Bulgaria's best female tennis player Tsvetana Pironkova has followed country fellow Grigor Dimitrov out of Wimbledon.

Despite her powerful start, Pironkova suffered a defeat by Agnieszka Radwanska, who secured a Wimbledon quarter-final spot after beating the Bulgarian 4-6 6-3 6-3 in the fourth round.

Number four seed Radwanska, last year's runner-up, is the highest seed left in the women's singles and will now meet Li Na for a place in the semi-finals.

Radwanska, who became the first Pole to reach a Grand Slam singles final in the open era 12 months ago, was excited at the prospect of the all-Polish men's quarter-final between Jerzy Janowicz and Lukasz Kubot.

"This is a huge day for Polish tennis, especially on the men's tour," said Radwanska. "A Polish quarter-final at Wimbledon, it never happened before.

"They have really nothing to lose. That will be a very good match. If I have a chance, I'll watch for sure."
