Now Switzerland is out of the football, Swiss sports fans are turning their attention to an up-and-coming new tennis star.

28-year-old Viktorija Golubic from Zurich is through to the quarter finals at Wimbledon after beating the 23rd seed Madison Keys from the United States. 

It’s the furthest she’s advanced in a Grand Slam. 

Later today, she’ll face a tough test against eighth seed Karolina Pliskova – who so far has won all her games in straight sets. 

But Golubic has beaten Pliskova before – in the Fed cup in 2016. 

They meet at 2 o’clock this afternoon.
