Guitar man Kevin Anderson wants rhythm not blues against Roger Federer

Dominika Cibulkova

So Bartoli decided not to hit any second serves.

Once Williams had figured out how to break the Giorgi serve, though, in the fourth game of the second set, the momentum changed. Why not take a risk?

Ostapenko was more efficient, serving her match out at love and converting her first match point with her 14th backhand victor.

In doing so, Bartoli joined an exclusive club as one of just nine women (all but two now retired) to beat Williams on the grass at Wimbledon.

In the fourth quarterfinal, 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany faced former French Open semifinalist Kiki Bertens, with both players having reached the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time. "It's really hard to [compete] with a hero".

Serena earned a vital break early in the decider and held on for the next four games, turning to her powerful serve to dig her out of trouble on a few occasions.

But she said: "We do not agree about the best way of delivering our shared commitment to honour the result of the referendum". Gauke said. "The challenge is all very well for people to say I wouldn't do this".

This is Williams' 18th consecutive win at the Championships - she missed last year's tournament as she prepared to have her first child.

Serena Williams recaps her battling win over Italy's Camila Giorgi to advance to the semifinals of Wimbledon. She jumped to a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes.

"I don't follow tennis", the Italian said when the subject of Williams' return came up before today's quarter-final.

Federer will play South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the quarter-final at the All England Club on Wednesday.

Goerges admitted it had been tough playing her close friend and occasional doubles partner on tour.

Federer responded to Tendulkar later in the day, saying that he is ready to take notes right now and there is no need to wait till the end of the tournament.

"Come on!" Williams screamed after clinching the second set with a service victor to level the match at one set apiece.

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.

The destruction further paves the way for Williams to complete her comeback since having a baby, with an eighth title that would draw the 36-year-old level with Margaret Court's all-time record 24 career singles majors.

However, Kerber, beaten by Serena in the 2016 Wimbledon final, doesn't believe Ostapenko will be able to play completely free of anxiety with the title match within touching distance.

"I faced a thousand and three seeds in my life, so I'm okay with that", Williams responded when asked if she would have preferred stiffer tests. In 2013, he beat another Spaniard, David Ferrer, to set up a semi-final meeting with Novak Djokovic, and it just so happens the Serb could be his next challenge at SW19 five years on.
