Wimbledon glance: Williams to face Goerges in semifinals

This was because the last time he was spotted watching her play, Williams lost in the semifinals of the 2015 US Open, just two wins away from completing the calendar-year Grand Slam.

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.

Kerber came out on top in a spectacular 25-shot rally to force match point number seven and finally got the job done as Kasatkina netted a forehand, the German a relieved 6-3 7-5 victor.

Li Na said she was stunned by Serena Williams' impressive comeback from giving birth and said her old rival has a golden chance to reclaim her Wimbledon crown. "I won the first set, and then she played well, but I'm happy with the way I played".

Last year, Ostapenko broke onto the scene by winning the French Open as an unseeded 19-year-old, and she will need to get past German 11th seed Angelique Kerber on Thursday if she is to contest her second grand slam final.

She added: "Obviously she has won so many titles here, not only here, a lot of Grand Slams beside Wimbledon".

Williams responded by raising the intensity level and began striking the ball with ferocious power to break Giorgi's serve for the first time on her way to levelling the match. "But I notice she plays that way against everybody". She leads 4-2 in the second set. She must be aggressive, with the right degree of control, and has to test the stamina of Williams who has so far won a stack of short points and rarely been pushed around court.

Not one top-10 seed has made the women's quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

I really feel for him. "As of right now, I'm sort of more focused on that than getting too excited about the overall picture". The two went back and forth all the way to 12-all, essentially playing a full sixth and seventh set.

Julia Goerges reacts after beating Kiki Bertens in a Wimbledon quarter-final match.

There was a controlled fury about Williams's play, and when she conjured an off-balance backhand victor to break in the third game of the decider, the outcome was inevitable.

Despite this, and how it looked from the outside, Williams claimed she was never in any doubt that she would emerge victorious. "I'll just keep fighting", Williams said.

The Dutch star finally tested Goerges' serve in the next game and she struck a superb victor on her way to securing the first break of the match.

Will Kerber face Serena Williams or fellow German Julia Goerges in the final? However, she took a big step back in 2017, going 1-12 against WTA top-20 players and failing to win a singles title.

"It was great matches", Giorgi said in her postmatch news conference. Ostapenko double faults at breakpoint as Kerber clinches the first set 6-3. She figured out Giorgi's strong serve, avoided any break points and had just four unforced errors.

Thursday's (Friday NZT) other semifinal will also feature a German, two-time grand slam champion Angelique Kerber, against 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia. Meanwhile, Ostapenko also achieved a win in straight sets against Dominika Cibulkova, 7-5, 6-4. "Being a mom is totally different", she said.
