Venus ends Konta's run, reaches ninth Wimbledon final

Venus ends Konta's run, reaches ninth Wimbledon final”

"If somebody told me before the tournament I'd to be in semi-final, I for sure would take it", she said. "As a professional athlete, if you have fatigue, then that's tough".

'Don't get me wrong.

"The crowd was very nice to me", informed Venus.

A double fault from Djokovic and some loose play allowed the Frenchman to break in the second set and eventually force a tie-break, but the 12-time Grand Slam champion came through the extra points easily.

Williams, who is 37 years old, made her Wimbledon debut a few months before Ostapenko was born. Challenge fails her too. I couldn't have asked for more [this year]. Spaniard Garbine Muguruza will play Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia.

On the men's side, Novak Djokovic advanced to the quarterfinals by beating Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4. "All of us players have experienced that throughout our careers". "It's been a blessing", a jubilant Williams said.

'I mean, I think I definitely have a lot more to improve on.

"But in terms of how comfortable I felt out there and how focused I was on what I wanted to try and achieve out there, I felt really comfortable". "I think my appreciation for them I guess gets bigger now".

Konta now has her eyes on ending Britain's 40-year wait for a female singles champion and is looking forward to the showdown with Williams, who is in great form herself and is aiming to win her sixth Wimbledon crown. Williams, a four-time Olympic champion and bronze medalist at the Olympic Games Rio 2016, also is now the winningest active player at Wimbledon with a record of 87-14, moving past sister Serena at 86-10.

"That only strengthens my belief that if I'm ever in a position to be involved in a slam for the full fortnight, that I will be able to keep myself in that mental and physical state to be able to deal with hopefully one day playing for a title". She was just, quite frankly, better than me today'.

Williams used the vast weapons garnered through years of experience to unsettle Konta's rhythm - particularly on the Briton's previously solid serve.
