Wimbledon 2018 -- Women's third-round matches

Wimbledon analyst John McEnroe

Two more members of the women's top 10 have fallen, with Madison Keys - seeded 10th - being upset by Evgeniya Rodina and No. 9-seeded Venus Williams falling to No. 20 Kiki Bertens.

Venus Williams has become the latest former champion to be knocked out at Wimbledon.

Rodina won nine games in a row to move a set and two breaks ahead before Keys recovered from 4-0 down in the second set to set up a decider. "She played really well".

Later Thursday, fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who made the semi-finals in 2013, tackles 36-year-old Feliciano Lopez, a three-time quarter-finalist, who is playing in a record 66th consecutive major.

Serena, who is seeded 25th, had 13 aces en route to her 89th career match at Wimbledon, which ties her older sister for third at the All England Club in the Open Era. "So it will be great to play against her".

No. 8 Kevin Anderson beat No. 25 Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 after losing just eight of 61 points on his first serve, while Gael Monfils of France advanced to the fourth round for the first time by knocking out last year's semifinalist Sam Querrey 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

England fans went crazy over the penalty shootout win against Colombia
It bounced down and over the head of the England defender, giving Colombia an improbable lead and justifiably deflating England . Southgate admitted the gruelling nature of the match had taken its toll on his players, with Colombia shown six yellow cards.

Keys lost in three sets behind a faltering serve, and gave up seven break points to Rodina.

In the first point of the breaker, Buzarnescu ended a rally by plopping a forehand into the net, and after Pliskova followed up by holding her two service points for 3-0, the set was slipping away from the Romanian.

Having made 18 unforced errors in each of the first two sets, Giorgi tightened up her game to make just eight in the third and advance to the last 16 at Wimbledon for the first time since 2012. "I am a little surprised that I won, I was a little bit lucky today".

The Swiss defeated the Croat in the 2017 final at the All England Club, while he was pushed to five sets in the final of the Australian Open earlier this year.

Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation also reached the fourth round, following up her victory over second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over former semifinalist Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic.

Zverev beat Taylor Fritz of the USA 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2 in a match that was suspended on Thursday after the third set.
