Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer continues flawless start at SW19

The middle Saturday is traditionally athlete day in the Royal Box, so Nadal's latest display of virtuosity was watched by his good friend Sergio Garcia - the Masters-winning golfer - and a host of other legends. But why not? He is able to do it, I am able to do it'. Here's all the results and highlights from today's play.

Despite the dramas, seven-time women's champion Serena Williams is a fan of the tradition.

Three years ago, Canadian star Eugenie Bouchard turned heads by wearing a black bra under her white playing top. I know that Phil Brook, the chairman right now, he believes in strict tradition, going back to the '50s, '60s.

The eight-time champion and No. 1 seed next faces 22nd-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France, who beat Daniil Medvedev 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3.

Anderson earlier became the first man through to the fourth round after beating Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3 7-5 7-5.

Back after missing last year as she prepared for the birth of her first child, the 36-year-old has stepped things up from Paris, where she pulled out before her fourth-round match because of a pectoral injury.

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

"I really take every match one at a time, not necessarily as it will be my last, but I try hard every time", Federer told BBC afterward.

Pliskova avoided the cull by beating Romania's Mihaela Buzarnescu 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 later in the afternoon.

The women's draw has opened up with eight of the top 10 seeds having already been knocked out.

Since tennis turned professional in 1968, this is the worst showing at Wimbledon by the women's seeds. Williams looks to be improving with every game and has a real chance of claiming an eighth singles title at Wimbledon.

He's coming back if he wants to, it's a different time of life - he has a lovely family, two kids, it just depends on how important it is to him and how focused he can remain.' Agassi is already back in the United States, where he lives.

'You can't say never.

Williams is the fourth former women's champion to get knocked out, joining Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova and last year's victor Garbine Muguruza. She was allowed to play as the underwear was shorter than her dress.

No. 9 seed Williams lost to No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6 in the third round. "So it will be great to play against her".

Milos Raonic's match against Dennis Novak was suspended due to fading light in the third set, with Raonic leading 7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-5.

Meanwhile, 13th seed Julia Goerges, Donna Vekic, Ekaterina Makarova, Camila Giorgi all progressed to the fourth round.
