Ultimately, Williams found a way to win 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, but Giorgi gave her all she could handle. "I'm going to go out there and just do what I can, do my best, see what happens". It didn't take long for her to rebound, a lovely volley restoring her break advantage at 4-3.

Serena Williams is back in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the 13th time after beating Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina, 6-4, 6-2.

The one time Williams lost a service game, cutting her second-set lead to 3-2, she broke right back at love to start a three-game streak that ended things.

"It was tougher than the scoreline, " Williams said.

"I'm getting there. I don't think I'm there yet". So it's really cool.

"I played Julia in the French".

To view the partial eclipse, people should wear proper glasses to protect their eyes from the Sun. The eclipse will be a partial one - when the Moon slips past, only partially concealing the Sun.

When Williams hit a forehand long to hand Giorgi the set, it looked possible that her quest for a 24th and possibly most remarkable Grand Slam title might be in peril.

Cibulkova looks like a woman on a mission having been the player who missed out on a seeding after Serena Williams was parachuted in at number 25.

Next up for Williams as she tries to earn her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall will be a match Thursday against No. 13 seed Julia Goerges of Germany, a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victor against No. 20 Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

Bertens, a French Open semi-finalist in 2016, is into the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time.

She will now face Julia Goerges for the second time in as many Slams, but it was during that match that she picked up the injury that cut short her Slam come-back, But today we saw a return to the serving speeds of 122mph.

Bertens and Pliskova had reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time.

Isner reaches Wimbledon semi-finals after victory over Raonic
Given the length of this match, it may well prove hard for Djokovic and Nadal to complete their contest on Friday. Anderson will play again in the final on Sunday - hopefully there, a victor will be decided in four sets or less.

Cibulkova will face Jelena Ostapenko after the Latvian, last year's French Open victor, beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich 7-7 (7/4) 6-0.

"Even when I was down the first set, I thought she's playing great". Partly due to Giorgi's aggressive style of play - which has in no small part got her to the last eight, she didn't regret taking that style of play to Williams, saying: "No, it's my game, that is why I'm playing well today, so no, I don't regret anything".

The other semifinal Thursday will be No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany vs.

The 12th seed, Jelena Ostapenko prevailed over world number 33, Dominika Cibulkova 7/5; 6/4. Kerber served for the victory at 5-4 in the second set, but got broken.

"She was moving me very much". "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

After seven minutes, the decision was finally changed and the point replayed. Ostapenko double faults at breakpoint as Kerber clinches the first set 6-3.
