Gulbis, Ostapenko, Kontaveit through to 3rd round at Wimbledon

Germany’s Alexander Zverev

Zverev, playing for the third day in succession, was shocked by Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis, ranked 138, in a gruelling five sets, 7-6 (2), 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.

The result was particularly surprising considering that Gulbis had just one main-draw victory on the ATP World Tour this season coming into Wimbledon, where he had to battle through qualifying and now has won his first three main-draw matches.

And still, he can boast of a better Grand Slam performance on his resume than the 21-year-old Zverev, whose only major quarterfinal was last month at Roland Garros. I was very low energy.

"I saw that he was getting exhausted in the fifth set", said the Latvian, smiling.

A win in last 16 could see him potentially face 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals.

Nishikori played some of his best tennis in the first week of Wimbledon and has deservedly won through to the round of 16. "I'm not having any pain so I am able to hit the two-handed backhand more often, which is good for my whole game", he said.

"I just came out with a very different mindset", said Raonic.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko was given a code violation for receiving coaching while beating Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus 7-6 (4), 6-0.

"That was my plan to do in the second set and in the third, and obviously it worked well". If I feel better, it might be two. I felt my mind go, you know, and move on.

'I was exhausted from probably having a stomach bug, not eating for over 24 hours, ' he said. We played in dark for an hour.

Gael Monfils eliminated last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey, winning 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2 to progress to the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time in his career. "Obviously she's so aggressive, so if I would keep letting her play, I would lose anyway", she said of her approach that saw her finish with 29 winners against 22 unforced errors.

Meanwhile, South Africa's Kevin Anderson booked a place at The Championships, Wimbledon fourth round after defeating Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 in two hours and seven minutes.
