Watch video highlights from day five at Wimbledon where Serena Williams advanced but her sister Venus was not as lucky.
Serena and Venus Williams had different fortunes in their respective third rounds at Wimbledon on Friday as the former defeated Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2) to advance to the last-16, but the latter fell to Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6.
It was Bertens’ first-ever top-10 win on a non-clay court and it put the No. 20 seed in the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time in her career.
Roger Federer defeated Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 7-5, 6-2 to post a 175th career victory on grass, an all-time record by any man, moving one ahead of Jimmy Connors.
10th-seeded Madison Keys suffered a shock upset against Evgeniya Rodina 7-5, 5-7, 6-4, but No. 7 seed Karolina Pliskova escaped a similar fate by defeat Mihaela Buzarnescu 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-1.
Gael Monfils reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in his 10 career appearances by defeating last year’s semi-finalist, No. 11 seed Sam Querrey 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.
On his decade-long quest for a Wimbledon second-week showing, Monfils said: “It was for sure long. But I think it took me years and years. Also had to put myself in a good opportunity, to put myself in a good balance with my body and my believe on a grass court. Then, as I say, the last three years were much better. I just couldn’t I think take the opportunity. Today I took it and I’m happy about it.”
