Williams is looking for her eighth Wimbledon title and has established herself as the big favorite once again, with the top-10 seeds all eliminated.

Rodina called Williams her idol and one look at Williams' performance it was clear to see why.

Serena Williams' Wimbledon tournament rolls on, as the women's quarterfinals will be without a top-10 player for the first time in the Open era.

"I don't think this has happened to this extreme".

No. 25 seed Serena Williams clinched a spot in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2018 by beating Russian Evgeniya Rodina in straight sets Monday in London.

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.

"It was a good win but it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest". "For me, there's so much further I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

That might sound a tad scary to opponents. "She can really hit the ball well".

Of ther other quarter-finalists, only Kerber and former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko have won Grand Slams.

On the bottom half of the bracket, it'll be 12-time major champion Djokovic against 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori, and No. 2 seed Nadal against either 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

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

"I faced a thousand and three seeds in my life, so I'm okay", she said.

Giorgi, Kasatkina, Bertens and Goerges will each be making her debut in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

'I'm just only in the quarter-finals.

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.

And, just as predictably, she was in no mood to provide an answer.
