Venus becomes oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist for 23 years

Venus Williams became the oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist for 23 years as the five-time champion brushed aside French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 7-5 on Tuesday.

      Aged 37, Williams’ 73-minute masterclass on Centre Court made her the most senior player to reach the last four since Martina Navratilova in 1994.
The American star, an eight-time Wimbledon finalist, will play Britain’s Johanna Konta or Romania’s Simona Halep in Thursday’s semi-finals.
World number 11 Williams, beaten in this year’s Australian Open final, is chasing a first major title since winning Wimbledon in 2008.
