American Alison Riske upsets No. 1 seed Ashleigh Barty at Wimbledon

Australia's Ashleigh Barty is currently No. 1 in the women's world tennis rankings Tennis star Ash Barty is sneaking Disney lyrics into press conferences

Riske, the hottest grasscourt player in women's tennis, booked a showdown with seven-times champion Serena Williams with her seismic three-set fourth-round win over Barty on Monday.

Piling the pressure on Barty with sustained attack and measured forays to the net, Riske broke Barty twice to seize the second set to make a fool of her ranking of No.55 in the world.

Barty opened the match with four straight aces but landed only 40 percent of her first serves in the second set and was broken four times in total.

Alison Riske is the talk of the tennis world after sending Ash Barty crashing out of Wimbledon.

"The evening sooner than, I form of deliberate out what I used to be going to dispute, but I didn't mediate I would be on the winning end, to be attractive", Gauff acknowledged on NBC's "On the present time" on Tuesday about the moments following her magnificent first-spherical Wimbledon bewitch in opposition to Williams.

Federer became the oldest man to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal in 28 years when he booked his place in the last-eight for the 17th time.

"I think everyone is also getting better".

It's a long-standing injury that flared up during her busy European schedule in which she won her debut Grand Slam at the French Open, followed up with a win at Birmingham on grass.

Later on "Manic Monday", Williams, 15-year-old sensation Coco Gauff and the men's Big Three of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are on the schedule as Wimbledon resumes after its traditional day off.

Ashleigh Barty's singles journey at Wimbledon has come to a screeching halt.

"I'm so proud of myself for the way I handled this match", Riske told ESPN. "I think ultimately it just came down to being ready for a battle..."

Riske has never faced Williams in a singles match. Her groundstrokes winners were terrific - 30 to 15 unforced errors - and once she made her serve impenetrable, she was in control of the match.

During the tournament, she referenced "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King, "To infinity and beyond" from Toy Story and "I I think the seaweed is always greener in someone else's lake" from The Little Mermaid during responses to questions during press conferences at Wimbledon.

"I'm really, really happy I tried one more time, and also we won this year in the Australian Open doubles".

Ashleigh Barty crashed out of Wimbledon 2019 earlier today after losing her Round 4 fixture against Alison Riske. There wasn't too many 40-Love games at all, actually.

In the second round, she didn't face a seed but needed a marathon 9-7 third set to see off Serbia's Ivana Jorovic.

"Overall I didn't play a poor match".

"It is a tough one to swallow but I lost to a better player", said Barty.

Tuesday, she'll likely be on Centre Court at Wimbledon. When asked about her success over the past year, the player replied with Buzz Lightyear's famous catchphrase: "I chat to my niece".

"When her back is against the wall, she plays really well typically".

Halep next will face Zhang Shuai of China, a 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 victor over Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine. "I knew that if I did them better than 50%, I was probably going to come out on".
