The Friday schedule included a ton of matches from the third round and some postponed second rounds.
Mariana Duque-Mariño took Centre Court under the roof to take on Wimbledon's darling, Laura Robson.
It wouldn't end well, though, as the Colombian No.1 would end up falling to the British No.1, 64 61.
Robson is the only teenager in the Top 50 and one of 11 in the Top 100. Next-highest is Madison Keys.
Elsewhere, Kaia Kanepi rallied from a set down to send No.7 seed Angelique Kerber home, 36 76(6) 63.
Flavia Pennetta was also crafting a comeback to remember, rallying from a 6-0 first set blowout.
Alizé Cornet was unfortunately on the other end of that comeback, falling to Pennetta, 06 76(4) 62.
After beating Ana Ivanovic in the second round, Eugenie Bouchard fell to Carla Suárez Navarro.
Former World No.1 and 1997 Wimbledon champion Martina Hingis was mingling in the stands Saturday.
Marion Bartoli kept her run going on the decimated bottom half, defeating Camila Giorgi, 64 75.
Petra Kvitova was in trouble, losing the second set and falling behind 2-1 in the third...
But her battle with Ekaterina Makarova would have to wait another day as the rain started to fall.
