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

All top-10 women's seeds OUT of Wimbledon before the quarter-finals as Pliskova falls

"I played her a couple times", she said.

Serena Williams' Wimbledon tournament rolls on, as the women's quarterfinals will be without a top-10 player for the first time in the Open era.

"I went for it", Williams said of the serve afterward.

"This is only my fourth tournament back so I don't feel pressure, I don't feel I have to win this. For me, there's so much further I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

Having missed Wimbledon previous year while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

That is going to change now.

The American then cruised through the deciding set with a single break of serve enough to ensure her place in the semi-finals. During the first set of his fourth-round match against Gilles Simon, the Argentine was angry about losing a point and he slammed his racket to the ground before hitting it against his head. "But I think is going to be a good match". "'I'll just keep fighting", Williams said.

Serena Williams recaps her battling win over Italy's Camila Giorgi to advance to the semifinals of Wimbledon.


Ostapenko is within sight of a second grand slam crown in 13 months after surging into the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time.

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

If she gets past that challenge, a match-up with either Kiki Bertens or Julia Goerges will await in the last four.

After clinching the win, Goerges did not celebrate at first, preferring instead to show sympathy with her beaten friend, embracing her with a long hug at the net. "You can be a mom, you can still play tennis, and you can still be great".

But the 23-time major victor is heavily favoured to end her wait this week, fuelled by the thought of suffering the painful sting left by her rare defeats.

She was the aggressor throughout, hitting 33 winners to Cibulkova's six, but also doubling her opponent's unforced error count.

More information about the 26-year-old can be seen below.

On Tuesday, trailing the surprisingly hard-serving Giorgi by a set, Williams fired a 122-mph serve (her fastest all tournament) to start the second set, as if to declare she had no intention of being bounced from Wimbledon just yet. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".
