Ostapenko into Wimbledon quarter-finals

LONDON: Former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko swept into her second Wimbledon quarter-final with a 7-6 (7/4), 6-0 win against Belarusian world number 50 Aliaksandra Sasnovich on Monday.

Latvian 12th seed Ostapenko came from 2-5 down in the first set to finish off Sasnovich, who had stunned two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in the first round.

Ostapenko takes on Slovakian world number 33 Dominika Cibulkova or Taiwanese world number 48 Hsieh Su-Wei for a place in the semi-finals.

The 21-year-old also made the last eight at Wimbledon in 2017, just weeks after winning her maiden Grand Slam title in Paris.
