  • Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

But Serena bludgeoned her way out of trouble, winning 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to stay on course for an eighth All England Club triumph.

'The more I can just treat it like another tennis match, the better for me. "Sometimes I feel I can fight". For whatever reason, today I was so calm. "I want to play a lovely match, be consistent and play my tennis", said Giorgi.

"I mean, I'm definitely going to have to look at it the right way. It is what it is'". "I don't know. I actually would not be able to do that". "Being a mom is totally different", she said. Hopefully, it doesn't come full circle and my gloating come back to haunt me in the shape of Anderson playing lights out!

She is first on Centre Court against Daria Kasatkina for her quarter-final clash this afternoon.

Ahead of the big game in London, Williams admitted to "Good Morning America" that her body had changed after the baby.

When Serena broke again for a 2-1 lead in the final set, the American whirled and pumped her arms.

With Kerber also advancing, it is the first time two German women will play in the Wimbledon semifinals since 1931.


With Olympia's arrival and her marriage to husband Alexis both taking place since Serena was last at Wimbledon, this year's campaign has a unique feel. "It's been a while since I've won a championship", Williams said. She didn't provide much perspective after the match, but insisted she was happy with her performance.

Another added: 'jeez Drake... you gonna come to her work and errrrthing?' She won a Grand Slam, as well. She appeared emotional and relieved at the match's conclusion as she clinched her fists in victory and took a deep breath while smiling proudly. She never backed down from a challenge. She is also looking to win her 24th Grand Slam, which would tie the all-time record (men's or women's) set by Margaret Court. ". I would try to go around her more, rather than through her".

And she wasn't the only one to mastermind a comeback from a set down, either, as semi-final opponent Goerges also took the more hard route to ousting Bertens.

However, Federer has held all of his 55 service games this year and last dropped serve in the semi-finals in 2017 - 81 service games ago. We're starting from zero.

The All England Club seeded her there as a nod to all of her past success at the grass-court major, including titles the last two times she entered, in 2015 and 2016.

"I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back".

Goerges had failed to make it past the fourth round of any major before this tournament, and her best Wimbledon finishes were third-round appearances in 2010 and 2011.
