Zverev completes delayed match in five sets for Wimbledon progress

Alexander Zverev reveals how his attitude towards Roger Federer has changed

The 21-year-old German No 4 seed was knocked out in the third round of Wimbledon on Saturday by a superb comeback from one of tennis's forgotten men, Ernests Gulbis winning 7-6, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0 on No 1 Court.

Earlier, in the day, three-time champion Novak Djokovic silenced a raucous Centre Court crowd as he came back to beat home favourite Kyle Edmund 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 in the third round of Wimbledon. This is Gulbis' best performance at Wimbledon in 11 attempts and his win yesterday put him joint-second on the list of players with the most attempts before reaching the round of 16.

"Yesterday I had pain during the whole three sets", said Zverev, whose last five matches at a grand slam have gone to five sets.

Like Zverev, the 20-year-old Fritz is a former junior world No. 1 earmarked for great things but yet to truly arrive at the highest level.

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

"I saw that he was getting exhausted in the fifth set", said the Latvian, smiling.

"This is only my second serious tournament back", said Williams, who is returning from a maternity leave. If I don't play sport, I eat two kilograms a day'. "If I feel better, it might be two.' I thought I'd go out there and try".

Kontaveit won with a score of 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Fans Prepare For Sweden, England Quarter-Final Clash
England did well to beat Sweden , but it was a mismatch from an odds perspective. But I think they are going to make it very, very frustrating.

Whilst the Latvian does have a powerful first serve, his second is unreliable, so if he is forced to serve twice too often then Nishikori will likely take advantage. I'll do the best I can to prepare myself for the hard courts now'. In fact, tennis writer Ben Rothenberg wrote it was the fourth time in his last five wins at a major that he had to play the maximum five sets.

'I was exhausted from probably having a stomach bug, not eating for over 24 hours, ' he said.

"I think he's a future grand slam victor", Gulbis said.

"Today in the warm-up I was actually maybe thinking about it, not to play at all".

Gael Monfils eliminated last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey, winning 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2 to progress to the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time in his career.

"I am happy to be able to play in the third round tomorrow".

His only quarter-final result at the Grand Slams came at this year's French Open, where he lost 6-4, 6-2, 6-1 to Austria's Dominic Thiem.
