MATCH OF THE DAY

Venus Williams (USA) [10] v Johanna Konta (GBR) [6]

Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus faces off against home hope Johanna Konta second on Centre.

Williams who is the oldest woman to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals for 23 years, and is aiming to win her eighth slam – nine years since she claimed her last.

Konta take on a first Wimbledon semi-final as she hopes to become the first British winner of the women’s title since Virginia Wade in 1977.

POTENTIAL UPSET OF THE DAY

Garbine Muguruza (ESP) [14] v Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK)

Rybarikova has been the sensation of the tournament. To put her achievement into context, she was 434 in the world April and is now one set away from a first Grand Slam final.

She has form for an upset having already beaten Karolína Pliskova and Coco Vandeweghe on her way to a maiden slam semi-final.

Standing in her way is 2015 runner-up and 2016 French Open winner Garbine Muguruza, who can be wildly inconsistent but dumped out Angelique Kerber in the round of 16.

Brace yourselves…

As well as Konta, Centre also plays host to a mixed doubles quarter-final that will see number one seeds Jamie Murray and Swiss Martina Hingis take on Brit duo Ken Skupski and Jocelyn Rae.
