The latest news from Wimbledon (all local times):

9:20 p.m.

Ajla Tomljanovic reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final at Wimbledon when British teenager Emma Raducanu had to stop playing after a medical time out in the second set.

It was not immediately clear what Raducanu’s health problem was. She received a visit from a coach on the pitch, then they left for the locker room. Shortly after, the chair umpire announced that Raducanu could not continue.

Tomljanovic, 75, was leading 6-4, 3-0 when the game ended under the closed roof of Court No.1.

“I’m actually really shocked and it’s obviously so bittersweet because Emma has to be really, really hurt if she makes the decision to retire,” said Tomljanovic.

She will face No.1 Ash Barty in an all-Australian quarter-final on Tuesday.

Raducanu is an 18-year-old girl ranked 338th who received a generic invitation from the All England Club so that she could make her Grand Slam debut and only participate in her second tour-level event.

Roger Federer became the oldest man in the Open era to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, beating Lorenzo Sonego in straight sets.

The eight-time Wimbledon champion needed two attempts to serve the first set but never looked threatened after that, winning 7-5, 6-4, 6-2 on center court.

Federer, 39, broke the age record for quarterfinals held by Ken Rosewall, who was also 39 when he reached the last eight in 1974.

It is the 18th time that Federer has come this far at the All England Club, thus extending his own record.

Felix Auger-Aliassime defeated No. 4 seed Alexander Zverev at Wimbledon to give Canada two male quarter-finalists in a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.

Auger-Aliassime resisted a Zverev comeback attempt to win 6-4, 7-6 (6), 3-6, 3-6, 6-4 and claim what he called “surely the best victory of my life”. The match ended under a closed roof on Court No.1 after a brief delay of rain at the start of the fifth set.

Auger-Aliassime reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time and joined compatriot Denis Shapovalov in the last eight.

Zverev struggled with his serve throughout and finished with 20 double faults.

Auger-Aliassime will then face Matteo Berrettini.

Forty years and one day after his famous father played his last match at Wimbledon, Leo Borg made his winning debut at the All England Club.

The son of five-time Swedish champion Bjorn Borg won his opener in the junior boys tournament, beating Serbian Marko Topo 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-0.

Leo, 18, sports the same long blonde hair and Fila clothes as his father and naturally gained media attention when he first appeared at the All England Club.

“I know my dad played here so many times and won the title,” said Leo Borg. “So it was very special to go out and feel that maybe one day I would make it, like my dad.”

He said his dad gave him some advice before the game: “He just said good luck and have fun on the pitch. Because it’s always special to play at Wimbledon. Have fun.”

Bjorn Borg lost to John McEnroe in an epic final in 1981, having won the tournament the previous five years.

Coco Gauff’s Wimbledon race ended again in the fourth round.

The 17-year-old American lost to former Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-4 on center court.

This is the second time she has lost at this point after her breakthrough at the All England Club in 2019.

Kerber dominated Gauff in key moments, converting four of the five breakpoints she created and saving four of the six she faced.

Kerber won Wimbledon in 2018 and is the only former champion in the women’s table.

Fucsovics was eliminated by Rublev in four consecutive tournaments earlier this season, including an injury strike, and also lost to him at Roland Garros last year.

He became the first Hungarian since 1981 to reach the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament and the first since Jozsef Asboth in 1948 to do so at Wimbledon.

The two-time defending Wimbledon champion reached his 50th Grand Slam quarter-final by beating Chile’s Christian Garin 6-2, 6-4, 6-2. The top-ranked Serbian lost just three points on his first serve in the game and saved the only two break points he faced.

Djokovic reached his 12th quarter-final at Wimbledon and is seeking a sixth All England Club title and a record 20th Grand Slam trophy.

Garin was playing on center court for the first time and was shattered five times.

Korda was celebrating his 21st birthday and was the youngest American to reach the round of 16 at the All England Club since Andy Roddick reached the semifinals in 2003.

He is the son of 1998 Australian Open champion Petr Korda and brother of golfer Nelly Korda, who won the PGA Women’s Championship in June. Her other sister Jessica Korda is also a professional golfer.

Berrettini won the Queen’s Club turf tournament last month and has lost just one set so far at Wimbledon. He is the first Italian to reach the quarterfinals of the All England Club since Davide Sanguinetti in 1998.
