Madison Keys became the seventh woman seeded in the top 10 to crash out of Wimbledon as the American was stunned by Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina on Friday.

She is the fourth former women's champion to get knocked out, joining Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova and last year's victor Garbine Muguruza.

The 38-year-old American - last year's runner-up at Wimbledon - was the oldest entrant in the women's singles field.

Nadal won only 64 per cent of points on his first serve and faced 13 break points - including three in the first game of the match - but he saved 11 of them and converted five of his own to wrap up the win in under 2 1/2 hours on Centre Court.

Rodina, through to the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time, was 0-15 against top-20 ranked opponents before Friday's win.

The match on Monday will also be a tussle between two of the tour's mothers. I thought I did very well today.

Roger Federer cruised into the fourth round at Wimbledon with an effortless straight-sets victory against Jan-Lennard Struff.

But third-seeded Cilic unexpectedly fell.

The seven-time champion came from a break down in the first set to get past Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 7-6 (2). She sat out Wimbledon past year while pregnant.

"Stopping last night was not a nice feeling to go to bed with", said Zverev.

"I knew it was going to be a tough match, so I went onto the court with the determination and intensity, thinking I can't make any mistakes". "I am having a good season - made the quarters at the French Open - it's all coming together".

Cilic last bowed out in the second round in 2013.

Ekaterina Makarova, who knocked out second seed Wozniacki on Wednesday, continued her fine tournament with a 4-6 6-4 6-1 win over Czech Lucie Safarova.

Anderson hit 34 aces to beat Andreas Seppi 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-4 and set up a third-round meeting with Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany.

His early exit opens up Federer's path to the final even more, with No 8 Kevin Anderson the highest-seeded player left in the Swiss star's half of the draw after No 6 Grigor Dimitrov lost in the first round.
