Serena into semis after fighting back to beat Giorgi

Jelena Ostapenko beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus in straight sets

In the opposite half of the draw sits Serena Williams, who is seeded No 25 despite being ranked 183rd in the world.

Williams, who has a kind run through to the semi-finals, will next take on Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Seven-times champion Serena Williams prevailed in a Centre Court mothers' meeting on Monday, roaring past Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina into the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

"I don't know what I did", Williams said in a post-game press conference. "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit". "You still have to beat the players".

The key game was when Williams powered to a 2-1 lead in the decisive set, against the serve, without conceding a point. You could understand the 13th seed's bewilderment, after she came from a set down against Kiki Bertens to win 3-6, 7-6, 6-1. It's also a first for any Grand Slam tournament in the 50-year professional era.

The absence of the top 10 seeds leaves the tournament open, but for some that is no surprise. He next faces Raonic, who defeated Mackenzie McDonald of the USA 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-2.

Hsieh protested, leading the match referee to come on to discuss the decision with the umpire as calls of "replay the point" came from a bemused crowd on Court 18.

Even though France has a young team, they also have a very experienced player on the team, the goalkeeper , Hugo Lloris . It is a tactic that has become a hallmark of both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur over the last two years.

They clapped and yelled when Federer's drop volley capped a 16-minute tour de force of a first set in which he won 21 of the first 23 points.

"It never happened to me that the umpire changed the decision", Cibulkova said. The only different thing is that it's Federer in front of me, and he's a really good opponent.

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.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich. "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

It also took her until her 42nd Grand Slam appearance to finally get through to the last four at a major.

Asked what she likes the most about the way Williams plays, Giorgi responded: "I don't follow tennis".

"I feel like I'm getting to where I want to be", Williams said. "In this tournament, she seems to be in the right mood".
