New Zealand tennis player Marina Erakovic and her partner have made the quarter-finals of the women's doubles at Wimbledon.

Erakovic and Tamarine Tanasugarn, of Thailand, beat the 10th seeded Czech pairing of Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-2 6-1 on Monday.

Erakovic and Tanasugarn only reached the main draw because of a late withdrawal of another pair.
