Serena Williams is continuing her domination of the 2015 Wimbledon tournament, and after beating her sister, Venus Williams, on July 6, she’s ready to take on Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals. Watch their match here!
Wimbledon 2015 is well underway, and Serena Williams, 33, just has to win three more matches to take home her sixth title in the tournament. On July 7, she gets her next chance to advance when she takes on Australian tennis star Victoria Azarenka, 25, in the 2015 quarterfinals. Keep up with Serena’s match by watching the live stream here!
Considering her history and the fact that she’s the No. 1 seed, Serena is favored to win the whole thing, but, of course, she can never get too cocky! Although she beat sister Venus Williams fairly easily in the fourth round, her third round match against England’s Heather Watson went into three sets — and the third’s score was pretty close at 7-5.

And Serena is likely to face a bit of competition with Victoria, who was once ranked No. 1 in the world (she’s currently at No. 23) and has won the Australian Open twice. But Serena’s stats don’t lie — she’s won 20 Grand Slam titles and has had a pretty good history at Wimbledon, taking home the trophy in 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2012. The ladies have faced off a Wimbledon before, in 2009 and 2012, and Serena won both times.
The tennis superstar won her most recent title at the beginning of June, beating Lucie Safarova at the French Open. In Jan. 2015, she also won this year’s Australian Open. So, yes, Serena is most definitely on a hot streak right now — will she be able to keep it up?!
