It’s another dominating tournament run for Serena Williams! The tennis pro has advanced to the Quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2016, and will take on Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on July 5. Watch a live stream of the sure-to-be epic match to find out if she can win again right here!
Serena Williams, 34, has had a tough time finishing in Grand Slam tournaments this year, but she’s currently making a run for another victory at Wimbledon. In order to take home the title, though, she still has to win three more matches, and that begins with her July 5 Quarterfinal game against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 25. Check out a live stream of the match online right here!
After a dominating 7-5 and 6-0 victory against Svetlana Kuznetsova in the fourth round, Serena has advanced to the Quarterfinals, where she’ll take on the No. 21 seed in hopes of moving on even further. Despite a rough start during her match versus Svetlana, Serena finished just as you’d expect the World No. 1 to, and she’s expected to bring that fire into this next match.
It’s been a rough go throughout 2016 so far, as Serena lost in the Finals of both the Australian Open and the French Open, so she’s definitely overdue for a title win. The 34-year-old, who has won 21 major tournaments as a singles player, is still after Steffi Graf’s record of 22, which she would tie if she’s able to sail through Wimbledon and win.
Of course, the road won’t be easy. If Serena can beat Anastasia, she’ll take on the winner of Dominikia Cibulkova (No. 19) and Elena Vesnina’s match, and in the Finals, she’d have to play either Simona Halep, Angelique Kerber, Venus Williams (yep, her own sister!), or Yarsolava Shvedova. Make sure you follow along to see how she does!
