"Then the referee came to me and said, 'You're next on Centre Court.' It was a very nice surprise, and also obviously lucky when you see how it turned out to be right now with all the suspended matches". I felt it's an opportunity missed.

Mladenovic walked through her second-round match in straight sets and has been serving well through the tournament, but this match ought to be in Serena's hands.

"I mean, it just gives even more props to her, honestly", said Keys, the U.S. Open runner-up previous year and a French Open semifinalist last month.

This will be the first time the pair have met.

The seven-time champion, who was controversially seeded at 25 following her lengthy absence as a new mother, claimed a 6-1, 6-4 win in 66 minutes on Centre Court.

"When you get off to a good start in set one and two, you're able to just enjoy the moment more than when you're struggling early on, especially at the tournament like I explained yesterday". "It's interesting, because I don't even scout as much, because when I watch them play, it's a totally different game than when they play me. I don't think I did a good job of keeping in the moment and playing the person who was in front of me".

El Salvador's Marcelo Arevalo and Chilean Hans Podlipnik-Castillo beat British pair Jay Clarke and Cameron Norrie 6-4 6-7 (5) 5-7 6-4 22-20 after five hours of play stretched over two days in a marathon opening-round men's doubles clash.
