All Top 10 Women’s Seeds Eliminated At Wimbledon

Serena Williams is excited to face an opponent whose game she's familiar with in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

'I'm just only in the quarter-finals.

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.

Rodina knocked out Madison Keys in the third round to progress to this stage, but Williams needed just 62 minutes to end her unlikely run and will next face Camila Giorgi as she looks to win her first slam since returning to the WTA Tour following the birth of her first child. I know it's more hard now, there are many more demands on your time etc and it was such a big title for her because she'd been in three finals before and for Romania blah blah blah... but really? The No. 9 seed beat Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas in three sets Monday in London.

And she ensured there would not be another shock in Monday's contest on Centre Court, her seemingly unstoppable march to the final continuing with a 6-2, 6-2 triumph. Bertens will play 13th seed Julia Goerges for a place in the semi-finals after the German beat Croatia's Donna Vekic. After the review confirmed the ball landed on the line, umpire Juan Zhang of China awarded the point to Cibulkova.


Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (7-4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich. "It was [a] really bad decision from the supervisor and from the umpire".

The 26-year-old lost her fourth-round match 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to the Dutch player after a largely uninspiring display.

After seven minutes, the decision was finally changed and the point replayed.

Ostapenko also reached the quarterfinals previous year in her best Wimbledon showing, losing to eventual runner-up Venus Williams. 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.

Both Anderson of South Africa and the 44th-ranked Monfils of France were bidding to reach the quarterfinals for the first time on their 10th appearance at the All England Club.
