    Kvitova eventually wins the set 6-2 when Azarenka double faults ... that's put her through to the final where she'll face either Maria Sharapova or Sabine Lisicki



    Who was she expecting to see?

    Back on centre court, Germany's Sabine Lisicki is beginning her match with Russia's Maria Sharapova. Lisicki wins the first three games



    But Sharapova comes back and claims the opening set 6-4. She then goes on to make an early break in the second set ...

    Lisicki then concedes a second break. Her Wimbledon challenge is fading fast



    Sharapova finishes her wildcard opponent off, winning the set 6-3. It's seven years since her last Wimbledon final, and now she can look forward to another

    Italian Tourism Minister Michela Vittoria Brambilla plays with a tiger in this undated picture made available by Minister's press office. Brambilla is making the rounds on Italian social networks this week for pictures of her playing with a full grown tiger. The apparent home video has sparked some allegations that the touching pictures have been made available at a time when Brambilla needs to show a softer side of her nature, and that maybe the animal was doped. But the minister denies such allegations. "This tiger was saved from a terrible fate. It is an animal that I love greatly, as I think everyone can see in the video," she said

    A truck carrying dogs can be seen travelling along a road on the outskirts of Beijing June 28, 2011. The first draft of a law against animal abuse, aiming to protect animals from being hurt or killed in a cruel manner, was completed by a group of experts and was due to be raised for legislation in April, local media reported earlier this year. The proposal included jailing people who eat dog meat for up 15 days. While many Chinese enjoy rich dog meat, especially during cold winters, some object to the practice in some regions of beating dogs to death to release the blood into the meat
