Wimbledon: Barty, Serena progress to round four

Sunday, 07 Jul, 2019

She will face Harriet Dart, an unseeded British wild-card entry playing at Wimbledon for only the second time.

"I'm just learning from all these experiences I'm having this year".

"I don't see a reason why younger women players should run into physical issues or not win tournaments young", said Federer.

The win put her into the last 16 at Wimbledon for the first time in a period of a her career when milestones are being achieved on an nearly daily basis. I'm still finding my feet. "Every match, I'm hoping to improve tons".

"I did my best to get a quick start".

Goerges played at a high level all through the match, albeit landing fewer first serves than she would have wanted.

"It's really only the last 20 years that that's been going on", he said, explaining that not all players could travel to all four majors in the past.

Come the business end, Konta began to find more pace and penetration from the baseline and worked her first break points. Now my mind, it's more focusing on the arm than maybe on the tennis.

The 22-year-old Dart, who is ranked 181 places below top seed Barty, wilted with a netted backhand to concede a 2-0 deficit in the second set.

Federer played a loose service game to suffer a break, recovering immediately and clinching the second set with another break in game eight for a massive advantage after only an hour and 15 minutes.

It was a singles debut on Centre Court for both women but the gulf was all too clear as Barty wrapped up a 6-1 6-1 victory in just 53 minutes to reach the fourth round for the first time with a 15th consecutive win.

The 37-year-old laid down a marker in her bid for an eighth title with a straight-sets win over the risky Julia Goerges.

Knee problems that have plagued her season have yet to resurface in London, which bodes well for the challenges ahead. I think it's one of her great strengths. He showed the crowd he would not go down without a fight, and also held serve throughout, saving a match point 5-6 down when Federer sent a forehand down the line wide.

"She'll get more support being in Britain, as I would if we were in Australia". I'm looking forward to playing a great champion.

No. 8 seed Kei Nishikori of Japan ousted American Steve Johnson in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, and next faces Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin, who defeated No. 33 seed Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany, 6-3, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-5.

Eight-time Wimbledon champion, Roger Federer conceded his 350th win at Grand Slams, with a 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (4) win over the 27th seed, Lukas Pouille in the third round of the Wimbledon Championships 2019.
