Angelique Kerber crashed out of Wimbledon and lost her hold on the world No. 1 ranking, while five-time champion Venus Williams became the oldest All England Club quarterfinalist in 23 years Monday.Amid a scheduling row that saw accusations of sexism aimed at Wimbledon chiefs after they put just two women's matches on the main showcourts, Williams wasn't the only star savoring a historic last-16 triumph. Muguruza, the 2015 Wimbledon runner-up, goes on to play Russian seventh-seed Svetlana Kuznetsova for a place in the semifinals.With Centre Court and Court 1 largely taken up by four men's matches, Kerber was exiled to the less grand Court 2 .Williams made her Grand Slam debut at the 1997 French Open, seven months before Konjuh was born.And at 37 years and 29 days, Venus is Wimbledon's oldest female quarterfinalist since Martina Navratilova in 1994 . Ostapenko, the 2014 junior Wimbledon champion, joined the sexism row as she admitted she was surprised not to be put on a larger court.
