Simona Halep wants Wimbledon 'revenge' after ending Cori Gauff remarkable run

Halep was broken in her first service game as Zhang raced to a 3-0 lead in the first set, and the Romanian faced four more break points at 4-1. Zhang was far from replicating her form in the previous set.

The Chinese grabbed one break from five opportunities and suffered three breaks of serve to propel Simona through, making the best possible start with a forehand victor in game two that secured a break for her. Facing an even bigger deficit, Halep fended off four break points in game six and that proved to be the turning point, gaining boost and breaking back in the next game after a costly double fault from Shuai.

The 30-year-old will face either 15-year-old Coco Gauff or former world number one Simona Halep for a place in the semi-finals.

The champion at the All England Club in 2017 and French Open in 2016 wrote on Twitter that it was "the end of an Extraordinary ride. Last year was the best yet", added the 27-year-old.

He went on to comment, "Simona Halep won't have too many chances to win Wimbledon because of the way she plays and this is one of them".
