Gulbis outlasts Zverev, Djokovic takes out Edmund

Gulbis outlasts Zverev, Djokovic takes out Edmund

He'd never attempted that before and is now the first male qualifier to get to the fourth round in six years. "After the second set, I actually went to throw up during the toilet break", he said. "It makes me stronger mentally".

Having been upset at missing out on a seeding at the start of the tournament, the Slovakian was angered when a crucial ruling went against her during the first set of a 6-4, 6-1 fourth-round victory over Hsieh Su-Wei on Monday. "I don't think I did a good job of keeping in the moment and playing the person who was in front of me".

Zverev has plenty of practice at scrambling out of trouble after three times winning from two sets to one down at the recent French Open.

The 36-year-old American has progressed to the second week without dropping a set but her sister Venus became the eighth of the top 10 seeds to be knocked out of the championships.

Despite being widely-tipped to be a Grand Slam threat, it was another let-down for Zverev whose run to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last month remains his best performance at the Majors.

But then came one injury after another and a slide to 589th a year ago because of a lack of matches. Gulbis had won only one Tour match in 2018 before Wimbledon and has been working his way back up the rankings on the Challenger Tour. "He's obviously had good wins through these last three matches here".

"It felt like somebody just unplugged me in the middle of the fourth set", said Zverev, who had not eaten for over 24 hours.

It is a disappointing end to a challenging week for 21-year-old Zverev, who said... "There was no going back". He came down with a stomach bug that affected him during his two-day, five-set victory over Taylor Fritz of the U.S.in the second round and felt exhausted down the stretch against Gulbis.

Latvia's top-ranked lady tennis player Alona Ostapenko defeated Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens 6-1, 6-3 in the second-round of the Wimbledon Grand Slam tennis tournament. The worlds No. 3 tennis player Alexander Zverev is a passionate fan, he himself said in an interview.

Alexander Zverev recovered from a losing position to creep past Taylor Fritz on Friday at Wimbledon, after their match was suspended a day earlier.
