WTA 250 Tour events in Birmingham and Berlin have reached the last eight stage after an intriguing second week of the grass court swing.

Following this week’s events, many players will converge on Eastbourne for the WTA 500 event and the traditional precursor to Wimbledon.

Eastbourne is set to witness the blockbuster return to the WTA Tour of Serena Williams.

However, before we can get to that there are titles to be won on the grass courts of Birmingham and Berlin.

Rothesay Classic Birmingham

The final round of 16 match between Beatriz Haddad Maia and Magdalena Fręch needs to be squeezed into the schedule but action on the Ann Jones Court gets underway at 11:00 (BST).

Fręch holds a 4-2 lead in the decisive set with the winner set to go into a quarter-final against Italy’s Camila Giorgi.

In the first last eight match Croatia’s Donna Vekić meets Romania’s Sorana Cîrstea.

Crowd favourite Dayana Yastremska takes on eighth seed Zhang Shuai in the match that follows.

Katie Boulter is the lone Brit remaining in the Birmingham field and will do well to get beyond a resurgent Simona Halep who was handed a second seeding for the Rothesay Classic.
