Wimbledon: Ash Barty doing just fine with another win at Wimbledon

Nadal had suggested that Kyrgios does have the makings of a Grand Slam champion but the Australian doubts he has the work ethic to achieve such a lofty ambition.

During the first half of the match, Kyrgios repeatedly argued with umpire Damien Dumusois, mainly about the time that Nadal was taking between points.

The King of Clay, who's coming off the back of a French Open title, won 6-3, 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 in a highly entertaining contest.

The Aussie's level on grass has only improved in London, where she's through to the third round without dropping a set after recording the 6-1, 6-3 victory against Van Uytvanck.

Japan's Kei Nishikori took down another British hope in Cameron Norrie, administering a clinical 6-4 6-4 6-0 lesson, while Italian seeds Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini also prevailed.

The tears Dan Evans shed after sinking seeded Georgian Nikoloz Basilashvili were ones of joy and relief rather than sorrow.

"I was a little bit shocked, it's never nice to get this when someone is injured like that", said Svitolina, who goes on to face Greece's Maria Sakkari for a place in the last 16. "It was a goal to be in the main draw here". Serena Williams' match against Kaja Juvan is the third and final game of the day on Court One. To be into the third round is great for me.

"That's touchy", said Tsonga.

"But, no, at the moment I don't think I can contend for a grand slam".

"Being honest, I'm too old for all this stuff", hel said. "But I'll probably wake up tomorrow (and) there will be something negative about it, for sure".

But with Barty playing both singles and women's doubles at Wimbledon, she has no idea if she can fit in a get-together with her cricket pals.

Reporter: I was wondering if matches of that kind of high quality where you're playing so well, looking so up for it, inspire you to want to do that all the time, go for slams, whether you believe you can win them, or if you're happy entertaining?

"The rule is like play to the speed of the server".

Out of sudden, Rafa pulled the break back in game seven when Nick netted a forehand but that break at love wasn't enough for the Spaniard to get back to the positive side of the scoreboard, getting broken again a few minutes later and allowing Kyrgios to serve for the set.
