Serena’s victory in singles sets up a round of 16 matchup with former champion Maria Sharapova, who didn’t look quite as sharp in defeating Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic, 7-5, 6-3 in 1 hour and 14 minutes.

The top seeded Williams sisters then went out to court 2 this afternoon, where Serena would again see Cibulkova, who was teamed with Anastasia Pavlyuechenkova of Russia.  The Williams sisters handed their opponents a whipping, 6-1, 6-2 and will now face the winner of Benesova/Strycova versus Vesnina/Zvonareva in the quarter-finals.

Should the Williams sisters defend their doubles crown at Wimbledon, it will mark their fifth consecutive major doubles victory.
