10 July 2018

It's also the only Grand Slam tournament in the half-century professional era with zero top-10 seeds in the women's final eight.

Federer, who has won 32 consecutive sets at the tournament and held serve 81 games in a row, was asked whether he paused for even a moment to wonder why he wasn't being given more of a test. And Williams was followed by Rafael Nadal - two titles at Wimbledon, 17 at all Slams - who dispatched 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

"It never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision", Cibulkova said.

"This is tough because I can not see myself from the side".

The 21-year-old Ostapenko, the youngest player remaining in the women's draw, next faces 33rd-ranked Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia.

Next up for the 23-time Grand Slam victor is Italy's Camila Giorgi, who is making her debut in the quarter-finals of a major.

Next up for Kerber is Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, who took out Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 6-2. "I'm just going for the shots". The only fourth-round match that wasn't completed on Monday - fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro against Frenchman Gilles Simon - will also be played to a finish.

"I'm just not afraid to miss".
