Serena Williams wins again at Wimbledon, closes in on Grand Slam No

All top-10 women's seeds OUT of Wimbledon before the quarter-finals as Pliskova falls

The American superstar advanced as no top-10 women made the quarter-finals in 50 years of professional tennis following the fourth-round elimination of seventh seed Karolina Pliskova.

Predictably, Pliskova was asked why there have been so many surprises. And Williams was followed by Rafael Nadal - two titles at Wimbledon, 17 at all Slams - who dispatched 93rd-ranked Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.

She steadied herself, though, and even had a break point when Williams served at 4-2, but her chances were few and far between as her opponent continued to charge through a draw blown wide open by an exodus of seeds.

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

"This is tough because I can not see myself from the side".

Take off a week, then you start practising, then play a tournament.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion is yet to be truly tested at the All England Club, and won 6-2 6-2 in confident fashion against world No. 120 Evgeniya Rodina. There's a lot of things that, I don't know if you can tell, but I really need to work on.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs.

It took Mannarino so much toil and trouble to win one game, saving four break points to hold to begin the second set.

"I don't think the draw is open".

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

Pliskova lost to Kiki Bertens of Netherlands, the No. 20 seed, in straight sets.

The only man left under six feet tall is Japan's Kei Nishikori, who beat an injured Ernests Gulbis 4-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-1.

"I mean, I'm definitely going to have to look at it the right way". The only fourth-round match that wasn't completed on Monday - fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro against Frenchman Gilles Simon - will also be played to a finish. I'm just like an artist and I'm playing with the heart, yeah.

Serena Williams has warned her Wimbledon rivals she is nowhere near her best despite powering into the quarter-finals without dropping a set. "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?"
