Alison Riske said she wished she could get married more often after crediting her upcoming nuptials for her barnstorming run at Wimbledon which has earned her a quarter-final date with fellow American Serena Williams. Fundamentally, the reason for the surprisingly lengthy timeframe from Murray appears to be a positive one, with the 32-year-old plotting a long-term return to the sport.
Williams dealt with injuries and illness this year, playing just 12 matches until last week.
"She was really so close to taking the win today, " Williams said.
Williams says "I started seeing a therapist".

"If every time you went in to work, let's say you went into work because., and let's say for a few years your pieces of writing have just been crap every time when you come into Roland Garros".

After breaking Steffi Graf's record for most Grand Slam trophies in the professional era by winning her 23rd at the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant, Williams took time off.
And when asked about the incident in a post-match news conference, Williams explained she is confused as to why she was handed such a high fine, joking she actually has super-human strength like a character in the Avengers film series.
"It's a long, arduous road, " Williams said. "I've never played anyone that has a return like Serena".
Pushed further, she said: "Please don't patronise me".
The quest for a home victor of Wimbledon has been postponed for another year at least after Johanna Konta was defeated in straight sets (7-6, 6-1) by unseeded Czech player Barbora Strycova in Tuesday's quarterfinal in front of an expectant, but ultimately disappointed, Center Court.
