Wimbledon -- Women's third-round matches

German fourth seed Alexander Zverev made the third round, seeing off Taylor Fritz of the United States 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0/7), 6-1, 6-2 and faces Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis for a spot in the last 16.

The 20-year-old is ranked 68th and has never been to the third round at a grand slam tournament.

Bertens faces Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova or Romanian world number 28 Mihaela Buzarnescu for a place in the quarter-finals.

The 11-time French Open champion is looking for his third title at the All England Club and first since 2010.

Serena will play world number 120 Rodina if she advances to the fourth round.

Cilic was runner-up to Roger Federer a year ago and showed great form by beating Novak Djokovic in the Queen's Club final last month.

Williams has dropped the opening set in both her matches so far and needed to save match points to beat Bertens in Miami this year. "So it will be great to play against her".

In addition, this was Roger's 335th Grand Slam win and the 94th at Wimbledon, moving closer to that magical number that he could potentially reach in 2019.

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.

In a match full of big swings, Keys led 5-2 in the first set before Rodina won the next nine games to go 4-0 up in the second.

Isner faced two match points against Bemelmans at 5-4 in the fifth set but held and then broke in the next game.

"I felt much more confident in my game, I served better and I felt so pumped", said Pella, who reached the third round of a major for the first time.

Keys admitted she was thinking ahead to facing Serena Williams while battling Rodina when she was leading in the first set.

"I tried to hit the ball hard and fight for every ball and I think in the end that's why I won".

The 36-year-old Swiss extended his winning streak to 29 consecutive sets at the All England Club.

Meanwhile in the doubles, South Africa's Raven Klaasen and his New Zealand partner Michael Venus advanced to the second round when they defeated Australia duo Lleyton Hewitt and Alex Bolt 7-5, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1.
