Keep calm and carry on: Williams serene at Wimbledon

Keep calm and carry on: Williams serene at Wimbledon

"To be here. To be in the semifinals. But when it actually happens, it still is, wow, this is really happening". And I feel like I'm back. Surely there wasn't a lot of long points, maybe that's why I wasn't out of breath. That year, Cilly Aussem and Hilde Krahwinkel went on to set up the only all-German women's final in Grand Slam history.

That is going to change now.

However, Williams bludgeoned her way out of trouble, winning 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to stay on course for an eighth All England Club triumph. "I'm fighting until the end and I'm gaining more confidence".

Williams never was anxious about losing.

And US pop star Justin Timberlake could not resist the chance to see Serena take to her Centre Court stage for the Giorgi match either, given he has been in London for a pair of shows at The O2.

Two successive aces, clocked at 103 and 106 miles per hour, gave the 21-year-old the first set and the 2017 French Open champion tightened her grip on the contest when she ended another flurry of breaks to go 4-2 up in the second.

"I'm hoping this is like a new thing".

However, Williams lifted her intensity to level, before closing out the match to move a step closer to reclaiming the title she won in 2016.

'I'm looking forward now to the semis here. "But I feel like every time I lose, I get better", she said.

The Dutchwoman's 6-3 7-6 (1) win means that for the first time since seedings were introduced at Wimbledon in 1927 none of the top eight in the women's draw made the quarter-finals. She had to come from behind, but now Serena Williams is headed to the semifinals.

The Slovak player downing Hsieh Su-Wei in straight sets, 6-4 6-1, to reach the quarter-finals for a third time.

Rapper Drake was part of Williams' entourage on Centre Court, but the American was coy on when her friend Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, might be coming to watch.

Kerber was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2016, when she surged to No. 1 in the world rankings after winning the Australian Open and US Open.

In the seventh, however, she completed a stunning 12th game and celebrated a huge win. "This is only my fourth tournament back", she said.

The 30-year-old slipped out of the world's top 20 after a miserable 2017 but has rediscovered her game this year.

After going a couple of weeks without hitting a serve, Williams has regained her ability with that stroke nicely at Wimbledon.

Goerges, who had never played in a quarter-final of a Major before these Championships, defeated Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1 on Court 1.

"I didn't expect it, honestly", said Goerges, who lost in the first round at the All England Club each of the past five years.

The star athlete went on to marry Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian a year ago (17). After losing the first set, Williams was able to turn her game around and defeat Giorgi.

Williams said: "I felt good to get through it because it was a tough match".
