Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

Kerber (No. 11) is the highest remaining seed, followed by the No. 12 Ostapenko, No. 13 Goerges, No. 14 Kasatkina, No. 20 Bertens and No. 25 Williams. "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great", Williams said afterwards.

"The expectations he's had to deal with for over a decade, 15 years, I mean, at the top of the game, he's able to deal with it so well, which isn't easy". So it's really cool.

"Venus said she would coach her, she just didn't want to travel".

Del Potro completed an epic 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (7-5) 5-7 7-6 (7-5) win over Frenchman Gilles Simon after fading light interrupted their last-16 clash on Monday night with the fifth seed up two sets to one. "She (Ostapenko) won a Grand Slam, as well".

Kerber is bidding to win the Wimbledon title for the first time after losing the 2016 final to Serena Williams.

And she wasn't the only one to mastermind a comeback from a set down, either, as semi-final opponent Goerges also took the more hard route to ousting Bertens.

With only a couple of seeds still in contention could we be in store for an unprecedented maiden unseeded champion in the women's singles? He next faces Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the USA 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

What can you do?" "I've been lucky, I guess we've taken the theory that bogeys aren't a bad score". "It's not often there's value in my game".

Other visits include DogPatch Labs to meet youth learning coding through free workshops. The royal couple made their first official visit to Northern Ireland in March .

In a tournament that has been defined by all of the top seeds falling early and shrinking in tough moments, Williams showed exactly why she is always among the game's best, even if her ranking doesn't reflect it.

In other play, Dominika Cibulkova overcame a delay caused by a controversial decision from the umpire to advance to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Hsieh Su-wei.

Japan's Kei Nishikori beat Ernests Gulbis in four sets to set up a match-up with Novak Djokovic, who has quietly been playing well at the tournament.

Federer will play South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the quarter-final at the All England Club on Wednesday.

She probably should have done her homework on Williams, who crushed the upset-minded Italian after dropping the first set. As for his level I think he looked decent but not in spectacular form, Vesely was a real disappointment though, his forehand was powder puff stuff, loopy and it just sat up waiting for Rafa to take charge. "It was [a] really bad decision from the supervisor and from the umpire". As you have already guessed, it's Wimbledon time.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Serena hasn't won a Grand Slam since the birth of daughter Olympia in September and her last trophy came at the 2017 Australian Open.
