London - Angelique Kerber crashed out of Wimbledon and lost her hold on the world number one ranking as the German was beaten 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 by Spain's Garbine Muguruza on Monday.

Kerber's fourth round exit extended a miserable run for last year's Wimbledon runner-up, who has failed to make the last eight at any of this year's three majors.

Kerber, the 2016 Wimbledon runner-up, will be replaced at number one by either Karolina Pliskova or Simona Halep.

Muguruza, the 2015 finalist, goes onto play Svetlana Kuznetsova for a place in the last four.

Wimbledon results on Monday, the seventh day of the 2017 championships at the All England Club (x denotes seeding):
