The Italian enjoyed an historic ten days at SW19, with her reaching the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career, though her run came to an end on centre court, when she was beaten 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 by Serena Williams.
While there has been a sense of inevitability about Williams' march through the rounds, dropping just one set on her way and yet to face a top-50 player, Gorges says it is "unreal" for her to be into her first Grand Slam semi-final.
The upsets continued at 2018 Wimbledon with the last top seed falling as seventh seed Karolina Pliskova was sent packing by 20th seed Kiki Bertens, the Dutchwoman prevailing 6-3, 7-6 (1) to open up play on Court 2.
Williams raised her intensity level, added some velocity to her groundstrokes and some decibels to her growls and powered back to win 3-6 6-3 6-4, a scoreline that was a touch closer than what actually transpired on court.
July 10, 2018 Serena Williams of the U.S.in action during her quarter final match against Italy's Camila Giorgi. "I think everyone here has a great chance so you have to take it", Goerges said.
Serena Williams continues to close in on a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles crown after advancing to her 11th Wimbledon semifinal.
"That's pretty impressive that she always plays like that it doesn't matter who she plays".
Williams stepped up to the line at 5-4 and brought up match point with an ace before completing victory when Giorgi could only push a forehand into the net. It didn't take long for her to rebound, a handsome volley restoring her break advantage at 4-3.
Williams revealed she does not want her daughter to follow in her footsteps.
This is all brand new for Goerges, who had never even been to a Grand Slam quarterfinal before this week.
"It was tougher than the scoreline", Williams said. I'm just like an artist and I'm playing with the heart, yeah.
Ostapenko roared into her first Wimbledon semi-final with a display of power-hitting against Dominika Cibulkova. "I feel like I'm back, but I still have a long way to go to get to where I was".
"You're only as good as your last win".
"I didn't expect it, honestly", said Goerges, who lost in the first round at the All England Club each of the past five years.
Cibulkova did her best to try and hang on but the Slovakian was left chasing shadows as Ostapenko blasted a backhand victor on her first match point to reach the last four without dropping a set in this year's tournament.
"You feel you get a little bit tight, especially if you have your third or fourth match point again".
Li said she did not miss playing on the tour, but did miss the rough and tumble of testing herself against the best. "Well, it's still one more match to go for both of us".
It took a period of accepting the nuances of the surface, to see the results that have taken her further than in any other Grand Slam.
