Wimbledon 2018: Predicting Men and Women's Finals Before Week 2

Wimbledon Day 5 Live

The first set horror-show and an apparent groin injury did not stop the world number 26 from becoming the first man to earn break points against Federer at the All England Club this year.

If Federer and Nadal advance to the final, they'd meet in the championship 10 years after one of their best Wimbledon battles, a five-set masterpiece won by Nadal.

67 - Consecutive service games won at Wimbledon by Federer, a streak that dates to last year's semifinals.

No. 2 seed Nadal, a two-time champion, tries to get back to the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the first time since 2011, meeting 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic, while No. 12 Djokovic, who's won Wimbledon three times, meets 40th-ranked Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation.

With the draw opening up in her favour, Williams is widely expected to make history with a first Grand Slam title since the birth of her daughter Olympia in September previous year.

We could only prove our worth by working hard", said Cherchesov. "We felt your support from the first second". We succeeded but we have to keep going forward".


Anderson has reached the last 16 for the fourth time and goes on to face France's Gael Monfils.

Eight-time champion Federer lost just five points in a devastating opening set which he won 6-0 in less than 17 minutes.

Roger Federer has breezed into the fourth round of Wimbledon to the surprise of pretty much no one.

All remaining men's and women's singles title challengers are in action, with a Centre Court lineup that includes Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal.

Had the Swiss not squandered four break points in the opening game of the second set, which lasted nearly as long as the entire opener, Federer would probably have not needed an hour and 45 minutes to get back into the locker room.

She spoke ahead of a potentially testy summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organization nations to be held in Brussels July 11-12. They'll have to, as always, hastily craft policies for whatever the boss might agree to - or reject - in Europe.


"They have been a positive four matches, I haven't played on grass for a year and I'm hoping to keep enjoying it".

The blow appeared to suck the life out of Mannarino and he was broken in the next game before Federer served out for the match.

Bertens and Pliskova had reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time.

She next faces Italy's Camila Giorgi who saved a match point to beat Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-2.

Leading 5-4 and two points away from taking the first set at 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova struck a backhand onto the baseline that was called out.

England's Gareth Southgate: Young squad 'not the finished article' yet
The Mirror says FA chiefs are confident Southgate will snub any big club job if he is head-hunted after the World Cup. Despite reaching the semifinals, Southgate was keen to stress that his players were still developing.
