Johanna Konta and Andy Murray make history with different approaches

Andy Murray was happy to share the spotlight with Johanna Konta last night as the pair won through to the Wimbledon quarter-finals - the first time Britain has been represented in the last eight of both singles competitions for 44 years.

Wimbledon defended shunting top women players onto the outside courts on "Manic Monday", saying the big four of men's tennis were the marquee matches demanded by broadcasters and spectators. There are no real weak spots on his armour, as you can expect from the world number 1, save for his weak second delivery.

Murray has dropped just one set on his way to the last eight, where American 24th seed Sam Querrey awaits. "It's about who are the star players at the time". "I felt scared. I'm like, 'Are they going to come just because of steak?'"

Eighteen-time Grand Slam champion Chris Evert called for a discussion on the scheduling. I'm going to try to do that.

Federer bidding for a record eighth Wimbledon title faces Grigor Dimitrov boasting a 5-0 record over the man once tipped as his natural heir.

Play is likely to be disrupted on Tuesday as a cloudy and rainy day is forecast throughout the day.

This is the tournament, and Centre Court is the place, where I've played my best tennis, and I guess that consistency proves it.

First, Federer returned from missing the last half of 2016 while letting his surgically repaired left knee heal and has been as impressive as he's been in quite some time.

The world number one did not have it all his own way against the Frenchman, but he did enough to come through by a 7-6 6-4 6-4 scoreline.

At one stage in the first set, play stopped as Mladenovic and Riske discussed the state of the turf with supervisor Pam Whytcross. The talented Fabio Fognini refused to let Murray have it easy. He's got one of the best backhands and he can play every shot. The victory vaults Querrey, who toppled then No. 1 Novak Djokovic a year ago, into his second straight Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Victoria Azarenka, bidding to become the first mother to win Wimbledon in 37 years, faces Romanian second seed Simona Halep. "It's not just about this tournament but over the last 18 months or two years".

In all, the women's last-16 features seven Grand Slam winners and seven playing in the Wimbledon fourth round for the first time.

Second seed Djokovic overcame a rusty beginning against the unpredictable Ernests Gulbis 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 on Saturday to set up a fourth-round encounter against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino. She won the third set and kept alive her hopes of becoming the first British woman to win the Wimbledon title since Virginia Wade in 1977.

Over on court three it's Agnieszka Radwanska v Svetlana Kuznetsova, while court 12 hosts French Open champ Jelena Ostapenko against Elina Svitolina. His opinion is shared it seems by plenty of other tennis players. No. 14 Garbine Muguruza in a meeting of the past two runners-up, two-time major champion Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 5 Caroline Wozniacki vs.

The ladies event, in stark contrast, still has a much more open feel and if Venus Williams can not become champion for a sixth time - and she would have to be by some distance the oldest in modern times at 37 to do so - then it's extremely hard to identify an obvious first-time victor.
