The first semi-final is particularly intriguing as both Angelique Kerber and Agnieszka Radwanska are extremely inexperienced when it comes to the latter stages of major championships. Kerber has been the surprise story of the past 12 months and she may just have the edge.

Following that is the blockbuster clash between four-time champion Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka. Azarenka may be looking good but she's won just one of their past eight matches.
