This semifinal will have the feel of a Wimbledon final, as the two women who are playing the best tennis in the tournament will fight for a berth in the final.
Victoria Azarenka, who lost her No. 1 ranking to Maria Sharapova after the French Open, is looking to get back on track with a win at Wimbledon. She comes into the match after a fairly simple tournament. She defeated Tamira Paszek in straight sets in her quarterfinal match. Azarenka has yet to drop a set at Wimbledon, but this match will be a much different fight.
Serena Williams finds herself playing the best tennis of anyone left in the Wimbledon field. Williams comes into the semifinals ranked No. 6 in the world, and after a first-round exit at the French Open, she looks like she has regained her dominate form. She beat the defending Wimbledon champion, Petra Kvitova, in straight sets to advance to the finals.
Prediction: Williams in three sets.
Serena Williams is just playing too well to pick against her. This match will be much better than the final as two of the most athletic players in the world meet. Who knows what happened at the French, but Williams has figured it out at Wimbledon. She looks poised to win her fifth Wimbledon title.
