Ajla Tomljanovic reached her second straight Wimbledon quarter-final on Monday, beating French veteran Alize Cornet 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Both players struggled to win their service games in a match featuring 16 breaks of serve.

Cornet, who ended top seed Iga Switek's 37-match winning streak in the previous round, took the first set.

But Australia's Tomljanovic, ranked 44, levelled the match and broke four times in the decider to seal the win, setting up a quarter-final against Kazakhstan's Elena Rybakina. 

Cornet, ranked 37, was playing in her 62nd consecutive Grand Slam main draw, equaling Ai Sugiyama's record on the WTA women's tour.
