Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal Advance; Alexander Zverev Stunned at 2018 Wimbledon

Alexander Zverev revealed a stomach bug left him on the verge of quitting before the world number three battled back to beat American youngster Taylor Fritz 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0/7), 6-1, 6-2 at Wimbledon on Friday.

Gulbis, a former World No. 10 who famously defeated Roger Federer on his way to the French Open semifinals in 2014, will be playing in the last 16 at Wimbledon for the first time at the 11th attempt.

The 21-year-old fourth seed won the final two sets to move into the third round, where he will face Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis.

The same was true for Roger Federer, who saw off Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff in straight sets to reach the second week of the tournament for the 16th time in his career.

"Today I was returning much better, as I said, because it was brighter". "It's the most special court for me, hundreds of thousands must have come to see me play here".

Juan Martín del Potro outpowered Benoît Paire 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-3.

Zverev, who won a five setter against American Taylor Fritz from 2-1 down in the previous round, failed to improve on his best at Wimbledon a year ago when he also went out in the third round.

German Julia Goerges, who had lost in the opening round in her previous five Wimbledon appearances, edged past Czech Barbora Strycova 7-6 (3) 3-6 10-8 in just under three hours on Court Two. "There was no going back for me".

Despite a string of wins on the ATP tour, including in Madrid and Munich this year, his form at the French Open and having reached the fourth round of Wimbledon last year, this latest defeat would seem to be a major setback. 'I showed in Paris and other matches that I don't really get exhausted in five-set matches.

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 was exhausted from probably having a stomach bug, not eating for over 24 hours, ' he said. That's it. I played my match. "I'm very calm. I try to find ways to win".

Meanwhile, South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson progressed with a 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 win over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber.

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.
