In 1997 and 2014 there were five women who were first-time quarter-finalists but this is now an Open Era record.
The men’s record (six) was also equalled after Felix Auger-Aliassime, Karen Khachanov, Marton Fucsovics, Matteo Berrettini and Denis Shapovalov all advancing, with one of Daniil Medvedev and Hubert Hurkacz – who have to finish their match on Tuesday – also set to be a first-time quarter-finalist. The same total was also hit in 1991, and 2002.
Wimbledon quarter-finals line-up
Djokovic vs Fucsovics Shapovalov vs Khachanov Berrettini vs Auger-Aliassime Federer vs Medvedev/Hurkacz
Barty vs Tomljanovic Muchova vs Kerber Golubic vs Pliskova Sabalenka vs Jabeur
In total, the previous record across both draws stood at 10 – with five men and five women both becoming first-time quarter-finalists in 2014. A record 12 have progressed this year.
There will be five full first-time quarter-finalist match-ups.
Canadian 10th seed Shapovalov – who knocked out Andy Murray in the third round – takes on Russia’s Khachanov, while Italian Queen’s champion Berrettini faces Auger-Aliassime/Zverev in the men’s draw.
World No. 1 Barty meets fellow Aussie Tomljanovic, while Golubic-Pliskova and Sabalenka-Jabeur are also first-time quarter-finalists.
There are a few old hands left in the draw, Roger Federer – who faces either Medvedev or Hurkacz – and Novak Djokovic, who takes on Hungarian surprise package Fucsovics, have won the title 13 times between them, while Angelique Kerber – who meets Czech Karolina Muchova – is also a former Wimbledon winner.
