Serena Williams at Wimbledon

Serena Williams is safely through into the fourth round at Wimbledon after bludgeoning her way past dangerous German Julia Goerges.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion was simply too strong for the 18th seed, and extended her record of never losing a set to Georges to five matches.

“It’s been an arduous year for me, so every match I’m hoping to improve tons,” Williams said after her 6-3, 6-4 win.

“Every time I get out there, I try,” added Williams.

She will be joined in the second week of the tournament by world number one Ashleigh Barty, who ended Harriet Dart’s dream run on Centre Court in just 53 minutes.

Two-time champion Petra Kvitova is although through after a 6-3, 6-2 win over Magda Linette.
