Elina Svitolina books Wimbledon semi-final showdown with Simona Halep

Breakthrough China's Zhang Shuai returns the ball to Ukraine's Dayana Yastremska

In the second set, Halep broke twice for a 5-1 lead and converted her second match point with a forehand at the net.

Svitolina became the first Ukrainian woman to reach the last four of a slam after recording a 7-5 6-4 win over Muchova on No.1 Court.

No. 7 Simona Halep is the highest seeded woman left in the draw. Considering Svitolina's lack of experience at Grand Slam events, she will enter this match at a disadvantage.

Asked what she had learned from a last-four defeat to Eugenie Bouchard five years ago, the former world number one said: "I'm a different person".

There were nerves, understandably, and Gauff's serve came under immediate scrutiny with Halep securing a break in the first game.

Halep plays her quarter final against Shuai Zhang today on Court No.1 knowing that her opponent holds a 2-1 winning advantage over her.

It was only after he let his guard down and made a decision to shoot a quick, five-second video that a bull came out of nowhere. Injuries are also not uncommon at the event, with records dating back to 1910 listing 16 deaths, according to the outlet.

Serving for the place in the semis, Simona held at 30 with a forehand victor, taking the set 6-1 and staying on the title course.

On the other side of the coin, Elina Svitolina also won her previous match in straight sets.

"I'm really happy that I can play again in the quarter-finals", said Halep, who was also in the last eight in 2016 and 2017.

Simona Halep says she has a new-found love for grass after beating Zhang Shuai to move into the semi-finals at Wimbledon.

"I try to adjust myself, my body, to this court". She was stopped in the 2nd round of the French Open this May. She is now ranked 27th and lost in the first round at this year's Wimbledon tournament. During the win, Simona Halep served exceptionally well. At this stage of the tournament, Simona Halep will play against Elina Svitolina from Ukraine.

Now reigning at World No. 7 position Simona Halep turned the tables around after defeating startling "Cori Coco" with a comfortable margin of 6-3, 6-3 in Round of 16 on Maniac Monday.
