Serena into semis after fighting back to beat Giorgi
14 July, 2018, 05:17 | Author: Tommie Newton
Williams reached an 11th semi-final at Wimbledon, despite dropping her first set at this year's championships against Camila Giorgi on Tuesday.
Next up for the 36-year-old American is a match against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victor against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.
Kerber needed seven match points to close out No. 14 Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-3, 7-5 at Centre Court, while Ostapenko defeated 2014 Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 7-5, 6-4 on a windy No. 1 Court.
Williams won Wimbledon on her last two visits in 2015 and 2016 before missing last year's event due to her pregnancy.
"I faced a thousand and three seeds in my life, so I'm okay", she said. Pliskova was beaten 6-3, 7-6 (1) by No. 20 Kiki Bertens, who eliminated Williams' sister, Venus, last week.
Williams is playing in her 11th semifinal at the tournament.
And even less so that eight-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is one of them, even if it is just 10 months since she gave birth.
Asked what she likes the most about the way Williams plays, Giorgi responded: "I don't follow tennis".
Rodina, who like Williams combines a tennis career with motherhood, looked overawed at first as she went 3-0 down. In front of a Centre Court crowd that included Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Drake, Giorgi stood inside the baseline to return the Williams serve, never yielding ground and pushing the American to withstand her power.
Not one top-10 seed has made the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.
Kerber and Ostapenko is the more intriguing of the two semi-final clashes, with little to choose between the two in terms of style and confidence.
By the time a Goerges drop-shot drifted into net to present Serena with the decisive break in the sixth game of the second set, the contest had already been sapped of any drama and moments later the title favourite was waving to the crowd in celebration. Julia Goerges is hoping she can pull off a massive upset against the American - despite losing to her five weeks ago at the French Open.
"It was just the way I felt today".
In June, she was a match away from the French Open quarterfinals before withdrawing from the tournament an hour before her anticipated match against Maria Sharapova. "For me, there's so much farther I want to go to get back where I was - and hopefully go beyond that".
The present state of German tennis is looking fine at the moment, with both former finalist Angelique Kerber and now Julia Goerges reaching the semi-finals. A good start for her. Ostapenko double faults at breakpoint as Kerber clinches the first set 6-3.
Giorgi, in her first grand slam quarter-final, was trying to become the first ever Italian woman to make the semi-finals here. "It's great to be in the semis", Ostapenko said.
Li said she did not miss playing on the tour, but did miss the rough and tumble of testing herself against the best.
