Wimbledon: Serena Williams makes her charge as top seeds fall

But the title favourite is seven-time champion Serena Williams, seeded 25th after her lengthy maternity leave, and due to face Russian qualifier - and fellow mother - Evgeniya Rodina later on Monday.

Williams hasn't faced a seeded player yet, and she won't on Tuesday, either, instead facing 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Williams, who won the Wimbledon title on her last two visits in 2015 and 2016, is now on an 18-match winning streak at the All England Club.

After a series of upsets in the women's singles tournament at Wimbledon, all of the top-10 seeds from the women's draw have been eliminated.

Seventh seed Karolina Pliskova is the latest big gun to fall, the Czech crashing to a 6-3 7-6 (7-1) to big-hitting Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens. "For me, there's so much further I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

"I'm a perfectionist. I always find something wrong", she said. No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko vs. Dominika Cibulkova, and No. 13 Julia Goerges vs.

Starbucks to phase out single-use plastic straws for sippy cups, alternatives

On the bottom half of the bracket, it'll be 12-time major champion Djokovic against 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori, and No. 2 seed Nadal against either 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.
