WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — A quick look at Wimbledon:


Still looking for that 24th Grand Slam title, Serena Williams will first have to get through the semifinals at Wimbledon. The seven-time champion will be second on Centre Court against Barbora Strycova. Former No. 1 Simona Halep will face Elina Svitolina in the earlier match at the All England Club. Williams needs one more major title to equal the record set by Margaret Court. With 23, she already holds the professional-era record for Grand Slam singles titles, one more than Steffi Graf. Strycova and Svitolina will both be playing in the first major semifinal, while Halep will be trying to reach her fifth Grand Slam final.

“I don’t think we would have thought that Novak, me and Rafa, all of us, was going to be so solid, so dominant for so many years.” – Roger Federer on the continued success of the Big Three well into their 30s.
