So easy for Serena as she rolls into quarter-finals

Williams moved closer to her eighth title at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam trophy overall - but first since missing more than a year while having a baby - by beating Camila Giorgi of Italy 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals Tuesday.
Williams, who missed Wimbledon past year due to her pregnancy, won the grass-court Grand Slam on her previous two visits in 2015 and 2016.
Jelena Ostapenko showed all her "fighting" qualities to defeat Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova 7-5, 6-4 and become the first Latvian to reach the Wimbledon singles semi-finals.
"For whatever reason, I was so calm", Williams said of her emotions as she battled back against Giorgi.
"I faced a thousand and three seeds in my life, so I'm okay", she said.
With an unprecedented cull of big names at this year's championship, Williams is yet to face a seed, but that will change in the semis where Julia Georges, the 13th seed, awaits. Pliskova was beaten 6-3, 7-6 (1) by No. 20 Kiki Bertens, who eliminated Williams' sister, Venus, last week.
Serena Williams had to come from a set down to unseeded Italian Camila Giorgi to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the 11th time.
She said: "I feel like I'm getting to where I want to be".
Serena Williams set a new record but played down title talk as she eased into the last-eight. In front of a Centre Court crowd that included Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Drake, Giorgi stood inside the baseline to return the Williams serve, never yielding ground and pushing the American to withstand her power. Bartoli's view is that the American is motivated by wanting to win for her daughter Olympia.

She was the lone top-10 women's seed still around at this upset-filled tournament, and now she's also gone. That year, Cilly Aussem and Hilde Krahwinkel went on to set up the only all-German women's final in Grand Slam history.
There was a controlled fury about Williams's play, and when she conjured an off-balance backhand victor to break in the third game of the decider, the outcome was inevitable. "It's a great opportunity for me to meet her at that stage". I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back.
Ostapenko's winning streak is intimidating, but Kerber can feel confident after refining her own game. "But whatever happens it's a great moment for me and incredible motivation to keep going for the rest of my career", Serena added.
Cibulkova did her best to try and hang on but the Slovakian was left chasing shadows as Ostapenko blasted a backhand victor on her first match point to reach the last four without dropping a set in this year's tournament.
"I have a long way to go".
"She is clearly a really good grass-court player".
Considering what she went through during a traumatic labour nine months ago, since when she has played only a handful of matches, Williams's physical condition has been impressive.
Earlier, Kerber raced into her second Wimbledon final and fourth Grand Slam showpiece as the German crushed former French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 in 67 minutes. She won 44 of the last 54 points she served.
