Americans left in the draw
The fairytale story of  Cori Gauff continues. Pushed almost to the brink of elimination by  Polona Hercog (SLO), Gauff fought off two match points to win 3-6, 7-6(7), 7-5.
 Danielle Collins could not pull off another comeback; she forced it to a third set, but  Petra Martic (CRO) would not be denied and she won 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.
 Reilly Opelka lost in straight sets after a compelling first set. The young American got discouraged after losing the first set and never recovered;  Milos Raonic (CAN) won 7-6(1), 6-2, 6-1.
How the seeds fared on day 5
 Kevin Anderson (RSA) last year’s finalist, lost a shocker. Anderson could not solve the puzzle of the veteran clay court specialist  Guido Pella (ARG) and lost 4-6, 3-6, 6-7(4).
 Karen Khachanov (RUS) lost in straight sets to  Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) 3-6, 6-7(3), 1-6.
 Daniil Medvedev (RUS) lost 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, 3-6, 5-7 to  David Goffin (BEL).
 Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) continues to have a subpar season. Although she got to a final earlier this season (April), she has had a slew of first round losses since. Today’s match was always going to be a tough battle for the Dane as Zhang has played her close their head-to-head was tied at 1:1. Today it was an easy victory for  Shuai Zhang (CHN), who won 6-4, 6-2. This is the furthest that Zhang has ever gone at Wimbledon (five previous visits and she lost in the first round).
 Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN) succumbed to the pressure of the occasion and the tactics of  Ugo Humbert (FRA). The Canadian teenager lost 4-6, 5-7, 3-6.
 Anett Kontaveit (EST) lost 6-7(7), 3-6 to  Karolina Muchova (CZE).
 Su-Wei Hsieh (TPE) lost to  Karolina Pliskova (CZE) 3-6, 6-2, 4-6.
 Maria Sakkari (GRE) lost to  Elina Svitolina (UKR) 3-6, 7-6(1), 2-6.
