"I'm very, very grateful and thankful about all this".

Play was halted with Novak about to serve while trailing 6-5 in the third set, and Raonic got off to a ideal start when they resumed Saturday by breaking to take that set.

The 21-year-old Swiss will face the victor of German 11th seed Angelique Kerber's match against Japanese 18th seed Naomi Osaka.

Bencic, who staged a strong return to competitive play at Wimbledon after being sidelined for several months due to injury, will next face off against former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber of Germany, now world number 10. "It is magical to play in front of the wonderful fans here".

Explosive Nick Kyrgios, fresh from a social media row with former women's champion Marion Bartoli after she accused him of squandering his talents, plays Japan's Kei Nishikori.

Hsieh in the 4th round will meet Dominika Cibulkova, who dispatched No. 15-seeded Elise Mertens 6-2, 6-2.

Hsieh will play the 2014 Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova on July 9 at 6.30 p.m. Taipei time, with the victor moving through to the quarter finals.

"This is the first time I have beaten the world number one, it is fantastic", the world number 48, who made her Wimbledon debut in 2006, said.

"This year I have tried to enjoy more, not just tennis but life, food, strawberries and cream, lobster", said the 2013 Wimbledon doubles champion.

"Okay, now I feel more relaxed", Hsieh said.

"The Englishman says, "hey, we are playing Croatia tonight" and the Frenchman replies: "So are we - on Sunday". He's been showing season in, season out that he's one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

Hsieh's 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 win over Halep is her first over a No. 1 seed, but it isn't her first takedown of a top-10 favorite.

Defeat for the French Open champion means only one of the top 10 seeds in the women's singles have reached the last 16 - Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova.

Top-seeded Roger Federer and second-seeded Rafael Nadal remain alive on each side of the men's draw, but five of the top 10 seeds there have been eliminated.

Gulbis played superbly to beat the German 7-6, 4-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-0.

"It was a positive match against a player who is young with a lot of energy out there", he said. "I was fighting until the end for every ball".

In that moment, Hsieh thought back to a fourth-round match against Lucie Safarova at Nottingham previous year, which she lost in a third-set tiebreak.

She had a match point when Hsieh served at 4-5 in the third set but was not adventurous enough on a second-serve return and paid the price as her opponent found the corner with a drilled backhand that was too good for the Romanian.

Big-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic, the 2016 finalist, reached the fourth round after beating Austrian Dennis Novak 7-6 (5) 4-6 7-5 6-2.

However, Djokovic eventually got the break he needed after a misfired half-volley from Edmund before clinching the match on serve with an ace after two hours and 54 minutes.
