Three-time champion Novak Djokovic also marched on.

Williams is the only past Wimbledon champion remaining in the field.

Second seed Nadal beat Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4 6-3 6-4 in two hours 23 minutes to advance.

They traded breaks mid-set and Mladenovic did well to hold from 15-40 in the 10th game - just seven points from going out of the tournament.

However, Cilic suffered a dramatic exit at the hands of Guido Pella on Thursday afternoon to fall early.

However, the world No 82 from Argentina, who had never reached the third round of a Grand Slam before, came right back into the match, taking the next two sets 6-4 7-6 (3) after play resumed on Thursday.

But, on the resumption, Pella improved and wrapped up the third set and took the fourth on a tie-break.

While the result was bad news for Cilic, Federer must have been watching with a wry smile as he avoided the Queen's champion. It was easier to play facing a deficit, Keys said - "When you're down a set and 4-0, it's a lot easier to be, like, oh, I probably should play better now and do that" - but she admitted that throughout the final set, stepping up to the baseline to serve had been nerve-wracking every time. Today I played differently, tried to be more aggressive, he started to feel uncomfortable.

"On grass, the ball bounces really low so it was a good test".

For Djokovic, meanwhile, victory was his 60th at Wimbledon - making him just the fifth man to claim 60 wins at the All England Club in the Open Era.

Federer, the only semi-finalist from previous year left in either of the singles draws, will face France's Adrian Mannarino on Monday.

The British brothers comfortably booked a place in the third round with a 6-4 6-4 7-6 (7-2) win.

No. 9 seed Williams lost to No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6 in the third round on Friday.

Kyrgios could next face lucky loser Bernard Tomic if his Australian compatriot can shock Japan's Kei Nishikori.

Monfils is another fourth round debutant after he knocked out last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2.

Barty came back from 2-5 down in the second set to see off 2014 runner-up Bouchard who came through qualifying this year.

The 18-time Grand Slam singles victor Martina Navratilova praised Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in a column for the London Evening Standard.
