Serena Williams has only two trophies from the 24th title of the elusive Grand Slam, record set. And the path does not look too complicated to go.
Williams reached the Wimbledon semifinals Tuesday by winning to win 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 more than 55th place, Alison Riske. Williams now prefers to get the best money to take the trophy at 10/11, according to Westgate Superbook.
The last 37-year-old student was close to Grand Slam's crown, in the 2018 US Open Final, it was devolved fill her chaos with tear that she still wants to go over.
But Williams has emerged after he emerged from the fourth strongest of the women's single bracket, which also included the world.
Next for Williams will be in his semifinal match on Thursday against Barbora Strycova from 54th place in the Czech Republic, who reached its first half of Great Slam at age 33 and recently retired.
“It sounds crazy that it's happening, but I don't really believe it,” said Strycova after victory 7-6 (5), 6-1 over the seed of No. 19 Johanna Konta of Great Britain.
The people who could be against Williams in the final are No. 7 Simona Halep and No. 8 Elina Svitolina, which meets in the other semifinal.
Svitolina is also introduced into Grand Slam half for the first time. Halep (title margins: 7/4), former No. 1, was probably the biggest threat to Williams' major title – a record of Margaret Court's record from another era, almost 50 years in advance. 1 ended the dream dream of 15- Coco Gauff year old.
But Halep plays his best tennis on slower clay courts (she won the 2018 French Open), and never won the Wimbledon final. Williams has seven titles on Club All-England grass and was runner-up three times.
Williams needed to do all his hands, a repository of Court Center experience and a rapid hair adjustment to go over Riske, which severely affected the red-hot Barty Monday. Williams decided to put her hair into a tight base and went to finish Riske with punishing efficiency.
“I just had to get out of the way, set up the business base and do business,” said Williams. “I had to turn the button up and play hard. She was playing her heart out. ”
Riske said, with a smile: “In fact, it was very interesting for me to be on the other side, because I felt her up with her game and intensity. Yes, I hope she will take the title now. ”
There is still a remote possibility for Williams to claim two people titles in this contest: She later went on Tuesday until the last 16 in doubles mixed with the team's dream team Andy Murray.
