Daniil Medevedev – thanks to Wimbledon’s incessant summer showers – needed an extra day to get his first week done and dusted, but the world No 5 took care of business on Day 6, despite the interruptions.

Medvedev completed his win over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff, 6-1 6-3 4-6 7-6(3), to set a fourth-round clash with Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov.

In a match that was halted at 1-1 in the fourth set on Friday, Medvedev snagged the fourth-set tiebreak to improve to 6-1 lifetime over Struff, and 16-5 lifetime at Wimbledon. The 28-year-old reaches the second week for the third time as he seeks to match the career-best semi-final result.

Medvedev cracked 47 winners against 17 unforced errors and won 35 of the 90 points in which Struff charged the net. In total, the contest lasted two hours and 17 minutes.

The Russian will be back at it again tomorrow – he owns a 7-3 head-to-head record against Dimitrov but lost their only meeting on grass in 2017 at Queen’s Club.
