Serena Williams battles past Alison Riske to enter last four — WTA Wimbledon

Elina Svitolina

Elina Svitolina's previous best performance at Wimbledon was reaching the last 16 in 2017

In her first two Wimbledon matches, Serena looked her age, struggling to move around the court and struggling against two players ranked outside the top 100. But out? No way. She was fined three times and ultimately, the referee had given the game to Osaka, who Serena admits played a better game.

"It was really satisfying", said Williams, whose clay court campaign was affected by a knee injury. For Williams, this was No. 51. "Is it because I'm a woman?" she recalled thinking at the time.

Johanna Konta's often tetchy relationship with Britain's tennis media corps turned sour again as she accused them of "picking on me" after her quarter-final loss to Czech Barbora Strycova at Wimbledon on Tuesday. Williams felt "defeated and disrespected by a sport that I love", and couldn't find peace, as both the penalties and her outraged reaction caused national headlines. "I need to just do better".

Although Williams graciously congratulated Osaka at the net at the end of the match, the incident overshadowed the 21-year-old becoming the first Japanese to win a Grand Slam and left her in tears. "I tell myself, 'You've been through so much, you've endured so much, time will allow me to heal, and soon this will be just another memory that made me the strong woman, athlete, and mother I am today'". Then Williams went out and joined Andy Murray to win their second-round match in mixed doubles 7-5, 6-3 against Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo. She will next face either Elina Svitolina or Karolina Muchova. But in the second set, Riske broke for a 5-4 lead before holding serve to even the match. "I walk back to the court and lose the next point". "Ultimately, my daughter is the reason I use my voice, the reason I picked up a racket again", she wrote.

"It's no secret that Serena has an fantastic serve". "I'm ready for a war", Riske said.

Billionaire, two-time presidential candidate Ross Perot dies at 89
Young Mr Perot's first job was delivering papers in a poor, mostly black part of town from his pony, Miss Bee. He started up another company, Perot Systems Corp., in 1988, which was sold to Dell for $3.9 billion in 2005.


"I just had to just button up and play hard. That put a lot of pressure on my serve".

A testy exchange followed, with the reporter saying that if Konta wants to win a Grand Slam tournament one day, she should be willing to learn from matches like this one.

Williams rolled her right ankle and her movement was hardly ideal.

The Australian lost to Rafael Nadal in five sets in the second round.

Zhang led 4-1 in the first set and had four break points, but Halep saved them all.

A spokesperson for Brandon Police Service said it hadn't heard of any issues with 911 calls while the networks were down. The problem is reportedly affecting many customers from several service providers across Canada.


Not close enough. Williams was not going to go quietly.

In the tiebreaker, she converted her first set point with a forehand victor. In the stands, her husband leaped from his seat, pointed his index fingers at her and screamed.

Serena Williams copped a bigger fine than Fabio Fognini.

Williams also compared her situation with other situations involving men.

Williams, 37, reached the Wimbledon semifinals on Tuesday. She maintained that she'd "never cheated in my life", though Mouratoglou admitted he'd given her advice, but that she might not have seen it.
