Wimbledon: Easy for Serena Williams as she rolls into quarter-finals

Dominic Inglot

Bertens, a French Open semi-finalist in 2016, is into the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time.

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.

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

She is yet to drop a set this year.

"It was tougher than the scoreline, " Williams said.

That might sound a tad scary to opponents.

Williams hit serves up to 118 miles per hour, delivering 10 aces, including four in one game.

With all the top seeds sent home, the Wimbledon favorite is now Serena Williams. "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

Williams is seeded 25th after returning from having a baby, but is looking like her usual dominant self on the grass courts. Williams faces Italy's Camila Giorgi in the quarterfinals at 7 a.m. Tuesday at the All England Club. Two others - Kerber and Ostapenko - have Grand Slam titles on their resume already.

No. 7 Karolina Pliskova's wait for a major title will continue.

Pliskova crashed to a 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to big-hitting Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens, leaving world No.11 Angelique Kerber as the highest-ranked player left in the wide open draw.

Bertens now faces No. 13 Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic 6-3, 6-2.

The victor of the Williams and Giorgi match battles Bertens or Goerges in the semifinals.

Predictably, Pliskova was asked why there have been so many surprises.

"I don't want to talk about this anymore".

Both Anderson of South Africa and the 44th-ranked Monfils of France were bidding to reach the quarterfinals for the first time on their 10th appearance at the All England Club. "I don't know why all the seeds are gone".
