Serena Williams of the United States celebrates winning a point during her women's singles match against Russia's Evgeniya Rodina, on day seven of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, Monday July 9, 2018. Despite the two-year gap since their previous meeting, Williams professed to having watched 52nd-ranked Giorgi play "a lot".

It is the first time in Wimbledon history not one of the top 10 women's seeds have reached the quarter-finals.

But her blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

"I think", Federer said when it was over, "I can be very pleased".

Serena, seeded 25th, was facing a fellow mother in Rodina, the world number 120 who calls the American her "idol".

"This is only my fourth tournament back", Williams said.


Kerber passed a tough test against Belinda Bencic, the 2016 runner-up and former Australian and US Open champion prevailing 6-3 7-6 (7-5).

She next faces 13th-seeded Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-3, 6-2 to secure her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance. I know it's more hard now, there are many more demands on your time etc and it was such a big title for her because she'd been in three finals before and for Romania blah blah blah... but really?

In other play, Dominika Cibulkova overcame a delay caused by a controversial decision from the umpire to advance to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Hsieh Su-wei. She faces 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, just two weeks after beating the Russian in a third-set tiebreaker on the grass courts of Eastbourne, tying their head-to-head record at 3-3.

"I'm not feeling the pressure because I'm not looking on the seeded or who is left or not", Kerber said of her improved title chances.

Latvian history-maker Jelena Ostapenko remains in the hunt for a second grand slam title in 13 months after ending Aliaksandra Sasnovich's giant-killing campaign.
