Barty party not quite over despite loss

Barty party not quite over despite loss

World number three, Karolina Pliskova, also lost her Wimbledon match last night, and world number two, Naomi Osaka, lost in the first round, so Barty maintains her world number one ranking.

The unseeded American crashed Barty's party with a 3-6 6-2 6-3 boilover on Monday.

After Barty won the first set, the 21st in a row she had taken since her French Open semi-final, it seemed she might continue a run at Wimbledon that had seen her glide through her opening three matches in three hours, losing only 12 games.

Riske said she was "proud" of herself for reaching the quarter finals for the first time.

Riske, on the other hand, is ranked 55th in the world, whose best showing in the past was reaching the third round at Wimbledon and the fourth round at the 2013 US Open.

The 37-year-old Williams advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the 14th time.

"I think everyone is also getting better".

It will be the 29-year-old's first appearance in a Grand Slam quarter-final.

Tropical Development in the Gulf this Week?
Monday, the NHC said there is an 80-percent chance of a tropical cyclone formation during the next five days. If the depression's winds reach 39 miles per hour , it would become Tropical Storm Barry.


And Coco Gauff's dream run came to an abrupt end when the consistency of seventh seed and former world number one Simona Halep proved a step too far for the 15-year-old American. Riske however, showed admirable tenacity to stay with Barty in the second set and as the Australian's serve began to badly falter, she seized the initiative.

The Twitterati were protesting again over the scheduling of her Riske match on Court Two but the former cricketer played a straight bat to reporters' queries, saying: "I'll play on any court I'm scheduled on". "But, you know, every match is still super hard", she said.

It leaves the women's title wide open but Williams carries more than just talent onto the court despite her ageing legs she still appears to hold a fear factor over most of her opponents. The Riske return game was key today: She won eight of 10 points played on Barty's second serve in the final set. Phil Brook, from the first time I came to Wimbledon, he's remembered my name.

"I used to be good telling myself to head for my shots, esteem it's either now or never". Ash Barty at the press conference after her fourth round Wimbledon loss to Alison Riske. It's a game. I love playing the game. "But in the same breath, it's been an incredible few months", Barty told reporters after the match.

The unseeded U.S. star seized on Barty's wavering serve and routinely found the corners of the court to send the Aussie into her first three-setter since the French Open semifinals in June.

"I didn't win a tennis match".

Court 2 is a attractive court here.

When asked by a reporter if she would have done anything differently, Barty responded that she had no regrets. Against Barty, she took chances and broke the world's No. 1 player four times on four tries.
