Serena Williams ‘in good place’ before semi-final against Barbora Strycova

Fabio Fognini Nick Kyrgios likely to be fined by Wimbledon

Williams - who beat Alison Riske 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 on Tuesday to move on to the semifinals - was given a $10,000 penalty from the All England Club for damaging one of Wimbledon's practice courts, according to CNN.

"She has played so great and beaten so many great players here". Meanwhile, Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic was fined his full prize money of $56,500 at Wimbledon last week for not meeting "the required professional standards" in his first-round loss.

Konta committed 34 unforced errors in a match she led early when aiming to become the first Brit to win the women's singles since Virginia Wade in 1977.

Konta interrupted: "Please don't patronize me". You're being quite disrespectful and you're patronising me.

"I have never seen a player like Barbora who serves and volleys and covers the court like she does", added Dlouhy.

For Halep - who aside from Williams was the only player in the quarter-finals to have won a Grand Slam, taking the French Open a year ago - it is her second Wimbledon semi final. I think what I've done this grass court season has been a positive thing.

Clearly unhappy with the comment, Konta continued "I don't think you need to pick on me in a harsh way".

Riske said, with a smile: "It was really, actually, very interesting for me to be on the opposite end, because I felt her up her game and her intensity".

"I have energy, I feel fresh, I feel healthy, I feel confident when I step on the court". I had to buckle up and play hard. I still believe in the way I competed.

Serena, whose total of 97 Wimbledon match wins compares to the 82 combined of the other seven quarter-finalists, will look back on her victory with some relief.

Trailing 4-1 she mixed up her game, serve and volleying on occasion, sneaking to the net when she could, slicing and dicing and generally making her opponent play the way she did not want to play. "I got fined", Serena said.

A testy exchange followed, with the reporter saying that if Konta wants to win a Grand Slam tournament one day she should be willing to learn from matches like this one.

The BBC asked Murray if their team name is Serena's preferred choice of "MuRena" instead of "SerAndy" and he quickly said: "I think Serena's the boss, so whatever she says goes". "It was time for me to apologize to the person who deserved it the most".

"I would love to play".

The British number one deserved huge credit for getting to the last eight at a second consecutive grand slam but, as in the semi-finals of the French Open, when the favourite's tag was on her, Konta was found wanting. "I'm grateful for everything that it brings me". "Haven't spent lots of time with Serena", Murray said.
