Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion and seven-time Wimbledon winner, is entering her 11th semi-final at London’s All England Club. Her first-set loss to Giorgi on Tuesday was her first dropped one at the tournament thus far this year.

“I feel good, I feel like I did better today, I had to,” Williams said to BBC Sport. “This is only my fourth tournament back so I don’t feel pressure, I don’t feel I have to win this. I still have a long way to go to be where I was.”

Last month, Williams pulled out in the early rounds of the French Open due to a pectoral injury.
