Stats Corner: Brits In Wimbledon QFs
Laura Robson

LONDON, England - Brits often reached the later stages of Wimbledon in the early days of the Open Era. However, it had been quite a drought for them in recent decades. That is, until now with Laura Robson single-handedly doing her part to bring back British glory at the All-England Club.

Robson's defeat of Marina Erakovic on Saturday made her the first Brit to advance to the fourth round here since Samantha Smith in 1998. If she can win her match against Kaia Kanepi on Monday, she would be Wimbledon's first British quarterfinalist since 1984. Here is a list of all Brits who have at least gotten that far in the Open Era:

Year Player Round
1968 Ann Jones SF
1969 Ann Jones W
1970 Winnie Shaw QF
1971 Winnie Shaw QF
1972 Virginia Wade QF
1973 Virginia Wade QF
1974 Virginia Wade SF
1975 Virginia Wade QF
1976 Sue Barker QF
