Highlights of Wimbledon day 10”

U.S. player Venus Williams celebrates beating Britain's Johanna Konta during their women's singles semi-final match on the tenth day of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 13, 2017.br / Williams won 6-4, 6-2.

For his sixth title at Wimbledon, Venus Williams will argue with the first racket of Spain Garbine Muguruza defeated in the semifinals Magdalena Rybarikova (6:1, 6:1).

Johanna Konta beat Simona Halep in the quarter-final match to become the first British ladies' semi-finalist at Wimbledon after Virginia Wade in 1977.

Konta and Williams met for the first time in Wuhan, China, just after the British player had made her big breakthrough by reaching the fourth round at the US Open.

While she was second best on the day, Konta is full of belief that her time will come in the future and she believes she will reach Grand Slam finals and perhaps even win titles. Konta served for the match at 5-3 in the deciding set but Williams fought back to win.

Williams continued her strong serve in the second set to finish off Konta in one hour, 16 minutes.

"I've played in a lot of finals here", Williams said in her televised interview after the match.

"Usually it's her in these finals so I'm trying to represent the Williamses".

Mr Sherring acknowledged that he was "nervous" ahead of today's semi-final but "really excited" to watch his former player from the Centre Court stands.

"Conchita [Martinez, her coach] knows how to win here and hopefully she can tell me something - she has been helping me all the time with her experience and her tips". I was in the semi-finals, I'm happy about that but right now I'm disappointed. "It won't be a given but I'll give it my all", Williams said. "I will only ever try to do that in a positive way". She hasn't put a foot wrong at All England this month and will relish the prospect of making up for what has been an underwhelming year since she won the French Open title in 2016.

The five-time champion plans to lean on her seven-times champion sister for advice on how to stop Muguruza. "In that sense, I guess it makes it that much sweeter". "In terms of the home support I feel very excited and very humbled by it", she said.

Williams, playing in her 20th Wimbledon tournament, is 8-1 in her previous nine semifinal appearances at the grass-court major.
