Williams is the only remaining American in the women's singles bracket.

It is the first time in Wimbledon history not one of the top 10 women's seeds have reached the quarter-finals.

Kiki Bertens celebrates victory against Venus Williams. 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 continues her quest for an eighth title later against Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina, with the victor to meet Italian Camila Giorgi, who advanced to her maiden grand slam quarter-final with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of Ekaterina Makarova.

No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko vs. Dominika Cibulkova, and No. 13 Julia Goerges vs. She was the lone top-10 women's seed still around at this upset-filled tournament, and now she's also gone. She jumped to a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes.

Ominiously for the other seven women left in the draw, the 23-time Grand Slam champion, who missed Wimbledon a year ago but won the title on her previous two visits, insists there is still plenty of room for improvement.

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

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

Federer, who has won 32 consecutive sets at the tournament and held serve 81 games in a row, was asked whether he paused for even a moment to wonder why he wasn't being given more of a test.

And, just as predictably, she was in no mood to provide an answer.

But the 36-year-old shared over the weekend that despite a strict schedule to be as present as possible for her daughter, she still managed to miss out on baby Alexis's first steps while getting in some training for Wimbledon.

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