Angelique Kerber opens up on Wimbledon shock and Serena Williams

All top-10 women's seeds OUT of Wimbledon before the quarter-finals as Pliskova falls

Ostapenko started slowly in her 7-5, 6-4 win over Cibulkova, while Kerber suffered four breaks against Kasatkina-three of which came in succession at the close of the second set.

"It was tougher than the scoreline", Williams said.

"I don't know what I did (to turn things round)". "I play a great level today", she said.

Next up for Kerber is Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, who took out Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 6-2.

Pliskova crashed to a 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to big-hitting Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens, leaving 11th seed Angelique Kerber as the highest-ranked player left in the wide open draw. It's also a first for any Grand Slam tournament in the 50-year professional era.

Not one top-10 seed has made the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Serena Williams, who lost a set for the first time at this year's Wimbledon, came back to win the final two sets 6-3, 6-4.

Serena Williams celebrates after winning against Italy's Camila Giorgi during their women's singles quarter-final match on the eighth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London, July 10, 2018.

Serena Williams of the USA celebrates winning her fourth round match against Russia's Evgeniya Rodina.

Hsieh returned the ball over the net and into the court as Cibulkova immediately challenged.

Or when, about 10 minutes later, she stretched for a lunging backhand victor to break at love and take control of the third set, then raised a fist, figuring a berth in her 11th semifinal at the All England Club was close at hand. I think that I know how to play on the surface.

"For me, really I'm not thinking about others".

"It sounds insane to maybe have the chance to share a German final in Wimbledon".

Latvian history-maker Jelena Ostapenko remains in the hunt for a second grand slam title in 13 months after ending Aliaksandra Sasnovich's giant-killing campaign.

The 52nd-ranked Giorgi, who had never taken a set off Williams in three previous meetings, overpowered the American to take the first set, hitting more winners and aces.

She bridled at suggestions that she had wasted an opportunity to have a real tilt at the title. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals. "In this tournament, she seems to be in the right mood".
