‘Ridiculous’: Cibulkova slams Wimbledon officials over call row

Adjust Comment Print

Goerges, seeded 13th, faces seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams on Thursday for a place in Saturday's final.

After a insane and awesome final game Angelique Kerber, the only player to reach at least the quarter-final stage in each of the Grand Slams this season, reached the seventh major semifinal as she beat Daria Kasatkina for the fourth time in her career in seven meetings.

Goerges is at the other end of the spectrum, preparing for her maiden major semi-final after also recovering from a set down to beat Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1.

The 11th-seeded Kerber, who was the Wimbledon runner-up in 2016, twice broke 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko's serve.

2017 Roland Garros Champion Jelena Ostapenko will hope her twinkle toes will get her to a second Slam final.

Next up is last year's French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko, who battled back from 5-2 down in the first set to win 7-6 (7-4), 6-0 against Aliaksandra Sasnovich. Just when it looked like she had found her groove to get back into the set, Cibulkova dropped her serve giving Ostapenko another.

When a panicked Goerges error wrapped up the first set, Serena's dominance was so total that the American, whose emotions are usually on full display, barely acknowledged the moment. (Though it was a good match.) When Williams was asked about her quarterfinal opponent, she didn't give the Giorgi-style answer of "I've never heard of her".

"I had some great matches", she said. The 2017 French Open victor had 33 winners against just six for Cibulkova, and finished with five break points. The last time two German women reached any Grand Slam semifinals was at the 1993 French Open, featuring Steffi Graf and Anke Huber.

"It never happened to me in my career that this would happen".

The 29-year-old, who met up with Germany football Mats Hummels at Wimbledon on Wednesday, said: "I think Angie did a much better job than I did the last years because she was nearly in every semi-final".

"I played her a couple times, she has a very powerful game".

Thirty-third ranked Cibulkova, who has responded to being bumped out of the seedings by Serena Williams' elevation to 25th, was still fighting her corner in a news conference. Just going to prepare well for the match. "I just want to be more of a role model for my daughter, for lots of people out there that just want to be inspired".

The 2017 French Open champion hasn't lost a set en route to her last-four meeting with two-time Grand Slam victor Angelique Kerber.

She repeatedly went for winners on her service returns, a strategy that helped her break Cibulkova five times.

Federer was in blinding form during the first set, which blazed by in 16 minutes, but after the Swiss missed four break points in the opening game of the second set, Mannarino made more of a match of it. She went on a half-hour run in which she took the last four games of the first set and took a 3-0 lead in the second.

Juan Martin del Potro set up a Wimbledon quarterfinal clash against Rafael Nadal when he downed Gilles Simon of France 7-6 (7/1), 7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 7-6 (7/5).
