This Is Wiltshire: Tamira Paszek is through to the last eight at Wimbledon Tamira Paszek is through to the last eight at Wimbledon

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.
