Right, we're on to the next. We await World No.1 Serena Williams who is chasing Stefi Graf's 22 Grand Slam wins record, and is taking on Margarita Gasparyan. I'm not a gambling woman, but...

Watch full highlights of the match:
Williams will play Sharapova in the Quarter Finals, who she's beaten 17 times in a row, says our commentator. Again, I'm not a gambling woman...

If there is any knee injury, it doesn't seem to be bothering Serena much. "I knew I had to play really strong today" says Williams of her opponent who's "honoured" to play in front of Margaret Court (who returns the compliment with a little wave).

Williams 6-2 6-1 Gasparyan. Well that was mercifully (or perhaps "mercilessly", if you're Margarita Gasparyan) brief. Game set and match to a beyond-focussed Serena Williams.

WIlliams 6-2 5-1 Gasparyan. If Serena Williams makes it to the final, and let's face it, we've no reason to think she wouldn't despite talk of injury before the contest, it'll be her tenth Australian Open final. She's well on her way now, serving for the match.
Williams 6-2 4-1 Gasaryan. We are 47 minutes in, possibly with just two games left. Composed is not the word to describe WIlliams who is silently taking Gasaryan apart.
Williams 6-2 3-1 Gasaryan. This will be over very quickly. Or at least I hope it will if it's going to continue like this, it's not up there for entertainment value, truth be told.

Williams 6-2 1-1 Gasparyan. We're not getting much in the way of rallies here, serves tend to end pretty quickly with Serena winning the point or someone fluffing it.

Williams 6-2 1-0 Gasaryan. Serena WIlliams seems so very focussed. You could hear a pin drop on court.

Williams 6-2 Gasparyan. Williams - who is being watched by Margaret Court herself . (Her record is 24 Grand Slam titles) - wins the first set without flinching.

Williams 5-2 Gasparyan. 26 minutes in and Gasparyan is already serving to save the set. Williams seems pretty relaxed, despite the oft-mentioned record she must be hoping to level.
Williams 4-2 Gasparyan. Gasparyan may not be as powerful as Serena but she's got a decent serve, as she doles out another ace.

Williams 4-1 Gasparyan. There's another ace from Williams, we knew it wouldn't take long. An overhead volley puts paid to that game - it's all a bit too easy for the World No.1.

Williams 3-1 Gasparyan. Gasparyan has two aces to Williams' 1, doesn't matter, she's broken again.
Williams 1-1 Gasparyan. Gasparyan's service is no match for the mighty Williams, who breaks straight back.

Williams 0-1 Gasparyan. Um, Serena Williams just broke her own serve there, I think. A catalogue of errors.
Williams to serve first
