Angelique Kerber Relieved to Reach Wimbledon Fourth Round

Garbine Muguruza reacts during her match against Angelique Kerber

Kerber was the runner-up to Serena Williams at the Grand Slam event past year during her breakthrough season.

With her forehand starting to prove a particularly potent weapon, Kerber duly dominated the second-set tie-break, levelling the match at the second time of asking despite having to delay her serve due to the unwelcome attentions of a wasp. "I thought I raised the level of tennis", said Djokovic after making the second week without dropping a set.

She will next play the Spaniard Garbine Muguruza, the 2015 runner-up, who breezed through with victory over Sorana Cirstea.

"I did a lot of things well today", Raonic said.

The German was the beaten finalist at Wimbledon past year but has not been in the same form in 2017 and could lose her place at the top of the rankings at the end of this tournament. "Comparing to the first couple of matches and the last couple of weeks I think this was the most focused I was on the court".

The deft Radwanska, who lost the 2012 final to Serena Williams, came back from a set down to beat Swiss 19th seed Timea Bacsinszky 3-6, 6- 4, 6-1 on Centre Court. "I have to be aggressive, as well, and try to play my game from the first ball that we hit".

Gasoline Prices Hit a Pre-July 4th Dip
OPEC members in May agreed to extend those production caps another nine months, but disappointed investors who wanted deeper cuts. Consumers may be enjoying historically low gas prices, but that may soon change, analyst Dan McTeague told CNBC on Monday.

American Sam Querrey, seeded No. 24, took only four minutes on court Saturday to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga France 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-5.

"I told myself to try to be aggressive", said Querrey, who reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals previous year. "I am a little disappointed as I didn't keep my level up throughout the whole match but if you had said I would make the third round of the main draw I would have been happy", Hercog told AFP.

The 29-year-old arrived in London with just one quarter-final showing in her past five events but, with the pregnant Williams out of the picture, Kerber now senses an opportunity to add a Wimbledon trophy to her 2016 Australian Open crown.

But last year's Australian and US Open victor broke again to lead 4-3 and then held twice to book her place in the last 16. I started getting better and better there.

Meanwhile, CoCo Vandeweghe won the All-American matchup with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Alison Riske.

Unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia advanced to the fourth round for the first time with a 6-2, 6-1 beating of Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine. "The last time I played her here, I lost the match, so".
