Wimbledon | Goerges sets up Wimbledon semi-final date with Serena

Just one of over 400 points

She stared longingly at her racket for a moment in sheer disbelief.

Williams could have played with baby Alexis strapped to her back in a papoose and still rolled over Rodina.

Asked what she likes the most about the way Williams plays, Giorgi responded: "I don't follow tennis".

But Williams rallied to win 3-6 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court and then insisted she was never anxious. He was down a break in the third set but broke right back for 3-3 and then converted his third match point when Vesely missed a backhand.

Despite this, and how it looked from the outside, Williams claimed she was never in any doubt that she would emerge victorious. Sometimes I feel, Man, I'm in trouble.

"I just felt calm".

"I don't know what I did (to turn things round)". It is what it is'. I can't describe it.

"Everything right now is a little bit of a surprise, to be here, to be in the semi-finals", she said.

The highest seed left in the draw is Görges global teammate, Angelique Kerber.

"Maybe I'll tweet at him if I win on Wednesday", Isner said. I'm like, I'm going as hard as I can on this one. Everything from that point on seemed to click for Williams.

Officer Raja Taifur said anticorruption authorities took Safdar into custody, according to The Associated Press. He has described the court proceedings against him as politically motivated and a judicial witch-hunt.

Serena fought back from a set down to defeat the daring Giorgi, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Williams, for the first time since her comeback, appears to have her body and mind aligned to take that next step. The match that precedes Williams on Centre Court promises to be more competitive.

Goerges admitted it had been tough playing her close friend and occasional doubles partner on tour. "It's been a while since I've won a championship", Williams said.

Williams hasn't lost a set against Goerges in three previous matches, including a victory last month at the French Open (6-3, 6-4) in the round of 32. She hasn't had to try very hard to win her points against an error-prone Ostapenko. The Italian took the first set six games to three.

But her blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

And Drake looked proud as he turned up to support Serena Williams during her quarterfinal match at Wimbledon on Tuesday.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion is playing her fourth tournament since giving birth to daughter Olympia in September.

The American star faces German 13th seed Julia Goerges on Thursday hoping to book a 10th final appearance at the All England Club. Williams beat Goerges at the recent French Open but said of their upcoming SW19 meeting: "This is a whole new match, it's a new surface, it's everything". And you have at least four or five months where you can't sleep for the whole night. We're starting from zero.

"I'm getting there. I don't think I'm there yet. It's just about the next match now".

"I feel good and did better today, I had to".
