Serena Williams vs Alison Riske, Wimbledon 2019

Serena Williams Wimbledon

Johanna Konta's often tetchy relationship with Britain's tennis media corps turned sour again as she accused them of "picking on me" after her quarter-final loss to Czech Barbora Strycova at Wimbledon on Tuesday (July 9). "She was really so close to taking the win today".

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.

Williams' blows, however, became too frequent and too heavy in the final games, with the weaponised serve pushing the world number 55 Riske back on her heels, while her return worked like an old slugger's right-hook.

Williams and her mixed doubles partner Andy Murray are also in second-round action against Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo Tuesday. It was very interesting to be on the opposite end because I felt her up her game and her intensity.

Seventh seed Halep, who ended the run of 15-year-old Coco Gauff on Monday, took the match by the scruff of the neck once she won the first set.

"I have energy, I feel fresh, I feel healthy, I feel confident when I step on the court". She will next face either Elina Svitolina or Karolina Muchova.

Italian tennis player Fabio Fognini was fined $3,000 after saying that he wished a bomb would hit Wimbledon. She then went on to level set scores. Although the three-time Grand Slam champion said his comeback performances over the last month have made him positive about his future, he is firm on the fact he will not rush back. In the tiebreaker, she converted her first set point with a forehand victor. I need to look pretty long term with this.

He said he was upset about not playing well and the condition of the court's grass.

The American has previously been fined $10,000 at the All England Club for repeatedly smashing her racket on the court during a second-round victory over Christina McHale in 2016.

The 23-time major champion is competing for her eighth title at Wimbledon.

Svitolina had lost her previous four Grand Slam quarterfinals, including at this year's Australian Open, while her previous best result at Wimbledon was reaching the fourth round in 2017.

"She's something", Riske said, "our sport has never seen before".
