Trump visit wouldn't rattle Serena at Wimbledon

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

Serena Williams is set to resume her quest for an eighth Wimbledon title as the women's quarterfinals take center stage on Tuesday.

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.

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

Williams will play Camila Giorgi for a last-four berth after the Italian progressed to her maiden grand slam quarter-final with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of Ekaterina Makarova. "For me, there's so much farther I want to go to get back where I was - and hopefully go beyond that".

Williams said she would not want her daughter to have to grow up being compared to her mother.

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

The teams then traded two scores each before Ivan Rakitic calmly converted the winning penalty. Now, finally, there is a team ready to join them in Croatian football's pantheon of heroes.

Bertens next faces 13th-seeded Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-3, 6-2 to secure her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance. She advanced Monday with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Belinda Bencic and will next face Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation. "But also, I've never been ranked where I am", Williams said Monday after her fourth straight-set victory of the fortnight.

In press conference after her third round Wimbledon loss to Su-Wei Hsieh, the world No. 1 Simona Halep admitted that she was exhausted mentally and physically after the French Open, which clearly influenced her performance at the All England Club.

Bertens hit seven aces and saved eight of the 10 break points she faced to win 6-3, 7-6 (2) against Pliskova and complete the latest upset in the women's draw.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko is the second-highest-ranked player left in the draw and faces Dominika Cibulkova next after the Slovakian world number 33 continued her defiant run with a 6-4 6-1 victory over Su-Wei Hseih.

"The seas have parted for her", nine-times champion Martina Navratilova said from the BBC's courtside bunker. Also still in the running is No. 12 seed, Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.
