  • Serena Williams proves semi-tough at Wimbledon

From then on, the result felt inevitable as she served beautifully, levelling the match and then, after a stunning backhand to break for 2-1 in the decider, she eased through the set, serving out to love to take her place in the last four.

Serena Williams has warned her Wimbledon rivals that she is nowhere near her best despite powering into the quarter-finals without dropping a set. She missed Wimbledon a year ago because she was pregnant, going about 16 months between Grand Slam tournaments, so her ranking is just outside the top 180.

Pliskova's exit means that for the first time in the Open era, no top ten seeds on the Ladies' side reached the quarterfinals at the All-England Club as Bertens sets up a last eight tie with 13th seed Julia Goerges with the victor advancing to their first Wimbledon semifinal. This time around focus was on whether Williams would be seeded (she was) and where she would land up in the draw. Looking for breaking news, videos, Olympic and Paralympic team bios all at your fingertips?

Williams herself wasn't fazed by the whole ordeal, or at least she didn't show it in press.

"I've been commentating on all Serena's matches and I think she's very close to her best level".

"I'm surprised she's playing so well".

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.

It was the first frame she dropped during her 2018 campaign and ended an astounding 20-set win streak at the All England Club, dating back to 2016. A lot. Plus I don't want her to have pressure from what I did, people talking about 'are you going to be able to do as good as your mom?'.

It also proved she is still the woman to beat in the women's draw, despite this being just her fourth tournament since giving birth last September.

Men's quarterfinals: Kevin Anderson beat Roger Federer 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11; John Isner beat Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 7-6 (7), 6-4, 6-3; Novak Djokovic beat Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2; Rafael Nadal beat Juan Martin del Potro 7-5, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. "To be here, to be in the semi-finals", Williams said. "I'm doing a lot of the right things". After the first set, I just said, let's go three sets.

"I don't know what to say right now".

The incident raised questions about Cibulkova's conduct but Hsieh said: "I understand".

Yet Goerges insists she can cause an massive upset against Williams.

A double fault and a superb Goerges forehand created break point in Bertens' next service game but she was again up to the task, producing two big serves.

"It is a great opportunity to play Serena here where she has won so many times and is a great champion".
