Earlier, Svetlana Kuznetsova reached the quarterfinals after ten years, as she eased past Polish Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-4.

Only one match has come between them on grass with Muguruza triumphing against the odds in three sets at The Championships in 2015, moving through to the fourth round with a 7-6, 1-6, 6-2 victory.

Top-ranked Angelique Kerber and third-seeded Milos Raonic both advanced to the fourth round, though they had different experiences on court.

"I'm just looking forward to playing her. We practice sometimes on grass".

Mattek-Sands' doubles partner Lucie Safarova, with whom she was favourite to add Wimbledon to their US Open, Australian Open and French Open titles, went to the court when she heard of the injury.

"There is absolutely no credible evidence to support this in our opinion, these allegations", Indianapolis attorney James Voyles told the newspaper.

Querrey says "it's always tough to come out and serve first like he had to". But the second set lasted nearly an hour and contained a succession of long baseline exchanges.

"I think when you play top players, first of all you [have] got to have your best level", she said.

No. 13 Ostapenko upset No. 4 Elina Svitolina 6-3, 7-6 (6), and Rybarikova eliminated Petra Martic 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

"There is a bit of that clash right now - the young ones trying to push out, especially, the 35-plus guys".

Despite saving two match points at 4-5, Kerber couldn't cling on to her serve moments later.

Rogers' confident start belied her world ranking of 70, the American hitting twice as many winners as the top seed in the opening set.

On court 12, Jelena Ostapenko continued her dream run to the second Grand Slam quarter-final in a row.

The setting, the stakes and the scheduling all fed into a cauldron of immense pressure ... and created a stage on which two highly credentialed athletes deeply wanted to earn a fresh measure of respect.

After a net-cord forehand winner by Rogers on the first point of the tiebreaker, Kerber sailed through six straight points and took the tiebreaker, 7-2, as her lobs and drop shots started taking their toll on Rogers. Kept it close in the next service game.

Halep will leapfrog Germany's Angelique Kerber in the rankings if she scuppers home hopes of a first British women's singles champion in 40 years with victory over Johanna Konta on Tuesday at the All England Club.

For a place in the quarterfinals, the second seed will play Adrian Mannarino, who rallied from two sets to one down to take down No. 15 seed Gael Monfils. "I think the key was at the end that I was fighting, and I was never giving up no matter what the score was". I know that it's going to be a very difficult match, like everyone.

"Oh, dear - she's still not able to beat an elite player", someone might tut-tut from a distance. I really believe in myself that I can win every match I play. Back in 1984, it was Tim and Tom Gullickson.
