Serena Williams wins again at Wimbledon, closes in on Grand Slam No

Serena Williams Alexis Olympia First Steps Wimbledon

Drake distracted Wimbledon viewers on Tuesday as he turned up to support Serena Williams as she battled it out on Centre Court.

But Serena bludgeoned her way out of trouble over the final two sets to stay on course for an eighth All England Club triumph.

"I don't follow tennis", the Italian said when the subject of Williams' return came up before today's quarter-final. It will be important to sort of try to think about the match a little bit ahead, visualize the conditions, being out there. To be here. To be in the semifinals. "I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals", Williams said. "But when it actually happens, it still is, like, 'Wow, this is really happening'".

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

The other matchup on the top half of the draw is No. 9 John Isner against No. 13 Milos Raonic, who beat Federer in the 2016 semifinals before losing in the final.

"I think everybody who is in the quarters played very good tournament so far", Kerber added.

"I'm not looking left or right".

"No. Just to be clear, that was just today. You can be a mom, you can still play tennis and you can still be great". "Honestly, I highly doubt it".

World No 52 Giorgi blasted 20 winners and really took it to Williams, taking the first set thanks to one break, in the sixth game.

Details on Smoove's role in the film have not been released, but Deadline notes that he will play a lead in the ensemble cast. While the plot of the film is still under wraps, we know it will take Holland's Peter Parker overseas during summer vacation.

Kerber, seeded No 11, is now the highest-ranked player remaining in the tournament and is among the favourites to lift the trophy.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

With Angelique Kerber also having made the last four, it is the first time two German women will play in the Wimbledon semi-finals since 1931.

However, Federer has held all of his 55 service games this year and last dropped serve in the semi-finals in 2017 - 81 service games ago.

The 21-year-old 12th seed ended Dominika Cibulkova's inspired run with a 7-5 6-4 win before Kerber outclassed Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 7-5.

(25) S Williams d. She missed past year because of her pregnancy but is on an 18-match winning run at the All England Club.

That is going to change now. And if anyone but Williams wins, it would be their first Wimbledon title. Serena Williams, 51? Eh, it doesn't have that same ring to it. "The "1" part does, but not the '5'".

"Wow, it's pretty awesome", Goerges said. I was just trying to stay focused on my serve. His strengths are massaging the ball around the court with precision so once he found some rhythm he was able to produce some nice points but with no real power there just aren't any free points coming his way. On Tuesday, she received that test, and she passed it with flying colours.

The ICC shared an image of the Test rankings for batsmen which showed the 20-time Grand Slam victor as the number one batsman in the world.
