Nick Kyrgios eased past Robin Haase 6-3 6-4 7-5, to book a third-round clash with Kei Nishikori, who accounted for Bernard Tomic 2-6 6-3 7-6 (9/7) 7-5.

Nadal will be up against the promising Alex de Minaur, who beat Pierre Hugues Herbert 6-2, 6-7 (8), 7-5, 6-3.

Williams is at the other end of her career and showed the mental grit still remains as a mother, fighting from a break down in the first set on Centre Court to win 7-5, 7-6.

"Yesterday he was playing so good, hitting the ball so hard that I couldn't do anything", Pella said. Today I played differently, tried to be more aggressive, he started to feel uncomfortable.

Djokovic has now made the third round for 10 consecutive years and will face either British 21st seed Kyle Edmund or USA qualifier Bradley Klahn.

Argentina's Pella prevailed 3-6 1-6 6-4 7-6 (7/3) 7-5 to reach the third round for the first time, in a match that swung entirely on its overnight rain delay. It was easier to play facing a deficit, Keys said - "When you're down a set and 4-0, it's a lot easier to be, like, oh, I probably should play better now and do that" - but she admitted that throughout the final set, stepping up to the baseline to serve had been nerve-wracking every time. And I think that kept being in the back of my mind.

Trump's trade war with China shifts into high gear Friday
Trump does have leverage, in the sense that all of these countries depend far more on exports than the United States does. On top of that, China pays $24 billion a year for foreign patent and copyright licenses, according to government data.

The world number 11 made numerous unforced errors which allowed Rodina to come back into the match and take the first set.

Three-time major victor Stan Wawrinka was unable to follow up his first round defeat of sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov when he lost 7-6 (9/7), 6-3, 7-6 (8/6) to Italian qualifier Thomas Fabbiano.

"I knew it was going to be a tough match, so I went onto the court with the determination and intensity, thinking I can't make any mistakes".

Madison Keys lost nine consecutive games as she suffered a shock third-round exit at Wimbledon to Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina.

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

Serena Williams, the seven-time Wimbledon victor, is seeded 25th after her tentative return from the birth of her first child.
