All Top 10 Women’s Seeds Eliminated At Wimbledon

Bertens previously beat the No. 9 seed, Venus Williams, on Friday.

"I don't think the draw is open". "But it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest". I'm just thinking about my next match, which is tomorrow.

It also took her until her 42nd Grand Slam appearance to finally get through to the last four at a major. "I mean, I'm hoping this is, like, a new thing", she said.

That might sound a tad scary to opponents.

"It's not that there is a free (run) until the final", the 26-year-old said.

In the men's tournament, Roger Federer advanced to a record-extending 16th Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over Adrian Mannarino of France.

Williams hit serves up to 118 miles per hour, delivering 10 aces, including four in one game.

Whereas Rodina seemed overawed by facing Williams on Centre Court in the fourth round, such nerves were not apparent in Giorgi, who benefited from a poor line call to go a break up.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko was aggressive throughout, hitting 28 winners - 13 coming off her backhand.

She fought back to beat Italian Camila Giorgi 3-6 6-3 6-4 in a fiercely contested quarter-final on Tuesday.

The 25th seed came from a set down to defeat Camila Giorgi.

Having shaken off any rust that may have remained from her absence, Williams appears to be closing in on top form at the right time.

She is now two wins away from her eighth Wimbledon trophy and from tying Margaret Court for the most Grand Slam titles in history at 24.

Jelena Ostapenko and Dominika Cibulkova will also meet in Tuesday's quarterfinals.

Bertens hit seven aces and saved eight of the 10 break points she faced to win 6-3, 7-6 (2) against Pliskova and complete the latest upset in the women's draw.

"I didn't expect it, honestly", said Goerges, who lost in the first round at the All England Club each of the past five years.

On Wednesday, the 29-year-old will be playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2013, when he went on to lose to Novak Djokovic in an epic semi-final.

Predictably, Pliskova was asked why there have been so many surprises. She didn't provide much perspective after the match, but insisted she was happy with her performance.

"I don't want to talk about this anymore".

"I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".
