I fought through a few break points on her serve, kept on the pressure in the first set then she finally cracked.“Once I got rolling in the second it was like a freight train. You couldn’t stop it.”“I’d like to be champion” – VenusWilliams, meanwhile, dropped serve four times against Pavlyuchenkova but was much the stronger in the decisive moments, becoming the oldest woman to reach a Grand Slam semi-final since Martina Navratilova at Wimbledon in 1994.“I’m so excited. Today was such a hard-fought match. She never let up,” said the seven-time Grand Slam champion.“It’s wonderful to be here at the start of the year. I want to go further. I’m not happy with this.“I try to believe. Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more?“This mentality is not how champions are made. I’d like to be a champion, in particular this year. The mentality I walk on court with is: I deserve this.”Today, Serena Williams will play Britain’s Johanna Konta at about 02:00 GMT, following the match between Czech fifth seed Karolina Plisokva and Croatia’s Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.(BBC Sport)
