Six-time champion Serena Williams overcame a first-set blip to reach Wimbledon’s last eight with a straight-sets win over Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Williams, 34, defeated the Russian 7-5, 6-0 to set up a quarter-final tie with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
Kuznetsova failed to serve out the first set and before rain halted play the top seed was far from her best.
But under the Centre Court roof, Williams was supreme, winning eight games on the trot to secure victory.
From trailing 3-1, two-time Grand Slam champion Kuznetsova twice broke Williams’ serve for a chance to serve for the set, but the defending champion immediately broke back to level at 5-5 before play was suspended because of light rain.
When the players returned to the court the roof had been closed and the indoor conditions favoured Williams’ big serve, with Kuznetsova failing to win a game as the world number one confidently secured the first set and, without further loss of a game, the match.
“There are certain wins that you just go through in the course of a Grand Slam and then there are statement wins. That was a statement win by Serena.
“The way she played, the way she was utterly dominant after they came back when the roof was closed, was so impressive. She looked unbeatable in the second part of this match. “She had 43 winners to just 14 unforced errors. That is amazing.”
