Wimbledon: Madison Keys halts Mirra Andreeva's dream run to enter quarterfinals

This was Keys’ second Wimbledon quarterfinal. She previously made the last eight at the grass-court major in 2015.

The 16-year-old Andreeva had been bidding to become the youngest Wimbledon quarterfinalist since Anna Kournikova in 1997.

She came within five points of this achievement when she held a point to lead 5-1 in the second set, only for Keys to escape with a backhand winner that would turn her fortunes around.

However, No.102-ranked Andreeva is still guaranteed to break into the Top 100 for the first time after competing in just four tour-level events.
