Keep calm and carry on: Williams serene at Wimbledon

Just one of over 400 points

The American will feature in her 11th semi-final at Wimbledon where she will lock horns with 13th seed Julia Goerges on Thursday.

The worst news for her next opponent, Italy's Camila Giorgi, is that Serena believes there is more to come.

"It's weird. Sometimes I feel, 'Man, I'm in trouble.' Sometimes I feel, 'I can fight.' For whatever reason, today I was so calm", said Williams, who has been wearing compression leggings as a precaution after a blood-clot scare following her daughter's birth.

"You're only as good as your last win. It's been a while since I've won a championship", Williams said.

"I hate losing. I mean, that's no secret".

"I literally didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said.

"It's important for me to have the losses".

An ace took her to 4-0 and there was no coming back for Pliskova. In a tournament where the top 10 women's players have been eliminated, Giorgi hadn't faced a seeded player since her first-round win over No. 21 Anastasija Sevastova. "I knew we were both moms, and I'm not sure how often that's happened, if ever".

With Olympia's arrival and her marriage to husband Alexis both taking place since Serena was last at Wimbledon, this year's campaign has a unique feel. "But I realized everyone is different".

"It was just the way I felt".

U.S. player Serena Williams serves against Italy's Camila Giorgi during their women's singles quarter-final match on the eighth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 10, 2018.

"These are the matches I was working for as a kid and to be in the final at Wimbledon is great".

The 29-year-old had served more aces (44) and hit more winners (199) than any other player in the first five rounds.

It also took her until her 42nd Grand Slam appearance to finally get through to the last four at a major.

Yet Goerges insists she can cause an massive upset against Williams.

Nine-time Wimbledon champion and BBC pundit Martina Navratilova said: "She's been healthy here, hitting the ball hard and the seas have parted for her". "I think it's a great week".

The action has continued from the Wimbledon quarter-finals with Germany's Julia Goerges beating a close friend to make the first semi-final of her career, while Juan Martin del Potro resumed his rain-interrupted match to set up a showdown with Rafael Nadal.

With Angelique Kerber also in the last four, it is the first time two German woman have made the semi-finals of a Grand Slam since Steffi Graf and Anke Huber at the 1993 French Open.

Goerges had suffered five successive opening round defeats at the All England Club before this year. Probably because at the French Open a couple weeks ago I had so much pressure.
