Wimbledon | Goerges sets up Wimbledon semi-final date with Serena

Just one of over 400 points

In a tournament where the top 10 women's players have been eliminated, Giorgi hadn't faced a seeded player since her first-round win over No. 21 Anastasija Sevastova.

In what was a rare meeting between mothers at this stage of a Grand Slam tournament, Williams was in control throughout a 6-2 6-2 victory.

Some may argue she has yet to face a stiff test here - she has beaten players ranked 105th, 135th, 62nd and now 120th in the world - but they can not argue with the fact she only returned to competitive singles tennis in March and has now reached another Grand Slam quarter-final.

"Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise, to be here, to be in the semi-finals", she said.

"To be here, to be in the semi-finals".

"I don't know what to say right now. But when it actually happens, it still is, like, Wow, this is really happening".

"It's different now obviously because I have the baby".

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.

Serena Williams survived a stiff challenge by Italian Camila Giorgi and won 3/6; 6/3; 6/4 to reach her 11th semi-final in Wimbledon. It's weird. I can't describe it.

The 29-year-old had served more aces (44) and hit more winners (199) than any other player in the first five rounds.

Wimbledon appeared to make their decision on the scheduling after Djokovic requested to play on Centre Court. "'I'll just keep fighting", Williams said. "I'm happy to be in the second week, quarter-finals and now the semi-finals". "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit".

Wimbledon (CNN) Serena Williams may have been out of the grand slam game for roughly 16 months as she started a family, but when her back is against the wall - as one opponent put it last month - the real Serena still comes out.

She next faces 13th-seeded Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-3, 6-2 to secure her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance.

Having crashed out in the first round at Wimbledon for five consecutive times, Goerges' emotions spilled over at the end of the match after she embraced Bertens at the net.

"I think she said, "I'm sorry", Bertens said. I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this. Probably because at the French Open a couple weeks ago I had so much pressure. It's now all gone.

Kerber, a two-time Grand Slam champion, routed 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 Thursday on Centre Court at the All England Club.

"It is a great opportunity to play Serena here where she has won so many times and is a great champion. It's going to be a tough match", Ostapenko said. "I still have a long way to go to be where I was". "I have to be very confident, aggressive, and consistent".
