Djokovic muscles in on women's quarter-final day

Posted July 12, 2017

She is smashing records and the next landmark facing her in Grand Slams will be Virginia Wade's 1977 mark - the last British woman to reach a Grand Slam final when she won Wimbledon.

However, the last time the two players met, Halep beat Konta at the Fed Cup in Romania.

Asked if female players could only gain greater popularity with more exposure, Mr Lewis pointed to the last three women's rounds, which will have days without men's singles matches on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. She had an wonderful win and is a great player. She has a great forehand but it's quite an unusual stroke. Just when it looked like a five-set marathon was on the cards, Murray rallied spectacularly and showed how a champion delivers under pressure.

"You probably saw way better than me because the TV is focused on him". She may never have a better chance here.

Konta and Halep must wait to start their tie because Novak Djokovic's fourth-round match against Adrian Mannarino, held over from Monday, is first on Centre Court at 12:00 BST.

The Romanian is refusing to count her chickens after blowing an opportunity to go top at the French Open when she lost the final to Jelena Ostapenko from a set and a service break up.

"The competition keeps you growing", Williams said. As time went on, there were questions about whether she might retire, especially after a half-dozen first-round losses at majors.

The pre-match cake before her quarterfinal against Halep would likely be a chocolate chip and banana muffin, she revealed.

"I didn't have an emotional match with her". She won't win by staying at the back of the court.

Boris Becker first visited the IMG Academy late in 1993. The instructions, however, didn't prevent Garcia to come back in the second set. While Boris was with us he wanted to know everything about the academy and inspected all the facilities. I'm playing against an incredibly tough opponent and that's all I've got my mind on.

"Even sometimes on the WTA Tour when there is (legal) coaching and they can come on court, it's not making any difference, either, because maybe you have one minute to talk and it's not making any difference".

However, Boris had been sliding down the world rankings that year and I wanted to know if he really wanted to play tennis any more. "Then, yeah, I kind of followed lead of what was happening". I've played her before, so it's a lot different than today. "If I get a chance I will tell her how well she played and wish her good luck". Those who back Konta have every right to do so in a wide open draw. "I think it's very hard for them to understand my position in it". Paire, ranked 46, is known for his backhand, temper, drop shots and all-round unpredictability.
