Williams has now won all but one of her nine meetings with Hantuchova
Defending champion Serena Williams claimed her place in the US Open quarter-finals with a 6-2 6-0 demolition of Daniela Hantuchova.
The American, who plays in the doubles with sister Venus later on Sunday, completed the first half of her day's work in just over an hour.
Her Slovak opponent, seeded 22, offered some initial resistance before being broken in the first set's sixth game.
From that point she could not muster another game and slumped to defeat.
Williams will play either Vera Zvonareva or Flavia Pennetta in the last eight.
