Wimbledon glance: Serena Williams excited for quarters

Breaking: All Top 10 Women’s Seeds Eliminated At Wimbledon

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.

Boris Johnson resigns throwing May government into chaos over Brexit
Jeremy Hunt, who has replaced Mr Johnson as foreign secretary, said he would be "four square" behind her. Hunt, who had been the health secretary, is considered one of May's most loyal ministers.

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.

Thai cave rescue: Third phase of operation is underway, officials say
Once again, British cave experts spearheaded yesterday's operation which involved more than 100 divers. Medical officials told reporters Tuesday that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and talking.

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.

Trump's longtime driver sues for thousands of hours of unpaid overtime
Just previous year , a supply company claimed they were never paid for paint that was used to re-paint Trump's luxury golf resort. Cintron is suing for about $350,000, Hutcher said, which would cover the unpaid wages, penalties, interest and attorneys' fees.

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.
