Nishikori through to quarter finals of Wimbledon for first time

Nishikori through to quarter finals of Wimbledon for first time

"What's going on? - England, it's coming home or not?" asked the sweat-drenched Spaniard with a grin moments after handing baby-faced Australian Alex de Minaur a 6-1 6-2 6-4 roasting. "I wasn't aggressive enough", said Gulbis.

Kyrgios surrendered the first set in 16 minutes, was warned for unsportsmanlike behaviour after launching a ball into the stands in frustration in the second.

Nishikori only needed one set point to convert and seize total command at two sets to love up.

Kei Nishikori celebrates defeating Nick Kyrgios in their men's singles match. I think that he's a future Grand Slam victor.

The lash back comes after the former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli, labelled the controversial Australian "pathetic" and accused him of squandering his talent. "Nothing was really working the way I wanted it to do". He's one of the best players on the tour.

A loss to Nishikori, save for the diabolical first set, is hardly something to be ashamed about.

It was Zverev's second consecutive five-set match after his win over Taylor Fritz.

Osaka said she found playing on Wimbledon's famous center court overwhelming.

Wimbledon could detract from cup final, jokes Roger Federer
I don't think it's fair but it is what it is". "Rafa [Nadal] and Roger played all four matches on Centre, myself only one". Ramos then hit Djokovic with a time violation warning for taking too long to serve in the seventh game of the fourth set.

Kei Nishikori said he played "the best game in my life" as he defeated Australia's Nick Kyrgios in straight sets last night.

Kei Nishikori will next play against Novak Djokovic.

"I haven't spent too much time on the court". "I didn't deserve to be treated the way I was treated by certain individuals".

Ever since his stunning debut at the All England Club in 2014 when he went on a giant-killing spree that included the scalps of Richard Gasquet and Rafael Nadal to reach the quarter-finals, the expectations on the young Aussie have risen when the year's third major rolls around.

Edmund ended up holding serve but Djokovic broke at his next opportunity to make sure there will be no British players in the second week of the tournament.

"I was 100 percent convinced it (bounced) twice", Djokovic said. "I asked him. So, yes, it was quite a odd decision from (the) chair umpire, but it happens". Djokovic got into a bit of a two-sided argument with the crowd after he was booed following a time violation in the third set. I thought that honestly. It was a very long match for me, very gruelling.

"Those are the things obviously that people don't get to see or hear on the TV". I just struggled with a lot of things. That's what I didn't like. Making her fourth appearance at Wimbledon, Ostapenko will look to improve on her run to the quarter-finals previous year. "I would prefer to play, like, a South American guy who's never played on grass before".
