Wimbledon 2018: Serena Williams breezes past Evgeniya Rodina and into quarter-finals

So it's really cool.

Next up for the 23-time Grand Slam victor is Italy's Camila Giorgi, who is making her debut in the quarter-finals of a major.

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

Roger Federer of Switzerland celebrates defeating France's Adrian Mannarino in their men's singles match, on day seven of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, Monday July 9, 2018.

Following Pliskova's exit, No. 11 Angelique Kerber is the highest remaining seed in the women's draw.

She is yet to drop a set this year.

After a series of upsets in the women's singles tournament at Wimbledon, all of the top-10 seeds from the women's draw have been eliminated.

With all of the top-10 seeds out of the tournament, Williams is the comfortable favourite heading into the last-eight - a status she's more than used to after a remarkable career spanning more than two decades.

Israeli officials have repeatedly said they would not allow Iran to maintain a long-term military presence in Syria . In mid-April a strike on the T4 airbase in Homs province blamed on Israel killed seven IRGC soldiers, including Col.


Serena Williams has warned her Wimbledon rivals she is nowhere near her best despite powering into the quarter-finals without dropping a set. He next faces Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the USA 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Having shaken off the rust following her lenghthy lay-off after the birth of her daughter Olympia in September, she is rounding nicely into form for the business end of the tournament.

Hsieh protested, leading the match referee to come on to discuss the decision with the umpire as calls of "replay the point" came from a bemused crowd on Court 18.

The 2017 French Open victor stormed into the last eight for the first time at The All England Club with a 7-6 (7-4) 6-0 victory in the first of 16 fourth-round singles encounters on so-called Manic Monday at Wimbledon.

Cibulkova went on to advance to a third Wimbledon quarterfinal, following 2011 and 2016.

Ominiously for the other seven women left in the draw, the 23-time Grand Slam champion, who missed Wimbledon past year but won the title on her previous two visits, insists there is still plenty of room for improvement.

"At the French Open I had all that pressure, now it's gone", former junior Wimbledon champion Ostapenko said.
