Williams, Federer reach quarterfinals at Wimbledon

Kiki Bertens celebrates victory against Venus Williams Kiki Bertens celebrates victory against Venus Williams

So what if Giorgi wouldn't seem to miss while moving out to that early lead?

John Isner is the only remaining American in the men's bracket. "I want to play a handsome match, be consistent and play my tennis", said Giorgi.

"No. Just to be clear, that was just today". That variety and injection of pace made Mannarino so unsure of his game and like I've said many times before Fed's brand of tennis is just so unique. "Honestly, I highly doubt it".

Yet Goerges insists she can cause an massive upset against Williams.

The other semifinal is No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber of Germany vs.

Bertens, who was contemplating retirement past year after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, is the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets.

Kerber will next face 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, who became the first Latvian woman to reach a Wimbledon semifinal with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Dominika Cibulkova. 11, 12 and 13 are still around.

Williams has won her first five matches against unseeded opponents.

Drake scores his eighth No. 1 album on Billboard's chart with 'Scorpion'
According to executives, Drake could easily command a per-album advance of $15 million to $20 million if he signs to a major. It racked up 745.92 million USA online plays in its first week, the highest streaming debut for any artist ever.

Dutch tennis star Kiki Bertens followed up her victory over Venus Williams at Wimbledon last week by knocking out seventh seed Karolína Plísková in straight sets.

Rebounding from her shock first-round elimination in her Roland Garros title defence, Ostapenko has marched through the Wimbledon draw without dropping a set.

Drake has been spotted supporting his rumoured ex-girlfriend Serena Williams at Wimbledon. "The "1" part does, but not the '5'". The Italian came from 0-40 down to hold for 5-3 and then, despite a double-fault, she held to take the set.

'It really comes down to me, as I said, doing my best to treat it like another tennis match, and really trusting each and every process I've got; my routines in between points, getting ready for the match. "I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back".

"I don't want her to have pressure from what I did, you guys talking about, 'are you going to be able to do as good as your mom?' I don't want her to have that".

After going a couple of weeks without hitting a serve, Williams has regained her ability with that stroke nicely at Wimbledon.

"I messed up too much on my returns", said Giorgi, questioning her decision to stand inside the baseline to receive serve.

Williams, who has a kind run through to the semi-finals, will next take on Camila Giorgi of Italy.
