Barty began imperiously, booming four consecutive aces in her opening service game and marching through the first set.

"When her back is against the wall, she plays really well typically". Asked about starting at Wimbledon at a press conference July 2, Barty replied: "Kind of came into it thinking kind of like hakuna matata, just relax and go for it".

In her first Grand Slam quarter-final world number 68 Muchova will face eighth-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina after she eased past Croatia's Petra Martic. "She had the ability, and she had a strong work ethic".

"I think for me personally, no, I haven't lived my life any differently", she said. Tough one to swallow but I lost to a better player. She stopped and said hello. "She played a great match today".

"What she's doing now, it couldn't happen to a better girl".

American tennis player Alison Riske, now ranked 89, recently secured a deafening victory over Australian tennis star Ashleigh Barty at Wimbledon, securing a pass to the championship's quarter-finals.

"I am really happy I can play in the quarter finals again, it's one of my favorite tournaments", she told BBC Sport. Riske will face 23-time major champion Serena Williams on Tuesday in London. Lleyton Hewitt, at just shy of $30 million, is the only Aussie men's player with more.

"Today was a great preparation for me going into the Serena match".

‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood arrested in domestic battery case
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department was called to a residence, and subsequently took the reality star into custody. The alleged incident and the charge are eerily similar to Amber's previous arrest for domestic violence in December of 2010.

"I'm so incredibly excited". Garofoli remembers conducting camps for youngsters and having Riske catch his eye early on. "I'm very proud of what we've been able to achieve".

So, increasingly, is the entire tennis community in Western Pennsylvania.

"She never really (left the area) to train, like you see so numerous top players do", Bowman said.

"I'm still fairly new to high school, so I haven't figured all that out yet".

Gauff, the Florida teen who captured hearts at Wimbledon, fell Monday to seventh seed Simona Halep of Romania, who moved into the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-3 win.

While she heads home for a rest, Riske will try to continue her giant-killing run against the biggest of them all.

It's always been, though, grass courts where Riske has felt most comfortable.

The Queensland native had won her previous 15 matches and hadn't dropped a set in the first three rounds at the All England Club before entering Monday's contest on Court No.2. There, she fended off a break point in game five with a backhand drive-volley victor at the net, moving ahead with another flawless forehand down the line victor and sealing the deal with a nice hold in the next game to stay on the title course.
