Wimbledon: Serena into semis after fighting back to beat unheralded opponent

Jelena Ostapenko beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus in straight sets

That's all what Serena needed to manage her following service games towards victory.

So what if Giorgi wouldn't seem to miss while moving out to that early lead? In February 2017, the star accidentally announced that she was expecting her first child via Snapchat. "Every time I play Giorgi, she always plays that level, but she plays like that against everybody". "Honestly, I highly doubt it".

Angelique Kerber clinched her third appearance in the Wimbledon semi-finals with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina.

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. Consider, too, that the other 15 women in fourth-round action Monday own a combined three major trophies: Angelique Kerber has two, Jelena Ostapenko the other.

Anderson, Isner and Nishikori all reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time. Ostapenko won last year's French Open.

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. With the top 10 women having all been eliminated, No 11 Angela Kerber is the highest-seeded player left in the tournament. 11, 12 and 13 are still around.

After claiming a 19th consecutive match win at the tournament she won in 2015 and 2016 but missed previous year, she said she still had a way to go to regain her top level.

Theresa May must fight for her position after 'remarkable' Davis resignation
The Press Association news agency, the BBC and others said Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned Sunday. Conservative MP David Davis arrives at Downing Street on July 13, 2016 in London , England.

That is going to change now. "The "1" part does, but not the '5'".

Williams is 3-0 against Goerges, winning in straight sets each time.

'Wow, it's pretty wonderful, ' Goerges said afterwards. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".

She went a couple of weeks without practicing serves, and the rest did wonders.

Williams faces Italy's Camila Giorgi in the quarterfinals at 7 a.m. Tuesday at the All England Club. However, Giorgi came through a huge test of character as she saved three break points and then a fourth with the help of a fierce forehand as she earned an important hold.

The Italian's comments ahead of the match that she does not follow tennis will have raised eyebrows but, competing in her first Grand Sam quarterfinal, she troubled Williams significantly with her movement and power and took the first set. She seemed undaunted by the stage or the opponent.
