Wimbledon 2018: Serena 'to strive for perfection' against Giorgi

Serena Williams raced into her 13th Wimbledon quarter-final as the seven-time champion thrashed Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 6-2, 6-2 in just 62 minutes on Monday.

Rodina was very much in uncharted territory, having never previously gone beyond the second round of a Slam, and it did not take long for Williams to impose her will as she raced into a 3-0 lead.

Serena Williams' Wimbledon tournament rolls on, as the women's quarterfinals will be without a top-10 player for the first time in the Open era.

Having missed Wimbledon a year ago while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

And she ensured there would not be another shock in Monday's contest on Centre Court, her seemingly unstoppable march to the final continuing with a 6-2, 6-2 triumph.

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

"I think it will be interesting to see what she gravitates to".

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. She was hitting the ball well.

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.

'Each of us, seeded or not, I'm not seeded, we're just here to do our best. Also still in the running is No. 12 seed, Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.

"The seas have parted for her", nine-times champion Martina Navratilova said from the BBC's courtside bunker.

The 26-year-old faces German 13th seed Julia Goerges or Croatian world number 55 Donna Vekic on Tuesday.

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.
