Venus, seeded ninth, was beaten 6-2 6-7 (5) 8-6 by Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens on Court One.

"Honestly, I think for the first time in a long time it was. like, I had no idea what my draw was and all of a sudden I came in here the other day, it was like, so if you win, then you play this person (Serena)", she told reporters. "There was no going back for me". "This match showed I can't take anything for granted".
"Yesterday was tough for several reasons, I had a stomach virus, went to bathroom at the end of the second set and threw up, and last night I didn't eat anything", Zverev admitted.
John Isner launched 21 aces in a comfortable 6-3 6-3 6-4 win over Moldova's Radu Albot. He said: "I'm proud of qualifying here, of winning three five set matches, and this match in particular because I was two sets down".
'I think that he's a future Grand Slam victor.
Zverev came back in the next two sets but when it looked like Gulbis would not last the pace, he broke to go 4-2 up in the fourth and took the wind out of his opponent's sails.
"I think the last two sets here showed my progress".
Frenchman Gael Monfils reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in 10 appearances, beating last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2.
'I was exhausted from probably having a stomach bug, not eating for over 24 hours, ' he said.
There was another upset for the top seeds at Wimbledon yesterday as world number 132, Ernests Gulbis, beat world No 3 Alexander Zverev in five sets. Today I definitely did. But I always say the same: "Roger and Rafa Nadal are the favourites, although there are many players who can be important in the last matches too". "I hope I can win a few more matches here and the German crowd can watch some tennis".
