The Kazakhstani was made to pay for converting just two of 13 break points in the match.

"The rain coming helped me a lot", the 28-year-old, who had not won a match at Wimbledon in his two previous visits before this year, told BBC Sport.

"It's more hard for me to understand what's going on".

It was a comfortable victory for Britain's Murray and his Brazilian partner - winning their match 7-5 6-2 6-1 in an hour and a half.

"On grass, the ball bounces really low so it was a good test". "Probably I should go to toilet".

For Djokovic, meanwhile, victory was his 60th at Wimbledon - making him just the fifth man to claim 60 wins at the All England Club in the Open Era.

Isner's ace total was the third-highest ever at Wimbledon - behind his own record in a three-day epic against Nicolas Mahut in 2010, the longest tennis match in history.




Novak Djokovic eased past Argentina's Horacio Zeballos 6-1 6-2 6-3 to book a showdown with British favourite Kyle Edmund, then insisted a leg muscle twinge was "nothing major".

"It's going pretty well", she said courtside in staggering understatement after beating the accomplished French player Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2) in front of a Centre Court audience who had come to soak up the sun and the American's glowing brilliance on Friday afternoon.

Venus couldn't make it a third consecutive comeback triumph as she lost to 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6 in the third round on Friday.

He will face Australian teenager Alex De Minaur in the next round.

Monfils is another fourth round debutant after he knocked out last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2.

Rodina made the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time.
