Ash Barty doing just fine with another win at Wimbledon

Ash Barty doing just fine with another win at Wimbledon

Roger Federer will be up against a player who wasn't even 1 year old when the eight-time champion made his debut at Wimbledon in 1999.

Australian Kyrgios spent much of the match audibly questioning Nadal's speed of play as the world number two prevailed 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3).

Rafael Nadal vs Nick Kyrgios: Why do Wimbledon stars not get on?

Kyrgios twice served underarm on game point, was handed a code violation for unsportsmanlike behaviour and waged a bitter war of words with umpire Damien Dumusois.

Swiss maestro Federer, who is chasing a 21st major crown, unleashed 46 winners past the battling world number 169.

Tomic lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 on Tuesday. I'm not going to apologise to him at all. I know if I play the right type of tennis, I can have success against him.

"The tank is full". "I was able to implement what I wanted to right away and put the pressure straight back on her".

When Kyrgios did concentrate on his tennis, he was full of invention and variety - introducing an Ali shuffle after his big winners and upsetting a rival he already had history with by launching a return straight at him at the net, earning a glare in return.

Lauren Davis takes on defending champion Angelique Kerber on Court Two, while Amanda Anisimova plays Poland's Magda Linette on Court 12 and Taylor Townsend faces number four seed Kiki Bertens. The Belgian reached the last 16 at Wimbledon a year ago, upsetting defending champion Garbine Muguruza on the way, and she has a powerful swinging serve. "I was a bit nervous and I slid and hurt my foot in the first set".

Nadal also endured a slow start, losing the first 11 points against Japanese qualifier Yuichi Sugita before cruising to a 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 win. "We try things, and that helps us to improve our game", she said. "It just wasn't tough by what everyone expected and spoke about in regards to seedings", Barty said. The secret to her run of form?

In the leadup to this meeting, Kyrgios joked that he didn't think "me and Rafa could go down to the Dog & Fox and have a beer together", referring to a nearby pub where the 24-year-old Australian was spotted Wednesday night. However, she said that the reaction from their sponsors had been "more positive than negative". Kvitova beat Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 6-2, Stephens defeated Wang Yafan 6-0, 6-2, and Wang ousted Tamara Zidansek 6-1, 6-2.
