Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams advances to quarterfinals

"I really needed to stay very aggressive to win the point", the Latvian told reporters.

On the other hand, it remains to be seen as to where Williams will conclude her latest run through Wimbledon with a quarterfinal matchup now on the horizon. I have no secrets. "Just one can win, and that was not me today". "I think I'm playing pretty solid". But only because I enjoy it.

"Winning never gets old at any stage in your career, ever, ever", said the five-time champion.

Williams is not looking at the significance of her achievements while the big matches keep coming.

"I know she had an fantastic moment there". "But for now, it's all about focusing on the best performance possible (on Tuesday)".

American CoCo Vandeweghe, the 24th seed, reached her second Grand Slam quarterfinal of 2017 with a 7-6 (4), 6-4 win over former No. 1 and fifth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.

But veteran 10th seed Venus appears as likely as anybody to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Saturday, and a 6-3 6-2 fourth-round victory over Croatian teenager Ana Konjuh was as impressive as the scoreline indicates. "I didn't watch any of the French when I was finished with it", Williams said. Rybarikova lost in the first round at Wimbledon every year from 2008 to 2014.
