American Sam Querrey is through to the last 16 of Wimbledon, wrapping up his delayed match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in just five minutes.

The match on Court Two was halted for bad light just after 21:00 BST on Friday and when played resumed on Saturday, the 24th seed immediately broke France’s Tsonga to win 6-2 3-6 7-6 (7-5) 1-6 7-5.

Grigor Dimitrov is also through after Israel’s Dudi Sela retired with injury.

The Bulgarian was leading 6-1 6-1.

Sela lost the first set in 23 minutes before he called for the trainer and then went off court for a medical time-out to treat an upper leg injury.

He returned 10 minutes later, but retired immediately after 13th seed Dimitrov had won the second set.

Querrey, who knocked out Novak Djokovic on his way to the quarter-finals last year, said: “After such a great match it was a bit of an anti-climax in the end, a bit of a bummer.

“I’ve been in that situation before (coming out to serve to stay in a match) and it’s tough.”

Tsonga had faced a similar fate at the French Open, when his first-round tie against Renzo Olivo was stopped for bad light.

They returned the following day, only for Tsonga to lose after one game.
