Serena Williams's next opponent: I don't like women's game

With the fall of No. 7 seed Karolina Pliskova, this marks the first time in the history of the Open era (women or men) where there won't be a single top-10 seed playing in a Grand Slam quarterfinal.

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.

Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time.

Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens have all been eliminated.

Federer was followed by Serena Williams, she of the seven Wimbledon trophies among her 23 majors, who was hardly challenged in a 6-2, 6-2 win against 120th-ranked qualifier Evgeniya Rodina of Russian Federation.

'I'm getting there. Yeah, I don't think I'm there yet. "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever". "In this tournament, she seems to be in the right mood".

In a matchup of the only two mothers remaining in the draw, Williams jumped into a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes. "But also, I've never been ranked where I am", Williams said Monday after her fourth straight-set victory of the fortnight. Consider, too, that the other 15 women in fourth-round action Monday own a combined three major trophies: Angelique Kerber has two, Jelena Ostapenko the other.

"I'm always striving for perfection".

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko is the second-highest-ranked player left in the draw and faces Dominika Cibulkova next after the Slovakian world number 33 continued her defiant run with a 6-4 6-1 victory over Su-Wei Hseih.

With a tiny tennis racket bag on her arm and rocking a cute pink frock, the 10-month-old was all smiles as she prepared to head out for the match. This was a match which I maybe should have won, if I maybe play a little bit better I can win. "I answered this question, like, 10 times", the 2016 U.S. Open runner-up said.

"It sounds pretty odd when you saw my record from the last five years here".
