Wimbledon 2018 -- Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon semifinals

Serena Williams had to come from a set down to unseeded Italian Camila Giorgi to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the 11th time. I don't feel pressure; I don't feel like I have to win this. I just kept fighting. And I feel like I'm back. "I feel like I'm back, but I still have a long way to go to get to where I was".

One break in each of the three sets was all that decided the fixture, as Williams mimicked Giorgi's guarded game after going a break up in the first, completing a polished performance in a little less than two hours.

Going a break down elicited a typically angry response from Williams, who surged into a 40-0 lead on Giorgi's serve in the subsequent game.

She served for the victory at 5-4 in the second set, but got broken.

"After the first set, I was like, 'All right, let's go three sets.' And that's kind of what I thought".
