Serena Williams beats Camila Giorgi 3-6, 6-3, 6-4

Wow! Serena Williams seals it, and fittingly, it ends with an error from Giorgi. A crunching groundstroke from baseline is hit into the net from the Italian as Serena breaks into that familiar grin. She was a bit off-colour to start but somewhere in the second set, the magic returned. She marches into semi-finals with ease, and the hunt for Wimbledon title number eight remains firmly on course.

Serena Williams vs Camila Giorgi: Serena leads 5-4

What a service game there from Williams. She has been excellent from the back of the court, and she gives pretty much nothing to Giorgi in this clinical game. But guess what, Giorgi returns the favour in the very next game to make it 5-4. This girl can play, but a spate of unforced errors has meant that the American is still at the break.

Preview: Serena Williams is excited to face an opponent whose game she's familiar with in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Seven-time champion Williams has won all three of her meetings with first-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist Camila Giorgi, with the most recent coming in the first round of the 2016 Australian Open. Despite the two-year gap since their previous meeting, Williams professed to having watched 52nd-ranked Giorgi play "a lot."

Having shaken off any rust that may have remained from her absence, Williams appears to be closing in on top form at the right time.

The match that precedes Williams on Centre Court promises to be more competitive. With the top 10 women having all been eliminated, No 11 Angela Kerber is the highest-seeded player left in the tournament. She faces 14th-seeded Daria Kasatkina, just two weeks after beating the Russian in a third-set tiebreaker on the grass courts of Eastbourne, tying their head-to-head record at 3-3.

Both two-time Grand Slam champion Kerber and 21-year-old Kasatkina reached the quarterfinals at last month's French Open. The other last-eight matches have 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko take on Dominika Cibulkova in a meeting of former Wimbledon quarterfinalists, while 13th-seeded Julia Goerges and 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens have both reached this stage at the All England Club for the first time.
