seed Simona Halep, number 7 Karolina Pliskova and 10th seed Madison Keys as the remaining top-ranked contenders after two rounds.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios will square off with Japan's Kei Nishikori in round three.

With a second chance to serve out the set, the defending champion was quick to build a 40-0 lead and a forehand that just clipped the baseline put the third seed in front after 48 minutes of play. Next up for Uytvanck is Estonia's 28th seed Anett Kontaveit, who'll she play on Saturday.

Uytvanck beat the Spaniard 5-7, 6-2, 6-1.

"I felt much more confident in my game, I served better and I felt so pumped", said Pella, who reached the third round of a major for the first time.

Meanwhile, Johanna Konta's hopes of another deep run at Wimbledon came to an end at the hands of Dominika Cibulkova in the second round.

"Well, I was looking for this match for years, but I never expected it to be here in Wimbledon against Cilic", said Pella, whose sister Catalina is ranked 300th on the women's tour.

Godina made the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time. "It seems like it's nothing major".

Australia's Ashleigh Barty beat Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 7-5 in a match between former Wimbledon girls champions.

A new report from The Information states that the company is aiming for the technology to make its way to call centers as well. Suddenly the world was anxious that people in the future would not know whether they were talking to humans or machines.
