Serena Williams extends Wimbledon winning run to make quarters

"I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this", Williams said.

The 2017 French Open champion powered to a 7-6 (7-4) 6-0 victory over the first-round slayer of pre-tournament title favourite and two-time champion Petra Kvitova.

Serena Williams celebrates after winning against Italy's Camila Giorgi during their women's singles quarter-final match on the eighth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London, July 10, 2018. "We've played so many tough matches", Kerber said after she finally sealed the win on her seventh match point.

After losing the first set in the quarterfinals Tuesday, Serena Williams looked dejected and confused.

In June, she was a match away from the French Open quarterfinals before withdrawing from the tournament an hour before her anticipated match against Maria Sharapova.

Yet here Williams is, getting stronger and moving better with every match. "Even when I was down the first set, I thought, 'Well, she's playing great".

She probably should have done her homework on Williams, who crushed the upset-minded Italian after dropping the first set.

Williams stepped up to the line at 5-4 and brought up match point with an ace before completing victory when Giorgi could only push a forehand into the net.

"It wasn't as tight as I was used to", she said last month.

"Everybody has to deserve that, I think".

Williams, asked whether she's felt any pressure during this tournament, said, "This is only my fourth tournament back". "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?" "I'm just pleased with my game today". "For me, there's so much further I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

Next up for the 36-year-old American is a match against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victor against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

But Goerges kept on believing as she recovered from 4-1 down in the second to level up proceedings when Bertens swiped a backhand into the tramlines on the German's third set point.

Dutchwoman Bertens, who had gained an appetite for eating up higher-ranked players having beaten ninth seed Venus Williams and number seven Karolina Pliskova in the past week, appeared set to swallow up another when she won the first set.
