The No. 9 seed reached the second week for the seventh straight major, the longest active streak in women's tennis.

It's the first time since 2010 that she reached the fourth round in every major.

However, Williams was eliminated earlier Friday from a chance at the No. 1 ranking when Garbine Muguruza reached the round of 16.
