LONDON: Highlights of day seven of the Wimbledon tennis championships on Monday (all times GMT):

1330 PLISKOVA ENDS SAMSONOVA STREAK

Eighth-seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova ended Liudmila Samsonova's 10-match unbeaten run on grass, beating the Russian wildcard 6-2 6-3 to reach her first Wimbledon quarter-final.

1155 SABALENKA SURVIVES RYBAKINA SCARE

Second seed Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus overcame a mid-match wobble to beat Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina 6-3 4-6 6-3 and reach her maiden Grand Slam quarter-final.

1150 JABEUR POWERS PAST SWIATEK

Tunisia's Ons Jabeur rallied from a set down to beat 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek 5-7 6-1 6-1. The 26-year-old becomes the first Arab player to make quarter-finals at Wimbledon since Egypt's Ismail El Shafei in 1974.

1005 PLAY GETS UNDERWAY

Play on the seventh day of Wimbledon began under cloudy skies, with the temperature hovering around 19 degrees Celsius (66 Fahrenheit).

The grasscourt Grand Slam's last "Manic Monday" began with seventh seed Iga Swiatek's fourth-round clash against Tunisia's Ons Jabeur on Court Two.

Men's top seed Novak Djokovic faces Chile's Cristian Garin on Centre Court later, while American teenager Coco Gauff and 20-times Grand Slam champion Roger Federer are also in action.
