Halep holds off Zhang to return to Wimbledon semis

Karolina Pliskova vs Karolina Muchova

Halep said she now feels much more comfortable on grass having struggled on many of her previous appearances.

Serena Williams survived a scare against fellow American Alison Riske as she dropped the second set but an impressive tally of 19 aces to 1 eventually told to hand the seven-time Wimbledon victor a chance at an eighth singles trophy at the All England Club when she faces Strycova in Thursday's semi-final.

This will be Halep's best result at the Wimbledon Championships after 2014 when the Romanian reached the last four at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

Former world number one and Romania's Simona Halep on Tuesday became the first semifinalist at the Wimbledon after defeating China's Zhang Shuai.The number seven seed Halep came from behind to upset Zhang Shuai 7-6 (4), 6-1.Halep and Zhang had not faced each other from the past three years.

But it was a night that, though he ran out of gas at the end, if we're being honest, belonged to the young Blue Jays slugger. He's also the first Mets player to win the derby since Darryl Strawberry shared the title with Wally Joyner in 1986.

Halep plays her quarter final against Shuai Zhang today on Court No.1 knowing that her opponent holds a 2-1 winning advantage over her. In the tiebreaker, she converted her first set point with a forehand victor. Despite the straight sets scoreline the match was far from linear.

Garbiñe Muguruza, the 2017 Wimbledon champion, has split with her coach of about four years, Sam Sumyk. Beyond grateful for this last 4 years. That pressure is way more than at the French Open where her game is much more suited to clay and she knows she will most likely win eight times out of ten. She will now meet Alison Riske of U.S. in quarters at 5:30 pm (Indian Standard Time) on Tuesday.

No. 7 Simona Halep is the highest seeded woman left in the draw. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Qatar Open where Simona Halep won in 3 sets.

Also, Johanna Konta, the last British player in the tournament, will play Barbora Strycova, while No. 8 Elina Svitolina faces Karolina Muchova.
