Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal reaches last 8; Ashley Barty out

Australia’s world number one Ashleigh Barty has been knocked out of Wimbledon, losing her fourth-round match against American Alison Riske. World number 55 Riske fought back from a set down to win 3-6 6-2 6-3 in one hour 36 minutes on court two to reach a first Grand Slam quarter-final. French Open champion Barty had not dropped a set at the tournament.

Third seed Rafael Nadal continued to breeze through the Wimbledon draw with a sharp three-set victory over Portugal’s Joao Sousa in the last 16. The 33-year-old Spaniard, only tested so far by second-round opponent Nick Kyrgios, eased to a 6-2 6-2 6-2 win.

Cori Gauff’s remarkable fairytale run at Wimbledon came to an end with a straight-set defeat by former world number one Simona Halep. Seventh seed Halep beat the 15-year-old American qualifier 6-3 6-3 to advance to the quarter-finals, where she will play China’s Zhang Shuai.
