Drake Spotted Supporting Serena Williams In The Crowd At Wimbledon

It was the first time she'd needed to erase a real deficit this fortnight: Williams hadn't dropped a set until facing Giorgi, who was in her first Grand Slam quarterfinal.

On Wednesday, the 29-year-old will be playing in his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2013, when he went on to lose to Novak Djokovic in an epic semi-final.

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.

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.

Ostapenko was more efficient, serving her match out at love and converting her first match point with her 14th backhand victor.

Williams had made a tentative return to action following complications during daughter Olympia's birth, struggling in her few appearances before pulling out midway through the recent French Open with a pectoral injury.

Strauss, who died in 2005, is accused of inappropriate conduct by athletes from over a dozen sports at Ohio State. But from what I can tell there's been no move to call for any investigation from Jordan's Republican colleagues.


Williams may not have won a major in 18 months, but one wouldn't have guessed it judging by the four consecutive straight-set wins she'd taken en route to the quarter-finals in London this year. Serena Williams will be there, though, after she moved a step closer to an eighth title at the All England Club. "I do follow women's tennis", she said pointedly. But also I've never been ranked where I am when this has happened before, so usually I'm one of those few seeds left that's still fighting and still in the tournament. "But I feel like I'm back".

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.

The key game was when Williams powered to a 2-1 lead in the decisive set, against the serve, without conceding a point. The number 11 seed overcame a determined Belinda Bencic 6-3, 7-6 and, like Görges, will fancy her chances at upsetting Williams' charge to the title. Ostapenko won last year's French Open. "But when I come here, I come here thinking that I can do a good result, no?"

Federer is taking on 22nd-seeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino before Williams faces Evgeniya Rodina in a matchup of the only two mothers remaining in the tournament.

No. 7 Karolina Pliskova, the last of the top-10 women, lost 6-3, 7-6 (1) to Kiki Bertens.
