  • Breaking: All Top 10 Women’s Seeds Eliminated At Wimbledon

The 29-year-old dropped the first set to Dutch 20th seed Bertens but fought back to win 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.

World No 52 Giorgi, in her first Grand Slam quarter-final, was Williams' highest-ranked opponent of Wimbledon so far and provided a stern test but ultimately fell short.

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.

Rodina left the court for a few minutes at the end of the first set but when she returned Williams continued her domination with an early break in the second.

Triumphant in her two previous Wimbledon tilts in 2015 and 2016, Williams's victory also extended her winning streak on the London grass to 19 matches.

Goerges turned out to be an unstoppable force as she won eight of the last nine games to subdue her friend, whose lunging effort on match point rolled into the bottom of the net.

Williams, 36, now heads to the semi-finals to compete against German tennis player, Julia Gorges.

"After the first set, I said "okay let's go three sets", I just kept fighting".

Having shaken off the rust following her lengthy lay-off after the birth of her daughter Olympia in September, Williams is on the verge of a 10th Wimbledon final appearance. Serena Williams will be there, though, after she moved a step closer to an eighth title at the All England Club.

"It was great matches", Giorgi said in her postmatch news conference.

"I'm here just to prove that I'm back, and I feel like I'm back".

But her blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

Williams, however, lifted her intensity in the second set, avoiding any break points as she secured one break of her own. Williams holds a 3-0 head-to-head record over Goerges, with the most recent victory coming in the third round of the French Open last month.

"This is only my fourth tournament back so I don't feel pressure, I don't feel I have to win this". Ostapenko won last year's French Open.

Two-time grand slam victor Angelique Kerber faces 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko in the other semifinal after the pair downed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 7-5 and Dominika Cibulkova 7-5 6-4, respectively.

The American then cruised through the deciding set with a single break of serve enough to ensure her place in the semi-finals.

Also, Juan Martin del Potro became the last man into the quarterfinals by beating Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5).
