Roger Federer, Serena Williams speak about many seeds losing at Wimbledon

Posted July 11, 2018

Williams is 3-0 against Goerges, winning in straight sets each time. "I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this", Williams said. "It's pretty unreal for me at the moment to get to that stage at a grand slam", the 29-year-old said.

Kerber beat Kasatkina on grass at Eastbourne two weeks ago and again she was in control, finishing off the first set easily before landing an early break in the second.

Germany's Goerges came from a set down on Court No 1 to defeat her friend and occasional doubles partner Kiki Bertens, the Dutch No 20 seed.

After a series of upsets made this edition of Wimbledon the first since it began seeding players in the 1920s that none of the top 10 women reached the quarterfinals, Nos.

Waiting to take her on will be a certain Serena Williams - a player who knows what it takes to succeed at Wimbledon having already triumphed at the All England Club seven times.

Twenty years after making her Wimbledon debut, Williams looks as good as ever and she moves into the quarter-finals without dropping a set in her first four matches.

On Wednesday, Federer will play No. 8 Kevin Anderson, a South African who was the 2017 U.S. Open runner-up and advanced with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4) victory over Gael Monfils.

Serena Williams is prepping for her return to Wimbledon and she will have an extra special fan in attendance to cheer her on.

In other play, Dominika Cibulkova overcame a delay caused by a controversial decision from the umpire to advance to the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Hsieh Su-wei.

"After the first set, I was like, 'All right, let's go three sets.' And that's kind of what I thought".

Hsieh returned the ball over the net and into the court as Cibulkova immediately challenged. She beat the ninth-seeded Venus Williams in the third round after coming from a break down in the third set. "I think it's a great week". "I'm really happy for you".

However, a huge missed opportunity to break in the second proved the turning point and Williams hit the accelerator, outgunning Giorgi in a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 triumph that edges her closer to the final and a record-tying 24th Slam. From then on, the result felt inevitable as she served beautifully, levelling the match and then, after a stunning backhand to break for 2-1 in the decider, she eased through the set, serving out to love to take her place in the last four.
