Camila Giorgi reveals her biggest weapon at Wimbledon against Serena Williams

Djokovic won the last of his Wimbledon titles in 2015

Williams broke in the second game of the match, then roared loudly when she saved a break point in the seventh before a double fault from Rodina handed her the first set.

Williams looked to be in a spot of bother when she surprisingly lost the opening set 6-3 and struggled with consistency from the back of the court.

"It was great matches", Giorgi said in her postmatch news conference.

Kerber and Ostapenko is the more intriguing of the two semi-final clashes, with little to choose between the two in terms of style and confidence.

"To be here, to be in the semi-finals". "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever. But I realized everyone is different".

"I've been commentating on all Serena's matches and I think she's very close to her best level". Pliskova had been the only female player in the top 10 to reach the fourth round, the fewest in a Grand Slam event in the Open era following a slew of upsets in the first week.

Serena Williams had to come from a set down to unseeded Italian Camila Giorgi to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the 11th time. It's weird. I can't describe it.

With the Wimbledon lawns baked and playing more bouncy than usual after a long spell of hot weather in London, it could be the 29-year-old's best chance to stop Nadal's impressive run.

Wimbledon appeared to make their decision on the scheduling after Djokovic requested to play on Centre Court.

"It was just the way I felt. I'm happy to be in the second week, quarter-finals and now the semi-finals". "Even when I was down the first set, I thought, 'Well, she's playing great".

The 26-year-old, who was contemplating retirement last year after losing her enthusiasm for the sport, was the first Dutch woman to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Michaella Krajicek in 2007.

Kerber, the former world No.1 and runner-up to Williams in 2016, plays Latvia's 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in Thursday's second semi-final after outclassing Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 7-5. The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set, 6-4. I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this.

"At the French Open a couple weeks ago I had so much pressure". It's now all gone. I just tried to fight for every point.

Two-time grand slam victor Angelique Kerber faces 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko in the other semifinal after the pair downed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 7-5 and Dominika Cibulkova 7-5 6-4, respectively.

Nine-time Wimbledon champion and BBC pundit Martina Navratilova said: "She's been healthy here, hitting the ball hard and the seas have parted for her". "It's going to be a tough match", Ostapenko said.
