American Alison Riske upsets No. 1 seed Ashleigh Barty at Wimbledon

Turns Out Ash Barty Has Been Sneakily Dropping Disney References All Wimbledon Long

Americans Serena Williams and Alison Riske clash in the 2019 WImbledon women's quarterfinals on Tuesday, each coming off impressive victories. Williams defeated Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2 on Monday.

Barty's fourth-round exit meant third-ranked Karolina Pliskova, who is seeking her first Grand Slam title, could have regained the world No. 1 ranking reaching the Wimbledon final.

"For me, I love to try to integrate them both. I had to take it to Ash".

Barty was all business during week one at the All England Club, steamrolling her way into the fourth round easily and her ruthless streak was on show to begin Manic Monday - one of the best days of the entire Grand Slam when all the remaining big names come out to play.

On the prospect of facing Williams for a place in the last four, she said: "Bring it on!"

The French Open champion had flawless start with four aces in a row in her first service game. The Riske return game was key today: She won eight of 10 points played on Barty's second serve in the final set.

Riske, unseeded and ranked 55th in the world, is a surprise victor but she has showed her form here already, coming from a set down to overcome the 13th seed Belinda Bencic in the previous round.

"Tough one. I think I started well". "I had to play aggressive".

"Today was a great preparation for me going into the Serena match". "I feel confident that I can actually move and I don't have to go for winners so soon because I'm in pain", she told reporters. They were doubles partners in the 2015 Fed Cup when the US faced Italy.

"I think Ali will be ready".

"I do know I issue I always be pleased belief in myself, but you know, that you would have the ability to examine in my reaction after the match, I used to be so disquieted, and that used to be positively a indubitably appropriate moment", she acknowledged.

Social media users also criticised his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge for looking "pained" and as though she "didn't look thrilled to be there".

Williams, who missed about a year of play when she had a baby in 2017 but returned to the tour in 2018, had not played before Wimbledon since the third round of the French Open - skipping the grass-court warm-up tournaments. "I think when I'm doing that, my best tennis kind of comes from that".

"I wish I could get married more often", said Riske with a grin.

Riske, who had spent four more hours on court than the Australian in getting this far, retrieved the break in the eighth game but it was a brief reprieve as Barty took the opener. And while the likes of Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios are known to use their press conferences to slam other players, 23-year-old Barty remained all class until the very end. "Like, OK, finally I can play tennis". She toppled the top seed 3-6, 6-2, 6-3. She easily closed it out from there.

"Also proud of the fact what we've been able to do over the last eight weeks".

"I have some really good memories [of the U.S. Open] from previous year". "She was great to everybody".

Mair is confident he has the Williams vs. Riske victor, and he's going big on how long the match lasts.

If the score had reached 12-12, the pair would have played the first deciding-set tiebreaker since Wimbledon introduced new rules for this year's tournament.

Britain's Jo Konta staggered away from a head-on collision with twice champion Petra Kvitova at Wimbledon for a three-set victory which put her in the quarter-finals, and instantly installed her among the favourites for the title.

The set stayed on serve, going to 3-3 but Barty would not win another game. Martic called for medical treatment on her left leg after the first game of the second set, and her movement appeared to be hampered the rest of the way.

Halep next will face Zhang Shuai of China, a 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 victor over Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine.

The Belgian beat Spain's Fernando Verdasco 7-6 (11/9), 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
