Kerber leads Kasatkina, Ostapenko leads Cibulkova in women’s singles quarter-finals

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

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.

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

At the Royal Wedding - 'I've known Meghan for years!'

Williams faces Camila Giorgi of Italy next, while 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber plays Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.

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.

Serena Williams eased her way into the quarter-finals at Wimbledon - in just her second Grand Slam since returning from pregnancy.

A comfortable set was wrapped up in fitting fashion as a double fault from Rodina handed Williams a break to love.

Bertens, who was contemplating retirement previous year after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, is the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007.

"It's definitely family before tennis for me", she said to Harper's Bazaar UK. 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?

"I didn't expect it, honestly", said Goerges, who lost in the first round at the All England Club each of the past five years.

Pliskova's exit leaves world No.11 Angelique Kerber as the highest-ranked woman left in the wide open draw.

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.

After welcoming Olympia in September and tying the knot to the Reddit co-founder and venture capitalist in November, went back into full training mode-and just recently, shared that she missed a major milestone.
