Today at Wimbledon: Everything you need to know about day five

Andy Murray

Konta has won six of her last seven matches on grass court. In her previous match she almost lost to Donna Vekic before prevailing 10-8 in the third set.

Kyle Edmund has an opportunity to make it five if he can overcome Gael Monfils on Thursday and Konta feels it is "exciting times".

FOR the time being, Andy Murray is sharing the spotlight with fellow British players and it's a novel situation for him. "It wasn't easy. It was a little bit windy out there, so I think it made it hard for both of us to play necessarily our best level". I think I'll always in my heart be a tennis player.

"There is a pressure and there is also the support", Garcia said.

He said, after the match: "Every time I give my best till the end". I know my body; it's not great. "After Indian Wells I don't anticipate anything different, other than a really, really tough battle for me".

And Konta said afterwards: "I'm very happy with that, it was gusty out there and not easy". "Especially if you walk out on the Centre Court, there is a responsibility".

On a roasting Court Two, the Briton was in the hottest of form in the first set, bashing big forehand winners past her Latvian opponent to clinch it in less than 20 minutes.

Kvitova was one of a half-dozen seeded women to lose on Day 3, a group that also included No. 15 Elina Vesnina (beaten by new mom Victoria Azarenka, a former No. 1 and two-time Australian Open champion), No. 17 Madison Keys, No. 18 Anastasija Sevastova, No. 22 Barbora Strycova and No. 25 Carla Suarez Navarro. The Swiss lost in four sets to Russian Daniil Medvedev, the world No 49, who was making his Wimbledon debut.

She now has two days to rest and prepare for her meeting with Caroline Garcia on Manic Monday, the busiest day of the tournament when all the fourth-round matches, men's and women's, are played. Mrs Barson's husband, 78-year-old Jerome, sustained injuries from which he never recovered.

The tennis community continued to rally around Bethanie Mattek-Sands on Friday, following her fall the previous day that resulted in a terrible knee injury. I'm enjoying it, which is the most important part. Life, you can't prepare for everything. I know Heather and Jo won. "There are really no words to describe, like, how devastating and".

"I'm just hoping I can add a little to that". But no one minds: these
little quirks have allowed her to focus on her tennis rather than the consequences and in turn, that has propelled her up the rankings and into the fourth round in SW19.

British number one Johanna Konta says she is ignoring being labelled as the favourite to win the Wimbledon title.

Konta got her nose in front and her opponent, world-ranked 101, did not get another look in.

Watson started well, taking the first set but the Belarusian, who was playing only her fifth match since returning after giving birth to her son Leo, triumphed 3-6 6-1 6-4 on Centre Court.
