Serena Williams and Ashleigh Barty move into Wimbledon fourth round
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.

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