Konta the last British woman standing after beating Sakkari

Bedene, who has never made the fourth round of a Grand Slam, found 16th-seeded Muller too strong. "However, it's a massive compliment to have former players think highly of me". But this time it would very different. It could well be time for a fresh winner.

Five-time champion Williams is trying to concentrate on tennis against the backdrop of the impending legal action she faces back home in the United States over a fatal car crash. This should pose more of a problem and Fognini won their most recent match in Rome in May in straight sets.

"What Andy has done for our sport, and the awareness he has brought over the years, is only positive".

"When the fans were rooting for her, she really delivered".

Kerber had a lot of unforced errors, but overcame the challenges to register her 50th grass-court victory. "I'm looking forward to seeing him out on Centre Court". A big cheer sent her on her way into the last 16.

"It's a big step up in class", he said. Then warning bells rang for the Briton at the start of the third as he conceded a quick break. It seems to be working for Johanna Konta.

Medvedev threw coins at the umpire's chair before apologizing for the bizarre gesture which he insisted was not meant to imply the official was corrupt.

"I trusted my game against her - she played better than last time we faced each other but so did I".

Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal continued to advance unabated in the draw.

The former No. 1 from Belarus, who gave birth to her first child in December, advanced to the fourth round by beating Heather Watson 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 on Centre Court.

"I do not try to go out too much". Gills played five sets, so we'll see. Whenever she is not playing tennis, she enjoys going back to Greece to see her friends.

The four British players, plus Kyle Edmund, who won his first-round match on Tuesday, make it Britain's best second-round showing at Wimbledon since 2012.

The pick clearly appeared to be Kvitova after their respective performances to prepare for Wimbledon, but it was Azarenka who advanced on Wednesday into Round 3, thumping 2016 semifinalist Elena Vesnina, 6-3, 6-3.

And Konta said afterwards: "I'm very happy with that, it was gusty out there and not easy".

"I believe that I can have a good run here".

She changed racquets immediately after that game and it was smooth sailing from there.

Sixth seed Johanna Konta savoured a rousing triumph on Centre Court after she and compatriot Heather Watson ensured a landmark day for British tennis at Wimbledon.

Watson, 25, said: "Vika is an incredible player and person". She was serving well.

Azarenka also lost the first set in her opening match, but that was only her third match since her return.
