Serena Williams is advancing to the semifinals at Wimbledon after beating 52nd-ranked Italian player Camila Giorgi 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 today. If she wins, it will be her eighth title at Wimbledon and 24th Grand Slam title overall, but her first after having a baby. The Associated Press quotes Williams on her feelings about the tournament:
"This is only my fourth tournament back, so I don't feel pressure. I don't feel I have to win this; I don't feel I have to lose this," Williams said. "I'm just here just to be here and to prove that I'm back. And I feel like I'm back. I still have a long way to go to be where I was."
Elsewhere at Wimbledon German player Julia Goerges defeated Kiki Bertens 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 to advance to the semifinals where she will face Williams.

"The Lakers players are excited to have a teammate who has been to nine NBA Finals. It's a huge step closer to returning the Lakers to the playoffs and to the NBA Finals."

"We're really happy. I'd like to thank all my teammates for all their hard work for this victory. Max [Richeze] did a really great job at the end. We all know that Peter Sagan is one of the greatest riders in the peloton so I'm really proud to be able to beat him."
