Playing with a sliced forehand, Tatjana Maria is through to the semi-finals of Wimbledon for the first time in one of the most unexpected and joyful tennis stories of recent years.

Playing an all-German match with world No.97 Jule Niemeier that was loaded with tension, the 34-year-old mother of two came from a set and a break down, and then 2-4 in the final set, to defeat her countrywoman and enjoy a standing ovation from the No.1 Court crowd.

This 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory was the greatest of all her fightbacks, or even the mother of all her Wimbledon battles.
