Wimbledon 2018 -- Women's third-round matches

Wimbledon order of play star Rafael Nadal

Guido Pella of Argentina came from two sets down to stun third-seeded Marin Cilic at Wimbledon on Thursday (Friday NZ Time), beating last year's finalist 3-6 1-6 6-4 7-6 (3) 7-5 in the second round. She sat out Wimbledon past year while pregnant.

Madison Keys became the latest top-10 seed to bow out of Wimbledon after a dramatic defeat by world number 120 Evgeniya Rodina.

Five-time champion Venus Williams, 38, and making her 21st Wimbledon appearance, faces fellow big server Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

The 36-year-old Swiss proceeded to win his 29th consecutive set at the All England Club and wrap up victory on Centre Court in just over one and a half hours.

The 11-time French Open champion is looking for his third title at the All England Club and first since 2010.

Williams has dropped the opening set in both her matches so far and needed to save match points to beat Bertens in Miami this year. "She played really well". "So it will be great to play against her".

John Isner, the U.S. ninth seed, saved two match points, fired 64 aces and 88 winners to defeat Belgian qualifier Ruben Bemelmans 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 6-7 (3/7), 7-5.

Keys lost in three sets behind a faltering serve, and gave up seven break points to Rodina. She then broke back to level the third set at 4-4, but Rodina immediately earned another break and served out the victory.

"I tried to hit the ball hard and fight for every ball and I think in the end that's why I won".

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.

On the men's side, Kevin Anderson defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber in a tough three sets 6-3, 7-5, 7-5.

Wawrinka, whose ranking has fallen to 224th following knee surgery, came from a set down to upset sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in the first round for just his second Grand Slam victory since last year's Wimbledon.
