23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams rallied from a set down to dismiss Camila Giorgi and reach her first grand slam semi-final since becoming a wife and a mother.
Serena fought back from a set down to defeat the daring Giorgi, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Giorgi enjoyed a confident start, outhitting Serena by eight winners to six as she won the first set and opened up a 0-30 lead in the second game of the second stanza.
Serena steadied from there though, breaking serve for the first time and then going on to level the match.
Serena earned a vital break early in the decider and held on for the next four games, turning to her powerful serve to dig her out of trouble on a few occasions.
The American will feature in her 11th semi-final at Wimbledon where she will lock horns with 13th seed Julia Goerges on Thursday.
Goerges also recovered from a set down to beat Kiki Bertens, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
