Eugenie Bouchard of Canada is set to face Frenchwoman Alize Cornet, while former champion Maria Sharapova will lock horns with Angelique Kerber in a bid to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Wimbledon on Monday.

Cornet after upsetting top-seed Serena Williams in the third round would be aiming to book her maiden last-eight appearance in a Grand Slam event. The French might not have played cleanest of the matches against Serena to move into Round 4, but she dug deep and varied her game to get past the former champion.

World number 25 has caused many upsets on the tour, but consistency has been a problem for the 24-year-old. On the other hand, Bouchard, after semifinals appearances in both Australian and French Open, is regarded as one of the consistent young players on the tour.

In their lone match, Cornet got the better of Bouchard in a three-set thriller in Strasbourg on clay. World number 14 Canadian said Alize is on top of her form after pulling off an upset against top-ranked player, but insisted she is not worried and looking forward for the match.

"Alize is playing great tennis," said Bouchard. "She has beaten Serena twice already this year. To do that is no easy feat. She likes to be aggressive. Her forehand, she likes to put a bit more spin on it. Her backhand is a little bit more flat."

"But I am not going to worry about her," she added. "I am going to focus on me. Tennis is very mental. I am looking forward to a battle."

Meanwhile, Sharapova will face first real test in The Championships this year, when she play ninth-seeded Kerber in the fourth round. The 2004 champion is heading as favourite in the match, not only because she has a better head-to-head record against Kerber, but because she is in a prime form at the moment.

Fifth-seeded Russian, who is aiming for a rare French Open and Wimbledon double, has only lost seven games en route to the fourth round and won 81 per cent points on the first serve.

"I'm quite happy with the way I've gone about things so far," Sharapova said. "You never know what to expect. Each match poses different challenges. But I'm happy I've gone further than last year, erasing those memories and trying to form new ones."

World number seven, Kerber has won just once against the Russian native in 2012, but her victory came on clay. The German is hoping to put an impressive performance against five-time major winner and said she has to give her best shot against Sharapova.

"It will be a nice match," Kerber said. "I have nothing to lose. I will go out there, try to enjoy the match and try to focus just on myself. I will not focus on her. I will just focus on my way. I need to play on a high level to beat her."
