Zverev suffers more slam misery as Gulbis' run continues

Zverev suffers more slam misery as Gulbis' run continues

He then played the enigmatic Bernard Tomic and was again pushed, eventually getting over the line a 2-6 6-3 7-6 7-5 victor after nearly three hours.

"It's a wonderful feeling walking out there, I try to put on a good match and try hard every time, regardless of how many times I've played at Wimbledon".

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.

The difference, reckoned Gulbis, came down to experience, because of the fact he is eight years older than the 21-year-old Zverev.

"I think I can be very happy today", said Federer, who will next face France's Adrian Mannarino.

To her credit, Keys fought from 4-0 down in the second set to level the match but the 48 unforced errors she made proved to be the making of her own downfall.

Nishikori played some of his best tennis in the first week of Wimbledon and has deservedly won through to the round of 16.

"This is only my second serious tournament back", said Williams, who is returning from a maternity leave.

Hsieh of Taiwan protested to the Chinese umpire in a language that Cibulkova couldn't understand, before the match referee became involved as calls of "replay the point" came from a bemused crowd on Court 18.

Gulbis said: 'I think he's a future Grand Slam victor. If I feel better, it might be two. It felt like somebody just unplugged me in the middle of the fourth set. He'd never attempted that before and is now the first male qualifier to get to the fourth round in six years. "I realised that he was getting exhausted, yes, so". I mean, the way he plays.

The mercurial Frenchman beat last year's semi-finalist 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2 on Centre Court. It helped me we stopped at the third.

Despite being widely-tipped to be a Grand Slam threat, it was another let-down for Zverev whose run to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last month remains his best performance at the Majors.
