Niemeier - Maria, 5-6:

This is Wimbledon quarterfinals!

Niemeier has a break ball, but gives it carelessly.

Girls, what are you doing there!

Standing ovation after a stunning rally.

Crazy.

In the end, Maria fends off the breakball and takes a 6:5 lead.

Niemeier - Maria, 5-5:

Niemeier really lights up Court 1!

After the 5:5, she animated the fans and applauded loudly!

Is it cool here!

Niemeier - Maria, 4-5:

That's strong!

The forehand slice comes in, the serve and volley works - Maria is strong as a bear right now!

Three games in a row for the 34-year-old, who now leads 5-4.

However, Neimeier now opens.

Niemeier - Maria, 4-4:

Niemeier has three breakballs against him - and then unnecessarily puts a backhand volley out!

Maria ia back in the game!

Niemeier - Maria, 4-3:

Maria won't be defeated!

Some very wild rallies again, but in the end the 34-year-old wins the game.

Very important to her.

Niemeier - Maria, 4-2:

It goes back and forth!

Now Niemeier has the better hand and stronger nerves and gets the game.

But Maria is by no means inferior here.

It's just great tennis - from both women!

Hats off!

Niemeier - Maria, 3-2:

Break chance Jule Niemeier at 30:40 from Maria's point of view - and the 34-year-old plays the slice a bit too long.

Break for Niemeier!

Niemeier - Maria, 2-2:

Here comes the Niemeier scream!

Actually, the 22-year-old is rather calm, but after a bit of referee chaos, Niemeier gets the point with a brilliant volley - and in the end the game too.

What is the big tennis here!

Niemeier - Maria, 1-2:

Maria is on fire here!

The 34-year-old is fully in the game and looks super stable.

It all looks very, very good.

Niemeier - Maria, 1-1:

It's okay!

Niemeier gets her serve through and calms the nerves.

However, despite everything, the momentum is currently working on Maria's side.

But who knows, as is well known, everything can happen very quickly in tennis.

Niemeier - Maria, 0-1:

This time without losing a serve!

Maria takes the first game in the 3rd set and shows that she is still there.

Now youngster Niemeier is under a bit of pressure.

Niemeier - Maria, 0-0:

We are excited to see what the final set has to offer!

It almost can't get any better.

Wow, this Maria is strong in the second sentence!

Niemeier is paying a little lesson here.

Even if it's still highly entertaining.

Niemeier - Maria, 2-4:

It's okay!

Niemeier finds back to her strengths and wins the first after four games without a win.

It's just a break.

Niemeier - Maria, 1-4:

Maria had two balls on her own serve, Niemeier was on the ropes.

But the youngster is coming back with great class.

But in the end she gets the game.

Niemeier - Maria, 1-3:

Bitter!

The double fault at Niemeier could still lead to problems, it is already in the double digits.

Now Maria gets the second break - and suddenly the 22-year-old is under pressure.

Niemeier - Maria, 1-2:

So, now the first lady serves through!

Maria submits in the 2nd sentence!

Niemeier - Maria, 1-1:

But unlike in the first set, Maria immediately manages the rebreak.

But the youngster can convert the third and gets the break right at the start of the 2nd set.

Maria opens the second set again.

Is it going better this time than at the beginning of the game, where the 34-year-old conceded the first break?

Niemeier - Maria, 5-4:

Not so easy with Maria!

The 34-year-old gets her serve through without any problems and takes the game with an outstanding stop.

But now Niemeier serves to win the set...

Niemeier - Maria, 5-3:

Jule Niemeier also gets through the next serve and comes a big step closer to winning the first set!

Hopefully the match goes a little longer, as entertaining as it is so far.

Niemeier - Maria, 4-3:

Again: So this is really partly spectacular tennis, what Niemeier and Maria show here.

The youngster could actually dominate the game here, but Niemeier still make a little too many unforced errors.

And so Maria comes up again.

Niemeier - Maria, 4-2:

Neimeier serves again and stays a break ahead of Maria.

Niemeier - Maria, 3-2:

So far it's been a really, really good tennis match between the two of them here.

It's really fun to watch!

Maria shortens and seems to have caught herself.

Niemeier - Maria, 3-1:

Four double errors already by Niemeier, which is actually too much.

However, their risk is also rewarded because their attacks on the network have all worked so far.

So the 22-year-old gets the third game.

Niemeier - Maria, 2-1:

The third game is the first at eye level because Maria's slice is better now.

But above all, the first serve from her has an effect.

Nevertheless, there were three times the Einsatnd - but in the end Maria gets the first point.

Important for you!

Niemeier - Maria, 2-0:

The experienced Maria is not yet able to cope with the force of Niemeier.

Maria's dreaded slice balls don't come into their own in the first two games either.

Strong performance so far from Niemeier!

Niemeier - Maria, 1-0:

Dream start for the 22-year-old!

Niemeier immediately succeeds in breaking.

That's how you can start a fourth-final in Wimbledon.

Niemeier - Maria, 0-0:

It starts in the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

Maria serves at the beginning.

Update from July 5, 2:09 p.m.:

“It’s her first Wimbledon, her first Grand Slam,” says Christopher Kas, Jule Niemeier’s coach: “What should happen to her today?” It’s about to start!

Update from July 5, 2:01 p.m .:

In the meantime it has already cleared up in London and the sun is shining.

Update from July 5, 1:28 p.m .:

Court 1 will be served in just over half an hour.

Then Julie Niemeier and Tatjana Maria fight for entry into the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

The weather in London now?

Gray but no rain.

Let's hope it stays that way.

First report from July 5:

Munich / London – Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier want to refine the greatest success of their tennis career so far.

The two tournament surprises will meet for the first time in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

The game promises excitement!

Maria, 34 years old, ten Wimbledon participations, mother of two against Niemeier, 22 years old, who is at the grass classic for the first time.

Despite all the differences before the big German duel, the two surprise players of the tournament have one feeling in common.

"Being in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon is the same for her as it is for me," said Maria before the game on Tuesday (2 p.m.): "It's fantastic."

Wimbledon today in the live ticker: Small disappointment before the quarterfinals between Niemeier and Maria

For both of them, getting into the top eight in a Grand Slam tournament means the greatest success of their careers.

However, there was a small initial disappointment in the run-up: The game will take place first of the day on Court 1, the second largest square in the facility - and not on Center Court. That was the result of the fixtures on Monday.

Both players have already won once on this course during the tournament: 22-year-old Niemeier in the second round against world number three Anett Kontaveit from Estonia, twelve years older Maria in the round of 16 against Jelena Ostapenko from Latvia.

Only for the fifth time in the professional era are two German players in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

The top seeded defending champion Novak Djokovic from Serbia and Jannik Sinner from Italy will start on the center court on Tuesday (2.30 p.m.).

Afterwards there will be the second women's quarter-final between Marie Bouzková and Ons Jabeur.
