Serena Williams vs Camila Giorgi, Wimbledon 2018

Williams continues her quest for an eighth title later against Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina, with the victor to meet Italian Camila Giorgi, who advanced to her maiden grand slam quarter-final with a 6-3 6-4 defeat of Ekaterina Makarova.

Having missed Wimbledon previous year while she prepared to have her first child in September, Serena is in pole position to win her first Grand Slam crown since becoming a mother.

Kiki Bertens took care of the last of the top 10 with a 6-3, 7-6 (7/1) victory over Czech seventh seed Karolina Pliskova. "For me, there's so much further I want to go to get back where I was, and hopefully go beyond that".

Noted tennis fan Trump, who is to visit London, Windsor and Scotland, is not believed to be scheduled to attend any matches at Wimbledon at present.

Williams said she would not want her daughter to have to grow up being compared to her mother.

ACLU says less than half of child reunions will meet deadline
Around 80 percent of them are teenagers who tried to make the crossing without their parents, HHS Secretary Alex Azar has said. Gelernt said the ACLU was concerned that parents would be put on the street without any money in an unfamiliar city.

"I think", Federer said when it was over, "I can be very pleased". "It's 115, and she puts the ball close to the line".

The 2017 French Open champion lost her first two service games and was down 5-2 in the opening set before rallying to force a tiebreaker against her Belarussian opponent. She faces 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, just two weeks after beating the Russian in a third-set tiebreaker on the grass courts of Eastbourne, tying their head-to-head record at 3-3. Also still in the running is No. 12 seed, Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia.

Bertens will meet Julia Goerges after Germany's 13th seed ousted Croatian Donna Vekic 6-3 6-2 in their fourth-round contest.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko is the second-highest-ranked player left in the draw and faces Dominika Cibulkova next after the Slovakian world number 33 continued her defiant run with a 6-4 6-1 victory over Su-Wei Hseih.

"You never know what to expect from her [Ostapenko]", Cibulkova said. Twenty years after making her Wimbledon debut, Williams looks as good as ever and she moves into the quarter-finals without dropping a set in her first four matches.
