'Are you a masochist?' Alexander Zverev stunned by reporter's questions at Wimbledon

Germany’s Alexander Zverev

German star Zverev lost the first set in a tie break but rallied to lead 2-1 after winning the second and third set 6-4 and 7-5 respectively.

It was a "long time coming", said the Latvian underdog, who took nearly three and a half hours to beat the young German star, 7-6 4-6 5-7 6-3 6-0. In addition, Ernests has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in his 11th appearance, becoming one of the players who needed to play more than 10 Wimbledons to book the place in the last 16 after Tommy Robredo, Jeremy Bates, Michael Llodra, Nicolas Mahut, Richey Reneberg and Marc Rosset.

Like Zverev, the 20-year-old Fritz is a former junior world No. 1 earmarked for great things but yet to truly arrive at the highest level.

Two points from the first set at 4-5, 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova was awarded a set point, before having it taken away from her after a seven-minute delay involving discussions between both players, the chair umpire, and the match referee.

Ernests Gulbis of Latvia uses a towel filled with ice during the men's singles match against Alexander Zverev of Germany on the sixth day at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Saturday July 7, 2018. Of course, today I found a way better than he did. Today I definitely did. I played well on clay, so it's coming together slowly.

But he got his return game going at the start of the second set and won around 43 percent of the British player's service points the rest of the way.

Three-time victor Novak Djokovic made the last 16 of a Slam for the 44th time with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Kyle Edmund, the last remaining Briton. "Thought I'd go out there and try".

Despite being widely-tipped to be a Grand Slam threat, it was another let-down for Zverev whose run to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros last month remains his best performance at the Majors. "Obviously she's so aggressive, so if I would keep letting her play, I would lose anyway", she said of her approach that saw her finish with 29 winners against 22 unforced errors.

Meanwhile, South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson progressed with a 6-3, 7-5, 7-5 win over Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber.
