Ferrer and Verdasco into Wimbledon quarter-finals
03 July 2013 @ 00:25

Spain's David Ferrer and Fernando Verdasco are both through to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, but Carla Suárez Navarro was beaten in straight sets by Petra Kvitova.

No.4 seed David Ferrer beat Croatia's Ivan Dodig 6-7, 7-6, 6-1, 6-1 to book his place in the quarter-finals for the second year in a row. Javea-born Ferrer squandered eight break points  in the first set, but gained in confidence after winning the second set and raced through the third and fourth sets.

An ankle injury sustained in the first round is causing Spain's top-ranked player some discomfort, but he has insisted in playing through the pain. Next up is the No. 8 seed Juan Martín del Potro, against whom Ferrer has a good record.
