Serena Williams battles back to beat Camila Giorgi at Wimbledon

Bertens storms through to Wimbledon quarter-finals against Pliskova

I feel god, I feel like I did better today, I had to.

Williams said she would not want her daughter to have to grow up being compared to her mother. "I'm here just to prove that I'm back, and I feel like I'm back".

"After five years of first-round losses here, I think I've grown a lot to get to the semi-finals". But despite how close she is to another title and the record books, Williams is insistent that she doesn't need to win here in order to feel like her comeback has gotten off to a successful start.

Williams won Wimbledon on her last two visits in 2015 and 2016 before missing last year's event due to her pregnancy.

That is going to change now.

The 26-year-old faces German 13th seed Julia Goerges or Croatian world number 55 Donna Vekic on Tuesday. As she figured, she would lose the point anyway if she gifted Williams a weak second-serve.

It may be that today, for the first time, Serena Williams does not manage to intimidate her opponent before a ball is struck. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set 6-4.

"After the first set, I was like, 'All right, let's go three sets.' And that's kind of what I thought".

After losing the first set in the quarterfinals Tuesday, Serena Williams looked dejected and confused.

Serena Williams has reached the semifinals at Wimbledon for the 11th time in her career.

Kerber needed seven match points to close out No. 14 Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-3, 7-5 at Centre Court, while Ostapenko defeated 2014 Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 7-5, 6-4 on a windy No. 1 Court. Williams hasn't lost a set against Goerges in three previous matches, including a victory last month at the French Open (6-3, 6-4) in the round of 32.

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

But she failed in her bid to become the first Dutchwoman to make the Wimbledon last four since Betty Stove in 1977.

Ostapenko was more efficient, serving her match out at love and converting her first match point with her 14th backhand victor. A good win for the big-serving South African and he's in pretty good form. As you have already guessed, it's Wimbledon time.

In a match that featured eight breaks of serve - four in the first five games - Ostapenko was able to elevate her game in the crucial moments.

25 seed, Williams is in the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the 13th time.

With the Wimbledon lawns baked and playing more bouncy than usual after a long spell of hot weather in London, it could be the 29-year-old's best chance to stop Nadal's impressive run. I'm just thinking about my next match, which is tomorrow. She jumped to a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes.
