Julia Goerges advances to Wimbledon semi-final to face Serena Williams

"I still have a long way to go to be where I was".

All remaining men's and women's singles title challengers are in action, with a Centre Court lineup that includes Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal. She missed Wimbledon a year ago because she was pregnant, going about 16 months between Grand Slam tournaments, so her ranking is just outside the top 180.

Rare is the player who can produce Williams' sort of pace on serves - Giorgi's average speeds were actually faster on first and second serves, and she delivered the match's first three aces - and mirror her power in groundstroke exchanges at the baseline.

There were no signs of stage-fright from Giorgi in her first Grand Slam quarter-final as she took the first set.

She now has a 39-35 record when losing the first set at a major.

Shrieking and clenching her fists after every key point that went her way, Serena let out a gutteral "C'mon" once she wrapped up the set.

It's okay, Serena, just keep your eyes on the prize at Wimbledon!

Maradona had said England's win was a "monumental robbery" and that Geiger "shouldn't be given a match of this magnitude". Uruguay attacked thereafter but never looking likely to recover. " France are still inconsistent".

On Wednesday, Federer will play No. 8 Kevin Anderson, a South African who was the 2017 U.S. Open runner-up and advanced with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 5-7, 7-6 (4) victory over Gael Monfils. From then on, the result felt inevitable as she served beautifully, levelling the match and then, after a stunning backhand to break for 2-1 in the decider, she eased through the set, serving out to love to take her place in the last four.

Wimbledon prize money: How much can players earn in 2018?

Rebounding from her shock first-round elimination in her Roland Garros title defence, Ostapenko has marched through the Wimbledon draw without dropping a set.

Kerber and Kasatkina are the only two women to reach the second week at all three majors this year. The German beat 3-6 7-5 6-1 Kiki Bertens, who could move as high as No.17 by reaching the quarterfinals.

In a match that featured eight breaks of serve - four in the first five games - Ostapenko was able to elevate her game in the crucial moments. "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

Four of the first five games went against serve before 12th seed Ostapenko's game finally caught fire in the 11th game when she broke Cibulkova to love with a blazing backhand down-the-line victor. The 36-year-old American, who has spent more than 300 weeks ranked No. 1, looks superb so far.
