Wimbledon: Vintage Venus, determined Murray in last eight

The 13th-seeded Latvian upset No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-3, 7-6 (6) earlier in the day to win her 11th straight Grand Slam match.

Germany's Angelique Kerber will lose the world number one ranking next week after bowing out 4-6 6-4 6-4 to Spain's Garbine Muguruza, in a clash of the last two women's final runners-up.

On the other hand, it remains to be seen as to where Williams will conclude her latest run through Wimbledon with a quarterfinal matchup now on the horizon.

That would put her in elite company as only Serena Williams has won the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back since Steffi Graf achieved the feat in 1996. "Winning never gets old at any stage in your career, ever, ever". "Just one can win, and that was not me today".

"I think I stretch a little harder now", the former world No.1 said of her extraordinary longevity.

"You'll have to ask me when I'm retired, what it feels like", she said.

Mandana's lawyer Madhukar Dalvi has reported that the matter is in court and they will take it forward as per law. While speaking to a leading daily, Mandana said, "I was thrown out of my matrimonial house seven weeks ago".

Svitolina saved seven match points in the second set, before Ostapenko, seeded 13th, finally won in a tie-break.

With Kerber's loss, either Simona Halep of Romania or Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic will take over as the top-ranked player after the tournament.

Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova advanced to her first Grand Slam quarterfinal after a 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 win over Croatian qualifier Petra Martic.

Williams goes on to tackle Latvia's French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko next.

The number ten seed is the only previous victor remaining in this year's tournament, although the last of her five titles at the All-England Club came back in 2008.

Muguruza goes on to play the experienced Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova, who downed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2 6-4 to reach a fourth Wimbledon quarter-final but first for 10 years.
