More break points - and set points - went begging on Martin's next service game, but "Murena" eventually took their chance as Williams claimed the first set with a searing forehand victor. But I really feel that, even including today, I can take a lot away from these 10 days.
Serena Williams battled through to her 12th Wimbledon semi-final after being pushed all the way by Alison Riske.
But her day wasn't done with a win over Riske because she teammed up with Andy Murray for mixed doubles at the All England Club.
That helped them take the serve of Martin, who had earlier fired a 133mph serve down, to surge into a 3-0 lead in the second set. "She was playing her heart out and she had nothing to lose and I realised neither did I".
The first seven games all comfortably went on serve, until two Murray winners off Atawo's delivery forced break points, but the French-American pairing held off to level at 4-4.
In other action at Wimbledon, seventh-seeded Simona Halep advanced to the semifinals for the second time after beating Zhang Shuai 7-6 (4), 6-1.
"I still believe in the tennis I play". Late in the second set, she was visited by a trainer, who applied extra tape to the ankle.Читайте также: YouTube is finally available on Fire TVs again
Svitolina was down 4-1 in the opening set but broke back when Muchova served at 5-3 and won the next three games as well.
The 28-year-old three-time Grand Slam semi-finalist took to task a journalist who wondered whether she felt she could have dealt better with some pivotal points. Then she earned yet another break point on a thrilling 10-stroke exchange, using a drop shot to bring Riske forward and delivering a volley victor.
The American hard-court swing kicks-off a few weeks after the Wimbledon final - which Murray and Williams hope to be involved in.
Following the match, Konta addressed the media and talked about her match.
That's true. Also true: She's Serena Williams. It's unfortunate that it's worked out like that in terms of how it looks on paper with the rankings.
Halep and Svitlona will also duel in two days' time to determine one half of the Wimbledon 2019 ladies' final.
"She's something", Riske said, "our sport has never seen before".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
