The Women’s semi-finals took place at Wimbledon today and both matches were taken in straight sets. Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwańska were the two victorious players and they now meet in Saturday’s final.
It was another entertaining day at SW 19 where the two winners showed some real quality.
Radwanska was the first to book her place in the final with a 6-4 6-3 win over German Angelique Kerber.
It was a match that the Polish No.1 took full control of and never really looked in too much danger. Her joy was clear to see when the she wrapped the game up and she is now the first Polish female in a Grand Slam final since 1937.
The number three seed really looks to be showing her class in the women’s game and now finds herself in her first ever final at SW19. At just 23-year-old, Radwanska certainly has a bright future.
As for Serena Williams, she was looking at her devastating best on Centre Court this afternoon and looked unstoppable against third seed Victoria Azarenka.
Williams served a record breaking 24 aces and never really gave her opponent a chance to get into the match. The American took her match 6-3 7-6 and now looks in great shape to win her fifth title at the All English Tennis Club.
The 30-year-old wrapped up her first set in just 35 minutes. Williams’ elation was also clear to see when she served the winning point.
Both Azarenka and Kerber played their part in this fantastic women’s tournament though and are sure to come back stronger as both are still young and only seem to be getting better.
For now though, all the excitement turns to what looks to be an equally entertaining men’s semi-final day tomorrow.
Let’s hope the sun keeps on shining.
