A rock-solid 6-3 6-2 victory over Croatian 19-year-old Ana Konjuh on Centre Court has teed up a quarter-final tussle with Latvia's 20-year-old French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, who was a 6-3 7-6 (8/6) victor against Ukrainian fourth seed Elina Svitolina.
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.
She entered the tournament under a cloud of controversy after the death of Jerome Barson, a 78-year-old man who was involved in a Palm Beach vehicle crash with Williams last month.
Svetlana Kuznetsova reached the last eight for the fourth time, but the first since 2007, with a 6-2 6-4 victory over ninth seed Agnieszka Radwanska. She dropped only three points on her serve in the first set, relying less on power and more on a mixture of spin and placement, allowing the dry hard surface to throw in a degree of disconcerting bounce.
She said: "When I was serving for the match, 5-3, 40-15, I knew if I make a good serve or something, I can win it".
Williams stamped her authority quickly on the second set to break Konjuh and go up 2-1. How many children does she and Andy Murray have, and when did they get married?
After Williams secured a double break to love off the back of a resilient hold, and found herself with three match points.
