  • Spain's Rafael Nadal returns to Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin in their men's singles second round match on the fourth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon southwest London

Canada's Milos Raonic completed his delayed match from Friday as he came back to defeat Austrian Dennis Novak 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 7-5, 6-2.

Djokovic next plays Russian world number 40 Karen Khachanov.

"I'll go and watch some football -England, it's coming home or not?" he said in reference to a football song which is now being sung, hummed and whistled on nearly every street and in every pub. "I'm very happy", Hsieh added.

With nine of the top 10 women's seeds eliminated already, Hsieh has a chance to go deep into the tournament.

German fourth seed Alexander Zverev, who nearly quit his second round match through illness, faces Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis.

Asked when she thought she could win the match, Hsieh responded, “I dont feel I can, ” then leaned forward and laughed heartily.

Halep failed to carry on the momentum, and a huge forehand victor gave Hsieh the first break of the second set and a 2-1 lead.

Kerber will next meet Switzerland's Belinda Bencic, who ousted 27th seed Carla Suarez Navarro earlier on Saturday.

"Definitely I gave everything I had on the game side". "It is magical to play in front of the unbelievable fans here".

Some players on the tour eventually become jaded by the merry-go-round of hotels, cities and airports but the 2013 Wimbledon women's doubles champion likes to revel in the local colour wherever she goes.

Su will next face Dominika Cibulkova after the Slovakian world No 33 produced an impressive performance to defeat Belgian 15th seed Elise Mertens 6-1, 6-2.

"For me, I just try to enjoy the tennis, enjoy the city, enjoy the food". "I feel I'm really lucky to be a tennis player, stay here until the second week".

Halep, the Romanian who started as top seed in the women's singles, lost an epic three-set battle with Taiwan's world number 48 Hsieh Su-wei.

Simona Halep is the top seed in one of the most open Wimbledon draws in history, with her and Pliskova the last top ten seeds standing. Of the top 10 women, only No. 7 Karolina Pliskova reached the fourth round.

In the first round, she faced world #100 Kurumi Nara of Japan, racing past the 26-year-old 6-2 6-4.

The result ensures the Spaniard will retain his number one crown at the end of the tournament.

"It was a positive match against a player who is young with a lot of energy out there", he said.

"Anything", Halep said, "but tennis".

"I mean, I'm not surprised anymore", said 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko, a 6-0, 6-4 victor against Vitalia Diatchenko, who eliminated five-time major champion Maria Sharapova in the first round.

She faulted on her first serve, stepped away from the baseline, motioned to the crowd for some encouragement, and then served a slow, nearly flat second serve into the middle of the box.
