Wimbledon 2019: Ash Barty philosophical after fourth round defeat to Alison Riske

Ashleigh Barty and Serena Williams at Wimbledon

The tireless Riske came into her clash against Barty having played nearly five more hours of tennis than her opponent after having to negotiate three consecutive three-set matches - having to come back from a set down in two of those to take down No.13 seed Belinda Bencic and No.22 Donna Vekic.

The American's maiden quarter-final will likely come against 23-times grand slam champion and seven-times Wimbledon victor Serena Williams, who plays Spanish veteran Carla Suarez Navarro later on Monday.

Men's fourth round: No. 1 Novak Djokovic beat Ugo Humbert 6-3, 6-2, 6-3; No. 2 Roger Federer beat Matteo Berrettini 6-1, 6-2, 6-2; No. 3 Rafael Nadal beat Joao Sousa 6-2, 6-2, 6-2; No. 26 Guido Pella beat No. 15 Milos Raonic 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3), 8-6.

Unshaken, 29-year-old Riske - who won the pair's only previous meeting in 2016 - brought the set back on serve, only for the world number one to take the final two games and pocket the opener in 32 minutes.

"Today at times when I really needed to back myself, the execution wasn't quite there". Even Barty had to nod her approval when Riske passed her with a punishing backhand victor to take a 2-1 lead and there were no easy points as both players fought like warriors to keep themselves in the contest.

Groth wrote a column in the Herald Sun slamming Williams for being unaware that Ash Barty claimed the top spot as the new number one women's tennis player. "I had to play aggressive".

The family was awarded the money in December as a result of a wrongful death lawsuit against the North Korean government. Trump tweeted shortly after, writing he had been "misinterpreted" over Warmbier's death.

"In the second set, I gave Alison too many looks at second serves. She played a great match today". "I think that if I just bring that fight every point, I think that good things will happen". But I think just the way I've been fighting is more exciting for me.

Barty started off by winning points with her serve against Riske.

"I couldn't begin to say what it means to me".

Following the victory over the world's number one female player, the match visitors didn't discuss the techniques that helped Riske to gain the upper hand over Barty, but the unbearably loud shrieks that accompanied Riske's play.

"The rust definitely wearing off", Williams said. "It's going to be a huge challenge, but I'm really looking forward to it". Again, I'm ready for a war.
