Peters Township's Alison Riske falls to Serena Williams in Wimbledon quarterfinals

Fabio Fognini 'I wish a bomb would explode in Wimbledon'

Every time the British hope erred the crowd "ahhhed" and it gradually sapped Konta's confidence.

England's last hope in the singles draw lost 7-6 (5) 6-1 on Centre Court to Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic on Wednesday morning (NZ time) and then accused the United Kingdom media of "picking on me".

In the final, Williams lost a game after arguing with the referee, prompting an global discussion about the unequal treatment of women in the sport of tennis.

Meanwhile, Fognini was fined £2,300 after saying Wimbledon should be bombed.

In the emotional piece, Williams addressed the 2018 U.S. Open final - speaking candidly about her emotions surrounding the match.

"In fact, I was so sure that when I packed up my life and left my dad's house to move in with my sister Venus, I told him he could keep my US Open trophy". Making those comebacks all the more impressive is the quality of competition she was facing: #9 Sloane Stephens, followed by #6 Petra Kvitova, who is a two-time champion at the All England Club. The closest thing you'll find to a the endangered species of Grass-Court Specialist, Riske won a pair of titles coming in to Wimbledon; she then won three straight three-set matches last week, showing great courage.

The tennis superstar suffered a meltdown during the final game of the tournament last September when she lost her cool and verbally attacked chair umpire Carlos Ramos after he accused her of cheating and receiving signals from her coach in the stands.

Williams damaged the court after throwing her racket during practice before the Wimbledon tournament began, the BBC reported.

Wendy Williams' Son Kevin Hunter Jr. Gets Dismissal in Assault Case

Even if Williams was hardly ideal, she got by, aided by her greatest-in-the-game serve and Riske's miscues. Late in the second set, she was visited by a trainer, who applied extra tape to the ankle. At this point, Williams wrote that she felt, "passionately compelled to stand up for [herself]" and demanded an apology from the umpire.

The 37-year-old Williams, who is two wins away from equalling Margaret Court's Grand Slam singles title record haul of 24, looked far from convincing as Riske pushed her the whole way over an engrossing two-hour duel.

Considering Konta is a three-time grand slam semi-finalist with a career-high ranking of four and was a clear favourite for Tuesday's match, it did not seem unreasonable for her to be asked whether she could have performed better.

Svitolina will make her debut in that round at any major tournament thanks to beating Karolina Muchova of the Czech Republic 7-5, 6-4.

She was spraying errors off her forehand - always the most likely wing to break down - but at least took the set to a tie-break. Then she earned yet another break point on a thrilling 10-stroke exchange, using a drop shot to bring Riske forward and delivering a volley victor.

"Is that in your professional tennis opinion?" she snapped during a post-match news conference.

In the other quarter final, Ukraine's Elina Svitolina, the eighth seed, takes on Czech Karolina Muchova.
