Maria Sharapova endured her toughest match of the tournament so far at Wimbledon but still made it through to the quarter-finals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas on Monday. Sharapova had a nervy start against world number 34 Diyas and was 3-1 down in the second set but the 28-year-old's experience told and she looked delighted at the end. My opponent is a really good grasscourt player, stayed really low and hit so hard so I really had to be ready for all her shots," Sharapova said.
European stock markets retreated on Monday but losses were less sharp than feared after Greece rejected creditors' austerity demands in a weekend referendum. In afternoon deals, Frankfurt's DAX 30 shed 1.63 percent to 10,878.34 points and the CAC 40 in Paris fell 1.95 percent to 4,714.66 points. "Fear of the unknown, following the decisive Greek rejection of austerity, has seen global stock markets drop -- however the freefall that was predicted has not materialised," said Rebecca O'Keeffe, head of investment at stockbroker Interactive Investor.
