No. 1 Kerber ousted, Venus advances to Wimbledon quarters

No. 1 Kerber ousted, Venus advances to Wimbledon quarters

Venus will next play against French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, who has made it to her second and consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinal this year.

But she has been getting closer, reaching the semi-finals here 12 months ago and then losing to sister Serena in the final of the Australian Open in January.

If she should win the title, she could return to the top five, a full six and a half years since she was last there-and before contracting the Sjögren's Syndrome that nearly ended her career entirely.

The No 13 seed had been a set and a break down in the Paris final and the break back seemed to be a sign.

French Open victor Ostapenko struggled in her warm-up tournament in Eastbourne, but has progressed to the quarter-finals at SW19 without losing a set in her last two matches.

Venus, after her win over Ana Konjuh, said that Wimbledon needs to consider scheduling more women matches on Centre Court or Court No. 1.

Williams will next face either second-seeded Simona Halep or Johanna Konta on Thursday. Venus Williams played 100th match at Wimbledon and reached her 10th semifinal.

And that's really no surprise given their incredible pedigree - Hingis having won 17 doubles grand slam titles and Murray three. The five-time Wimbledon champion took only 29 minutes to win the opening set 6-3. With a win, Halep would have ascended to No. 1 in the world. "Today was by far the best I hit the ball, the cleanest I hit the ball".

Some House Democrats mull over how to oust Pelosi as leader
Unlike what they apparently believed before this race, Georgia voters are not stupid, and they can't be bought. She has been a great leader, but like every leader, time immemorial, it's time for people to know when to go.

In another quarterfinal completed Tuesday, Spain's Garbine Muguruza beat Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-3, 6-4, to reach her third Grand Slam semifinal. The venue of the match is at Centre Court, London, Great Britain.

The fivefold champion of Wimbledon, Venus Williams, has triumphed, while the favourite, Angelique Kerber has bent the spine.

Still, things were not looking good for Nadal when he served while down 5-4 and double-faulted to trail 15-40.

Williams was just too canny for the fresh-faced Ostapenko, manoeuvering her out of position time and again before delivering the kill shot.

In their first meeting, Williams set the tone against Ostapenko by breaking the Latvian in her first service game.

"Obviously I think ideally you would have two men's and two women's on Centre", Murray said. I don't like when I play and nobody's watching the match.

Djokovic will face 2010 Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych, a man he has beaten 25 times in 27 matches, on Wednesday in the quarterfinals. And to open things up even further, Jelena Ostapenko, the shock French Open victor, powered her way past fourth seed Elena Svitolina 6-3, 7-6 (6). Williams has all the experience, but Ostapenko is on an incredible run of form and her game tends to suit the grass courts.
