Angelique Kerber of Germany hits a return during her women's singles tennis match against Maria Sharapova of Russia at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London July 1, 2014.
Sharapova’s dream of a second Wimbledon title turned into a nightmare exit after 49 unforced errors—19 coming in the crucial third and final set. Kerber was simply steadier in this match with a total of 11 unforced errors.
Sharapova won the Grand Slam in London in 2004 but has never advanced past the fourth round three years in a row now.
Kerber returns to the quarterfinals in Wimby for the first time since her semis appearance in 2012. The 26-year-old German faces up-and-comer Eugenie Bouchard of Canada in the next round.
