Wimbledon 2018: Third seed Cilic beaten by Pella in second round

  • Wimbledon order of play star Rafael Nadal

That match was also suspended on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) with Wawrinka leading 6-5 in the third set, but Fabbiano wrapped up the victory quickly to equal his best Grand Slam result by reaching the third round.

A rain delay saw the match delayed overnight with Cilic two sets to the good but he failed to find his rhythm as the Argentine won 3-6 1-6 6-4 6-4 7-5 to reach the third round of a major for the first time.

"I have played the qualies and three matches this week which were all three sets", said 29-year-old Rodina, one of six mothers in the draw at the start of the tournament. "So the rain helped me a lot".

Guido Pella of Argentina took out last year's beaten finalist Marin Cilic of Croatia in the second round at Wimbledon. To be honest, I was chilling on the terrace, looking above my shoulder, how Stan [Wawrinka] was going on, 4-3 in the first set, so I was pretty relaxed. Yet hopes that Kyrgios would face another Australian next were dashed after Bernard Tomic lost 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7), 7-5 to Kei Nishikori, the 24th seed.

Former champions Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic battled into the Wimbledon third round on Thursday but third seed and 2017 runner-up Marin Cilic crashed out.

Mladenovic won back-to-back matches at a major tournament for the first time since previous year at Wimbledon, when she was in the midst of a career-best stretch that ultimately saw her crack the Top 10 for the first time last fall.

Sacha Baron Cohen Trolls Donald Trump, Seemingly Teases New Project
Some suggested that he might do the same to Cohen, long considered Trump's "fixer", but there is an apparent rift between the two. In fact, Cohen later explained, Trump actually didn't catch on to the joke for seven whole minutes.

Djokovic, the three-time champion, needed treatment on his left thigh on Court 2 but still had too many weapons for Argentina's Horacio Zeballos, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-3.

Nadal took 10 minutes to hold his opening service game but, when he broke quickly in the next game and held to love for a 3-0 lead, it seemed Kukushkin had already shot his bolt.

Nadal won only 64 per cent of points on his first serve and faced 13 break points - including three in the first game of the match - but he saved 11 of them and converted five of his own to wrap up the win in under 2 1/2 hours on Centre Court.

Thursday's incidents are not the first time that Nadal and Bernardes have clashed.

John Isner, the USA ninth seed, saved two match points, fired 64 aces and 88 winners to defeat Belgian qualifier Ruben Bemelmans 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 6-7 (3/7), 7-5. Isner had 113 aces in that match and Mahut hit 103.
