Serena Williams : If superstar wants to rule again, she will, says Henin

Ostapenko into first Wimbledon quarterfinal

Venus Williams celebrates her victory at the Wimbledon quarterfinals on July 11.

Konta, who defected from Australia five years ago, is the first British woman to reach the last four at Wimbeldon since Virginia Wade in 1978 after a 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 win over Halep.

World No11 Williams, beaten in 2017's Australian Open final, was knocked out in the 2016 semifinals and is chasing a first Major title since winning Wimbledon in 2008.

Halep, who lost to Ostapenko in the French Open final, defeated former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka 7-6 (3), 6-2 and would replace Kerber at No. 1 if she eliminates Konta next.

In a professional career lasting more than two decades, Williams is closing in on a 50th WTA title and credits her longevity to a love of the game and a desire to constantly improve.

There was plenty Novak Djokovic was unhappy about after his fourth-round match was delayed until Tuesday due to Rafael Nadal's epic match with Gilles Muller.

Top-ranked Andy Murray, the defending champion, beat Benoit Paire, 7-6 (1), 6-4, 6-4, on Centre Court.

What's Next For Terminally Ill 11-Month Old Set To Die?
In the post, the president claimed the United States would be "delighted" to help Charlie in any way possible. The parents had said earlier that they expected doctors to end life support for their child last Friday.

But Ostapenko, 20, was the youngest player left in the tournament and Venus has scythed through the draw by dispatching a series of opponents nearly half her age, many of whom idolised the her when they were growing up.

Muguruza will now play Rybarikova on Thursday after the Slovak overpowered a wayward Coco Vandeweghe in a match which was switched to Centre Court after rain halted play at 2-2 in the second set. The American was once again in trouble when she was down 4-5 and was serving to save the set. So I know how she can play. "It's her physio. I mean, I know she acts like this all the time". "She won lots of matches". Hence, when the 20-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko won the French Open recently (her first slam), it was only exemplifying the recent trends in Women's tennis.

Not since Jo Durie in 1984 has Britain had a female representative in the last eight and Konta, hoping to become the first home victor of the Wimbledon women's title since Wade in 1977, has added incentive to go a step further against Halep after their stormy Fed Cup encounter earlier this year.

And though the afternoon seemed over when Williams subsequently broke her opponent to love, Ostapenko did strike back for 3-3, courtesy of a Williams double-fault at break-point. I'm a completely different player. That included going 0 for 5 in the fifth set, four in one game, and was a big reason that the No. 4-seeded Spaniard lost despite remarkable totals of 77 winners and 17 unforced errors.

Williams went up a break early in both sets against Ostapenko, the French Open champion. Venus Williams cruises to a victory in the opening set as she wins it 6-3.

"I was not happy to not play last night". Good. "And I think I'm quite skilful".
