Watch live streaming online coverage on ESPN3.com. WatchESPN and ESPN will also have live coverage of all the quarter-final matches.
Tuesday’s action will be played on the show courts – the Centre Court and Court One.
No. 1 and defending champion Serena Williams of USA will battle against the 21st seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in the second match of the day on Centre Court.
Serena booked her place in the last eight with a 7-5 6-0 win over Russian No. 13 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in round four of the tournament.
Also playing on Centre Court is No. 5 Simona Halep of Romania who will take on No. 4 Angelique Kerber of Germany in the opening quarter-finals at 8:00am ET.

Meanwhile, Cibulkova will play her quarter-finals on Court One, after beating third seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3 5-7 9-7 in round four on Sunday.
Victory for her would put her into the semi-finals, which would see the postponement of her wedding.
But she said: “We chose this (date) because I never saw myself as such a great grasscourt player … but winning Eastbourne and now being in the quarter-finals I would change my mind.
“But it’s no problem. We can postpone it (the wedding). I’m still here and I’m playing my match tomorrow.”
