Wimbledon 2014 Women's Semifinal: Bouchard vs. Halep Preview and Prediction
Ben Curtis/Associated Press

The women’s semifinal between Eugenie Bouchard and Simona Halep is a dream matchup and a foreshadowing of the next generation of women’s talent. (These two are like a couple of avoxes; they barely make a noise when they play.)

Bouchard has proven to be the slayer of the slayers of champions. She defeated Alize Cornet in the fourth round after Cornet defeated Serena Williams. Bouchard followed that up by beating Angelique Kerber, who defeated Maria Sharapova in her fourth-round match.

Halep has been surgical and rattled off 11 straight games in her quarterfinal match against Sabine Lisicki (this after being down 1-4 in the first set). Halep is a French Open finalist and has her eyes set on the Wimbledon final.

This could be the match of the tournament, and the likely winner of the whole thing may come out of this semifinal pairing.
