Photos from the Australian Open: Serena makes it 19

Serena Williams has added another win to her already-impressive head-to-head record against Maria Sharapova, clinching her 19th win over the popular Russian in Melbourne on Tuesday.

Even though Sharapova managed to start off their 21st meeting with a break and had a breakpoint at 4-4 in the first set, Williams managed to keep the upper hand in the late stages of the first set, cruising to a straight-set win that was never in doubt during the second set.

In the day’s other quarterfinal, Agnieszka Radwanska swept by Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro. After a very quick first set in favor of the crafty Polish player, Suarez Navarro managed to make it a bit more difficult for Radwanska in the second set, never getting to a point where she could actually turn the match around though.

The remaining two quarterfinals of the 2016 Australian Open are due to be played tomorrow as the surprise quarter-finalists Johanna Konta & Shuai Zhang meet while Victoria Azarenka and Angelique Kerber will face off for a rematch of the Brisbane final.
