Garbine Muguruza vs Svetlana Kuznetsova

Garbiñe Muguruza clenches her first after her quarterfinal win

Rain postpones two women's single quarterfinals matches at Wimbledon

Spain's Garbine Muguruza returns v Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova during the quarter-final match at Wimbledon yesterday.

Five-time champion, Venus Williams, won in her 100th singles match at Wimbledon to knock out French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko and reach the semi-finals. Ostapenko's first two Wimbledon matches went to three sets, her third match was a tough 7-5, 7-5 win over Camila Giorgi, and she won her fourth-round match over Elina Svitolina in a second-set tiebreak.

Muguruza has won the Internationaux de France previous year, but it was tilted from the second round of Wimbledon a few weeks later. I think it's great these coaches can work more their job.

Unlike Muguruza, Kuznetsova has held onto her ideal record winning in straight sets in each of her four matches so far at Wimbledon.

The fivefold champion of Wimbledon is in the square of aces for the second year in a row, having taken the measure of Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 7-5 on centre court. The pair have never played each other on grass.

But she dumped out Angelique Kerber yesterday in the last round and looks well-placed to go the distance again - providing she can beat the Russian.

The Spaniard will play now play Magdalena Rybarikova, who continued her remarkable run by beating 24th seed Coco Vanderweghe 6-3 6-3.
