Federer into Wimbledon fourth round for 15th time

With the loss by Kerber, either Simona Halep or Karolina Pliskova will take over as the top-ranked player after the tournament. But I was hearing a lot of comments from the other players.

Wimbledon officials would be wise to take the players' comments into account as the second week of the tournament continues, because those complaints have come from players up and down the draw. "I expect that every time I have played him he has become better". The second is the lack of evenness of the surface - which Djokovic said was pocked with "a lot of...small, different holes", and Murray likened it to a well-worn golf fairway ("there's quite big lumps of grass, sort of nearly like little divots there"). But, you know, might be interesting for some people to see. It changes color. And that bit can be slippery.

Nadal is keen for a continuation of the hot dry conditions of the first week, but some light rain is also forecast to intrude. So that's why, maybe. Raonic played great last year to reach the final, but has not backed it up this year.

Alongside Murray, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Venus Williams are all targeting places in the quarterfinals.

After his victories over Alexander Bublik, Dustin Brown and Fabio Fognini, Murray again finds himself up against an unorthodox opponent.

Murray will play Sam Querrey on Wednesday. If he doesn't serve well enough, then Nadal will be able to pin him back, a position from which few can beat the Spaniard, and Muller certainly can't. She's the top seed and has looked good at Wimbledon, a welcome change after she lost in the first round of the French Open. No. 18 Roberto Bautista Agut, No. 8 Dominic Thiem vs.

Federer has earned remarkable support from the Wimbledon fans over the years, and that has continued this year.

The 26-year-old Dimitrov, who has never beaten Federer in their five meetings, has often been compared to the 18-time major victor for his sparkling style of play. No. 13 Grigor Dimitrov, 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic vs. That's an excellent sign for continuing to advance.

Things on the women's side are more varied as far as the age barometer is concerned.

Amazon Ramps up Efforts to Take on Best Buy's Geek Squad
Best Buy is also placing an increased emphasis on customer service in relation to "smart home" technology in recent months. The offering, which is already available in a bunch of West Coast markets, has been quietly rolled out to this point.

In the women's singles, Garbine Muguruza thrashed Romania's Sorana Cirstea 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday to set up a fourthround meeting with Angelique Kerber in a battle of the last two Wimbledon runners- up.

"That's how people win tournaments - they fight". Caroline Garcia and Garbiñe Muguruza (16) and CoCo Vandeweghe (19) have also been stingy.

Seventh-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova is playing well at Wimbledon after struggling on the grass courts in previous years. The move worked wonders as the Swiss giant ended his four-year Grand Slam title drought at Australian Open earlier in January.

"I have to try to reach that level, to try to maintain that level because evidently the level was very high".

After skulking Murray around the practice courts for the past week, it's fair to say the world number one is moving better than ever here this SW19 fortnight.

Stay unbeaten against Dimitrov and Federer will stroll into the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the 15th time. And instead of just men, I'll just run through all 16! However, the presence of Federer usually brings out the best in Djokovic. I see Djokovic prevailing in 3 tight sets or four for this matchup. He would have to win a Grand Slam in 2019 to beat Rosewall's record.

Halep is playing with something to prove, as she is nearly certainly the best player in the world without a major championship. She has never advanced past that stage.

Rather than wilt in the third set, the No.30 seed was determined to enjoy his moment, and he pushed Federer close in some entertaining rallies which drew gasps from Centre Court.
