Wimbledon - (1) Ashleigh Barty vs Alison Riske

Roger Federer Wimbledon trophy

"Yikes!" - Serena Williams after reaching her 14th Wimbledon quarter-finals. Williams defeated Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2 on Monday.

Barty's Wimbledon dream ended at the hands of American Alison Riske in the fourth round of the tournament.

"Finally I can play tennis". "I had to take it to Ash". On how it felt to play on No. 2 Court despite she is a world No. 1 and defending French Open champions, Barty added: "I think obviously scheduling is very hard". Also, No 8 Elina Svitolina faces Karolina Muchova in the fourth quarter-final.

Barty had a convenient win in the first where she was fairly dominant.

An upset looked remote when Barty fired down four aces to start the match before taking the opening set in 32 minutes. Riske lost a total of eight games in eight WPIAL and PIAA singles tournament matches played at Hempfield High School and the Hershey Racquet Club, respectively. Give me an hour or so, we'll be all good. I was sticking to how I wanted to play.

Williams, seeded 11th, had little match practice coming into Wimbledon because of injury and teamed up with Andy Murray in the mixed doubles to get some more playing time.

"I didn't win a tennis match".

"Overall I didn't play a poor match, but when big moments were there, Alison played better today". They were doubles partners in the 2015 Fed Cup when the USA faced Italy.

"I think everyone is also getting better".

"I haven't been starting out fantastic in all my matches", Riske said. Riske has also spent nearly more a lot more time on court than her opponents, with over 12 hours play over the last eight days including the women's and mixed doubles.

"I just feel like from the first time that I stepped foot on a grass court in Birmingham in 2009 or so, 2010, I don't even know, I just felt at home".

"It definitely is good, I know that I can play and now that I'm feeling better physically, I nearly feel a relief more than anything". The Australian player took it with philosophy.

Barty said she didn't execute like she needed to and revealed her biggest problem - the flaw that cost her the most - was her serve. "Like, OK, finally I can play tennis".

Zhang's change of mind over retiring was down to advice from her doubles partner and close friend Australian Sam Stosur.

Williams' last loss came against American opposition, to Sofia Kenin in the third round at Roland Garros.

At 37, he is the oldest man to reach the last eight at the majors since 39-year-old Jimmy Connors at the 1991 U.S. Open. "And yeah, she's great on the grass".

Barty now holds the world No.1 ranking after a stellar 2019.

The Aussie told the world's media that she's always "loved" Disney but they finally "caught on".

Australia's Ashleigh Barty had won 15 matches in a row. New ground for me here at Wimbledon.

There will be three other women's quarterfinal matches.

When asked by a reporter if she would have done anything differently, Barty responded that she had no regrets.

The Belgian beat Spain's Fernando Verdasco 7-6 (11/9), 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Mertens led 5-2 in the second set but lost nine straight games to go 4-0 down in the second.

Tuesday, she'll likely be on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

Federer, who hit 24 winners and just five unforced errors, will face Japan's Kei Nishikori for a place in the semifinals.
