  • Wimbledon order of play star Rafael Nadal

Cilic looked headed for a routine victory before the match was suspended by rain in the third set on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) but the former US Open champion couldn't find the same rhythm.

"Yesterday he was playing so, so well and I couldn't do anything".

"The rain coming helped me a lot", the 28-year-old, who had not won a match at Wimbledon in his two previous visits before this year, told BBC Sport.

Del Potro showed he is shaping up nicely for tougher matches ahead with a 6-4 6-1 6-2 romp past Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez to reach the third round at Wimbledon on Thursday.

Novak Djokovic set up a potential third-round meeting with Britain's Kyle Edmund at Wimbledon with a clinical 6-1 6-2 6-3 victory over Horacio Zeballos.

Unfortunately, in the important moments the world's number 77 player couldn't grasp the nettle.

The world number 133 is in the third round for the first time after winning back-to-back matches on the main tour for only the second time in 2018.

Rafael Nadal resumes his quest for a third Wimbledon title this lunch time as he takes on Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin in the second round.

The big Argentine, in the same half of the draw as Nadal, was dominant throughout against the 36-year-old at his 66th consecutive grand slam tournament.

Women's top seed and French Open champion Simona Halep, a semi-finalist in 2014 and a quarter-finalist in the last two years, takes on China's 126-ranked Saisai Zheng.

There is history between both Nadal and Bernardes as the 16-time Grand Slam victor requested the umpire was banned from all of his matches in 2015, which was rejected.

Saisai ended a run of three successive first round losses at the All England Club when she beat compatriot Qiang Wang on Tuesday.
