A day after saving a match point, Sloane Stephens quickly completed her match at Wimbledon and advanced to third round. She beat Mandy Minella of Luxembourg 3-6, 7-6 (6), 8-6.

The 18th-seeded American saved a match point in the second-set tiebreaker on Friday, but the match was then suspended by rain with the score tied at 3-3 in the third set.

Also, 11th-seeded Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland beat Monica Niculescu of Romania 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 in another second-round match that was suspended by rain. Bacsinszky had been trailing 1-0 in the third set, but won all six games played on Saturday.

High noon comes for Novak Djokovic when he resumes his third-round match at Wimbledon two sets down against Sam Querrey of the United States on Saturday.

Querrey leads 7-6 (6), 6-1 after their match was one of eight suspended overnight because of rain.

He threatens to end Djokovic's bid for a true Grand Slam. Djokovic has won the past four major titles, but no man has won them all in the same year since Rod Laver in 1969.

Also in action Saturday is 2013 Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, who will try to join Roger Federer in the fourth round.

There are also three Wimbledon women's runners-up on the schedule: Agnieszka Radwanska, Sabine Lisicki, and Eugenie Bouchard.
