Photos from Wimbledon: Day 8
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.
The stars have taken up residence inside the stadiums, but the grounds were still humming outside them on Tuesday.
A sunny day in London was reason enough to celebrate.
Jamie Murray, left, and John Peers were so stunned by its light they had to play in shades.
Mike and Bob Bryan brought their mirror-image act to the side courts.
Simona Halep has been skipping unobtrusively through the draw.
I told you Yaroslava Shvedova comes in disguise. On Tuesday, she went with an old-school serve-and-volleyer look as she went down to defeat against Sabine Lisicki.
Angelique Kerber will try anything...
...to get the ball back over the net.
This may be Maria Sharapova’s least-favorite shot, but her back-scratch position didn’t look too bad here.
Sharapova got louder, and her game got better, as she went. But it wasn’t good enough against Kerber.
Roger Federer follows through, and then some.
Federer blew past Tommy Robredo to reach the quarterfinals.
This Rafa fan wondered what was up with his man.
“I think I didn’t play really bad,” Nadal said.
And he was only broken once all day.
But it wasn’t enough to catch up to 19-year-old Nick Kyrgios.
Kyrgios said “I didn’t know what to do,” when he won.
Nadal left Wimbledon without reaching the quarterfinals for the third straight year.
Kyrgios left as the game’s newest star.
Each took a moment with the fans afterward.
