Serena Williams rallies to reach Wimbledon semifinals

"But when it actually happens, it still is, wow, this is really happening".

"This is only my fourth tournament back, so I don't feel pressure. But I felt good".

"I'm just enjoying the moment".

However, able to look back fondly on the past ten days, Giorgi added: "Of course, I take a lot of positives from the tournament".

In what was a rare meeting between mothers at this stage of a Grand Slam tournament, Williams was in control throughout a 6-2 6-2 victory.

That is going to change now.

Bertens ruthlessIn the other women's match at the All England Club, Kiki Bertens completed the demolition of Wimbledon's top eight women's seeds with a 6-3, 7-6 (1) defeat of Czech Karolina Pliskova to reach the quarter-finals on Monday.

Williams never was anxious about losing. "Even when I was down the first set", Williams who ended with 24 winners and only nine unforced errors, said. But I think she's doing well.

She celebrated and her watching father puffed out his cheeks in relief. "That is where I put my focus on right now, not about the results I had before". "I'm just like an artist and I'm playing with the heart", the likeable Kasatkina said. It appeared nearly to be a reminder to Giorgi, who said on Monday that she doesn't watch women's tennis. She advanced Monday with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Belinda Bencic and will next face Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation. Camila served brilliantly to reduce the tally but the Serena's unrelenting attack sustained the gap to 5-3.

She served for the victory at 5-4 in the second set, but got broken.

The union urged Fiat owners to invest in its workforce to bolster the finances of "thousands of people instead of only one". As captain of the Portuguese team in the 2018 World Cup, he scored four goals, including a hat-trick against Spain.

But from then on the seven-time champion lost only nine more points on serve and finished with three love holds to make an 11th semifinal at the All England Club.

However, injury cut that run short, rendering her unable to serve thanks to a pectoral muscle injury, and denying everyone a clash between Williams and Maria Sharapova.

She is unbeaten at the championships since 2014, winning the title in 2015 and 2016.

Goerges admitted it had been tough playing her close friend and occasional doubles partner on tour. She's also the lowest-ranked woman to reach the last four. Kerber 2-0 in the second set.

Goerges had to do it the hard way after coming from a set down against the Dutch No.20 seed to win 3-6 7-5 6-1 and set up a showdown with the formidable Serena Williams.

Bertens tried to recover and clinched a break of her own but Goerges was not to be denied and levelled the match.

Goerges had gone out in the first round at Wimbledon for the past five years.

Nine-time Wimbledon champion and BBC pundit Martina Navratilova said: "She's been healthy here, hitting the ball hard and the seas have parted for her".

Federer needed just 16 minutes to win the first set and the Swiss never looked back.
