Katie Boulter

Just like in the opening two matches, Roger was the dominant figure on the court, never facing a break point and keeping the pressure on Jan-Lennard with 14 break points he created, converting four to stay in front from start to finish. "I feel ready to compete". I still really can't believe it.

"It's true, I favoured him in that section together with maybe (Milos) Raonic".

Monfils made it through to the fourth round for the first time after beating Sam Querrey.

Last year's beaten finalist was well in control before rain halted proceedings on Wednesday evening.

Monfils will tackle Anderson in the next round, and he enjoys a 5-0 winning record over the South African.

Nick Kyrgios, seeded 15, unleashed 42 winners to see off Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-4, 7-5.

The British brothers comfortably booked a place in the third round with a 6-4 6-4 7-6 (7-2) win. Williams is 6-0 in sets so far this open, although three of those sets have gone to extra games.

The Serb next faces home hope Kyle Edmund, a 6-4 7-6 (7-0) 6-2 victor over American Bradley Klahn.

The final scoreline read 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 6-4 in Anderson's favour.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic welcomes LeBron James to Los Angeles
The Cavs played 81 postseason games - one contest shy of an entire regular season - the last four years, winning 55 of them. The 33-year-old James is coming off a season in which he averaged 27.5 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers .

That would be Serena Williams, the 23-time Grand Slam-titleholder, who fought off unseeded Kristina Mladenovic of France 7-5, 7-6 (2). I played well today. Simona Halep (No. 1) and Karolina Pliskova (No. 7) are still alive, however.

Venus Williams followed Keys out of the championships, losing to Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens in three sets.

Defending champion Garbine Muguruza, Caroline Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina, Caroline Garcia and Petra Kvitova have also fallen by the wayside during the first week.

Keys, who was the US Open runner-up past year, crashed out 7-5 5-7 6-4 to the Russian on a baking hot Court Three. "So it will be great to play against her".
