US Open 2014 Women's Semifinals: Peng vs. Wozniacki Preview and Prediction
USA TODAY Sports
Caroline Wozniacki follows through on a serve during her quarterfinal match at the 2014 U.S. Open.

Peng Shuai and Caroline Wozniacki will meet in a semifinal at the 2014 U.S. Open that features a late bloomer against a former No. 1 player. 

No matter which player prevails, this weekend, one of them will be playing for their first Grand Slam title. 

Peng, 28, will be playing in her first Slam semifinal. It will be the fourth semifinal appearance for 24-year-old Wozniacki. 

Peng, ranked No. 39,  reached a career-high No. 14 ranking in 2011 before a slow skid down. After defeating Belinda Bencic in the quarterfinals, an emotional Peng told the crowd at Arthur Ashe that she once considered giving up.

Wozniacki is experiencing her own revival. After swiftly moving up the rankings as a teen, Wozniacki fell out of the Top 10 earlier this year. She also went through a public breakup with her former fiancee Rory McIlroy.

Affirmation and celebration awaits the winner.
