WIMBLEDON OPEN: Kiki Bertens Edges Karolina Pliskova For A Quarter Final Place

Kiki Bertens is a Wimbledon quarter-finalist! Her victory over Karolina Pliskova means there are no top-10 seeds remaining in the women’s side of the draw.

Seven-time champion Serena Williams also reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals with a straightforward win over Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina.

In what was a rare meeting between mothers at this stage of a Grand Slam tournament, Williams was in control throughout a 6-2 6-2 victory.

Rodina, whose left thigh and right knee were taped, often moved slowly and could not deal with Williams’ power.

The American, 36, faces Italian world number 52 Camila Giorgi next.
