WORLD number one Serena Williams remained on track for her 60th career title as she powered past Peng Shuai 6-2 6-3 in Madrid.

It has been a patchy season for the American, who won the Miami Masters in March, but followed that by exiting in the early rounds in Charleston.

Having taken a month out to rediscover her form she looked strong against Peng, ranked 42 in the world, winning eight of the first nine points to break serve.

Williams was dominant on her serve and the Chinese failed to unsettle her. Williams now faces a quarter-final against Spanish No 1 Carla Suarez Navarro, who beat Alison Riske 6-2 6-4.
