Wimbledon glance: Serena Williams excited for quarters

Dominic Inglot

Not one top-10 seed has made the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Predictably, Pliskova was asked why there have been so many surprises.

"I faced a thousand and three seeds in my life, so I'm okay", she said. "I'm telling myself, 'Why didn't I break the first game of the second?'"

Bidding for an eighth championship at the All England Club, Williams will be back on court Tuesday, but she is seeded only 25th, and that actually represents a big bump up from her ranking of No. 181. The only different thing is that it's Federer in front of me, and he's a really good opponent.

Woman dependent on oxygen tank dies after company cuts power
The family called paramedics who showed up with a portable oxygen tank. "She was trying to catch her breath". A day late and a dollar short, the power company turned on Daniels' electricity one day after she died.

Leading 5-4 and two points away from taking the first set at 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova struck a backhand onto the baseline that was called out.

"I think", Federer said when it was over, "I can be very pleased".

Rodina knocked out Madison Keys in the third round to progress to this stage, but Williams needed just 62 minutes to end her unlikely run and will next face Camila Giorgi as she looks to win her first slam since returning to the WTA Tour following the birth of her first child.

Of ther other quarter-finalists, only Kerber and former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko have won Grand Slams.

Brexit secretary David Davis resigns
Jacob Rees-Mogg, who leads a bloc of Brexit-supporting Conservative MPs in Parliament, urged May to give up on the plan. Mrs May is expected to tell MPs that the strategy agreed on at Chequers is the "right Brexit" for Britain.

The tall Czech answered an early break with one of her own but 20th seed Bertens secured a second break with a superb touch volley to move 5-3 ahead and then held easily.

"I'm just not afraid to miss".

Williams isn't complaining about the high number of shock results, but she couldn't resist at jab at the Wimbledon organisers who only seeded her 25th despite her remarkable record. The only fourth-round match that wasn't completed on Monday - fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro against Frenchman Gilles Simon - will also be played to a finish.

If Isner is ever going to get close to that scoreline again it may be in the last eight on Wednesday, when he faces another ace machine in 6ft 5in Milos Raonic, who saw off American Mackenzie McDonald in four sets.

IOS 11.4.1 update improves Find My AirPods feature
There isn't anything in the way of new features, instead delivering on some bug fixes and stability improvements. Apple curiously didn't include the security in the release notes, probably to not alert "interested parties".

Bertens built a 4-1 lead in the second set with Pliskova appearing to lack energy at times - occasionally making little attempt to chase balls down. This was a match which I maybe should have won, if I maybe play a little bit better I can win.
