World No. 1 Maria Sharapova shows her disappointment after losing to Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round at Wimbledon, ending the Russian's hopes of repeating her 2004 success.
German joy —
Lisicki, who was beaten by Sharapova in last year's semifinals, was delighted after securing a quarterfinal clash with fellow German Angelique Kerber.
Kerber call for Clijsters —
Eighth seed Kerber, also a quarterfinalist at last month's French Open, reached the last eight in London for the first time after beating former world No. 1 Kim Clijsters.
Farewell fizzles —
Clijsters' final appearance at Wimbledon ahead of her second retirement later this year lasted less than 50 minutes as the four-time grand slam winner lost 6-1 6-1.
Jumping for joy —
Serena Williams is also through to the last eight as she seeks her first grand slam title since winning Wimbledon for the fourth time in 2010.
Serena wins battle —
The American sixth seed progressed despite losing the second set against Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova on day seven at the All England Tennis Club.
Czech challenge —
The 13-time grand slam winner will next play defending champion Petra Kvitova. The Czech Republic's world No. 4 beat 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone.
Paszek's progress —
Young Austrian Tamira Paszek reached the quarterfinals for the second year in a row, beating Italian 21st seed Roberta Vinci 6-2 6-2, and will next face world No. 2 Victoria Azarenka.
Ana's anguish —
Paszek will hope to fare better than Serbia's Ana Ivanovic, who was thrashed 6-1 6-0 by Australian Open champion Azarenka in a one-sided battle of former top-ranked players.
One Maria wins —
Maria Kirilenko beat China's Peng Shuai to earn her second grand slam quaerterfinal appearance. The Russian will take on Polish third seed Agnieszka Radwanska, who defeated Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi.
