Wimbledon-2018: Serena, Kerber and Ostapenko made it to the semifinals

Serena Williams rallies to reach Wimbledon semifinals So easy for Serena as she rolls into quarter-finals
Shannon Reynolds | 14 July, 2018, 00:57

The 90th Wimbledon win of her career - the most among active female players - means Serena, now 181st in the WTA rankings, will return to the top 100 next week.

Serena Williams raced into her 13th Wimbledon quarter-final as the seven-time champion thrashed Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 6-2, 6-2 in just 62 minutes on Monday.

Williams will face Italian world number 52 Camila Giorgi in the last eight, with the victor going on to face either Bertens or Germany's Julia Goerges in the semi-finals. Sometimes I feel, Man, I'm in trouble.

"This is only my fourth tournament back, so I don't feel pressure". It was just the way I felt today. I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this. It's weird. I can't describe it. "I know a lot of people won't like that, but I don't care". Honestly, I highly doubt it.

Having shaken off the rust following her lengthy lay-off after the complications with Olympia's birth, Serena is on the verge of a 30th Grand Slam final berth.

Williams lifted her intensity in the second set, avoiding any break points as she secured one break of her own. It was a fearless performance that offered Williams one of her toughest tests since returning.

Another German, Angelique Kerber, admitted nerves nearly got the better of her after needing seven match points to see off Daria Kasatkina. I always find something. Shouldn't really happen, but thankfully they do for me.

The 2011 French Open and 2014 Australian Open champion is not tempted to make a comeback of her own, as she watches seven-time Wimbledon victor Williams compete at the All England Club for the first time since the United States great won the 2016 title.

It is not as if Serena Williams needs much encouragement to dominate at Wimbledon, where she has already reached nine finals. That year, Cilly Aussem and Hilde Krahwinkel went on to set up the only all-German women's final in Grand Slam history.

In February, in her first competitive match in more than a year, she moved slowly while playing a Fed Cup doubles match with her sister, Venus.

"Every match starts from zero", Goerges said. "I play a great level today", she said. After the first set, I just said, let's go three sets.

Isner is through to the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time, where the ninth seed faces Canada's Milos Raonic on Wednesday. She hasn't had to try very hard to win her points against an error-prone Ostapenko. Julia Goerges is hoping she can pull off a massive upset against the American - despite losing to her five weeks ago at the French Open.

Nadal, a two-time champion at the All England Club, has yet to drop a set in this tournament.

"I am fighting till the end and it helps me gain more confidence".

"It was great matches", Giorgi said in her postmatch news conference. This was a match which I maybe should have won, if I maybe play a little bit better I can win. "It's so much fun". The issue: a pectoral injury that, at the time, left some doubts that she could play at Wimbledon. "For whatever reason, I was so calm", Williams said.
