Kerber to face Ostapenko in Wimbledon semifinal

Dominika Cibulkova

I'm always striving for perfection. "But when it actually happens, it still is, like, 'Wow, this is really happening'".

So what if she's still getting her game in gear?

So what if Giorgi wouldn't seem to miss while moving out to that early lead?

"No. Just to be clear, that was just today".

"She was moving me very much". "Honestly, I highly doubt it".

"I knew going in it was not going to be an easy match", said Williams, who now plays 13th seed Julia Goerges of Germany, who beat Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 over on Court No 1.

The carnage at the top leaves 11th seed Angelique Kerber - beaten by Serena in the 2016 Wimbledon final - as the highest ranked player left. With a 9th Wimbledon title on the cards, Federer looks in ruthless form and has now won 32 consecutive sets to reach the last 8 of the competition.

In the last men's quarter-final, which was suspended because of darkness after the third set Monday night, 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro defeated Gilles Simon of France 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5), 5-7, 7-6 (5).

Brexit crisis - what's next for Theresa May?
But she said: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honour the result of the referendum". In her resignation letter she echoed the words of Sir Michael, saying her actions "fell below the high standards" expected.

None of the top 10 women's seeds remain in the tournament. 11, 12 and 13 are still around. And so is No. 25, Williams. But despite how close she is to another title and the record books, Williams is insistent that she doesn't need to win here in order to feel like her comeback has gotten off to a successful start.

When Williams was asked her expectations after winning her first match at Wimbledon in two years, she said, "Not only do I expect to win, I expect to win emphatically".

Three years younger, three inches shorter and far less powerful, Marion Bartoli knew she had to do something extraordinary to have a chance against Serena Williams in their fourth-round meeting at Wimbledon in 2011.

Serena Williams hopes her daughter Alexis Olympia does not want to follow in her mother's famous footsteps. "The "1" part does, but not the '5'". Williams is 3-0 against Giorgi in the singles format.

"I would try to give her shots that she doesn't like: the slice, the little dink", said Navratilova, 61. "Keep on going, you can do this".

Federer over-hit a backhand and when his opponent courteously returned the ball, the eight-time Wimbledon champion elected to display his cricket skills, with a punched forward defence, which didn't go unnoticed by Wimbledon's social media accounts. On Tuesday, she received that test, and she passed it with flying colours. Williams will next face Italy's Camila Giorgi, who beat American Madison Brengle 6-4, 6-4. He's played there a few more times than that. She won a Grand Slam, as well.

Well, for a set, anyway.
