18 in a row! Serena extends Wimbledon winning run to make quarters

18 in a row! Serena extends Wimbledon winning run to make quarters

"I don't feel pressure", Williams said.

"I think everything right now is a little bit of a surprise", she said. So it's really cool.

"And it's interesting because I don't even scout as much because when I watch them play, it's a totally different game then when they play me".

Bertens now faces No. 13 Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic 6-3, 6-2.

Giorgi enjoyed a confident start, outhitting Serena by eight winners to six as she won the first set and opened up a 0-30 lead in the second game of the second stanza.

Williams was elevated to a seeding of 25th despite slipping down the rankings as a result of maternity leave. Seven-time champion Williams has won all three of her meetings with first-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist Camila Giorgi, with the most recent coming in the first round of the 2016 Australian Open.

There was a controlled fury about Williams's play, and when she conjured an off-balance backhand victor to break in the third game of the decider, the outcome was inevitable.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich. "But I'm not sure if I'm a great coach", she said.

With her easy power game in sync, Williams looked serene as she cruised to victory to set up a clash with Italy's Camila Giorgi, the fifth unseeded player she will have faced in a dream draw on her Wimbledon return. Rodina converted the only other break point she had in the match before immediately dropping her own serve.

In the third round of the women's doubles, Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic fell to a 6-4, 6-3 defeat to Czech third seeds Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova.

Considering what she went through during a traumatic labour nine months ago, since when she has played only a handful of matches, Williams's physical condition has been impressive. "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

As both players pleaded their case the match referee had to be called before, following a 10-minute delay, the umpire's decision was changed and the point replayed.

Del Potro will face two-time champion Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

She proceeded to break for a third time as Pliskova for a third time as the seventh seed netted a forehand on set point.

Some may argue she has yet to face a stiff test here - she has beaten players ranked 105th, 135th, 62nd and now 120th in the world - but they can not argue with the fact she only returned to competitive singles tennis in March and has now reached another Grand Slam quarter-final.

Both Anderson of South Africa and the 44th-ranked Monfils of France were bidding to reach the quarterfinals for the first time on their 10th appearance at the All England Club.
