Frustrated Konta hits out at 'patronising' questioning after Wimbledon exit

Fabio Fognini Nick Kyrgios likely to be fined by Wimbledon

Williams won the first set after being down a break twice in the opener.

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.

"She's in a good place at the moment". I want to make sure the operation I've had lasts for as long as possible.

"In the way you're asking your question, you're being quite disrespectful and you're patronizing me", she said. Konta was asked if she "could have done better" to which she asked if that was the journalists "professional tennis opinion?"

Konta had been hoping to match the achievement of England's Lionesses, many of whom were watching from the Royal Box, by reaching the semi-finals.

Strycova, who served a six-month doping ban in 2013 due to a banned substance being in a supplement, said confronting 37-year-old Williams held no fears for her. "Yeah, I don't have much else to say to your question".

"If you don't want to accept that answer or you don't agree with it that's fine, but I still believe in the tennis I play and still believe in the way I competed". 'I would love to play.

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

With Murray still on the road to recovery from a potentially career-ending injury, the doubles has been a liberating experience for him and a stepping stone towards a full scale return to the singles tour, potentially as soon as next month's US Open in NY.

Justice Department signals to court it's still fighting for citizenship question
Commerce Secretary Ross already noted that the Census Bureau started printing the questionnaires without the citizenship question. Opponents of adding the citizenship question to the census pointed out that an executive order can not supersede a court ruling.

Last night Murray ruled out returning to singles before the end of the season.

Strycova will have taken a lot of positives from the way that Alison Riske really attacked Serena in the fourth round. So a return at the U.S. Open - where he won the first of his three Grand Slam titles in 2012 - doesn't appear to be on the cards.

Williams had looked as if she was just going up through the gears, getting better in the tournament, but she had a sluggish time of things against Riske winning 6-4 4-6 6-3. "It was time for me to apologize to the person who deserved it the most".

Serena Williams will play Barbora Strýcová (Czech Republic) on Friday in the semifinals.

Strycova, whose previous best at a Grand Slam was the 2014 quarter-final also at Wimbledon, outplayed Britain's Johanna Konta once she extricated herself from a 4-1 deficit in the first set.

But her day wasn't done with a win over Riske because she teammed up with Andy Murray for mixed doubles at the All England Club. I think they are both having a lot of fun'. "I mean, it will either happen or it won't", she said.

Serena will have to be on her toes and ready for anything at any time; so far, when she's played Strycova, she has been.

Murray had been attempting to be the second man since Rod Laver to lift both the men's singles and mixed doubles trophy at Wimbledon.
