Federer outplays Gasquet; Medvedev, Zverev advance

Roger Federer became the oldest man in 46 years to reach the Wimbledon third round on Thursday with a straight sets win over Richard Gasquet.

Th 39-year-old defeated his French rival 7-6 (7/1), 6-1, 6-4 to make the last 32 for the 18th time. Australia’s Ken Rosewall was 40 when he made the third round at the All England Club in 1975.

Federer, the eight-time champion, beat Gasquet for the 19th time in 21 meetings and will take on Cameron Norrie of Britain for a place in the last 16. The Brit swept aside Australian wildcard Alex Bolt 6-3, 6-1, 6-2.

Norrie joins fellow Britons Dan Evans and two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the third round. It is the first time three British men have reached the third round since 1

Earlier, Russian second seed Daniil Medvedev reached the last 32 for the third time with a straight sets win over Spanish wildcard Carlos Alcaraz.

Medvedev, fresh from his first grass court title in Mallorca last weekend, eased to a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 over 18-year-old Alcaraz, the youngest player in the draw. Medvedev will face either 2017 runner-up Marin Cilic or French qualifier Benjamin Bonzi for a place in the last 16.

Alexander Zverev, like Medvedev, has yet to flourish at Wimbledon but the German wasted little time in progressing to the third round dismissing Tennys Sandgren, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 in a match played in good hearted hunmour.

Nick Kyrgios secured an easy passage after three straight days of play, beating Gianluca Mager 7-6(7), 6-4, 6-4, while Gael Monfils was knocked out by debutant Pedro Martinez.
