Zverev suffers more slam misery as Gulbis' run continues

4 seed, on Friday battled past United States' Taylor Fritz into Wimbledon's third round after winning 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2.

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. In addition, Ernests has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in his 11th appearance, becoming one of the players who needed to play more than 10 Wimbledons to book the place in the last 16 after Tommy Robredo, Jeremy Bates, Michael Llodra, Nicolas Mahut, Richey Reneberg and Marc Rosset.

'I showed in Paris and other matches that I don't really get exhausted in five-set matches. But I felt very low on energy.

'I saw that he was getting exhausted in the fifth set, ' the Latvian said in his post-match conference.

Alexander Zverev, the world number three, has been knocked out of Wimbledon after a shock defeat to qualifier Ernests Gulbis in the third round. "So I just started to play better".

"It never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision", Cibulkova said. "And I actually thought I didn't play that bad - I just started to feel very exhausted". "I hope he's going to go even further in the tournament".

The warning came with Ostapenko two breaks of serve down at 2-5 and on the verge of losing her first set at these championships. "It really messed with me for two balls, then I tried to just calm down, to play my game".

Juan Martín del Potro outpowered Benoît Paire 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-3. If I feel better, it might be two.

He was beaten in the fourth round a year ago. "Thought I'd go out there and try". But not during the tournament because I get affected by it.

Only three of the top 10 women's seeds remain in the Wimbledon running after Keys succumbed to Rodina 7-5, 5-7, 6-4, where the 23-year-old lost a 5-2 lead in the first set. "I think that's a very big difference".

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

Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber didn't have as much fortune, falling to US Open finalist Kevin Anderson 6-3, 7-5, 7-5.

The best Grand Slam showing for Gulbis was a run to the semifinals at the 2014 French Open, which included a win against Roger Federer.
