'Didn't do it for the hype': Kenin stops Coco in Australia
Like Gauff, Kenin is a young — although, at 21, not quite as young — American and she reached her first major quarterfinal with the victory. “I want to show who I am, show my best tennis, show why I'm there, why I belong,” the 14th-seeded Kenin said. When it ended, appropriately enough, on a missed backhand by Gauff, Kenin dropped her racket at the baseline and covered her face as tears welled in her eyes. “Anyone would get pretty emotional for the first time,” said Kenin, who next faces another woman making her Slam quarterfinal debut, 78th-ranked Ons Jabeur of Tunisia. Kenin laughed as she described the scene this way: “She's like, ‘Good job.’ I'm like, ‘You, too.'
Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon semifinals
Julian Finney/Getty Images(CNN) - Serena Williams reached her 12th Wimbledon semifinal with a gritty three-set victory against fellow American Alison Riske on Centre Court Tuesday. So just the keyword is getting fit and getting back into match play injury-free. But Riske's forehand was firing, and she broke Williams immediately, only for her compatriot to break again for 4-4. Williams had several breakpoints in a roller-coaster eighth game and eventually clinched the break when Riske double-faulted. Williams will also team up with two-time Wimbledon men's singles champion Andy Murray back out on Centre Court for their mixed doubles second-round match against Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo.
