Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybkina reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time with a straight-sets win over Petra Martic on Monday. The Russian-born 17th seed won 7-5, 6-3 and will face either Alize Cornet of France or Ajla Tomljanovic of Australia for a place in the semi-finals. Rybakina, who changed nationality in 2018, has made it to the last eight without losing a set. The 23-year-old will play in her second Grand Slam quarterfinal, having also reached the last eight at the French Open in 2021.
