Briton Joe Salisbury and American partner Rajeev Ram reached the men's doubles semi-finals at Wimbledon with an impressive straight-set win.

The duo, who won the 2020 Australian Open, beat Colombian third seeds Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 6-3 6-4 7-6 (7-2).

Salisbury wrapped up the victory in style with a deft backhand return.

Ram and Salisbury, seeded sixth, will face top seeds Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic of Croatia in the last four.

It was a memorable day for Salisbury who later booked his place in the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles.

Salisbury and partner Harriet Dart clinched a 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 win over Austrian Oliver Marach and Lyudmyla Kichenok of Ukraine.

Fittingly, Dart wrapped up the victory with a service game to love.

They will now face fellow Briton Naomi Broady and her French partner Jeremy Chardy in the last eight.


Broady and Chardy had earlier eased through after a 6-3 7-5 win over South African Raven Klaasen and Croatia's Darija Jurak.

Briton Neal Skupski and American Desirae Krawczyk secured their place after a 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 win over British pair Arthur Fery and Tara Moore in 89 minutes.

Fery and Moore forced a tie-break in the first set but the experience of Skupski and Krawczyk told before they closed out the second set in more routine fashion.

Seventh seeds Skupski and Krawczyk will play Dutchman Jean-Julien Rojer and Slovenian Andreja Klepac in the quarter-finals.
