Serena Williams was involved in a rather humorous faux pas as she entered the court to take on world No. 1 Simona Halep, heading onto the Rod Laver Arena when the Romanian's name was being called out. 'I really needed to elevate my game, I had to play like I knew I could and that was hopefully the difference.
Williams has looked in ominous form so far at Melbourne Park as she seeks one more Grand Slam title to put her alongside Margaret Court's record 24 titles. He faces tough opposition from defending champion Roger Federer, while Rafa Nadal aims for his first triumph Down Under since 2009.
Williams showed that she has not lost the ability to lift herself at the crucial times, and did so again when staring at going a break down in the middle of the decider.
Among those looking to halt Serena's charge: world number one Simona Halep, defending champion Caroline Wozniacki and US Open victor Naomi Osaka. "There's definitely something that's innate".
Halep failed to take advantage of three break points in the sixth game and she was made to pay for her profligacy as Williams broke in the next game before successfully serving out the contest.
The seven-time champion will meet Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova, who beat Spain's two-time Grand Slam victor Garbine Muguruza earlier on Monday, in the last eight. This was the first Williams played a world No.1 since 2013 - back then it was Victoria Azarenka. I work so hard, and it's just a miracle that I'm here.
The defeat to Williams leaves Halep at risk of losing her No.1 ranking, with Japan's Naomi Osaka among four rivals who could ascend the summit depending on their remaining results.
"I think she's a good talent".
"I'm feeling great. I always feel good energy here", the 2016 US Open finalist said.
Against Svitolina, she won in straight sets here in the fourth round three years ago, but had to come from a set down in the semi-finals in Tokyo later in the year.
On Monday, Svitolina had her own dip-then-rip, beating Shua Zhang, 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 in just over an hour and a half. Yastremska was in tears after the match but Williams consoled the Ukrainian teenager. I was really happy for her, because everyone was writing her off.
