Updates from Day 8 of Wimbledon 2013.

====================================================================================

It was a tough day for the home spectators. While Laura Robson was knocked out earlier in the day, Andy Murray too had some nervous moments before he defeated Mikhail Youzhny in straight sets 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 6-1. Murray will now lock horns with Spain's Fernando Verdasco who defeated Kenny de Schepper 6-4 6-4 6-4 to reach his first Wimbledon quarter-final.

Meanwhile Juan Martin Del Potro too sealed his quarter-final berth as he defeated Andreas Seppi 6-4, 7-6(2), 6-3. The Argentine will now play David Ferrer.

====================================================================================

ANOTHER MAJOR UPSET! Yes it its true! Serena Williams has been knocked out of Wimbledon 2013 by Sabine Lisicki! The German defeated the World No. 1 in three sets 6-2, 1-6, 6-4. So we haven’t seen enough from this Wimbledon yet!

====================================================================================

Meanwhile in the men’s category, after losing the first set 6-7, David Ferrer bounced back to topple his opponent Dodig in four sets. Ivan Dodig won the first set, 7-6 and managed to put some fight even in the second, but the kind of fighter he is, Ferrer had the final laugh as he won the match 6-7, 7-6, 6-1, 6-1. This is Ferrer’s seventh major consecutive quarterfinal. What a player!

====================================================================================

The local crowd was left disappointed yet once again when their only hope in the women’s category Laura Robson was knocked out in straight sets by Kaia Kanepi who won 7-6, 7-5. So even though he is more of a Scottish, all eyes would now be on Andy Murray to end Britain’s Grand Slam drought.

====================================================================================

After Petra Kvitova, it was the 27-year-old Belgian Kirsten Flipkens who defeated her opponent Pennetta 7-6, 6-4 to seal her first Grand Slam quarterfinal berth. She will now face Kvitova on Tuesday.

====================================================================================

So we have the first player who made through to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2013. It’s Petra Kvitova. The Czech won her maiden Wimbledon title in 2011 and she reached the top eight after defeating Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain 7-6 (5), 6-3.

====================================================================================

After a gap of one day, we are back to the live coverage of Wimbledon 2013. The Centre Court will hold three crucial matches today. Serena Williams will take on Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round of the women’s singles.

In the men’s category, Britain’s Andy Murray will lock horns with Mikhail Youzhny while World No. 1 Novak Djokovic will play against Tommay Haas.

From the very first game when Lisickinwon against Serena was very sure and had an intuition that today Serena will be knocked out. In spite of leading 3-0 in the third set had a feeling that Lisicki will come back and what an incredible moment when she was down in the winning game but she never lost her nerve.

Many would have thought S. Williams would win the Wimbledon but I thought the bad exchanges of comments between her and Sharapova plus the rape comments have hounded her that she did not play her best on the grass. Lisicki may have given her best and won but S. Williams did not play the way she did before she is somewhat distracted not totally focus as she has been always.
