Serena Williams admits that she is surprised by her impressive form at the Australian Open, which has seen her drop just eight games in her four matches to date.

Serena Williams has declared that she is surprised by her current level of form after she reached her 35th Grand Slam quarter-final earlier today.

The five-time Australian Open winner thrashed Maria Kirilenko 6-2 6-0 in Melbourne in a match which saw her finish with a first-serve percentage of 87%.

Williams believes that she is playing her best tennis for some time and thinks that she has a good chance of extending her fine record at Melbourne Park.

She said: "I thought I played really well, I didnt expect to play so well, I was like 'wow'. I saw I served 95% in the first set, I was thinking 'Who is this girl? It's not me!'

"I've had a great career, especially here in Australia. Sloane Stephens is playing great, I think she has incredible talent. It will be a tough match but I feel like I have nothing to lose and am playing really well."

Williams goes up against teenager Stephens in an all-American quarter-final later this week.
