Serena Williams Won’t Apologize For Being the Best

Jelena Ostapenko beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus in straight sets

Rodina, who like Williams combines a tennis career with motherhood, looked overawed at first as she went 3-0 down.

Serena Williams continues to close in on a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown after advancing to her 11th Wimbledon semifinal.

With all the top seeds sent home, the Wimbledon favorite is now Serena Williams. The result also means all of the top 10 seeds in the women's draw have been eliminated.

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

Serena Williams is prepping for her return to Wimbledon and she will have an extra special fan in attendance to cheer her on.

Kerber was the runner-up at Wimbledon in 2016, when she surged to No. 1 in the world rankings after winning the Australian Open and US Open. Consider, too, that the other 15 women in fourth-round action Monday own a combined three major trophies: Angelique Kerber has two, Jelena Ostapenko the other. "I'm fighting to the end and it helps me, gives me more confidence", said the youngest player left in the draw. By the time she was done, she had hit 20 winners and only 14 unforced errors in a match of high quality on both sides.

Williams, who has a kind run through to the semi-finals, will next take on Camila Giorgi of Italy. In February 2017, the star accidentally announced that she was expecting her first child via Snapchat.

The president is not known for studying wonky strategy documents. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", he said . What makes it particularly hurtful is the evident personal affection and admiration Trump has for Putin.

Rodina, who upset 10th-seeded Madison Keys in the previous round, broke back for 3-2 in the second set but was broken to love straight away.

"Every match starts from zero", Goerges said of her semifinal matchup against Williams. I was just trying to stay focused on my serve.

In the first set, Giorgi hit twice more groundstrokes with her feet inside the baseline than Williams.

None of the top eight women's seeds have reached the quarter-finals for the first time since seedings were introduced in 1927 - although Williams' 25th seeding is misleading. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".

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.

Del Potro will face two-time champion Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
