Twitter Saved The Day After Serena Missed Her Daughter's First Steps

Serena Williams Alexis Olympia First Steps Wimbledon

An artful practitioner of serve-and-volley tennis, Navratilova shrewdly varied her shots, particularly on Wimbledon's grass, during her Hall of Fame career. 'I don't know what to say right now.

"I said to her, "You don't have to be sorry", Bertens said.

"This is only my fourth tournament back so I don't feel pressure, I don't feel I have to win this". ". I would try to go around her more, rather than through her".

And she wasn't the only one to mastermind a comeback from a set down, either, as semi-final opponent Goerges also took the more hard route to ousting Bertens.

Garbine Muguruza, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep, Petra Kvitova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and Sloane Stephens have all been eliminated already.

Tuesday, as Bartoli sized up what remains of a 2018 women's field that lost its top 10 seeds to early-round upsets, she saw no plausible outcome other than a Williams victory.

She next faces 13th-seeded Julia Goerges, who beat Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-3, 6-2 to secure her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance.

But that lifted a weight off her shoulders at the All England Club, where she has become the first Latvian to make a Wimbledon semi-final.

England Have Been Warming Up With Rubber Chickens Ahead Of Croatia
England defeated Sweden 2-0 in the quarterfinals to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in 32 years. Gazza was of course one of the star players the last time England played in an World Cup semi-final back in 1990.

The issue: a pectoral injury that, at the time, left some doubts that she could play at Wimbledon.

Serena Williams came up with a comeback to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon, then walked off Centre Court with her right index finger aloft.

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.

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.

Kerber took advantage of Kasatkina's erratic serving and errors to return to the last four.

"We both played on a really high level". "I do follow women's tennis", she said pointedly. "Good", she thought to herself.

Jelena Ostapenko blasted her way into her first Wimbledon semi-final with a display of power hitting against Dominika Cibulkova.

But, hitting her serve with more ferocity, Serena wrestled back control of the match with a crucial break in the fourth game of the second set.
