ATP Wimbledon: Gulbis serves a bagel to send Alexander Zverev packing

Roger Federer

I started to play smarter.

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

Describing Gulbis as a 29-year-old ranked 138 in the world, could conjure the image of a journeyman scraping by.

"Not a lot of players qualify for Paris and Wimbledon", added Gulbis, who reached his highest ranking of 10 in 2014, by way of explanation for his form in London. 'I showed in Paris and other matches that I don't really get exhausted in five-set matches. "There was no going back for me". "It has been a great match for me", Gulbis said.

Kontaveit won with a score of 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Three-time victor Novak Djokovic made the last 16 of a Slam for the 44th time with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Kyle Edmund, the last remaining Briton. In the previous round, Zverev managed to prevail against Taylor Fritz with a solid display in sets four and five but he couldn't do the same today, suffering another heartbreaking Grand Slam loss in the match where he was the clear favorite.

"I was talking to Nick beforehand and I said there is no way we will finish the match", Nishikori said, "but I played one of the best matches of my life".

Scott Pruitt resigns as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator
In a letter addressed to Donald Trump, Pruitt cited "unrelenting" and "unprecedented" attacks on him and his family. Political observers are expecting Wheeler to be in his new role as acting EPA administrator for an extended period.

Bad light on Wimbledon's Court One caused play to be suspended late on Thursday, with fourth seed Zverev struggling and trailing the world number 68 by two sets to one. I felt my mind go, you know, and move on.

He was beaten in the fourth round a year ago.

The mercurial Frenchman beat last year's semi-finalist 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2 on Centre Court.

Deep down, however, the No 4 seed knew the game was up long before his 7-6 (2), 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0 defeat after the effects of a stomach bug ripped all the energy from his body. Today I definitely did. "I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis". But I always say the same: "Roger and Rafa Nadal are the favourites, although there are many players who can be important in the last matches too".

Despite being widely-tipped to be a Grand Slam threat, it was another let-down for Zverev whose run to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last month remains his best performance at the Majors.

To her credit, Keys fought from 4-0 down in the second set to level the match but the 48 unforced errors she made proved to be the making of her own downfall.
