Coco Gauff's Wimbledon run is over. The 15-year-old American lost to former No. 1 Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round.
Halep broke Gauff five times and took advantage of 29 unforced errors. Gauff saved two match points when serving at 5-2 but Halep clinched the win when the teenager sent a forehand wide in the next game.
Gauff was playing in her first Grand Slam tournament after becoming the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon's main draw in the professional era and knocked out five-time champion Venus Williams in the first round.
Halep reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the fourth time and will next face Zhang Shuai of China.
Serena Williams eased into the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the 14th time by beating Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-2 on No. 1 Court.
Williams won six straight games from 3-2 in the first set to take control of the match. She raised both arms in celebration after her fifth break of the match gave her a 5-2 lead in the second set and served out the victory when Suarez Navarro sent a backhand wide.
Williams is looking for her eighth Wimbledon title after losing last year's final to Angelique Kerber. She has never lost a set in seven career meetings against Suarez Navarro.
Williams will next face fellow American Alison Riske, who upset top-ranked Ash Barty earlier in the day.
Also, Barbora Strycova came from a set and break down to beat Elise Mertens 4-6, 7-5, 6-2. Mertens led 5-2 in the second set but lost nine straight games to go 4-0 down in the second.
