London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep moved into the quarterfinals at Wimbledon on Tuesday with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Kazakhstan's Zarina Diyas.

Halep became the second Romanian woman to reach the quarterfinals at the All England Club, joining Virginia Ruzici, who made it to the quarters in 1978 and 1981. Ruzici is now Halep's manager.

Halep, the highest-ranked player left in the women's draw, will next face 2013 Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki, who beat Yaroslava Shvedova by a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 margin.
