Venus Williams reaches Wimbledon semis once again

Catch all the live action of the Wimbledon 2017 quarter final clash between Venus Williams and Jelena Ostapenko through our live blog.

Ostapenko advanced to her first Wimbledon quarterfinal after converting her eighth match point to beat Elina Svitolina 6-3, 7-6 (8-6).

Kuznetsova first reached the last eight in 2003, repeating the run in 2005 and 2007, and a fourth quarter-final appearance for the 32-year-old seventh seed was secured with a clinical performance against Polish player Radwanska, the 2012 runner-up.

"In the first couple of rounds, I wasn't playing my best and I was fighting, but I feel like every match, I'm getting better and better", Ostapenko, a junior Wimbledon champion in 2014, told the WTA website.

In a potentially classic semi-final on Thursday, Konta faces American star Venus.

Ostapenko netted a backhand to be broken again in the third game of the second set, but benefitted from a rare lapse in Williams' concentration to get it back on serve. The contest was held over after the marathon battle between Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller finished late on Monday.

Muguruza is the No. 14 seed and will take on No. 7 Svetlana Kuznetsova on Tuesday.

Facing her was a 37-year-old competing in her 100th singles match at Wimbledon where she made her debut in the same month that Ostapenko was born in 1997.

The 2015 Wimbledon finalist Muguruza, seeded No.14, is now set to play against the victor between Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova and American Coco Vandeweghe.

"Muguruza impressed me a lot today, I am not the favourite again but let's see".

I knew she was not going to give much away for free so I definitely had to be the one to create my own chances.

"I think it was a wrong decision not to play us last night, we could have played". Venus, wonderfully poised and strikingly precise, used her hitman serve to stunning effect, picking up her 86th win here. Each channel will cover a different match, with play running through the early afternoon.

The U.K. hospital recently won a court case against the couple that allows it to turn off life support and let Charlie die. The Vatican children's hospital studied whether it was possible for Great Ormond Street to transfer Charlie to Rome.

Muguruza, who has reached the last four for the loss of one set, brought up match point with an ace down the middle and won it courtesy of another big serve to earn a semi-final meeting with Magdalena Rybarikova or Coco Vandeweghe, whose match was delayed by rain. Venus now leads 2-1 in the second set and also one break up. "They're fighting right alongside me".

Williams is working towards her 6th Wimbledon title and now holds a 86-14 winning record at the tournament.

In their first meeting, Williams set the tone against Ostapenko by breaking the Latvian in her first service game.

"I really can not believe it, " gasped the 87th-ranked Rybarikova, the eighth lowest ranked slam semifinalist in history.

"I was not happy to not play last night". I was not playing bad, but I was just not playing the way I wanted to play.
