Williams, Isner differ on possible Trump visit at Wimbledon

Serena Williams had to come from a set down to unseeded Italian Camila Giorgi to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the 11th time. I feel god, I feel like I did better today, I had to.

"You never know what to expect from her [Ostapenko]", Cibulkova said.

"I'm just here just to be here, and to prove that I'm back", Williams added.

In his press conference after his fourth-round win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, he was asked about it and admitted he didn't know anything about Trump's visit. "I still have a long way to go to be where I was".

Triumphant in her two previous Wimbledon tilts in 2015 and 2016, Williams's victory also extended her winning streak on the London grass to 19 matches.

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

That is going to change now.

Whereas Rodina seemed overawed by facing Williams on Centre Court in the fourth round, such nerves were not apparent in Giorgi, who benefited from a poor line call to go a break up.

"I think when they play Serena, they try to play their game, but they're just not good enough", Navratilova said. I just kept fighting.

Serena Williams recaps her battling win over Italy's Camila Giorgi to advance to the semifinals of Wimbledon.


Ostapenko struggled with the pressure of defending her maiden Grand Slam title, losing in the first round of the recent French Open.

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

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.

The issue: a pectoral injury that, at the time, left some doubts that she could play at Wimbledon.

Shrieking and clenching her fists after every key point that went her way, Serena let out a gutteral "C'mon" once she wrapped up the set.

She glanced at the monitor that displays service speeds.

Del Potro will hope his second trip to the Wimbledon quarter-finals mimics his first run into the last eight.

Kerber and Kasatkina are the only two women to reach the second week at all three majors this year.

Germany's Goerges came from a set down on Court No 1 to defeat her friend and occasional doubles partner Kiki Bertens, the Dutch No 20 seed.

Williams conceded four games in the entire match as she cruised past Rodina, who was simply unable to compete with the American.
