‘This is really happening’: Serena reaches Wimbledon semis

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova Wimbledon set for 'Manic Monday' as 4th round starts

I camped for yesterday's tickets so spent plenty of time on site and around the area to know what's going on. So it's really cool. "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis, and you can still be great".

Ostapenko became the first Latvian woman to make the last four at the All England Club with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Dominika Cibulkova on a windy No. 1 Court.

While heaping praise on Federer and admitting it will be hard to compete with the 20-time Grand Slam victor, Anderson vowed to "take the match to" his opponent.

Goerges will face seven-time champion Serena Williams in the semi-finals on Thursday.

Williams, a 23-time major victor, is hoping to join a select group of women who have won Grand Slams after becoming mothers. He next faces Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the US 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Her path to the title has been wide open from early in the tournament as Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens have all been eliminated.

'I'm a big player, big serve.

The fifth-seeded del Potro failed to convert four match points when serving at 5-4 in the fourth set, but maintained his composure to close out the contest with his first opportunity in the tiebreaker that followed. But he first wants to learn how to play the backhand before teaching Federer how to play the straight drive.

"That's why she was playing finals here".

She probably should have done her homework on Williams, who crushed the upset-minded Italian after dropping the first set. The only different thing is that it's Federer in front of me, and he's a really good opponent.

This isn't the first time the Toronto-bred rapper has been seen supporting Williams. No. 12 Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.

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. By the time she was done, she had hit 20 winners and only 14 unforced errors in a match of high quality on both sides.

When Williams was asked her expectations after winning her first match at Wimbledon in two years, she said, "Not only do I expect to win, I expect to win emphatically".

The 36-year-old is more renowned for defending tennis titles than forward defences, but this dexterous left-handed shot displayed his innate sporting talent.

"I think she said, "I'm sorry", Bertens said.

Then she did a mental check of her right arm: better than good.
