All Top 10 Women’s Seeds Eliminated At Wimbledon

Pliskova latest star to fall at Wimbledon - Nine Wide World of Sports

Serena Williams is prepping for her return to Wimbledon and she will have an extra special fan in attendance to cheer her on.

She added: "A lot of the players I've played this tournament, I don't think I've played them before".

Bertens, who was contemplating retirement a year ago after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, is the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007. "Now that I'm not, it kind of happened". As she keeps reminding folks, this is just her fourth tournament since missing more than a year of action because she was pregnant and gave birth to a daughter last September.

"You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great", Williams said afterwards. I mean, I have a long way to go.

That might sound a tad scary to opponents.

"It's speed and placement", Rodina said about what makes Williams' serve so effective.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko was aggressive throughout, hitting 28 winners - 13 coming off her backhand. In a matchup of the only two mothers remaining in the draw, she jumped into a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes.

Noted tennis fan Trump, who is to visit London, Windsor and Scotland, is not believed to be scheduled to attend any matches at Wimbledon at present.

Serena Williams is attempting to win her 24th Grand Slam singles title. She faces 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, just two weeks after beating the Russian in a third-set tiebreaker on the grass courts of Eastbourne, tying their head-to-head record at 3-3.

On the bottom half of the bracket, it'll be 12-time major champion Djokovic against 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori, and No. 2 seed Nadal against either 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

Bertens next faces 13th-seeded Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-3, 6-2 to secure her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance. 'Like I said, it's hard to say.

Giorgi, Kasatkina, Bertens and Goerges will each be making her debut in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time.

Predictably, Pliskova was asked why there have been so many surprises. "In this tournament, she seems to be in the right mood".

"I don't want to talk about this anymore". I feel like it takes time to get there.
