Serena Williams's next opponent: I don't like women's game

"But I feel like every time I lose, I get better", she said. I was just trying to stay focused on my serve.

In his press conference after his fourth-round win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, he was asked about it and admitted he didn't know anything about Trump's visit.

"For me, there's so much farther I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

"She is not a human; she is just a hero", Bartoli of Williams, who's seeking her eighth championship at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam title just 10 months after giving birth to her first child.

That is going to change now. As she figured, she would lose the point anyway if she gifted Williams a weak second-serve. This was a match which I maybe should have won, if I maybe play a little bit better I can win. "I'm here just to prove that I'm back, and I feel like I'm back".

Drake has been pictured cheering on his ex-girlfriend Serena Williams as she made it through to the Wimbledon semi-finals.

Jelena Ostapenko advanced to a second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal with a 7-6 (4), 6-0 victory over Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

Buffon feels 'magic energy' of Paris - English
"I don't think it's an obsession for me and neither for Paris Saint Germain ", said Buffon at his first PSG press conference on Monday.

Kerber, runner-up at the All England Club two years ago, as well as the 2016 Australian Open and US Open victor, looks on a mission to atone for a disappointing season in the slams in 2017. "It's great to be in the semis", Kerber said after she finally sealed the win on her seventh match point.

Her loss marks the first time in the Open era that any major has featured a quarterfinal round without a top-10 seed on either the men's or women's side, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

She glanced at the monitor that displays service speeds.

But her blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon. The number 11 seed overcame a determined Belinda Bencic 6-3, 7-6 and, like Görges, will fancy her chances at upsetting Williams' charge to the title.

She was the aggressor throughout, hitting 33 winners to Cibulkova's six, but also doubling her opponent's unforced error count.

But the American's formidable record could not dampen Goerges' jubilation on Tuesday because as she admitted: "After five years of first round losses, I have grown a lot".

Goerges had gone out in the first round at Wimbledon for the past five years.
