Serena Williams survives scare to make 11th Wimbledon Semi-final

July 11, 2018

Wimbledon: Serena Williams survived a major scare before sealing her 11th Wimbledon semi-final appearance as the seven-time champion hit back to beat Italy’s Camila Giorgi 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Tuesday.

Williams was in danger of a stunning quarter-final exit after world number 52 Giorgi became the first player in this year’s tournament to take a set off the former world number one.

But Serena bludgeoned her way out of trouble over the final two sets to stay on course for an eighth All England Club triumph. It was Serena’s 100th career main draw victory on grass.

The 36-year-old will play German Julia Goerges on Thursday for a place in Saturday’s final boasting a 3-0 career record.
