Wimbledon 2018: Keys admits to being distracted by Serena clash

Meanwhile, Rafa Nadal also won, with a 6-4 6-3 6-4 win over Mikhail Kukushkin.

Cilic blew a two-set lead in his 3-6, 1-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/3), 7-5 loss to Argentina's Guido Pella, ranked at 82.

The seven-time champion came from a break down in the first set to get past Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2).

But the Croatian collapsed once the match resumed on Court One on Thursday and Pella took full advantage to set up a third round clash with Mackenzie McDonald.

But his defeat is good news for defending champion Roger Federer, who was on course to face Cilic in the semi-finals. Navratilova said she would love to see the two players face each other in a final, like ten years ago when the Spaniard won his first Wimbledon title after an nearly five-hour match.

"We don't speak a lot but I think he's kind of a guy who he likes to be for himself and for his own team".
