Romanian second seed Simona Halep took the first set on a tie-break but the British number one responded well to take the second set 7-6.

Novak Djokovic criticised Wimbledon officials for making the "wrong decision" in postponing his fourth round match yesterday after he eased into the quarter-finals a day later than expected with a 6-2 7-6 (5) 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino.

The runner-up at the All England Club in 2015 beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-4 on No. 1 Court in a match that was delayed at the start by rain.

And we saw today, Djokovic was also fighting an issue with his shoulder/elbow. But the treatment was to no avail, and Djokovic ended the match shortly thereafter, shaking his head as he walked to the net. We respect the players' views.

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.

As for the opinions of his ailment, he said, "The specialists that I've talked to, they haven't really been too clear, mentioning also surgery, mentioning different options". He was not very pleased to see that, ' said Djokovic. Is that right? I think so, just because of timing, as well.

Her thoughts were echoed by the men's World No.1, Andy Murray, who acknowledged that the scheduling was weighted in favour of male players. Murray was hampered by a sore hip. One year ago, Roger Federer took to Centre Court against Milos Raonic for the semifinals. This will be his 12th semifinal appearance at Wimbledon.

Ostapenko had never before been past the third round at a major tournament prior to this year's French Open. The grass-court season was hard because of the back issues I had, and the knee issues.

"Yeah, it's big for him to step out on court and give it a go, even though maybe knowing, like me previous year, that chances are slim he was going to defend this title".

"I was able maybe for 30 minutes to play with some pain that was bearable, let's call it that way".

"I don't think anyone's suggesting it is fair". I'm rested. I'm fresh. "Everything was how am I doing things?" I would say it's taking the marquee matches', Lewis said. "It is not about male or female, in the end it is about which matches you feel the public and broadcasters most want to see". I wanted to play.
