Garbine Muguruza has shocked world No.1 Angelique Kerber at the All England Club

If Angelique Kerber hopes to become the first German to win the Wimbledon title since Steffi Graf in 1996, she will have to draw up an emergency game plan as she can not afford to keep flirting with danger as she did against American outsider Shelby Rogers.

World number one Angelique Kerber needed three sets to get the better of Shelby Rogers, while Agnieszka Radwanska and Caroline Wozniacki also had to come from behind in their matches.

"I told myself to try to be aggressive", said Querrey, who reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals past year. I'm happy the way I'm playing out there.

"It was for sure a really important win for me, especially because it was a really up-and-down match".

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

After winning the Australian and U.S. Opens previous year, Kerber has endured a miserable time in 2017, culminating in an embarrassing French Open first round loss to Ekaterina Makarova last month.

Seven-time champion Roger Federer reached the Wimbledon third round for the 15th time on Thursday with a 7-6 (7/0), 6-3, 6-2 win over Dusan Lajovic of Serbia.

She next faces Rybarikova, who eased into the last 16 of a Major for the first time with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Lesia Tsurenko.

Fed weighing when to start selling off trillions in bonds

Radwanksa, runner-up in 2012, will face Russian eighth-seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in the fourth round on Monday.

"She was hitting the balls very hard". Radwanska came to the All England Club after battling a foot injury for most of the season.

Djokovic will next play Latvian Ernests Gulbis, who beat Argentina's Juan Martín del Potro 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (7-3). Canadian sixth seed Milos Raonic, last year's beaten finalist, downed Spain's 25th seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas 7-6 (7/3), 6-4, 7-5 to book a fouth round spot against either Alexander Zverev or qualifier Sebastian Ofner.

But Kerber had awoken and put a huge amount of pressure on the Rogers serve once again, breaking for the third time in the match to serve at 4-3.

American Sam Querrey, seeded No. 24, took only four minutes on court Saturday to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga France 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-5. It was Djokovic's first full match at the tournament after his first-round opponent retired hurt with the Serb leading 6-3, 2-0. Tsonga served first upon resumption of the match, but Querrey immediately broke to seal the victory.

Querrey will meet South African Kevin Anderson in the fourth round.

Dimitrov, a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2014, will next face either Federer or Zverev.
