Photos from Wimbledon: Day 7
Each day during Wimbledon, we'll bring you exclusive photography from Anita Aguilar, who is covering the tournament for TENNIS.com. Steve Tignor provides the captions.
Feliciano Lopez was aced 52 times by John Isner, but came back with 34 of his own in a four-set win.
Feli’s strategy with his return game—to guess which way Isner was going—worked in the end.
Donna Vekic joined Stan Wawrinka’s team...
...as they watched him beat Denis Istomin to make the fourth round.
The weather forecast in the morning was misleadingly good.
Clouds rolled in, and play was suspended twice.
Things are looking up again for Sabine Lisicki at Wimbledon. She beat Ana Ivanovic to reach the fourth round.
As Serena Williams predicted, Alizé Cornet fell to earth after beating her, in a loss to Genie Bouchard.
Even at polite Wimbledon, a man dressed as a daisy gets no love.
Bouchard can look rigid, but her game has proven versatile enough to put her to the semifinals of the French Open on clay, and the quarters here on grass.
Grigor Dimitrov made his first quarterfinal at Wimbledon, where he’ll take on Andy Murray.
Speaking of Muzzard, he was in fine fighting form in his win over Kevin Anderson. Murray has yet to drop a set.
But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to eat his racquet now and then...
...as well as his fist.
As usual, it took Jo-Wilfried Tsonga nearly three sets to reach lift-off against Novak Djokovic.
For a few minutes, at least, he had everything in working order.
“Whenever I stand up, it means, ‘Hit an ace.’”
Djokovic won in straight sets and moved into yet another Grand Slam quarterfinal, one round from a potential rematch of last year’s final against Andy Murray.
When Djokovic’s tennis career is over, he might want to consider becoming a revivalist preacher. You wouldn’t know it from this shot, but the crowd was rooting for Tsonga all night.
