Kaia Kanepi broke the hearts of locals at the Wimbledon tennis tournament, sending top Briton Laura Robson out of further contention.

The Estonian, ranked 46th at the beginning of the tournament, was made to sweat, but won in straight sets 7:6, 7:5.

Robinson had the better serves, but Kanepi had the tenacious attack in a match where no player led by more than one game at any time before the end.

Kanepi's opponent in the quarterfinals will be Sabine Lisicki, who upset world #1 Serena Williams in the opposite bracket.
