SATURDAY'S MAJOR RESULTS

Dominic Thiem vs Jared Donaldson

Dominic Thiem has now reached the fourth round in a fourth consecutive Grand Slam tournament, defeating Jared Donaldson of the United States 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 at Wimbledon. The eighth-seeded Thiem won despite trailing by two games in each of the first two sets.

Roger Federer vs Mischa Zverev

Roger Federer took care of one Zverev brother, and the other one could be in his Wimbledon future. The seven-time champion at the All England Club beat Mischa Zverev of Germany 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-4 on Centre Court. He will next face Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round. If both Federer and Alexander Zverev win on Monday, they would meet in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Zverev will next play Milos Raonic, a Canadian who beat Federer in last year's semifinals.

Federer has reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the 15th time. Another title next weekend will give him a record eighth at the All England Club.

Novak Djokovic vs Ernests Gulbis

Novak Djokovic returned to the fourth round at Wimbledon by beating Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (2). The second-seeded Djokovic lost in the third round at the All England Club last year. On Monday, he will be making his 10th appearance in the final 16 of a tournament he has won three times. Djokovic, who won in Eastbourne last week, will next face Adrian Mannarino. He defeated Mannarino in the second round at Wimbledon a year ago.

Caroline Wozniacki vs Anett Kontaveit

Caroline Wozniacki advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon for the sixth time, coming back to beat Anett Kontaveit of Estonia 3-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2. The fifth-seeded Wozniacki has never reached the quarterfinals at the All England Club — the only Grand Slam tournament in which she failed to advance to that stage. Wozniacki will next face 24th-seeded CoCo Vandeweghe of the United States in the next round.

CoCo Vandeweghe vs Alison Riske

CoCo Vandeweghe advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon for the third consecutive year with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Alison Riske. The No. 24-seeded Vandeweghe had 23 winners, compared to Riske's five. The 25-year-old Vandeweghe reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, where she lost to runner-up Venus Williams. She lost in the opening round of the French Open. Riske, who is 27, reached the third round for the third time in her seven appearances in the main draw.

Angelique Kerber vs Shelby Rogers

No. 1-ranked Angelique Kerber came back from a set and a break down to beat American Shelby Rogers 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 in the third round of Wimbledon. Kerber was the runner-up to Serena Williams at the All England Club last year. During that breakthrough season, Kerber won her first two major titles, at the Australian Open and U.S. Open. This is the German left-hander's fourth trip to the fourth round at Wimbledon. It did not come easily. After dropping the opening set, Kerber trailed 3-1 in the second before turning things around. Rogers had never been past the first round in two previous appearances at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.

Milos Raonic vs Albert Ramos-Vinolas

Milos Raonic, last year's runner-up at Wimbledon, advanced to the tournament's second week by beating 25th-seeded Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 7-6 (3), 6-4, 7-5 with the help of 21 aces, including one to end it. The No. 6-seeded Canadian described his performance as "pretty clean." He finished with more than twice as many winners, 55, as unforced errors, 26. Raonic lost to Andy Murray in last year's final at the All England Club. Now Raonic is into the fourth round for the third time in four years.

Bryan brothers bow out

Three-time Wimbledon doubles champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan lost in the second round in straight sets. The fifth-seeded American twins lost to Marcin Matkowski of Poland and Max Mirnyi of Belarus 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. Although they were in the final of the Australian Open in January, they have not won a Grand Slam title since winning the U.S. Open in 2014. They won at the All England Club in 2006, 2011 and 2013 and also reached the finals on four other occasions, most recently in 2014.

Sam Querrey vs Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Sam Querrey took only four minutes on court Saturday to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and reach the fourth round at Wimbledon. The match was suspended Friday by darkness after 2 hours, 54 minutes with Querrey leading 6-5 in the fifth set. Tsonga served first upon resumption of the match but Querrey broke to win 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-5. Querrey reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals last year. Tsonga, a two-time Wimbledon semifinalist, also reached the quarterfinals at the All England Club last year.

Garbine Muguruza vs Sorana Cirstea

Garbine Muguruza reached the fourth round at Wimbledon, two years after making it all the way to the final. The 2015 runner-up at the All England Club and 2016 French Open champion beat Sorana Cirstea 6-2, 6-2 in the third round Saturday. The 14th-seeded Muguruza played cleanly and finished with 18 winners and only 10 unforced errors. She did not drop a set this week. Cirstea, a Romanian ranked 63rd, had made it to the third round when her previous opponent, American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, had to stop playing because she injured her knee during their match.
