Amanda Anisimova, the French Open runner-up, faced a tough exit at Wimbledon as she retired due to a leg injury, allowing Jasmine Paolini to reach her first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Keys, who had a chance to close out the match at 5-2 in the third set, started experiencing discomfort in her left leg, eventually leading to a medical timeout at 5-4.

The Italian, Paolini, took the first set 6-3, only to be countered by Keys winning the second set in a tiebreak at 7-6 (6).

Despite being two points away from victory, Keys’ injury forced her to retire at 5-5 in the third set, with a visibly restricted movement on court.

In a gracious response, Paolini expressed mixed emotions about the win, acknowledging the competitive nature of the match while feeling sympathy for Keys’ unfortunate situation.

Paolini becomes the fifth Italian woman in the professional era to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals and aims to be the first to secure a semifinal spot.

Donna Vekic secured her first Wimbledon quarterfinal appearance by overcoming Paula Badosa in a challenging match disrupted by rain delays on Court No. 2.

Vekic’s victory sets up an exciting quarterfinal clash at the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.
