The German Tatjana Maria, 34 years old and number 103 in the WTA classification, reached the Wimbledon semifinals on Tuesday by beating her compatriot Jule Niemeier, 97th tennis player in the world, 4-6, 6-2 and 7-5. 

“I have goosebumps, it is a dream to experience this with my family, with my two girls. Less than a year ago, she was giving birth… it's crazy, ”said Maria in front of the audience on track No.1 at the All England Club in London.

Until now, the German had not passed the third round of a Grand Slam tournament, the stage in which she had fallen at Wimbledon in 2015.
