Serena Williams extends Wimbledon winning run to make quarters

10 July 2018

Evgeniya Rodina, another mother beaten by Williams yesterday, 6-2, 6-2, did the decent thing and said the American was her idol. Williams, herself, responded with a smile.

Seventh seed Karolina Pliskova is the latest big gun to fall, the Czech crashing to a 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to big-hitting Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens.

Serena Williams figures this statistic needs an asterisk: For the first time since Wimbledon started seeding players in the 1920s, none of the top 10 women reached the quarterfinals.

The 36-year-old is returning to Wimbledon this year after missing the tennis tournament last summer due to her pregnancy.

Asked what she likes the most about the way Williams plays, Giorgi responded: "I don't follow tennis".

Rodina, who upset 10th-seeded Madison Keys in the previous round, broke back for 3-2 in the second set but was broken to love straight away.

This was the right-hander's third century in the game's shortest format, making him just the second player to make three tons. In T20 you need players who can manipulate the strike and can keep you in the entire game and that is a skill that Joe has.

"Today was tougher than the scoreline suggested".

'Each of us, seeded or not, I'm not seeded, we're just here to do our best. So it's really cool. "You still have to beat the players".

Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time. As she keeps reminding folks, this is just her fourth tournament since missing more than a year of action because she was pregnant and gave birth to a daughter last September. She advanced Monday with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Belinda Bencic and will next face Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation. "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line". She beat the ninth-seeded Venus Williams in the third round after coming from a break down in the third set.

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

Jelena Ostapenko and Dominika Cibulkova will also meet in Tuesday's quarterfinals.

They eventually sent him back to the locker room with a standing ovation, acknowledging the talent displayed by Federer during a 6-0, 7-5, 6-4 victory over 22nd-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France in the fourth round Monday, yes, but also his superiority over the course of a career that has produced eight Wimbledon championships and 20 Grand Slam titles, both records for a man.
