Federer, Serena aim to advance on Wimbledon's 'Manic Monday'


Big things are expected of 19-year-old De Minaur in the future, but this contest came too soon for him to make an impression.

Pliskova, who is the top seed remaining in the women's tournament, should be seen as Williams' top threat to reach the final since she beat the American once in a major at the 2016 U.S. Open, which was won by Kerber.

Federer after winning his second round match at Wimbledon. "They're trying hard, let's put it that way", he said few days after wearing a Uniqlo shirt since his split with Nike.

The French Open champion looked like she would escape with a match point at 5-3 in the third, but Hsieh rallied to break again and run away with victory. This has five-set potential.

The bottom half of the men's draw is interesting, with Djokovic grouped alongside Juan Martin del Potro and two-time champion Rafael Nadal.

The head to head of the two players doesn't necessarily fill you with confidence that Mannarino can get the win today. Since 2008, Djokovic has only once failed to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. However, fellow Australian Nick Kyrgios, who also advanced into the third round following his straight set win over Dutchman Robin Haase, believes De Minaur may give the No. 2 seed a bit of a scare.

Nadal is in the hunt for his first championship in England since 2010, when he defeated Tomas Berdych to win the title. Despite losing her way a little - the Latvian's title defense ended in the first round at Roland Garros - Ostapenko, 21, has a big-hitting game that stifles opponents. She reached the quarterfinals here a year ago before bowing out to Venus Williams and has won five out of her past six matches on grass.

Serena Williams is in a groove and has yet to drop a set.

The top seeds in the men's draw may have fared better than the women in the first week of Wimbledon. She was the unlucky player to miss out on a seeding when Serena Williams was handed No 25, but the world No 32 has channelled that frustration in supreme style, brushing aside home favourite Johanna Konta and 15th seed Elise Mertens - both in straight sets.

'Rafael and Roger are two very committed players in the sport, ' said Uncle Toni, who stopped being Nadal's full-time coach past year.

She faces another mother in the fourth round Monday (Tuesday NZT): 120th-ranked qualifier Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation, who upset No. 10 seed Madison Keys of the U.S.
