Wimbledon 2017 live results – Roger Federer breezes past Grigor Dimitrov as Rafael Nadal loses a five set thriller against Gilles Muller

TOP SEED Angelique Kerber just scraped through to the fourth round of Wimbledon – but only after being pushed to the limit by Shelby Rogers.

World number one Kerber is many people’s pick to lift the Ladies’ singles title this year in the absence of Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.

But last year’s beaten finalist had to dig deep to see off an inspired challenge from unseeded American Rogers in a thrilling match.

The world number 70 took the first set and was a break up in the second as Kerber looked completely out of sorts on Court Two.

But just when it looked as though the womens draw would be blown wide open, the German summoned the depths of her spirit to claw her way back.

She took the second set on a tie-break as Rogers looked to have run out of steam, only for the American to rediscover her game midway through the third.
