In their first Wimbledon mixed doubles match, Venus Williams and Nick Kyrgios were a crowd pleaser.
There were many rallies, stunning winners, on-court banter, and one expletive-laden tirade by Kyrgios towards the chair umpire at No. 2 Court.
Final score: 6-3, 3-3, 7-5
After Kyrgios and the glamour duo had fallen to an early break in the final set, Kyrgios shouted at the umpire. He was apparently upset about a late call by a line judge. They quickly regrouped and saved two break points at 5-5, the second being when Williams, 41, hit a lob past Krajicek.
Santamaria’s lunging forehand was enough to secure the win.
Williams, a five-time Wimbledon singles champion, lost in the second round. Kyrgios is now in the third round.
Sebastian Korda is making his Wimbledon debut.
Rising American player, who was playing on Centre Court for only the second time, won the fourth round beating Daniel Evans, Britain, 6-3.
Korda, 20 years old, is the fifth man to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon in the last decade. His opponent Monday is No. Karen Khachanov, 25, is his opponent.
Korda is the son and brother of Jessica Korda and 1998 Australian Open champion Petr Korda. Last week, Nelly won her first major title and became the first American woman in seven years to achieve No. 1. in the women’s global rankings.
Novak Djokovic increased to 17-0 in Grand Slam matches after beating Denis Kudla, an American qualifier, in the third round of Wimbledon.
Djokovic is currently the top-ranked player and has won 17 consecutive matches at Wimbledon where he is also the two-time defending champion.
He double-faulted his first two service points, but then he took advantage of some shaky Kudla forehands in the tiebreaker to win.
After committing six errors in the second round, Djokovic committed 28 unforced mistakes. Monday’s opponent will be No. Cristian Garin, 17th seed from Chile, defeated Pedro Martinez 6-4.
Ons Jabeur was just one point away of her greatest win at Wimbledon. She knelt at the back Court and vomited.
She then got up and completed the task.
Jabeur won a set to defeat Garbine Muguruza, former Wimbledon champion, 5-7,6-3,6-2. This was Jabeur’s first appearance in the fourth round of grass-court Grand Slam.
The Tunisian, who threw up just before her first match point was over, converted her second with a forehand win and fell on her back on grass. Jabeur made it to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open last year, but she said that this was her best day.
Jabeur was not able to make it past the second round of the All England Club’s third appearance and was now playing on Centre Court. Muguruza won Wimbledon 2017 and the French Open 2016.
Muguruza saved 24 breakpoints, but she still lost her serve five more times to the Jabeur, who won 44.
Frances Tiafoe believes he was so intent on revenge for losing to Karen Khachanov in the third round at Wimbledon 2018 that he ended up with the exact same result against the opponent at the same stage.
Tiafoe said: “I played a bit tight. It was a great opportunity. It was too much for me to lose.”
Three years ago, Tiafoe won the first two sets against Khachanov and then the Russian came back to win in five. The match ended in a tie between Maryland’s 23-year-old Tiafoe and Khachanov, who lost 6-3.
“I was playing tentatively. Tiafoe stated that he wasn’t aggressive. Tiafoe said, “I was letting him dictate the play.”
He was in great form and won all 29 of his service games this week. This included a win over No. He was 3rd seed Stefanos Tsitsipas and was just coming off a run at the French Open final.
However, Tiafoe was broken three times by Khachanov, the 25th-seeded.
Tiafoe stated, “Not my best day”, “by any means.”
No. Aryna Sabalenka, 2nd seed, defeated Maria Camila Osorio Serrano, 6-0, and 6-3 to reach Wimbledon’s fourth round. This was her best performance at a Grand Slam.
Sabalenka is currently the only female among top 20 seeds to not reach a major quarterfinal.
Osorio serrano was unable to match her dominance and she won with a 22-9 advantage in the winners’ bracket. Only three of the eleven highest-ranked women remain in the draw.
Please, new bowls!
