Former Wimbledon finalists Kerber, Muguruza set to meet

The World No 1 defeated her Belgian opponent in two straight sets to advance to the last 32

"I was close to winning, but I didn't play well enough today".

Kerber, who was runner-up to Serena Williams a year ago, has struggled for form in recent months and lived dangerously for more than two hours on Saturday before eventually securing a fourth-round place with a 4-6 7-6 (2) 6-4 victory.

"I'm feeling pretty good", she said.

The deft Radwanska, the 2012 beaten finalist, came back from a set down to beat Swiss 19th seed Timea Bacsinszky 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 on Centre Court. "A lot of times when you play a big server you actually need to focus on your own serve more, because sometimes you can take it for granted that I'm just going to hold and you'll be good".

Angelique Kerber produced a fighting win to reach the second week of Wimbledon and set up an intriguing fourth-round clash with Garbine Muguruza.

After winning the Australian and U.S. Opens past year, Kerber has endured a miserable time in 2017, culminating in an embarrassing French Open first round loss to Ekaterina Makarova last month.

In other third-round matches, 24th seed Coco Vandeweghe struck 23 winners to beat fellow American Alison Riske 6-2 6-4, while Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova continued her fine grasscourt run with a 6-2 6-1 rout of Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko.




At 37, she is the oldest player left in the women's draw.

Radwanska next faces Russian eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, the 2004 USA and 2009 French Open champion, who cruised through with a 6-4, 6-0 win over Slovenian qualifier Polona Hercog. He picked up his 236th win at a major.

Canada's sixth-seeded Milos Raonic, last year's runner-up at Wimbledon, advanced to the second week by beating 25th-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 7-6 (3), 6-4, 7-5.

Rogers had an advantage in most of the key statistics, six aces to one, two double faults to four for Kerber and 48 winners to the German's 25, but lost on the scoreboard. It was Djokovic's first full match at the tournament after his first-round opponent retired hurt with the Serb leading 6-3, 2-0.

Tsonga thrashed a ball high over the Court 2 stands after losing, and Querrey sympathized with the difficulty of serving in a close match after an overnight interruption.

Querrey will next face South Africa's Kevin Anderson, whom he leads 7-5 in head-to-head series.

Bulgarian 13th seed Dimitrov had an easy ride when Israeli Sela was forced to pull out at 6-1, 6-1 down after struggling with a right thigh injury that required treatment during the match. Third seeded Federer will face Germany's Mischa Zverev for a place in the last-16.
