LONDON (Reuters) - A selection of the some of the best quotes and facts from the third day at Wimbledon on Wednesday:
“You can kind of fake it till you make it. But I’m not faking it, at least right now.” - Cori Gauff after the 15-year-old followed up her win over Venus Williams with a 6-3 6-3 win over Magdalena Rybarikova to reach the third round
“I have answered this question, like, 150 times. It’s the same as it was yesterday, and, I don’t know. Close, 6’11”, 7’0”. Not sure.” - American Reilly Opelka on his height
“I mean, good luck to everybody else.” - Victoria Azarenka the Andy Murray-Serena Williams mixed doubles pairing
“I don’t feel like practicing with her ... you want to go and play normal tennis and not this tennis in practice.” - Karolina Pliskova on her unorthodox third round opponent Hsieh Su-Wei
37-year-old Feliciano Lopez fired 18 aces, won 48 net points and smashed 62 winners - all better numbers than his opponent Karen Khachanov - but still lost in four sets.
