The Williams sisters are back in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, 16 years after they first made it this far together at the All England Club.

Six-time champion Serena and five-time winner Venus will be playing on Tuesday for spots in the semifinals.

Top-ranked Serena will face No. 21-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on Centre Court in one of the day's four women's quarterfinals. Eighth-seeded Venus was paired against Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan on No. 1 Court.

Australian Open champion and No. 4-seeded Angelique Kerber was scheduled first on Centre Court against No. 5 Simona Halep, with No. 19 Dominika Cibulkova facing Elena Vesnina on No. 1 Court.

One men's fourth-round match still needed to be completed, with No. 10 Tomas Berdych and Jiri Vesely resuming at two sets apiece.
