The Coco bubble pops at Wimbledon as Simona Halep ousts Cori Gauff

The Coco bubble pops at Wimbledon as Simona Halep ousts Cori Gauff”

Gauff had beaten Venus Williams, Magdalena Rybarikova and Polona Hercog on her way to the last 16.

"It really depends. I think she's definitely on a different level, so I think she's totally capable and ready, to be honest". "I had to take it to Ash".

"I'd be like, that's insane", she said.

Williams will play Barty in the last eight if both come through Monday's matches.

Halep broke Gauff five times and took advantage of 29 unforced errors. Riske advanced to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career and defeated a top 5 ranked opponent for only the third time. I just couldn't feel more proud. In an interview with "GMA", Gauff's parents credited Venus and her sister Serena Williams for paving the way.

Gauff also caused some conversation with her entrance in the mixed doubles Wimbledon tournament, when Brit Jay Clarke left original partner Harriet Dart to instead play with Gauff at the last minute. "It's been an arduous year for me", she told ESPN.

"I don't know my schedule right now because I wasn't expecting to be here, but my next goal would be to win the next tournament I play".

Here's everything you need to know to keep up with the action. But as always, the real money for Gauff won't come from her prize winnings or the sport's performance bonuses (as lucrative as they may be), but from product endorsements.

The round of 16 starts at 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. ET) for the women's tournaments, while the men's tournament gets underway at 12:15 p.m. local time (7:15 a.m. ET).

Seven-time champion Serena Williams believes her teenage compatriot could go the whole way.

Fans can watch the action online via the WatchESPN app and on ESPN.com.

Monday's other ties see 2017 semi-finalist Sam Querrey face last-16 debutant and United States compatriot Tennys Sandgren.

At deuce, Gauff's zipped cross court backhand - maybe the most potent shot in her arsenal - was called wide by the lines person but overruled by Keothavong. Number six seed and 2014 victor Petra Kvitova takes on Britain's Johanna Konta on Centre Court, while Barbora Strycova faces number 21 seed Elise Mertens.

Williams, who lost to Angelique Kerber in last year's Wimbledon final, will next face Alison Riske, an unseeded American who upset top-ranked Ash Barty.
