Ashleigh Barty makes shock exit at Wimbledon

Ashleigh Barty makes shock exit at Wimbledon

Naturally, Serena Williams - a seven-times champion - is the shortest price at [2.68] to land a 24th Grand Slam title, but Konta has fire in her belly and she has a real affinity with the grass.

In women's singles, world number one Ashleigh Barty's hopes of becoming the first Australian women's champion in almost four decades were dashed on Monday, opening the way for Serena Williams to potentially equal the all-time Grand Slam haul.

Bob and Mike Bryan lost to French duo Nicolas Mahut and Edouard Roger-Vasselin 7-6 (3) 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (5). I believe in the way I competed.

Despite being an early break down, Strycova had controlled large parts of the first set, and started the second set sharply, forcing more errors from Konta as she broke early on her way to a 3-0 lead out on Centre Court. I actually thought I did quite well in trying to stay with her and trying to close it out in that 5-2 game. I learned what it was like to be under pressure.

"That's something I can be really proud of", she said.

Halep won the French Open previous year and was world No.1 as recently as January before being eclipsed by Naomi Osaka and then Barty.


"I was really pleased with my acceptance of recognising that she was playing really well, and keeping an open mind". I enjoy that position to be in. No matter, she continued to the bitter end-and it was the end-after Halep broke again and served out the match, 6-3, in just an hour and a quarter. I think I'm very open with you guys.

Roger Federer has become the first player with 17 fourth-round appearances, also celebrating the 350th Grand Slam victory as the first player in history, staying on the course for the eighth Wimbledon crown.

Indeed, the used tennis balls from this match, sold as souvenirs to the public, should come with a hefty discount - if there is anything left of them. Getting to the quarter finals is wonderful but what's most exciting for me is the way I've been fighting.

"I play this game with dignity, and I love the sport".

"There were a lot of top seeds that went out in early rounds in Wimbledon", said Djokovic.

Konta had treatment on one of her feet during a change of ends but said it was nothing major. "Obviously it's bittersweet at the moment but nothing but positives from us". Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and Roberto Bautista Agut are yet to lose a set at this year's Wimbledon and it should be interesting to follow the fourth round results on Monday and see who is going to reach the quarters. Once here, though, she had not dropped a set, but then she had not played a seed either.


"I've had more matches this week than literally the last five months, and now I'm feeling better physically it's nearly relief more than anything". "She's a very good player". The mighty American beat Carla Suarez Navarro, 6-2. 6-2.

Britain's Jo Konta staggered away from a head-on collision with twice champion Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon yesterday for a three-set victory which put her in the quarter-finals, and instantly installed her among the favourites for the title.

Even at the age of 37, Federer continues to impress and captivate the tennis world.

Djokovic was also able to breeze into the next round without much trouble, knocking out Humbert in straight sets. "Okay. I mean, I don't think you need to pick on me in a harsh way". The Czech is now set to face 11th seed Serena Williams for a place in the final on Thursday.

"Last year was a great year, I have been very close to winning", Nadal, the 18-time grand slam victor, told BBC Sport. So I was happy to stick with what I was doing well.
