switching between Van Uytvanck-Kasatina and Kerber-Bencic all the time....

Too bad that they are in action at the same time.

Looks not so good for Kasatkina, but Alison playing really well; that win vs Muguruza in R2 was not a accident (and she pushe Darya to three in Eastbourne while being ill)...

Bencic at the same time tries to survive: 6-3 3-1 down, burtnow serving for the second set....

Whoever wins in these matches, they winners play each other in the QF and that will be a good match for sure.

How the players' box can kill their own player:

Bencic serves out, is not going to challenge but the reaction of her box makes her challenge anyway.. ball was out indeed so she loses her last challenge.

Minutes later, Kerber hits the line (as we could see later), but Bencic wants to challenge... but can't... totally frustrated, she gets broken (after having four set points in that game)...

Now she would not have won that point with a challenge, but at least she would have stayed calm. In the end, it was deuce when she started to lose it.

Is Cibulkova heading to the finals? Yikes! That would be super awkward if Serena makes it too.

The seeding of Serena sure makes even more sense now that all top 10 are out. I don;t however see Vee's demise as I do the others. That's an outlier for sure, a fluke result.

Kerber takes the TB and the match...

But this was a good Bencic: If she stays injury-free, Belina will be in the top20 in no time.

Kasatkina leveled in her match: 1-1 in sets.

Wimbledon so-called 'live' broadcast shows Serena warming up though the score says she's up 3-0.

Despite the score, Ree still looks unsteady in her movements and strokes. I've seen quite a few awkward shots. Maybe it's the grass (Rafa complained that) or the wind.
