Serena Williams Reaches Wimbledon Semi-Finals With Win Over Camila Giorgi
The 36-year-old American and No. 25 seed beat World No. 52 Giorgi 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Williams will next play Julia Gorges, a German No. 13 seed, on Thursday.
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.
The other women’s semi-final will see No. 11 seed Angelique Kerber face Latvian 12th seed Jelena Ostapenko.
Del Potro, 29, is in the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time since 2013.
