With a great energy performance, Tatjana Maria managed the next surprise at the grass classic in Wimbledon and reached the quarter-finals for the first time.

The 34-year-old defeated number 12 Jelena Ostapenko on Sunday 5: 7, 7: 5, 7: 5 and now meets Jule Niemeier or Brit Heather Watson.

In the second set, Maria fended off two match balls and after 2:07 hours got the greatest success of her tennis career.

Only 15 months after the birth of her second daughter Cecilia, she is in the top eight in a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career.

Maria received the equivalent of 360,000 euros for this.
