Imperious Serena Williams dominates Evgeniya Rodina to advance at Wimbledon
A resurgent Serena Williams proved far too powerful for Evgeniya Rodina as she moved imperiously into the quarter-finals.
The 25th seed produced some of her finest tennis since the birth of her daughter, overwhelming her Russian opponent 6-2 6-2.
“It was tougher than the scoreline,” Williams said.
“I knew we were both moms, and I’m not sure how often that’s happened, if ever. So it’s really cool. You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great.”
Williams will now face unseeded Italian Camila Giorgo in the quarter-finals on Tuesday.
Giorgi beat former quarter-finalist Ekaterina Makarova, who eliminated second seed Caroline Wozniacki, 6-3 6-4.
