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

Kiki Bertens celebrates victory against Venus Williams

Serena Williams survived a major scare before sealing her 11th Wimbledon semifinal appearance, while Angelique Kerber remains the seven-time champion's main title rival after the German joined her in the last four on Tuesday.

Federer has now won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon to move within one straight-sets victory of breaking his previous longest streak at the All England Club, when he won 34 in a row between the third round in 2005 and the final in 2006.

Dutch tennis star Kiki Bertens followed up her victory over Venus Williams at Wimbledon last week by knocking out seventh seed Karolína Plísková in straight sets.

Williams will next face No. 13 seed Julia Goerges on Thursday in the semifinals. When she served for it a second time, she needed to navigate a 16-point game that included five deuces and all of those match points, until forcing a forehand error on the last. "I went for it", Serena said. His strengths are massaging the ball around the court with precision so once he found some rhythm he was able to produce some nice points but with no real power there just aren't any free points coming his way.

The Queen is back, with Tuesday's win guaranteeing that she will jump from 181 to at least 51 when the new rankings are announced next week. However, she took a big step back in 2017, going 1-12 against WTA top-20 players and failing to win a singles title.

Serena is the first woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final without facing a top 40 ranked opponent since 2013 and just the fourth since 2005. I just kept fighting.

"The seas have parted for her", nine-times champion Martina Navratilova said from the BBC's courtside bunker.

Her dance of delight signalled the end of Giorgi's threat as Williams raced to the finish line. It was a fearless performance that offered Williams one of her toughest tests since returning.

Looking to become the first Italian woman to make the Wimbledon semifinals, Giorgi did not let up, even when the match started to look like it was slipping away. "Keep on going, you can do this".

Former British No. 1 Anne Keothavong, who is among the roughly four dozen retired pros who returned to Wimbledon for this year's Legends invitation doubles matches, had no answers when asked what it would take to beat Williams this fortnight.

While heaping praise on Federer and admitting it will be hard to compete with the 20-time Grand Slam victor, Anderson vowed to "take the match to" his opponent.
