Adrian Mannarino looks to put end to Roger Federer’s Wimbledon 'artistry'

Aussie youngster Alex de Minaur braces for Rafael Nadal challenge

German fourth seed Alexander Zverev and women's world number one Simona Halep wilted in 33-degree heat and crashed out of Wimbledon in the third round on Saturday (Jul 7).

Earlier in the day, U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys also struggled to find her rhythm in her 7-5 5-7 6-4 defeat by Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina.

Seven-times champion Williams rallied from 5-3 down in the second set to put away France's Kristina Mladenovic 7-5 7-6 (7-2).

Roger Federer is disappointed he will not get a Wimbledon semi-final match-up with Marin Cilic.

"I work very hard every day to be a better player and I now think I can beat these kind of players", Mannarino said.

He fired 18 aces and 61 winners past Zverev who said he felt he had been "unplugged" in the fourth set. "I think it just helps me with keeping it exciting for me, as well, with options". Only one of the top 10 women's seeds remains after an upset-filled Week 1: No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, the 2016 U.S. Open runner-up.

De Minaur valiantly saved two match points before Nadal confirmed victory with a short, sharp volley after two hours and two minutes. She sat out Wimbledon previous year while pregnant. The 36-year-old may add a few more wins to that tally next week and you might see a few more SABRs.

"The Spaniard faces Jiri Vesely in the fourth round on Monday, but it's a potential quarter-final meeting with 6'4" Juan Martin del Potro that has set the tongues wagging. "I mean, if you told me I'd be in the second week of Wimbledon before the tournament, I wouldn't believe you". "You have to win the last point, and I didn't succeed in that today".

Is Justin Bieber Engaged To Hailey Baldwin?
Meanwhile, Justin's mum, Pattie Mallette , simply tweeted out the words " Love Love Love Love Love Love Love ", yesterday. Baldwin's father, actor Stephen Baldwin , all but confirmed the engagement in a tweet Sunday .

However, Nadal noted that rankings were not his priority.

But, most importantly, they are fit and healthy at the same time and showing signs that a blockbuster rematch might be on the cards come July 15 as they have both reached the fourth round at the grasscourt championships without dropping a set. "I don't know how far I will go in this tournament, but I'm confident with my game at this time", the Argentine said.

Struff appeared to settle down in the next set, getting accustomed to Centre Court, but Federer produced the only break of serve in the 11th game to serve out the set 7-5.

But the Serb managed to refocus after a lengthy complaint to umpire Jake Garner.

"I played Pella, as well, before in Stuttgart on the grass. It didn't make sense".

The former US Open victor, who made the semi-finals in 2013, next faces unseeded Gilles Simon of France.

Williams is the fourth former women's champion to get knocked out, joining Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova and last year's victor Garbine Muguruza. If he beats Milos Raonic, seeded 13, he would play either his compatriot John Isner - 10 years older than him but still hungry for success - or the youngest player left in the draw, the 19-year-old rising Greek star Stefanos Tstitsipas.
