WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — The Latest from Wimbledon (all times local):
Frances Tiafoe reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time with a 3-6, 7-6 (1), 7-6 (3), 6-4 victory over Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan.
The 23rd-seeded American is making his fifth appearance at the All England Club.
Bublik hit 25 aces but also had 13 double-faults, including on match point.
Tiafoe will next face either Ugo Humbert and David Goffin for a shot at the quarterfinals.
The 24-year-old Tiafoe’s best performance at a Grand Slam tournament was reaching the quarterfinals at the 2019 Australian Open.
Jelena Ostapenko advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon after winning 12 of the last 13 games against Irina-Camelia Begu.
The 2017 French Open champion from Latvia beat Begu 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 on No. 3 Court.
The 12th-seeded Ostapenko trailed 6-3, 1-0 when she turned things around. She won nine straight games to take a 3-0 lead in the deciding set before Begu was able to hold serve again.
Ostapenko then had to save a break point in the next game before taking a 4-1 lead.
Ostapenko reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2018 and last week reached the final at the grass-court warmup tournament in Eastbourne, England.
Novak Djokovic will be back on Centre Court on Day 5 at Wimbledon, heading out onto the grass to face Miomir Kecmanovic after third-seeded Ons Jabeur tries to make her way back into the fourth round at the All England Club.
Djokovic is a six-time Wimbledon champion who is going for his fourth title in a row at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.
Jabeur reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year. She will face Diane Parry in the opening match in the main stadium. The last scheduled match on Centre Court will be between ninth-seeded Cam Norrie and Steve Johnson.
Former champion Angelique Kerber and up-and-coming Carlos Alcaraz will be on No. 1 Court.
