Pliskova latest star to fall at Wimbledon - Nine Wide World of Sports
They eventually sent him back to the locker room with a standing ovation, acknowledging the talent displayed by Federer during a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over 22nd-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France in the fourth round Monday, yes, but also his superiority over the course of a career that has produced eight Wimbledon championships and 20 Grand Slam titles, both records for a man.
Dutch tennis star Kiki Bertens followed up her victory over Venus Williams at Wimbledon last week by knocking out seventh seed Karolína Plísková in straight sets.
Bertens, a French Open semi-finalist in 2016, is into the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time.
The exit of former world number one Pliskova came after the women´s draw was blown wide open by surprise defeats earlier in the tournament for Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Caroline Wozniacki, Simona Halep and Sloane Stephens.
Serena Williams raced into her 13th Wimbledon quarter-final as the seven-time champion thrashed Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 6-2, 6-2 in just 62 minutes on Monday.
With the top 10 women having all been eliminated, No. 11 Angela Kerber is the highest-seeded player left in the tournament.
With a tiny tennis racket bag on her arm and rocking a cute pink frock, the 10-month-old was all smiles as she prepared to head out for the match.
The writing was on the wall when Rodina fired a forehand long to give Williams a break for a 2-0 lead and, though she produced a stunning cross-court forehand en route to breaking Williams and gaining a glimmer of hope, that hope was brutally extinguished as the American immediately broke back to love. "But it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest".
"I think", Federer said when it was over, "I can be very pleased". She was the lone top-10 women's seed still around at this upset-filled tournament, and now she's also gone.
"I'm a perfectionist, I always find something", the 36-year-old responded when asked about her near-flawless display. So hopefully I'll start feeling better mentally as well as I am on the court'.
"I'm just not afraid to miss. I didn't expect it, honestly".
