Serena Williams extends Wimbledon winning run to make quarters

Serena Williams has survived another day of Wimbledon carnage to edge ever closer to a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown. Williams' latest match required only 62 minutes and was not much of a contest, a 6-2, 6-2 win in which she compiled a 30-5 edge in winners against Evgeniya Rodina, a qualifier from Russian Federation ranked 120th who was dealing with a bothersome left thigh.

Serena Williams returns a shot to Evgeniya Rodina.

Dutch tennis star Kiki Bertens followed up her victory over Venus Williams at Wimbledon last week by knocking out seventh seed Karolína Plísková in straight sets. The number 11 seed overcame a determined Belinda Bencic 6-3, 7-6 and, like Görges, will fancy her chances at upsetting Williams' charge to the title.

Bertens will play Julia Goerges for a semi-final spot after the German 13th seed ousted Croatian Donna Vekic 6-3 6-2.

"It never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision", Cibulkova said. "She can really hit the ball well".

Rodina attempted to throw everything at Williams, but could simply not make an impression as she was blown away on every level.

Williams will play Camila Giorgi for a last-four berth after the Italian progressed to her maiden grand slam quarter-final with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of Ekaterina Makarova.

Federer, who has won 32 consecutive sets at the tournament and held serve 81 games in a row, was asked whether he paused for even a moment to wonder why he wasn't being given more of a test.

Serena Williams has warned her Wimbledon rivals she is nowhere near her best despite powering into the quarter-finals without dropping a set.

After welcoming Olympia in September and tying the knot to the Reddit co-founder and venture capitalist in November, went back into full training mode-and just recently, shared that she missed a major milestone.

"I don't want to talk about this anymore. I'm just thinking one at a time". "I don't know. I actually would not be able to do that".
