Williams Fight Back To Reach Wimbledon Last Four

11 July 2018 News Sport


Serena Williams survived a scare to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals with a comeback victory over hard-hitting Italian Camila Giorgi.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion dropped her first set of the championships but came through 3-6 6-3 6-4.

Giorgi, the world number 52, produced the type of power normally associated with her opponent – but the American then found an extra gear.

Williams faces German 13th seed Julia Gorges in Thursday’s semi-finals.
