Serena Williams comes back to reach Wimbledon semifinals

11 July 2018

"No. I mean, to be honest, I am not feeling the pressure because I am not looking on the seeded or who is left or not", she said.

Serena hasn't won a Grand Slam since the birth of daughter Olympia in September and her last trophy came at the 2017 Australian Open.

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

In March, she lost in the first round of the Miami Open to Naomi Osaka, leading to a hasty exit in which she bypassed a postmatch media session.

Bertens followed her shock third round success against five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams by claiming the scalp of Czech seventh seed Pliskova. "But every match starts from zero".

Del Potro held four match points while serving for the victory at 5-4 in the fourth set, but had to wait until the last tiebreaker to advance in 4 hours, 24 minutes, making it the longest men's singles match of the tournament. In a tournament where the top 10 women's players have been eliminated, Giorgi hadn't faced a seeded player since her first-round win over No. 21 Anastasija Sevastova. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set 6-4.

The women's quarterfinals are Tuesday, with Williams vs. Camila Giorgi, two-time major champion Angelique Kerber vs.

Yet Goerges insists she can cause an massive upset against Williams. "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great". I'm going to have to really take it to him. And I feel like I'm back. "I feel good. I feel like I did better today, I had to". "But I feel like I'm back".

US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said there was "no justification" for China's retaliation . China quickly responded by imposing tariffs on $34 billion in USA products.

Next up for the 36-year-old American is a match against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victor against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. Bertens is seeded 20th.

Serena fought back from a set down to defeat the daring Giorgi, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Federer, who plays Kevin Anderson in the quarter-final of the Wimbledon is on course for a ninth title at the iconic All England Club was invited by Tendulkar to exchange notes about cricket after he wins his ninth crown.

But she failed in her bid to become the first Dutchwoman to make the Wimbledon last four since Betty Stove in 1977.

Having cruised through her first four matches here, the question was asked of Serena Williams if she would rather have had a tough test to see exactly where her game is at.

Williams has won her first five matches against unseeded opponents.

Kerber beat Kasatkina on grass at Eastbourne two weeks ago and again she was in control, finishing off the first set easily before landing an early break in the second.
