France Advances to Semi-Finals of World Cup, Venus Out at Wimbledon but Serena Heading to Round 4 and Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods Plan $10 Million Match
France became the first team to secure a spot in the semi-finals at the 2018 FIFA World Cup today, with a 2-0 victory over Uruguay. Antoine Griezmann scored the game-winning goal despite the ball initially hitting Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. This win makes France only the fourth team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup on six different occasions, along with Germany, Italy and Brazil. FIFA.com quotes France coach Didier Deschamps on the win:
"I think we deserved the result, we played against a beautiful Uruguayan side but we were better than they were today. I have a younger team, and they've already played as a team before, but today's requirements were even higher because the opponents become better as you progress.
Five-time champion Venus Williams lost her third round at Wimbledon to Dutch player Kiki Bertens. The number 20 seeded Bertens match win (6-2, 6-7 (5), 8-6) marks the first time she'd advance to the fourth round. Wimbledon.com quotes Bertens on the victory:
"I can still not really believe it," she said. "It was such a tough match and such a big fight. It was tough because I played her in Miami and had a few match points and I lost. Of course that was going through my mind sometimes. But I was like - OK, keep on going for it. This is Wimbledon, third round, you've never reached the fourth round before so you've nothing to lose so just keep going for your shots.
Elsewhere in the tournament Venus's sister Serena did, however, win a 7-5, 7-6 (2) victory over France's Kristina Mladenovic to advance to the fourth round.
Golf.com reports that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are planning a $10 million winner-take-all match. The match was initially planned for July 3rd in Las Vegas as a prime-time TV special but never came to fruition. Mickelson confirmed that they were "working on a different date". Mickelson commented further on his growing friendship with Woods:
"As we've developed a good relationship, we've started to collaborate on some other things that have allowed us to achieve things that we couldn't do on our own. Like this match. I couldn't do it on my own. He couldn't do it on his own. But together, we're [trying] to create something pretty special."
