Bertens stuns Pliskova as last top 10 seed falls

Bertens stuns Pliskova as last top 10 seed falls

Here's a hint, Camila: Williams is now just three victories from a 24th Grand Slam title, which would add to her own professional-era record and equal Margaret Court's all-time mark.

Such was the ease with which she dispatched Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 6-2 6-2 in a 62-minute exhibition of power and grace that questions in her post-match news conference quickly turned to other subjects.

Serena Williams will be there, though, after she moved a step closer to an eighth title at the All England Club.

Asked whether she wanted Alexis to one day follow her mother or whether aunt Venus might be her coach, the seven-times Wimbledon champion said: "No, I would hope she doesn't play tennis".

However, the Czech seventh seed only lasted until Monday lunchtime, going down 6-3 7-6 (7/1) in the fourth round to Kiki Bertens from Holland.

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.

Rescuers begin 'challenging' final push to free last five from Thai cave
The boys have been in the cave since June 23 when they were exploring the cave and unexpected rain flooded the tunnels. HE said the eight boys rescued are in "high spirits" and have strong immune systems because they are soccer players.

One of former Wimbledon quarterfinalists Dominika Cibulkova and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko will reach the last four at the All England Club for the first time. 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?

Williams is seeded 25th after returning from having a baby, but is looking like her usual dominant self on the grass courts. She was the lone top-10 women's seed still around at this upset-filled tournament, and now she's also gone.

And, just as predictably, she was in no mood to provide an answer.

But the 36-year-old shared over the weekend that despite a strict schedule to be as present as possible for her daughter, she still managed to miss out on baby Alexis's first steps while getting in some training for Wimbledon.

"I don't want to talk about this anymore. Hopefully I can get there". "I don't know. I actually would not be able to do that".
