Once top-10, qualifier Gulbis tops No. 4 Zverev at Wimbledon

Alexander Zverev Roger Federer Wimbledon

Zverev was once again taken to five sets for the fifth time in a month but he fell short against the world No 138.

In the women's draw, seven-times victor Serena Williams overcame her first big test in confident fashion by beating France's Kristina Mladenovic 7-5 7-6 (2).

Venus, seeded ninth, was beaten 6-2 6-7 (5) 8-6 by Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens on Court One. I was very low energy.

"For me, we played in darkness for one and a half hours".

Seventh seed Karolina Pliskova came back from a set down to beat Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu 3-6 7-6 (3) 6-1 in the third round. Today I definitely did.

The German hit an early exit in Halle and his Wimbledon run did not last for long either as the qualifier Ernests Gulbis halted him in the third round 7-6 4-6 5-7 6-3 6-2 in three hours and 20 minutes!

"After the second set I actually went to throw up during the toilet break, then I felt a little bit better. Thought I'd go out there and try".

He was beaten in the fourth round past year. Things happen. I thought after I won the third set, I'm going to get out with a win.

"I didn't think I could win after the first win but he got exhausted in the end".

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

Frenchman Gael Monfils reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in 10 appearances, beating last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2.

Zverev came back in the next two sets but when it looked like Gulbis would not last the pace, he broke to go 4-2 up in the fourth and took the wind out of his opponent's sails.

'I think that he's a future Grand Slam victor.

He had won only one tour-level match this season before Wimbledon.

Meanwhile, South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson progressed with a 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 win over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber.

In the third Wimbledon quarterfinal of her career, Cibulkova will face 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, who also overcame a disagreement with an official on her way to reaching the last eight. "Obviously she's so aggressive, so if I would keep letting her play, I would lose anyway", she said of her approach that saw her finish with 29 winners against 22 unforced errors.
