Roger Federer stretches Wimbledon streak to 29 sets with win

Roger Federer

Something, Austria's junior singles player Jurij Rodionov had to endure a year ago when he was sent off the court after officials twice checked his underwear on the court and determined it was too dark to meet the tournament's dress code.

The 19-year-old went down 6-1 6-2 6-4 in the third round but was far from disgraced at the end of a week where he has enjoyed his best run at a grand slam.

"I'm disappointed for him because he's a good guy", Federer said of Cilic's exit.

"He's very energetic player, very quick", said Nadal.

"It's an incredible feeling, and I feel very proud I represent Greece and that all of my hard work has paid off, " Tsitsipas said.

Roger Federer and Serena Williams will be expected to maintain their flawless progress at Wimbledon as the title favourites head into the fourth round looking to survive the tournament's giant-killing carnage on Monday.

Djokovic, who saw off Britain's Kyle Edmund in round three, faces the rising Russian Karen Khachanov, who has gone one round better than a year ago. 6-4, 7-6 (6).

The 6-1 6-2 6-4 triumph ensured Nadal reached the fourth round at the All England Club for an eighth time.

Anderson earlier became the first man through to the fourth round after beating Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3 7-5 7-5.

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).

The 36-year-old American will face another mother in the fourth round Monday: 120th-ranked qualifier Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation, who upset No. 10 seed Madison Keys of the U.S. "I can only really practice it with my coach".

Federer did not face a single break point and lost just three points on his first serve, with the only real moments of frustration coming as he pushed for a break in the second set, which eventually came in the 11th game. Her opponent today, another mother in the world No 120 Evgeniya Rodina, beat the 10th seed Madison Keys in the previous round.

Pliskova's opponent in the next round, Kiki Bertens, will be brimming confidence after knocking out five-times champion and ninth seed Venus Williams. She was allowed to play as the underwear was shorter than her dress.

Williams is the fourth former women's champion to get knocked out, joining Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova and last year's victor Garbine Muguruza.

Milos Raonic's match against Dennis Novak was suspended due to fading light in the third set, with Raonic leading 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-5.

Despite the disappointment of defeat, De Minaur said he'd treasure the experience of facing one of the all-time greats of the modern game on the most famous tennis court in the world.
