Top seed Serena Williams staged a barnstorming comeback to reach the Australian Open quarter-finals on Monday, defeating Spain's Garbine Muguruza in a three-set dogfight. The American 18-time Grand Slam champion beat the 24th seed 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 to set up a final eight clash with last year's finalist Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia, seeded 11. Muguruza went into the match with a 1-1 record against Williams, including bouncing her from last year's French Open, and showed no signs of nerves against the world number one. An early break in the second set was squandered when Muguruza broke back and again refused to buckle as Williams hammered away at her serve.
