At the Royal Wedding - 'I've known Meghan for years!' So it's really cool.

They traded breaks early in both sets before Ostapenko broke decisively for a 3-2 lead in the second when Cibulkova sent a forehand long.

In the men's singles, Juan Martin Del Potro became the final player to take his spot in the last eight, narrowly edging Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5) to set up a quarter-final date opposite Rafael Nadal. She won a Grand Slam, as well.

Since seeds were introduced in the 1920s, it's the first time none of the top-10 have reached the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon. In the first set, the 26-year-old Italian, playing in her first Grand Slam quarterfinals, had Williams scrambling after her lightning-quick serves and almost knocked her off of her feet with one that notched 118 miles per hour.

That was winning majors, and Williams enters the semifinals as the lowest-seeded player (25th) remaining in this year's Wimbledon tournament. He next faces Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the US 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Kerber, the 2016 Australian and US Open champion, said: "I mean, the pressure is not always on my side". After the first set, I just said, let's go three sets. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".

"Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise, to be here, to be in the semi-finals", she said.

But the third set was all Williams, and she recorded six of her seven aces - making it clear she's moved well past her pectoral injury that forced her to withdraw ahead of the fourth round in Paris - and seemed to be in control throughout. "That gives me the confidence that I know that I have to be the aggressive one which has to really try to play point by point and take the point in my hand".

(12) J Ostapenko d.

The 2017 French Open champion lost her first two service games and was down 5-2 in the opening set before rallying to force a tiebreaker against her Belarussian opponent. By the time she was done, she had hit 20 winners and only 14 unforced errors in a match of high quality on both sides.

When tennis champion Serena Williams competed Tuesday at Wimbledon, eventually defeating Italian tennis player Camila Giorgi, she had an old friend cheering her on - her ex, Drake.

This is unchartered territory for 29-year-old Goerges.

Federer responded to Tendulkar later in the day, saying that he is ready to take notes right now and there is no need to wait till the end of the tournament.
