The worst news for her next opponent, Italy's Camila Giorgi, is that Serena believes there is more to come.

Williams, who won the Wimbledon title on her last two visits in 2015 and 2016, is now on an 18-match winning streak at the All England Club.

The upsets continue at Wimbledon with no top-10 stars making the women's quarter-finals at The All England Club for the first time in 50 years of professional tennis.

Having missed Wimbledon past year while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, the last of the top-10 women, lost 6-3, 7-6 (1) to Kiki Bertens. I mean, I have a long way to go. Serena needs to win three more matches to earn the 24th Grand Slam singles title of her career, a mark which would tie current record holder Margaret Court.

Williams is seeded 25th after returning from having a baby, but is looking like her usual dominant self on the grass courts. She should be relaxed, she looked nervous to me.' Boris Becker stated: 'I don't quite understand what happened in the women's game.

'I'm getting there. Yeah, I don't think I'm there yet.

"It was a good win but it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest". She advanced Monday with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Belinda Bencic and will next face Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.

Bertens will meet Julia Goerges after Germany's 13th seed ousted Croatian Donna Vekic 6-3 6-2 in their fourth-round contest.

"Each of us, seeded or not, we're just here to do our best".

Asked whether she wanted Alexis to one day follow her mother or whether aunt Venus might be her coach, the seven-times Wimbledon champion said: "No, I would hope she doesn't play tennis".

"You never know what to expect from her [Ostapenko]", Cibulkova said.

The 12th seed will face Dominika Cibulkova next after the Slovakian continued her defiant run with a 6-4 6-1 victory over Su-Wei Hseih.
