Angelique Kerber survives Shelby Rogers scare to advance at Wimbledon

Garbine Muguruza plays a shot

Runner-up to Serena Williams a year ago, Kerber hopes her 4-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 escape - after trailing by a set and a break against the 70th-ranked Rogers- not only proves a turning point in her campaign, but her entire season. But she has struggled for form this year, and crashed out in the opening round at Roland Garros.

Fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki rallied too from the brink of defeat - Annet Kontaveit served for the match in the second set - to prevail 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2. "I thought I raised the level of tennis", said Djokovic after making the second week without dropping a set.

Garbine Muguruza - Kerber's next opponent - had no such trouble as she saw off Sorana Cirstea in straight sets.

"I'm feeling pretty good", she said.

American Sam Querrey, seeded No. 24, took only four minutes on court Saturday to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga France 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-5. "I am a little disappointed as I didn't keep my level up throughout the whole match but if you had said I would make the third round of the main draw I would have been happy", Hercog told AFP. I think that's a different kind of pressure that is self brought upon. "Every time I start the grass season, I'm like, 'How the hell did I reach that final?'", the 2016 French Open victor said.

Magdalena Rybarikova continued her fine run on grass this year with a comfortable 6-2 6-1 victory over Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko, while Petra Martic defeated Zarina Diyas 7-6 (8-6) 6-1.

Dudi Sela of Israel became the ninth men's player to retire from a match at this year's tournament, stopping his third-round match because of a right adductor strain against 13th-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria while trailing 6-1, 6-1.
