Pliskova was the only player to not have dropped a set en route to the quarterfinal. She had another solid match to end the dream fortnight of Golubic.
Pliskova has lost her last two slam semis in three-setters. But she is a serious contender for this title, having made five finals and won three titles on grass.
It was the battle of tour-level match win leaders of the season. Sabalenka won 83% behind her first serve to convert her slam quarterfinal debut into a semifinal.
Can’t blame Ons if she felt like this.
Angie played some clutch tennis to defeat 2019 quarterfinalist Karolina Muchova, 6-2, 6-3.
The match was much closer than what the scoreline suggests. She saved seven out of eight breakpoints and trailed the second set by a break.
It was the first all-Australian slam quarterfinal since 1980 and quite a few people were excited at the prospect.
Safe to say, however, the match could not deliver quality-wise. Tomljanovic made 20 unforced errors to just 5 winners for a 6-1, 6-3 loss.
Action on Centre Court did not end with Barty’s win. There was still plenty of time to sneak in a doubles match: Vesnina/Kudermetova def. Gauff/McNally in three sets.
Tomorrow is men’s quarterfinals day. The last of the competitors had to be decided on Tuesday.
Medvedev was completely off from the very moment of the resumption.
Hubi sailed through the fifth set to seal the win over Mallorca champion.
