Venus Williams jokes about wishing Serena could play Wimbledon final for her

Rita Gibson | 14 July, 2017, 07:36

The fourteenth seed would go on to win her match with Kerber 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. "It's been a blessing".

"I have been working on a couple of tactical things like opening up the court more, moving in and serving better, and I saw myself improve in the a year ago", said Osuigwe, ESPN reported. One more win would be awesome. "I'm playing well. I want to keep it up for my last match and hopefully it goes well". It was a risky strategy, going for so much pace on a second serve, but it worked.

"I definitely will ask her", Williams said.

The 37-year-old showed fitness and energy beyond her years, breaking Konta once again to gain a vital advantage.

"This match was complicated because she was playing well since the start of the tournament".

"Was very hard for me". I saw her play before. Just before the hour, she was a set and 1-4 down with ball in hand. "I'm more focused on the work".

With victory against Konta, she improved her overall record to a phenomenal 87-14 - a tally bettered only by Navratilova (120-14) and Chris Evert (96-15).

She increased her dominance in the second as Rybarikova failed to make any impact whatsoever in her return games, and three more breaks of serve were enough to seal her place in Saturday's final.

The American star, who reached the last of her eight Wimbledon finals in 2009, faces Britain's Johanna Konta or Romania's Simona Halep in the last four on Thursday. "I just tried to climb on top each time to get another point". The 23-year-old preyed on her opponent's apparent nervousness and managed to make the game look easy.

Despite a suffocating defense, the American's inconsistent offense couldn't find the back of the net against Martinique. Why They Won't: The team underestimates an early last place disappointment from Nicaragua and gets caught unawares.

But emotionally, she also said she misses her sister "terribly", as Serena is late in her pregnancy and not traveling. "Serena played Garbine here in the 2015 final, so it will be great to have her in my corner with that advice".

In the time since, Williams revealed that she was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, which can sap energy and cause joint pain. It will be an afternoon to forget for her, though she should look back on her wonderful journey to the last four in the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and focus on that in the weeks and months ahead. Then, at the Australian Open in January, Williams reached the final, where she lost to - yes, you guessed it - her sister.

"Facing Venus, you know, she won here like five times".

Men's singles quarter-finals: (24) Sam Querrey (USA) bt (1) Andy Murray (Gbr) 3-6 6-4 6-7 (4-7) 6-1 6-1, (7) Marin Cilic (Cro) bt (16) Gilles Muller (Lux) 3-6 7-6 (8-6) 7-5 5-7 6-1, (3) Roger Federer (Swi) bt (6) Milos Raonic (Can) 6-4 6-2 7-6 (7-4), (11) Tomas Berdych (Cze) bt (2) Novak Djokovic (Ser) 7-6 (7-2) 2-0 ret.

Garbine Muguruza of Spain during her Wimbledon semi-final with Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia.

"I had a lot of issues", Williams said afterwards.

Muguruza was in tears after her fourth-round exit at the French Open last month, but the fired-up Spaniard eased past a nervous Rybarikova 6-1 6-1 in just 64 minutes in a one-sided semi-final to stand on the brink of a second major title.

Konta badly needed a stretch of points to get back in the fight, but she struggled to find the consistency of her earlier performances. "I have been doing well this year, I think it was the right one", she said, as USA Today reported. "It was a tricky match".
