Pegula in form to last eight
Jessica Pegula enjoyed one of those barely credible days at Wimbledon as her racket blasted winners left, right and center in a 6-1, 6-3 fourth round defeat of hapless Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko.
Tsurenko kept slapping her thighs and talking animatedly into her din, but try as she might, her game seemed to have slipped into a terminal coma.
Pegula took full advantage of her opponent’s woes as she blasted out thunderous winners from the baseline to a 5-0 lead in 18 blinding minutes.
Perhaps the Ukrainian is still feeling the effects of the massive effort she put into beating Ana Bogdan in the previous round, when Tsurenko won the longest women’s singles tiebreak (20-18 in the third set) on a slam in the Open Era. to stop the burning Pegula’s attack.

Spotting celebrities is easy if you stare at Center Court’s Royal Box, but there’s more fun to be had in identifying the small-time celebrities who wander the grounds of SW19, like former Scottish (and Birmingham & Aston Villa) coach Alex McLeish.
He was around Court 12 when compatriot Jamie Murray came through in doubles. McLeish’s chances of a VIP invitation in the future may hinge on Sir Alex Ferguson’s request to roll out the red carpet for Aberdeen’s 1983 European Cup Winners’ Cup side.

‘Dimitrov in top form’
By Chris Bascombe
Anyone passing Court 2 before had to keep their eyes to the sky as crowd favorite Frances Tiafoe was involved in a top-notch tantrum. On his way to a hammer from Grigor Dimitrov, the tenth seed got a ball from the ball girl only to deflect it by hitting it over and beyond the stands.
Unfortunately for him it turned out to be one of his most memorable bouts of a disappointing exit, Dimitrov looked on top form.

Wimbledon has a new star
By Fiona Tomas on Court 3
What a fairytale run Mirra Andreeva is experiencing at The All England Club. The 16-year-old qualifier couldn’t quite believe what she’d done after Anastasia Potapova volleyed into the net as the teenager bagged the biggest win of her fledgling career. This was only her sixth game on grass.
walking back to the track to take it all in, Andreeva sauntered to her seat and buried her face in her towel, visibly overwhelmed with emotion. She received a standing ovation as she left Court 3. Wimbledon has a new star.

Day seven at Wimbledon
Hello and welcome to Wimbledon on Mid-Sunday, where a host of stars are on their way to the quarter-finals.
Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek headline the action on Center Court while Elina Svitolina and Victoria Azarenka go head-to-head on Court One.
The political significance of this match is huge with a Ukrainian going up against a player from Belarus.
At the French Open, Svitolina defeated two Russian players before falling to Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals. She was booed in Paris for sticking to the Ukrainian stance of not shaking hands with opponents from the two countries because of the ongoing war.
And Svitolina is well aware of what this match means and said: “Many Ukrainians will watch, will support me. I will go out and muster the fighting spirit and just really fight for every point.
However, Azarenka said she was happy for Svitolina after she had a baby and returned to court.
“I’m really happy for her to have had this incredible experience, through this incredible experience of having a family and the ability to get back on tour very quickly,” she said.
“(She’s) already picked up her game at a really high level… I can’t speak for her, but it seems like she’s not playing with that much pressure.”
Djokovic will take on 17th-seeded Hubert Hurkacz, who is 0-5 against the seven-time champion. They play at Centre, where Djokovic has not lost in the final to Andy Murray since July 7, 2013.
Hurkacz, from Poland, has not lost his serve in three wins at this year’s tournament, all in straight sets. They have met once before at the All England Club, in the third round in 2019, when Djokovic won in four sets.
“He plays very comfortably on grass,” Djokovic said of Hurkacz. “He beat Federer here a few years ago. He’s a player who doesn’t mind playing in a big stadium.”
