Wimbledon 2018, Day 10: Match Points

Serena Williams moved closer to an eighth Wimbledon title by overcoming being a set down to beat Camila Giorgi in the quarterfinals.

It's also the only Grand Slam tournament in the half-century professional era with zero top-10 seeds in the women's final eight.

"I don't think the draw is open. We've played so many tough matches", Kerber said after she finally sealed the win on her seventh match point. "Usually, I'm one of those few seeds left that's still fighting and still in the tournament".

"I'm going to go out there and just do what I can, do my best, see what happens". She missed previous year because of her pregnancy but is on an 18-match winning run at the All England Club. I mean, I always say I plan on it, I would like to be there, have these goals. "I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back".

That might sound a tad scary to opponents.

Goerges had gone out in the first round at Wimbledon for the past five years.

Ultimately, Williams found a way to win, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, but Giorgi gave her all she could handle.

Williams hit serves up to 118 miles per hour, delivering 10 aces, including four in one game.

With all the top seeds sent home, the Wimbledon favorite is now Serena Williams.

Serena Williams is rightfully, shamelessly confident, which she not only exudes but will also vocalize if asked. Serena Williams, who lost a set for the first time at this year's Wimbledon, came back to win the final two sets 6-3, 6-4.

Williams faces Camila Giorgi of Italy next, while 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber plays Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation. Williams is the only remaining American in the women's singles bracket.

Kerber takes on Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko in the other semi-final.

Kerber beat Kasatkina on grass at Eastbourne two weeks ago and again she was in control, finishing off the first set easily before landing an early break in the second.

And she wasn't the only one to mastermind a comeback from a set down, either, as semi-final opponent Goerges also took the more hard route to ousting Bertens.

Giorgi, Kasatkina, Bertens and Goerges will each be making her debut in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Pliskova, at seven, was the highest seed to reach the fourth round after an extraordinary first week of upsets but her hopes of further progress evaporated on a stiflingly hot Court Two.

And, just as predictably, she was in no mood to provide an answer.
