The Italian enjoyed an historic ten days at SW19, with her reaching the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career, though her run came to an end on centre court, when she was beaten 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 by Serena Williams. Williams, who missed last year's Wimbledon because of pregnancy, has not lost here since 2014 and has now won 18 consecutive matches on the London lawns. An ace took her to 4-0 and there was no coming back for Pliskova. The issue: a pectoral injury that, at the time, left some doubts that she could play at Wimbledon.

Williams has more wins in a major after losing a first set (39) than any other player in the women's Open era (Chris Evert has 28 and Venus Williams has 27). "It's now all gone", Ostapenko said.
"After five years of first-round losses here, I think I've grown a lot to get to the semi-finals".
"It's speed and placement", Rodina said about what makes Williams' serve so effective.
"I feel like I'm getting to where I want to be".
"I feel good and did better today, I had to". Julia Goerges likes the sound of a repeat, though.
Serena Williams is the "superhero" of the Wimbledon grass, according to Marion Bartoli, with the Frenchwoman also suggesting it is "scary" how well the new mother has played on the way to the semifinals. She must be aggressive, with the right degree of control, and has to test the stamina of Williams who has so far won a stack of short points and rarely been pushed around court.
When Williams was asked her expectations after winning her first match at Wimbledon in two years, she said, "Not only do I expect to win, I expect to win emphatically".
