Shelby Rogers advances to 3rd round at Wimbledon

Sam Querrey of the United States celebrates after beating Jo—Wilfried Tsonga of France in the Men's Singles Match on day six at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Saturday

Kerber lost to Serena Williams, absent while she prepares for the birth of her first child, a year ago in the final at Wimbledon but was looking to avoid a repeat her 2015 performance by exiting in the third round this time around.

Rogers' confident start belied her world ranking of 70, the American hitting twice as many winners as the top seed in the opening set.

However, the 29-year-old showed her pedigree to hold and win the next two games, bringing the set back on serve.

"I think after the second set I just found my game and I was trying to be more aggressive".

US, Russia reportedly prepared to announce ceasefire in southwest Syria
The United States is willing to work with Russian Federation to implement measures to stabilize Syria , including no-fly zones. Moscow also suggested other CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) should consider sending peacekeeping missions to Syria .

"I think I have to play from the first point good tennis against her", Kerber said Saturday. She will now face Garbine Muguruza in a meeting of the tournament's last two losing finalists.

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

The third-round match was suspended Friday by darkness after 2 hours, 54 minutes with Querrey leading 6-5 in the fifth set. "I'm very pleased with the way I've felt, the way I've played".

Querrey and Tsonga's match was called off at 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7/5), 1-6, 6-5, with the French 12th seed not wanting to serve as the light faded, though Querrey was happy to receive. Bulgarian 13th seed Dimitrov had an easy ride into the last 16 when Israeli Sela was forced to pull out at 6-1, 6-1 down after struggling with a right thigh injury that required treatment during the match.

Middle East crisis: Gulf media predict more sanctions on Qatar
The Egyptian foreign minister went on to say that media outlets in Qatar were guilty of "glorifying terrorist activities". Egypt is part of a quartet of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia boycotting Qatar over alleged ties to terrorism.

"I'm feeling pretty good", said Muguruza, who was beaten in the 2015 final by Serena Williams.

The German top seed Kerber, who was runner-up to Serena Williams past year, prevailed 4-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4.

That next opponent is the No. 1 player in the world - even if Kerber has been struggling at the major tournaments this season after winning the Australian Open and U.S. Open past year.

Meanwhile, CoCo Vandeweghe won the All-American matchup with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Alison Riske. "The last time I played her here, I lost the match, so".
