Djokovic blasts 'whistling, coughing' Wimbledon crowd

Kyle Edmund's straight-sets victory over Bradley Klahn saw him into the Wimbledon third round for the first time

149 and isn't featuring The Championships The 23-year-old beat Australian qualifier Alex Bolt in straight sets in the first round and another qualifier Bradley Klahn in the second round in straight sets and is now set to play against 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic.

If there was a feel-good factor on Centre Court in the immediate aftermath of England reaching the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, it was soon enhanced as the home favourite claimed the first set despite landing less than half of his first serves. "I think Kyle is ready". "I don't mind either way".

Nishikori, runner-up at the U.S. Open in 2014, has twice previously made it through to the last 16 at the All England Club.

The World Cup draw has pitted "Team Edmund" against one another, with the Yorkshireman and coach Mark Hilton backing England while his other coach, Fredrik Rosengren, is Swedish. I don't really know what to say.

And the players walked out on to Centre - which had a sparse crowd watching the preceding match between Angelique Kerber and Naomi Osaka - just moments after England wrapped up victory. Hopefully I'll get to watch the match.

"[Dele] Alli scored the header, me and Hilts [Hilton] my coach were obviously loving it, Fidde [Rosengren] wasn't loving it".

"That's why you put in all the hard work and the countless hours to put yourself in situations like that, playing the best in the world on the biggest stage".

After a hard 12 months which followed his injury-enforced withdrawal in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, Djokovic is again resembling the player who went to world number one and collected 12 Grand Slam titles.

Hsieh Su-Wei of Chinese Taipei earned the biggest win of her singles career on Saturday after upsetting world number 1 Simona Halep of Romania 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 in the third round of the Wimbledon tennis championships.

"No, the crowd was very fair when I played against Andy", Djokovic said. "For sure, there's always that massive respect", the young Brit said. I'm playing in front of the British crowd. "That's one thing I didn't like".

"He's obviously playing well, winning pretty comfortably both matches". But we'll see. Every match is different.

"I thought the crowd's reaction was quite unnecessary".

However, his run to the semi-finals at the Australian Open earlier this year underline his undoubted class and the U.S. hard court season presents a big opportunity for more gains, as he seeks to better a fourth round appearance at Flushing Meadows two years ago. Three years ago, Suarez Navaro had beaten Bencic at Stuttgart in a clay-court duel, but the Swiss player emerged victorious on Wimbledon's grass. Over the years, the Serb has never really received the same support as Federer and Nadal, despite his incredible haul of trophies and records.
