Andy Murray and Johanna Konta storm into Wimbledon quarter-finals

Murray has dropped just one set this tournament and is coming off a match in which he had just eight unforced errors and won 45 percent of his return points.

'It's unlike other grand slams.

Tournament officials have defended their decision to put four men's matches and only two women's on Wimbledon biggest courts on Monday, saying that star player appeal over-rides any idea of equal allocation by gender.

The last set lost by Nadal at a major was the fifth in the Australian Open final in January against Federer. "Whereas with Rafa's confidence, I thought he was also going to be there", said Federer, who has a cold. "It wasn't as easy maybe as it looks like".

Johanna Konta became the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since 1984 with a hard-fought win over France's Caroline Garcia.

Men's doubles 3rd round: (16) Oliver Marach (Aut) & Mate Pavic (Cro) bt Jay Clarke (Gbr) & Marcus Willis (Gbr) 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7-3), (1) Henri Kontinen (Fin) & John Peers (Aus) bt Hugo Nys (Fra) & Antonio Sancic (Cro) 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-4, (4) Lukasz Kubot (Pol) & Marcelo Melo (Bra) bt (14) Florin Mergea (Rom) & Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi (Pak) 6-7 (3-7) 4-6 6-1 6-4 6-2. Just after the match that day, I said sorry if she felt bad, ' Halep said.

"I mean, today was by far the best I hit the ball, the cleanest I hit the ball".

"I'm just honestly very happy and blessed that I didn't injure myself that much".

But Murray then confessed his lack of popularity in certain sections of the population while discussing the merits of Britain having two players in the last eight for the first time since 1973 following Jo Konta's march through in the ladies singles. The seventh-seeded Croat beat Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.

She insisted the incident would not affect their match, and said: 'That's many, many months ago now.

Last year, Djokovic beat him in the Wimbledon second round before crashing to a stunning last 32 exit against Sam Querrey that triggered his long decline. No. 13 Grigor Dimitrov, 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic vs.

At one stage in the first set, play stopped as Mladenovic and Riske discussed the state of the turf with supervisor Pam Whytcross.

Kerber, who reached the Wimbledon final past year but lost to Serena Williams, was beaten by Garbine Muguruza on No. 2 Court, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Indeed, away from big stadium courts, fans can see title contenders such as French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko taking on fourth-seed Elina Svitolina on Court 12. "I'll try to get a lot out of it, if possible", said the 30-year-old Frenchman.

We had some real joy on Saturday with Roger Federer winning the first set 7-6 at 7/1, but I must admit it didn't exactly go as planned.

"When you play, sometimes you feel exhausted and you have to push through that pain barrier as well".

The highlight of the match was a thrilling fourth-set tiebreak.

Anderson was able to pull off a minor miracle as he saved the match point.

This isn't the first time the grass at Wimbledon has drawn the ire of competitors. However, she won the girls' title at the All England Club in 2014.

On her court placing for her match against Elina Svitolina, Ostapenko said: "I think I deserve to play on a better court than Court 12."Also, Elina is number four in the world. I hope this match has the same impact".
