Serena Williams has been fined 10,000 US dollars by the All England Club for damaging a court during practice before the Wimbledon tournament started on Monday. Williams won six sets straight from 3-2 to easily grasp the match.
American player Alison Riske came from a set down to upset the Top ranked Ash Barty 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 at Wimbledon to reach her first Quarter-finals. Williams, who was sidelined by a knee injury earlier in the year, added: 'The rust is definitely wearing off.
Serena is well on her way to eighth Wimbledon Title after finishing on the losing side a year ago against Angelique Kerber. Two more breaks at the start of the second put Williams in total control, although Suarez Navarro did at least lay a glove on her with a surprise break to love.
Ukraine's Elina Svitolina also moved into the last eight with a 6-4, 6-2 win against Petra Martic of Croatia.
The loss ends a 15-match winning streak for Barty, who was coming off titles at the French Open and Birmingham and was playing her first tournament as No. 1.
