Serena into semis after fighting back to beat Giorgi

Just one of over 400 points

Who she will face still is to be determined. "To be here. To be in the semifinals".

"I don't know what to say right now". But when it actually happens, it still is, like, 'Wow, this is really happening'. "For whatever reason, I was so calm", Williams said of her emotions as she battled back against Giorgi.

"I don't feel any pressure".

"I'm just enjoying the moment".

"But I'm going to prepare well for it, going to be probably long rallies".

Kerber won both the Australian Open and US Open in 2016 and will have a chance to win her third Grand Slam title on Saturday.

Williams reached her 35th Grand Slam semi-final with a gritty 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 quarter-final win over Camila Giorgi. In the second set, Williams served first and held but Giorgi leveled.

Williams never was anxious about losing.

"It's my game to play more aggressive and do more mistakes, but I will not change that".

Williams had just one break point opportunity in the second set, but that was all that she needed. She took the first set off Serena, 6-3.

"I said, 'All right, ' " said Williams, who hadn't dropped a set the entire tournament before Tuesday. "'I'll just keep fighting", Williams said.

Ostapenko's winning streak is intimidating, but Kerber can feel confident after refining her own game.

Kerber, a two-time Grand Slam champion, routed 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 Thursday on Centre Court at the All England Club.

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

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out. She jumped to a 3-0 lead in both sets and wrapped up the win in 62 minutes.

Showing her first sign of nerves Kerber wasted a match point and was broken when she served at 5-1. She was in the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time.

Kerber and Kasatkina are the only two women to reach the second week at all three majors this year.

The action has continued from the Wimbledon quarter-finals with Germany's Julia Goerges beating a close friend to make the first semi-final of her career, while Juan Martin del Potro resumed his rain-interrupted match to set up a showdown with Rafael Nadal.

The 29-year-old had served more aces (44) and hit more winners (199) than any other player in the first five rounds. In fact, photographers have captured Drake, 31, courtside at Williams' matches since 2011. "These are the matches I was working for since I was a kid".

Pliskova, at seven, was the highest seed to reach the fourth round after an extraordinary first week of upsets but her hopes of further progress evaporated on a stiflingly hot Court Two.

That was winning majors, and Williams enters the semifinals as the lowest-seeded player (25th) remaining in this year's Wimbledon tournament.
