Compatriot Joe Salisbury is also through to round three with his partner Frederik Nielsen after their opponents Rohan Bopanna and Edouard Roger-Vasselin retired two sets and 3-2 down in the third. She couldn't do the same this time.

Gael Monfils advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time Friday after knocking out last year's semifinalist Sam Querrey 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

"It was very tough because he played very well", said 11-time French Open champion Nadal, who is chasing an 18th major. "So many top players have lost - and technically I'm not a top player".

Cilic was runner-up to Roger Federer a year ago and showed great form by beating Novak Djokovic in the Queen's Club final last month.

Guido Pella of Argentina took out last year's beaten finalist Marin Cilic of Croatia in the second round at Wimbledon.

Venus Williams has become the latest former champion to be knocked out at Wimbledon. Her exit means eight of the top 10 seeded women have gone out before the end of Week 1.

Anderson has now made to this stage at The All England Club four times in his career.

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

Keys, who was the US Open runner-up previous year, crashed out 7-5 5-7 6-4 to the Russian on a baking hot Court Three. But Keys won the next five games and broke again to level the set score.

The 18-time Grand Slam singles victor Martina Navratilova praised Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in a column for the London Evening Standard.

Unseeded American Taylor Fritz also unexpectedly took a 2-1 lead over world No. 4 and tournament fourth seed Alexander Zverev before their second round match suspended by darkness.

But Rodina, 29, held her nerve to reach the last 16 at a grand slam for the first time.
