Serena Williams recovered from a set behind to seal her place in the Wimbledon semi-finals. The seven-time champion beat Camila Giorgi 3-6 6-3 6-4 on Tuesday in the last eight, and will next face Julia Goerges, who beat Kiki Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1, to decide a place in the final.
This will be Serena’s 11th semi-final at Wimbledon, having only returned to playing Tennis in March after becoming a first-time mother last September.
"I am OK, I feel good, I feel like I did better today, I had to," said the 36-year-old. "But this is only my fourth tournament back, I don't feel pressure, I don't feel I have to win this, I don't feel I have to lose this. I am just here to be here and prove I am back. I feel like I am back, I still have a long way to where I was."
The quarter-final win extends Williams’ winning streak at the All England Club to 19 matches, having won the tournament in the last two years she participated (2015 & 2016).
