Serena Williams into Wimbledon quarter-finals with win over Evgeniya Rodina

Serena Williams rallies to reach Wimbledon semifinals

USA 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.

'Against Anderson he has won all four matches and never dropped a set, so I expect him to comfortably get through.

Williams, 36, will meet Angelique Kerber of Germany, who won earlier Thursday 6-3, 6-3 over Jelena Ostapenko.

The match that precedes Williams on Centre Court promises to be more competitive.

Kiki Bertens ensured a record exodus of seeds at Wimbledon on Monday when she added Czech Karolina Pliskova to the list of big names to perish before the quarter-finals. The issue: a pectoral injury that, at the time, left some doubts that she could play at Wimbledon.

Being able to carry this upsurge in momentum into a last-four match with Williams is another matter altogether.

Hero or villain? Trump's court pick is in for a fight
Some conservative critics faulted Kavanaugh for not taking up the merits of the dispute and declaring the ACA unconstitutional. Murkowski supports abortion rights, and it was a key reason she voted against Trump's Obamacare repeal last summer.

An ace took her to 4-0 and there was no coming back for Pliskova. And Williams committed just four unforced errors, a key area for her.

Pliskova, at seven, was the highest seed to reach the fourth round after an extraordinary first week of upsets but her hopes of further progress evaporated on a stiflingly hot Court Two. Williams has more wins in a major after losing a first set (39) than any other player in the women's Open era (Chris Evert has 28 and Venus Williams has 27).

Giorgi appeared a bit salty - maybe that's her normal demeanor - as she shook hands with Williams at the net after the match and quickly grabbed her bag and walked off the court.

'Wow, it's pretty fantastic, ' Goerges said afterwards.

"I feel good, I felt like I did better today, I had to, but this is only my fourth tournament back so I don't feel any pressure and have to win this", she said. I just tried to fight for every point.

"It was just the way I felt".

Three things we learned from Croatias semi-final win over England
Croatia's legs at the start seemed to carry the weight of so many minutes in the knockout stage, and a pressing England went up quickly.

Goerges, seeded 13th, will tackle American Williams as the tournament's top server, having racked up 44 aces so far at these Championships.

In her third Wimbledon semi-final and seventh at the majors, Kerber landed the first blow with a break, thanks to a wild Ostapenko misfire, in the seventh game of the first set. Germany's Angelique Kerber was dominant in her battle against Daria Kasatkina the 14th seeded lady.

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. I had multiple surgeries and almost didn't make it when I gave birth.

Williams has won her first five matches against unseeded opponents.

Having shaken off any rust that may have remained from her absence, Williams appears to be closing in on top form at the right time.
