Roger Federer vs Jan-Lennard Struff, Wimbledon 2018

Russia´s Maria Sharapova practices at The All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon southwest London

"Yesterday he was playing so, so good, and hitting the ball so hard that I couldn't do anything", Pella said.

Within seconds he added with a smile: "I'm happy whatever they say, as long as it is "game" and my name and not "game" and the other (person's) name".

Despite that freakish argument, Nadal insists he does not have a personal issue with the veteran umpire.

"If I believe that somebody's not doing the things fair with me or was not respectful for me, I just can ask if is possible to have another umpire". You can not force me to change my shorts in front of everybody.

"For me personally that was disrespectful", he said.

"But when I made a mistake, I put my shorts on the wrong way round".

"I do my best to be quick".

Third seed Marin Cilic let a two-set lead slip as he was knocked out in the second round of Wimbledon by Argentina's Guido Pella.

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.

The Spaniard has now entered the third round at Wimbledon for the eighth time in his career, but for only the third time since he finished runner-up in 2011.

In the third Grand Slam of the season, Nadal defeated Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4, 6-3, 6-4, and is now just one victory away from making sure he'll leave London with the world number one ranking, regardless of Roger Federer's result.

Zverev beat Taylor Fritz of the US 6-4, 5-7, 6-7 (0), 6-1, 6-2 in a match that was suspended on Thursday after the third set.

Stan Wawrinka also exited, losing to Italian qualifier Thomas Fabbiano 7-6 (7) 6-3 7-6 (6).

The 36-year-old is bidding for a ninth title at the All England Club and maintained his fine progress through the opening week with a 6-3 7-5 6-2 win despite the best efforts of his German opponent.
