Goerges downs Bertens to set-up Wimbledon semi with Serena

"The seas have parted for her", nine-times champion Martina Navratilova said from the BBC's courtside bunker. 'Each of us, seeded or not, I'm not seeded, we're just here to do our best. "I have a long way to go".

This is Williams' 18th consecutive win at the Championships - she missed last year's tournament as she prepared to have her first child.

That is going to change now.

Giorgi enjoyed a confident start, outhitting Serena by eight winners to six as she won the first set and opened up a 0-30 lead in the second game of the second stanza. She figured out Giorgi's strong serve, avoided any break points and had just four unforced errors.

Giorgi, when asked going into the match against Williams whether she would watch her opponent on tape, responded, "I don't follow tennis, women's tennis".

"I just want to be more of that role model for my daughter, for lots of people out there that just want to be inspired".

Angelique Kerber, the highest remaining seeded player in the women's draw at No. 11, finally converted on her seventh match point to advance to the Wimbledon semifinals.

Latvian history-maker Jelena Ostapenko remains in the hunt for a second grand slam title in 13 months after ending Aliaksandra Sasnovich's giant-killing campaign.

Kerber took advantage of Kasatkina's erratic serving and errors to return to the last four.

There are moments in which nothing at all seems different about Serena Williams, moments such as when she unleashed a 109 miles per hour service victor to even her Wimbledon quarterfinal at a set apiece, leaned forward and yelled, loudly as can be, "Cooome ooon!"

More than 200,000 sign People's Vote petition after Cabinet resignations
Now she has lost the seventh and eighth ministers from her Cabinet since last year's election in less than 24 hours. US President Donald Trump acknowledged that his visit to Britain from Thursday came at a time of "turmoil".

Still, Kerber had some trouble closing things out.

For the record, the two have met three times, and - surprise, surprise - Serena has won all three matches, most recently in the first round of the 2016 Australian Open.

The 90th Wimbledon win of her career - the most among active female players - means Serena, now 181st in the WTA rankings, will return to the top 100 next week. A blistering forehand return gave her three break points in the third game, and she snatched the first with an outstanding off-balance backhand down the line.

Germany's Goerges came from a set down on Court No 1 to defeat her friend and occasional doubles partner Kiki Bertens, the Dutch No 20 seed.

This is unchartered territory for 29-year-old Goerges.

Sen. Casey Comes Out Against Trump Nominee Before Pick is Announced
Kavanaugh is a well-known figure in Washington and has been involved in some of the biggest controversies of the past two decades. Since the 2016 campaign, Trump has made his process for picking Supreme Court justices fairly transparent.

Williams and Drake were first romantically linked back in 2011 after the "God's Plan" hitmaker was seen supporting her in the crowd at one of her matches. "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".
