Rising South African tennis player Isabella Kruger has continued her fine form to reach the quarter-finals of the Junior Wimbledon Championships.
The 17-year-old qualifier beat British wild card Mingge Xu 6-4, 6-3 on Wednesday to book her spot in the last eight of the Girls' Singles.
Xu, who is 14, hit more winners than Kruger - 15 compared to 5 - but made 33 unforced errors compared to Kruger's meagre 11.
Kruger will next play Canadian fifth seed Victoria Mboko, who beat Poland's Olivia Lincer 6-0, 6-7 (8/10), 6-4.
Earlier in the tournament, Kruger upset fourth seed Nikola Daubnerova of Slovakia 6-4, 6-7 (4/7), 6-2 in the second round and America's Sonya Macavei 7-5, 5-7, 6-2 in the first round.
Kruger has an older sister, Zoe (19), who is also a professional tennis player.
Their father was former Springbok rugby player Ruben Kruger.
Ruben Kruger, who was part of the victorious Springbok team that won the 1995 Rugby World Cup, died in 2010 after battling brain cancer. He was 39.
