Tsonga outlasts Isner in Wimbledon epic


Jo-Wilfried Tsonga is through to the fourth round of Wimbledon after finally overcoming the challenge of John Isner by 7-6 6-3 6-7 2-6 17-19.

The game was the fifth longest in grand slam history since the adoption of the tie-breaker and follows American Isner’s clash with Nicholas Mahut at the same event in 2010 which became the longest professional tennis match in history.

On that occasion Isner emerged victorious after winning the final set 70-68, the number of games in that set on its own longer than the previous longest match.


Juan Martin Del Potro's dreams of winning Wimbledon on his grand slam return from injury are over after he lost his third round clash with Lucas Pouille.

The Argentinian had not played at one of the sport's four major tournaments since the Australian Open in 2014, undergoing three operations on his left wrist during that period.

Del Potro raised hopes that he could go deep at SW19 when he knocked fourth seed Stan Wawrinka out in the second round but he couldn’t cope with the rising star that is Pouille and he went down 6-7 (4/7) 7-6 (8/6) 6-4 6-1.

The 22-year-old Frenchman has moved up 60 places this year up to 30th in the world rankings and is anticipated to rise again after progressing to the fourth round of a slam for the first time.


Serena Williams’ pursuit of a seventh Wimbledon title remains on track after she cruised past Germany's Annika Beck in the third round.

The American top seed won 6-3 6-0 on Centre Court and will now face Russian 13th seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.
