Austrian Tamira Paszek was the first woman to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon on Monday as she claimed an impressive victory over Roberta Vinci.

Champion at Eastbourne in the week leading up to Wimbledon, the 21-year-old has kept her form together and had too much for Italian 21st seed Vinci, posting a 6-2 6-2 success.

Unseeded Paszek has reached a second successive Wimbledon quarter-final. She was beaten last year by Victoria Azarenka, who was preparing to take on Ana Ivanovic for the right to play Paszek again.

This win was her ninth in a row on grass.
