Serena through to quarter-finals

Serena through to quarter-finals

Serena Williams has been fined US$10,000 (NZ$15,000) by the All England Club for damaging a court during practice before the Wimbledon tournament started. After losing the first set, Alison made a solid comeback and beat Barty 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to enter the quarterfinals.

Williams will face Alison Riske in the quarter-finals after her compatriot downed world number one Ashleigh Barty via a gruelling 96-minute encounter on Number Two Court. Williams, who was sidelined by a knee injury earlier in the year, added: 'The rust is definitely wearing off. Williams is seeking her eighth women's singles title at Wimbledon.

Ukraine's Elina Svitolina also moved into the last eight with a 6-4, 6-2 win against Petra Martic of Croatia.

Serena Williams copped a bigger fine than Fabio Fognini.

Speaking on Eurosport Wilander said, "I think that Serena looks good and she has worked hard, she looks fitter than she did in Paris". She raised both her arms in celebration after the fifth break getting a 5-2 lead in the second set.

The job cuts over three years make up 20% of Deutsche's global workforce and will hit its investment bank hard. The new division, headed by Hoops, will be at the heart of the lender's future business model.


Riske had won the grass court title at 's-Hertogenbosch in the run-up to Wimbledon and her credentials on the surface eventually shone through as the match progressed.

Tomic was docked $90 thousand- his entire first-round prize money - for allegedly not giving his best efforts during a lame 6-2 6-1 6-4 loss to Jo- Wilfried Tsonga. "It's in the heat of the moment, it's an unfortunate comment but we readily accept the apology that, as an example, Fabio gave".

Still, Lewis said, "it wouldn't surprise me if in the end there's a small fine". The fine was the largest fine handed out by the All England Club on Monday. That match on Court No. 1 follows seven-time Wimbledon champion Williams against No. 30 seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

With Federer and Djokovic likely to join him in the last four for the second straight slam, the third seed reflected on their lengthy period of dominance.
