Serena Williams into Wimbledon semi-finals with win over Camila Giorgi

Serena Williams into Wimbledon semi-finals with win over Camila Giorgi

With every passing round Williams has grown in strength and confidence.

When Serena broke again for a 2-1 lead in the final set, the American whirled and pumped her arms.

"I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever". So it's really cool. "I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this", Williams said.

When tennis champion Serena Williams competed Tuesday at Wimbledon, eventually defeating Italian tennis player Camila Giorgi, she had an old friend cheering her on - her ex, Drake.

One break in each of the three sets was all that decided the fixture, as Williams mimicked Giorgi's guarded game after going a break up in the first, completing a polished performance in a little less than two hours.

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

Williams faces Italy's Camila Giorgi in the quarterfinals at 7 a.m. Tuesday at the All England Club.

Yankees' Cashman, Arizona Cardinals owner back Trump's Supreme Court pick
The latest political battlegound in the US Senate is soon set to become Donald Trump's choice for Supreme Court judge. The organization wants someone who will "interpret the law as written and not legislate from the bench", Riggs added.

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.

Her loss marks the first time in the Open era that any major has featured a quarterfinal round without a top-10 seed on either the men's or women's side, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Drake will never not be a fan of Serena Williams.

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.

The highest seed left in the draw is Görges worldwide teammate, Angelique Kerber.

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. If she missed her first serve, she'd simply blast another first serve with all her might, rather than a high-percentage second serve, and not worry about double-faulting.

Williams, for the first time since her comeback, appears to have her body and mind aligned to take that next step. Argentinean del Potro was up two sets to one when bad light stopped play on Monday evening. "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit".
