Canada's Eugenie Bouchard has advanced to the semi-finals in Wimbledon after defeating Germany's Angelique Kerber 6-3 and 6-4.

Bouchard, the 13th seed from Westmount, Que., will face off against Romania's Simona Halep in the next round.

Halep beat Germany's Sabine Lisicki 6-4 and 6-0 in the quarter-finals.

The other semi-final match will pit the Czech Republic's Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova against each other.

Meanwhile, Canadian Milos Raonic is on the court today in the men's quarter-finals at Wimbledon.  The native of Thornhill, Ontario is facing the surprising Nick Kyrgios. The 19-year-old Australian is ranked 144th on the A-T-P Tour but knocked off second seed Rafael Nadal yesterday. 

Raonic isn't the only Canadian on the court as Vancouver's Vasek Pospisil and American partner Jack Sock have a third-round matchup in the men's doubles tournament.
