Serena Williams's next opponent: I don't like women's game

Serena Williams's next opponent: I don't like women's game

Williams was seeded 25th by the All England Club, a nod to all of her past success at the grass-court major, including titles the last two times she entered it, in 2015 and 2016.

After a series of upsets in the women's singles tournament at Wimbledon, all of the top-10 seeds from the women's draw have been eliminated.

Ostapenko struck 32 winners to just six from her opponent and won 7-5 6-4 in an hour and 22 minutes to set up a last-four clash against Angelique Kerber.

The 36-year-old williams will face Julia Goerges in the semifinals on Thursday. "After the first set, I just said, 'Let's go three sets.' I just kept fighting".

Since returning to tennis to reclaim her place at the top of the rankings following giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian in September, Serena Williams has been honest about the struggle it's been to balance work and motherhood. Plus, at Wimbledon in particular, she lost in the first round each of the past five years. Meanwhile, today will be Jelena Ostapenko and Angelique Kerber's first meeting.

"Sometimes I feel, 'Man, I'm in trouble, ' she said after the match".

Williams missed last year's Wimbledon as she was pregnant with her first child.

On Wednesday, the 29-year-old will be playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2013, when he went on to lose to Novak Djokovic in an epic semi-final.

Shot making and shot selection produced a clear gameplan for the fifth Italian woman to clinch the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, watched by the Fed Cup captain Tathiana Garbin, the first Italian player to beat a reigning world No.1 at WTA level (she defeated Justine Henin at 2004 French Open).

Going a break down elicited a typically angry response from Williams, who surged into a 40-0 lead on Giorgi's serve in the subsequent game.

"Every match starts from zero", Goerges said of her semifinal matchup against Williams. "I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back". "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".

Williams dropped her first set at this tournament as the 52nd-ranked Giorgi produced an impressive display of power and accuracy in the opener. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets.
