The Wimbledon semifinals are now set

Wimbledon

Saturday, Williams will attempt to become the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam tournament since professionals were first allowed to play them in 1968, breaking the mark set by her younger sister Serena at the Australian Open in January.

Stocked with players new and old, the world No. 2 and the world No. 87, multi-Grand Slam champions, and those with everything to prove, the 2017 Wimbledon women's quarterfinals are delightfully uncertain. But what a great two weeks for her. She'll likely be seeded at the US Open, which is an incredible turn of events given her 7-month injury setback.

She continued her good run against Lesia Tsurenko and Petra Martic to make her first ever Grand Slam quarter-final.

"I've loved the support, it's not been added pressure". "I can't ask for more, but I want a little more". Konta in her first. "It was a tricky match".

However, a handful of points later and she'd dropped her serve and Williams had snatched the opener, establishing a momentum that she never lost. The way they've elevated women's tennis is truly inspiring, " Konta said.

"If somebody told me before the tournament I'm going to be in semifinal, I'd for sure take it", Rybarikova said. "So I feel very excited and very humbled to be sharing the court with her again".

Andy Murray will be second in the main stadium, followed by Roger Federer.

Talk about coming out of nowhere. "I think my experience just helped a lot". I would have liked to have made it a full fortnight but it's okay.

While the 26-year-old winds down by watching her favourite band U2 next weekend, Williams turns her attention to Muguruza and winning her sixth singles title at Wimbledon.

"She played so well", Williams said of Konta. We're so proud of you and I'd like you to come as my guest to one of my gigs.

Konta had seven aces in the semifinal match with Williams, but she also served up four double faults - including one that cost her a crucial game early in the second set.

Her flameout in the semifinal notwithstanding, Rybarikova was still pleased with her tournament.

Trailing, 0-5, in the first set, Rybarikova finally won a game and heard a loud cheer from the fans, who evidently felt sympathy for her plight.

"I just expected myself to be ready as much as I could".

On Tuesday, 2015 finalist Garbiñe Muguruza of Spain defeated Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-4 to reach the semifinal round at Wimbledon.
