A rain delay saw the match delayed overnight with Cilic two sets to the good but he failed to find his rhythm as the Argentine won 3-6 1-6 6-4 6-4 7-5 to reach the third round of a major for the first time. "So the rain helped me a lot". "I need my time to think about what to do for the next point, that's all".

Had Kukushkin converted a few more of them it could have got really complicated for Nadal, who is still finding his grasscourt game after claiming an 11th French Open title.

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. "It's more hard for me to understand what's going on", said the 32-year-old Nadal after his 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 win.

The Kazakh, with a curious undercut double-handed backhand and some clever angles, broke back to level at 3-3 though before Kukushkin wobbled when serving at 4-5.

Ninth seed John Isner saved two match points and served 64 aces to overcome Belgian Ruben Bemelmans 6-1 6-4 6-7 (6-8) 6-7 (3-7) 7-5 in three hours 46 minutes to reach the third round.

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