Wimbledon 2017: Angelique Kerber fights back to beat Shelby Rogers

Wimbledon

Angelique Kerber produced a fighting win to reach the second week of Wimbledon and set up an intriguing fourth-round clash with Garbine Muguruza.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic returns against Latvia's Ernests Gulbis during their men's singles third round match on the sixth day of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, yesterday.

A dead net-chord on the very first point of the tie-break gave her an early advantage but the backhand that had served her so well in the two sets went to pieces and at changeover, she trailed 1-5. He picked up his 236th win at a major.

"I'm really not looking out of the schedule", Kerber said. In the second set, I was starting to feeling the ball better and better. The German has now made the fourth round at the All England Club four times, three of which have come in the last four years.

"It was for sure a really important win for me, especially because it was a really up-and-down match".

Toronto Raptors re-sign Serge Ibaka to three-year, $65 million deal
The 31-year-old point guard fell off a cliff this past postseason, but he remains an elite fantasy option when healthy. Ibaka is a single father and said his daughter's preference would have a lot to do with his decision.

Milos Raonic, last year's runner-up at Wimbledon, advanced to the tournament's second week by beating 25th-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 7-6 (3), 6-4, 7-5 with the help of 21 aces, including one to end it.

CoCo Vandeweghe, the No. 24 seed, is back into the Round of 16 for the third year on a row after defeating fellow American Alison Riske 6-2, 6-4 in one hour, 15 minutes. Tsonga served first upon resumption of the match, but Querrey immediately broke to seal the victory. However, Leander Paes and Yifan Xu, and Zhaoxuan Yang and Divij Sharan lost their first-round matches late on Friday. "I think that helped". "I felt today I improved a little bit my game compared to the previous matches".

Querrey will meet South African Kevin Anderson in the fourth round. "He did three, four good shots, and yeah, that's it", said Tsonga.

"I think once you get there, the nerves aren't so anxious, in a way of, you know, can I do this, can I not, because you have already proven it to yourself". "It's going to come down to a couple points here or there".

Dimitrov, a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2014, will next face either Federer or Zverev.
