Johanna Konta enjoys rarified air of Wimbledon's last eight

Murray and Konta geared up for fourth round at Wimbledon

Wimbledon 2017: Into the finishing straight

Johanna Konta became the first British woman in 33 years to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals after a three-set victory over Caroline Garcia.

There was very little between the two players as Garcia, ranked No21 in the world, matched Konta's impressive power in rallies and on serve throughout.

From there the contest was evenly matched between two powerful hitters, but Konta just lost her grip when she was serving for the set at 5-4 up.

Although she has reached the semifinals at Wimbledon in the past, Halep has a hard matchup on Monday at the Grand Slam.

Police and law enforcement agencies have surrounded the area to trace the miscreants involved in the terrorist attack. Security officials have cordoned off the site of the blast, even as reports suggest that some firing could be heard.

"It's very exciting", Konta said in her postmatch press conference.

But ultimately it was the French star who gaffed at the worst time for Konta to prevail and set up a clash tomorrow with either Simone Halep or Victoria Azarenka. "I'll have the public against me as you'd expect so I'll have to be ready".

Konta had previously won only one match in five Wimbledon appearances but now suddenly finds herself with a realistic chance of winning it and becoming the first home champion since Virginia Wade 40 years ago.

Garcia had beaten Konta, also in three sets, at Indian Wells in March but she is yet to beat a top-10 player at a grand slam and this time it was Konta's serve, and nerve, that came up trumps.

Pacers sign-and-trade CJ Miles for Cory Joseph
While the 2018 first rounder is lottery protected, there's every reason to believe Toronto will make the playoffs in 2017-18. He started 72 regular season games for the Raptors last season and averaged 8.9 points, 3.8 boards, and shot 34% from three.

Whoever makes the final will have a really good chance at the title, but the survivor of the bottom half will have endured bigger tests on the road to the final, and will therefore be more likely to play at a high level and not be intimidated once the final comes along on Saturday, July 15.

The former number 1, bidding to clinch her 29th top 5 win, the first since 2016 Miami, barely avoided the bagel before saving a match point and breaking to 2-5 with a clean volley, her 20th victor of the match.

"When I was a little girl, and even now, I dreamt of being in these battles and on the big stages". I'm playing against an incredibly tough opponent and that's all I've got my mind on. "I just want to go there and to win it".

"I approach pressure in a very self-imposed way. That's the approach and the effort I put into every single match that I play".
