LONDON (AP) — The Latest from Wimbledon (all times local):

With Madison Keys and CoCo Vandeweghe also winning Monday, it’s the first time three American women have reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals since Serena, Lindsay Davenport and Jennifer Capriati did it in 2004.
Richard Gasquet wasn’t happy about wasting two match points against Nick Kyrgios, smashing his racket in anger after dropping the third set of their fourth-round match.

Gasquet leads 7-5, 6-1, 6-7 (7) on Court 2.
