Stosur knocked out in Nottingham

Australa's former US Open champion Sam Stosur was knocked out of the WTA Wimbledon warm-up event in Nottingham on Thursday after suffering a straight sets defeat by Britain's Katie Boulter.

The British No 4 reached her first WTA quarterfinal with a 7-6 (8/6), 6-1 win over Stosur, the champion in New York in 2011.

It was one of the most significant victories of the 21-year-old's career, who has been on an upward curve in 2018 as she looks to improve on a world ranking of 156.

Boulter face either top-seed Ashleigh Barty or China's Duan Ying-Ying in the last eight.
