Konta teaching history at Wimbledon with another victory

World No. 2 Simona Halep of Romania and No. 6 Johanna Konta of Great Britain were victorious in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon on Monday and will face off against each other in the quarterfinals at the All England Club.

On Tuesday, Konta became the first British woman to reach the semis since Virginia Wade in 1978.

Konta is up first on Court One, where she will need to beat France's Caroline Garcia to reach the next stage of the competition.

It was Halep who drew first blood with an early break in the first set, but Konta clawed her way back to level, taking the set to a tie-breaker during which a missed volley gave Halep a lead she built on to win 7-2. "I don't think there was much in that again".

Barrett, the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2019 class, who scored 38 points and had 13 rebounds and five assists. The Americans had a 62-53 rebound advantage and grabbed 30 offensive boards leading to 22 second-chance points.

But Konta has won both their previous tour encounters, including a hard-fought three set quarter-final victory on her way to her career highlight success at this year's Miami Open.

Garbine Muguruza eliminated Angelique Kerber from the Wimbledon tournament, a result that means the German will lose her No. 1 ranking. I'm looking forward to playing Simona, It's a great opportunity for me to play again against one of the best in the world, and to really enjoy being in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon'.

"She finished past year extremely well and kind of showed that she had the potential to get there with the wins that she was having", Murray said.

Tillerson said all actors in the Syrian military theater must follow guidelines to avoid accidents in the air and on the ground. Russia, Turkey and Iran have failed to reach a deal on setting up four de-escalation zones in Syria during talks in Kazakhstan.

But it is what it is, and I'm glad we got on and were scheduled to play on Centre Court so regardless of the rain we were able to play the match.

"I definitely feel that age is not a factor with her", Konta said about Williams.

Garcia chose to step away from the France squad following Yannick Noah's team's Fed Cup defeat to the Czech Republic in November, in which she won singles matches against Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova yet finished on the beaten side. After beating Osaka and Konjuh, up next for Venus there's another, the most interesting, inter-generational clash against the French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko. This match against the Romanian will be her big stern test. I'm playing against an incredibly tough opponent and that's all I've got my mind on. "I hope we can create another battle". "I just want to go there and win it". Can she win the coveted Wimbledon title?
