Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon semis

Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon semis

"It was a good win but it was tougher than the scoreline to be honest". 'I don't know what to say right now. So it's really cool.

As you can imagine, people were surprised at her lack of any comment or observation about one of the greatest players in the history of the game. The German had suffered five successive first-round defeats at Wimbledon before this year and had clocked up 42 grand slam appearances without progressing beyond the fourth round.

The 90th Wimbledon win of her career - the most among active female players - means Serena, now 181st in the WTA rankings, will return to the top 100 next week.

The 31-year-old rapper cheered on Williams during her quarterfinal match at Wimbledon against Camila Giorgi on Tuesday, where he was clearly completely invested in the game judging by his passionate reactions from the stands.

The Dutchwoman's 6-3 7-6 (1) win means that for the first time since seedings were introduced at Wimbledon in 1927 none of the top eight in the women's draw made the quarter-finals.

On Monday, Williams and Isner advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals, leaving them as the only American singles players who could still be in the tournament when Trump's visit to the United Kingdom begins Thursday.

2009 U.S. Open champion Del Potro defeated Gilles Simon 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5) in a match that was carried over to Tuesday to complete the men's quarterfinal lineup at the All England Club.

Leading 5-4 and two points away from taking the first set at 0-30 on Hsieh's serve, Cibulkova struck a backhand onto the baseline that was called out.

After seven minutes, the decision was finally changed and the point replayed. If she missed her first serve, she'd simply blast another first serve with all her might, rather than a high-percentage second serve, and not worry about double-faulting. I think it's super exciting.

Kerber takes on Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko in the other semifinal. It worked in her favor in the early-going: The 52nd-ranked Giorgi, 26, became the first to win a set against Williams in the tournament.

It may be that today, for the first time, Serena Williams does not manage to intimidate her opponent before a ball is struck.

It is the third time Kerber has reached the last four at Wimbledon, where she was runner-up in 2016.

The 21-year-old is the only female player yet to drop a set in this year's tournament.
