Serena Williams continues to close in on a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown after advancing to her 11th Wimbledon semifinal.

Williams is playing only her fourth tournament since becoming a mother for the first time.

So Bartoli decided not to hit any second serves.

Whether it was a forward defensive shot or a back-foot cut, the eight-time champion's technique impressed the International Cricket Council. Why not take a risk? "It's really hard to [compete] with a hero".

The worst news for her next opponent, Italy's Camila Giorgi, is that Serena believes there is more to come.

She served for the victory at 5-4 in the second set, but got broken. "I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this", Williams said. I'm definitely going to have to bring that on Wednesday'.

"That's why she was playing finals here". She had never even got to the quarter-finals of a major tournament before, let alone the semi-finals.

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

Serena fought back from a set down to defeat the daring Giorgi, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Goerges also battled back from a set down to beat Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1 in the last of the women's quarterfinals.

Julia Goerges dropped her racket and froze temporarily on No1 Court at the magnitude of reaching her first grand slam semi-final.

Hsieh protested, leading the match referee to come on to discuss the decision with the umpire as calls of "replay the point" came from a bemused crowd on Court 18. "I do follow women's tennis", she said pointedly.

While some BBC analysts applauded Giorgi's go-for-broke approach Tuesday, nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova, who's covering the tournament for Tennis Channel, isn't convinced that answering power with power is the best approach against Williams.

It was Serena's 100th career main draw victory on grass.

That's how she would take on Williams, if they were contemporaries. 'Each of us, seeded or not, I'm not seeded, we're just here to do our best.

But Giorgi plays with nary a trace of subtlety and more than a bit of abandon, taking risky, flat chops at the ball with serves, returns, forehands and backhands. "I'll coach her, but I don't want to travel". It's like all the other women that are still in the draw. She said that, like, yesterday or the day before.

So what if she's still getting her game in gear?

"I thought it was a good scoreline", Williams told the BBC after the match.

"You need the total package". "It was really ridiculous for me".
