Barty Party comes to an end after fourth round loss at Wimbledon

Share

Barty, who hadn't lost a match since May after cruising through the French Open and winning at Birmingham in a lead-up tournament to Wimbledon, said she would move on quickly.

American Alison Riske upset World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty in a fourth-round match at Wimbledon on Monday, while another American, Coco Gauff, saw her dream run end.

All eyes were on the women's singles first round schedule when Gauff was drawn to face seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams. Williams downed Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-2, 6-2 on Monday in a dominant 64-minute exercise. "I played doubles with Serena, but never played against her".

She was bested by an unseeded American who had the guts to attack from the base-line against the world number one.

She may be returning home without the Wimbledon trophy, but Ashleigh Barty will still be loaded with the world No.1 ranking when she lobs in Brisbane this week for a well-deserved mid-season break.

She was also asked about her tendency to quote Disney films at Wimbledon.

But Riske took her chances when she got them, breaking Barty four times on four attempts, including to take a 5-3 lead in the deciding set before serving it out.

"Tough one. I think I started well".

"She has fairly good prospects for her to stay world number one; you can see a lot of paths for her to maintain her number one position", Tennis Australia (TA) analyst Stephanie Kovalchik said.

"Overall, I didn't play a poor match".

"If Karolina plays some good tennis, gets to that, then she'll deserve it".

Numerous netizens wondered if such an abundance of grunts, which they claim Riske used on every shot, is absolute necessity. They were doubles partners in the 2015 Fed Cup when the USA faced Italy. Again, I'm ready for a war. "I think it's been a really, really positive couple of months for us". It's going to be a huge challenge, but I'm really looking forward to it.

She was spraying errors off her forehand - always the most likely wing to break down - but at least took the set to a tie-break. Strycova, 33, is in a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time after upsetting Johanna Konta in straight sets.

But 3AW's Tony Jones says he admires the world number one "even more this morning, despite the fact that she has just been beaten". "I think when I'm doing that, my best tennis kind of comes from that".

Zhang's change of mind over retiring was down to advice from her doubles partner and close friend Australian Sam Stosur.

"In the second set, I gave Alison too many looks at second serves".

Williams' last loss came against American opposition, to Sofia Kenin in the third round at Roland Garros. "She was great to everybody".

"Today wasn't my day, but that's not going to define us as a team, it's not going to define me as a person".

"The evening sooner than, I form of deliberate out what I used to be going to dispute, but I didn't mediate I would be on the winning end, to be handsome", Gauff acknowledged on NBC's "On the present time" on Tuesday about the moments following her magnificent first-spherical Wimbledon bewitch in opposition to Williams.

Two of the stars of women's tennis were beaten at Wimbledon today. She deserves to be in the quarter final.

Barty broke straight back when she unfurled a brilliant backhand victor down the line - a conventional two-hander this time rather than her one-handed slice - to make it 5-3 and the Aussie clinically served out the set.

Federer, who hit 24 winners and just five unforced errors, will face Japan's Kei Nishikori for a place in the semifinals.

In 2017, Konta became the first British woman since Virginia Wade in 1978 to reach the semifinals at the All England Club. Eighth-seeded Nishikori defeated Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the last eight for the second successive year.

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