Tomljanovic beats Alize Cornet to reach quarter-finals

by Kolkata Today

It’s back-to-back Wimbledon quarter-finals for Ajla Tomljanovic.The Aussie fights from a set down against Alize Cornet to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Ajla Tomljanovic becomes the first Australian woman to reach back-to-back Wimbledon quarter-finals since Jelena Dokic in 1999-00.

Overcome with emotion after reeling in Cornet, who had ended the 37-match winning streak of world No.1 Iga Swiatek on Saturday, Tomljanovic said her own belief was tested early on in their encounter.


“I didn’t think I could do it,” she said.
“From the get-go her level was really high. She never goes away. It is tough to play against players like that.”

“I have such great memories of last year … but I look back and I didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have. I can’t believe one year later I’m in the same position,” Tomljanovic said.

After last year playing Ash, I think I can face anyone (now). Hopefully it’s going to be a bit more of a contest,” she said.
