Sun is out at Wimbledon; Federer and Kerber on the schedule

The German - runner-up to Serena Williams at the All England Club past year - needs to reach the final again to retain her place at the top of the rankings but was given a real scare by her American opponent.

STATISTIC OF THE DAY: Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer's straight sets victory over Mischa Zverev was his 317th grand slam singles match win, an all-time record, surpassing Serena Williams (316).

Fifth seed Caroline Wozniacki rallied too from the brink of defeat - Annet Kontaveit served for the match in the second set - to prevail 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2.

And the Spaniard is excited to face her German counterpart.

"I definitely will take some confidence from this win today" Rogers said. I love this kind of match. Sam Querrey took one game to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a match suspended Friday due to bad light, while Grigor Dimitrov made it through after opponent Dudi Sela pulled out-the 11th retirement at the championships.

"I'm feeling pretty good", she said. Rogers was forced to save six break points in the very first game which she did admirably, but could not succeed a seventh time.

Tour de France crash: Most spectacular pile-ups in famous race
Bardet, two-time victor Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) and Dan Martin (Quick-Step Floors) could try to blow the stage open . Do you know all about the links between technology and sport? "I have plenty of fond memories of riding the Tour".

Querrey and Tsonga's match was called off at 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7/5), 1-6, 6-5, with the French 12th seed not wanting to serve as the light faded, though Querrey was happy to receive.

The 29-year-old arrived in London with just one quarter-final showing in her past five events but, with the pregnant Williams out of the picture, Kerber now senses an opportunity to add a Wimbledon trophy to her 2016 Australian Open crown.

"I told myself to try to be aggressive", said Querrey, who reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals previous year.

But last year's Australian and US Open victor broke again to lead 4-3 and then held twice to book her place in the last 16. I think I was serving as well better in the third set. "I expected a lot of tricky shots from her and a lot of entertaining rallies", said the Polish ninth seed.

Vandeweghe, considered by some as a dark horse for the title, beat compatriot Alison Riske 6-2, 6-4.

Magdalena Rybarikova continued her fine run on grass this year with a comfortable 6-2 6-1 victory over Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko, while Petra Martic defeated Zarina Diyas 7-6 (8-6) 6-1.
