The seven-time champion came from a break down in the first set to get past Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2).

She faces another mother in the fourth round Monday: 120th-ranked qualifier Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation, who upset No. 10 seed Madison Keys of the U.S.

Raonic, if he remains fit, is probably the most likely to meet the 20-time Grand Slam champion at that stage - a match the 2016 runner-up won at the same stage two years ago.

Serena gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia in September, while Rodina became a mother to Anna in November 2012.

The 36-year-old American now can not meet a top 32 player until the semi-finals after the scattering of the seeds this week.

"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 lost nine games on the trot from 5-2 up in the first set to 0-4 down in the second.

"Honestly, I think today was a massive mishandle of nerves", Keys said.




Roger Federer cruised into the fourth round at Wimbledon with an effortless straight-sets victory against Jan-Lennard Struff.

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

Zverev had trailed two sets to one when his tie with Fritz was halted due to darkness on Thursday.

Djokovic hit 15 aces and 31 winners in a commanding win over 33-year-old Zeballos, who was a top 40 player in 2013 but was playing at Wimbledon ranked a lowly 126. Ekaterina Makarova came out on top of Lucie Safarova 4-6, 6-4, 6-1; while Camila Girogi survived Katerina Siniakova to advance to the Round of 16.

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams could not pull off a third consecutive comeback, instead joining the parade of top-10 seeds on the way out of the Grand Slam tournament.

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.

Zverev beat Taylor Fritz of the US 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2 in a match that was suspended on Thursday after the third set.

South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson and Frenchman Gael Monfils also reached the final 16 on Friday.
