Wimbledon Day 7 - Barty, Pliskova Crash; Konta Through; Federer, Nadal, Djokovic Stroll

Manic Monday came and went with all of the main drama in the women's draw, so when Simon Briggs joined The Tennis Podcast team to look back, there was plenty to get his seeth stuck into.

Ash Barty and Karolina Pliskova, two of the favourites for the title, crashed out. Which was the bigger surprise, and how did Alison Riske and Karolina Muchova win over Barty and Pliskova respectively?

Where does that leave Jo Konta and Serena Williams, who were both victorious on Monday? Will Serena win her 24th Slam? Can Konta go all the way? Briggs thinks she can, and will.

On the men's side, it was a walk in the park for Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Guido Pella continued to do himself proud, but can any of the players left get in the way of the big 3 in a meaningful sense?
