Stosur and Ebden charge into Wimbledon mixed doubles semifinals
Australian duo Sam Stosur and Matt Ebden have advanced to the Wimbledon 2022 mixed doubles semifinals.
Sam Stosur and Matt Ebden are through to the semifinals in the Wimbledon 2022 mixed doubles competition.
The Australian duo scored a comprehensive 6-3 6-1 victory against British wildcards Alicia Barnett and Jonny O’Mara in quarterfinal action today.
Stosur and Ebden produced a strong serving display, conceding only 13 points on serve in the 70-minute encounter.
This extends 34-year-old Ebden’s career-best run in a Wimbledon mixed doubles draw and for 38-year-old Stosur, marks her first semifinal appearance at the All England Club in eight years.
World No.31 Ebden becomes the 27th Australian man to reach a Wimbledon mixed doubles semifinal in the Open era – and only the second in the past decade.
Stosur, meanwhile, reaffirms her status as an all-time Aussie great. The world No.11 becomes only the fifth Australian woman to advance to three Wimbledon mixed doubles semifinals, joining the elite company of Margaret Court, Judy Dalton, Wendy Turnbull and Liz Smylie.

Key: Bold = Title-winning run
Stosur has gone to win the title on the two previous times she advanced to the Wimbledon mixed doubles semifinals, a promising sign ahead of a final-four showdown with American combination Coco Gauff and Jack Sock.
In ladies’ doubles action, Ellen Perez’s career-best Grand Slam run ended in the quarterfinals.
Perez and American partner Nicole Melichar-Martinez made a promising start against Wimbledon 2018 champions Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova, building a 6-1 4-2 lead. However, the second-seeded Czechs fought back to record a 1-6 7-6(2) 6-2 victory.
