Ashleigh Barty, Sloane Stephens and Petra Kvitova advance — WTA Wimbledon

A smiling rival selfie

Three breaks of serve in set number two propelled Barty through and it will take some beating to prevent her from winning another Grand Slam title.

Djokovic goes on to face Hubert Hurkacz for a place in the last 16 having defeated the Pole in straight sets in the first round at Roland Garros in May.

Elsewhere, 2014 victor Petra Kvitova plays France's Kristina Mladenovic on Court One and Britain's Johanna Konta, the number 19 seed, plays Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic.

The second round starts at 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. ET) for both the men's and women's tournaments.

The long blonde hair looked eerily familiar, but it wasn't quite a case of like father like son for Leo Borg at Wimbledon.

As a 10-year-old, Lloyd Harris sat on Centre Court at Wimbledon to watch his idol Roger Federer. The teenager also wore Fila clothing but had ditched his father's trademark headband in favor of a regular white hat.

Davis, who had strapping on her leg and shoulder, had been ranked outside the top 250 earlier this year but has risen back into the top 100.

How close was this one? Johnson won fewer total points (150-149), earned fewer service breaks (3-2) and made almost twice as many unforced errors (45-25). But no, at the moment I don't think I can contend for a grand slam.

Kristina broke in the first game of the match, fending off three break points in game eight to move 5-3 up, with three set points up for grabs at 5-4.

England eye India, NZ games as quarter-finals: Root
If they win both their remaining matches, Bangladesh will end with 11 points and then hope that England do not win more than one. They had an excellent start to their World Cup campaign beating three tough sides in South Africa, Australia and Pakistan .

It has been 30 years since Michael Chang made the underarm serve famous at the French Open, but this year, Kyrgios has been making it his own.

Speaking after the match a year ago, Van Uytvanck said: "I don't think that I feel more free now, we just decided that it was something we didn't want to keep to ourselves".

The 9th seed Sloane Stephens was too strong for Yafan Wang, earning a 6-0, 6-2 triumph in 54 minutes, firing 19 winners and ten unforced errors to leave the rival far behind. I'm not sure our schedules will align easily for us to be able to have a catch-up.

The news wasn't so good for 25th seed Alex de Minaur who crashed out with a 3-6 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 3-6 6-3 loss to American Steve Johnson on Thursday night (AEST).

His fine is the same amount of prize money singles players get for losing in the first round.

Rafael Nadal emerged victorious in his Wimbledon grudge match against volatile Australian Nick Kyrgios.

It was one of an impressive 29 aces for the 24-year-old Canberra native throughout the game.

Alison Van Uytvanck said Thursday the more players that come out as gay, the better it would be for tennis, as she and her girlfriend continue their doubles partnership at Wimbledon. However, action on Centre Court and Court One doesn't begin until 1 p.m. local time (8 a.m. ET).
