Federer is taking on 22nd-seeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino before Williams faces Evgeniya Rodina in a matchup of the only two mothers remaining in the tournament. She stared longingly at her racket for a moment in sheer disbelief.

Serena Williams continues to close in on a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown after advancing to her 11th Wimbledon semifinal.

The sold-out crowd - which included Drake, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel - seemed stunned.

"The fact that it is the Centre Court, and the fact that it is a lot of people in the stands - it's not changing anything, actually".

The hint of USA withdrawal from Europe, while unlikely, indeed seems to have made many countries hike their defense spending . Today Europeans spend on defence many times more than Russian Federation , and as much as China.

Williams hasn't faced a seeded player yet, and she won't on Tuesday, either, instead facing 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy. An unusual forehand error at 15-30 made the difference for Williams as Giorgi broke to move 4-2 up. She seemed undaunted by the stage or the opponent. "I feel good. I feel like I did better today, I had to".

"After the first set, I said "okay let's go three sets", I just kept fighting". It's weird. I can't describe it.

In September, the tennis champion and her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a daughter named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. "I went for it", Serena said.

The seven-time champion beat Camila Giorgi 3-6 6-3 6-4 on Tuesday in the last eight, and will next face Julia Goerges, who beat Kiki Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1, to decide a place in the final.

Tense talks focused on the fate of Daraa city and its western countryside dragged late into Friday, said rebel spokesman Abazeed. The regime assault on rebel-held areas in Daraa since June 19 had killed more than 160 civilians, the Observatory says.

As easy as she is making it look, however, the American is not satisfied with her level. It also means she now has 90 Wimbledon wins, the most amongst active female players and she has not dropped a set yet in this tournament.

And, just as predictably, she was in no mood to provide an answer. She won 44 of the past 54 points she served. She never backed down from a challenge.

Giorgi, who chose to serve first, bounced around like a dancer on the baseline and used her fast hands to whip winners behind her serve. The two met last month in the second round at the French Open, with Williams winning in straight sets. He hadn't been this far at the All England Club since 2011, losing to men ranked 100th or worse on four of his past five appearances. We're starting from zero. "Now that I'm not, it kind of happened".

If her best is anything like we saw Tuesday, it seems like it will be an incredibly hard task for Goerges to pull off the victory.

Trump will meet one-on-one with Putin, ambassador confirms
Putin, which they would say bolster allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Moscow to hack the 2016 presidential election. But Hutchinson, and the USA ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman , gave upbeat assessments of the upcoming meetings.

The All England Club seeded her there as a nod to all of her past success at the grass-court major, including titles the last two times she entered, in 2015 and 2016. But this is only my fourth tournament back (so) I don't feel pressure, I don't feel like I have to win this.
