But the 20-year-old Latvian broke back in the second set and pushed the score to 5-5. A few unforced errors later, though, and Williams broke again for a 6-5 lead before serving out the match.Williams ended up with eight aces and only 13 winners. Ostapenko had one ace and 20 winners.In the first match, Djokovic was up a break in the third set when he asked for a medical timeout and a trainer examined and stretched his right shoulder. The second-seeded Serb appeared to grimace in pain a couple of times as his shoulder was being checked.“It’s been something that I’ve been dragging back and forth for a while now,” Djokovic said. “But I’m still managing to play, which is the most important thing.”Djokovic was broken only once, in the second set. But the 12-time major champion, who won the Wimbledon title in 2011, ’14 and ’15, broke Mannarino early in the third and advanced to the quarterfinals at the All England Club for the ninth time.ADVERTISEMENT Perpetual girls star Solomon commits to NU Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Venus Williams of the United States celebrates after beating Latvia’s Jelena Ostapenko at the end of their Women’s Quarterfinal Singles Match on day eight at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Tuesday, July 11, 2017.
