The semifinals of Wimbledon took place Thursday, starting with Angelique Kerber and Aga Radwanska.
Angelique Kerber came out strong, breaking Agnieszka Radwanska en route to a 3-1 first set lead.
But Agnieszka Radwanska never lost serve again in the match, and converted three of three break points.
Angelique Kerber and Agnieszka Radwanska met at the net after Radwanska scored a 63 64 victory.
Angelique Kerber was playing her second Grand Slam semifinal, Agnieszka Radwanska her very first.
Serena Williams came out firing on Centre Court in the second semifinal against Victoria Azarenka.
The Serena Williams serve was the single most dangerous shot of the day, producing a whopping 24 aces.
Serena Williams tightened the screws at the end and, after closing it out, 63 76(6), let out a war cry.
Victoria Azarenka may have left without her first Wimbledon final but she could still leave with No.1.
If Serena Williams beats Agnieszka Radwanska in the final, Victoria Azarenka will return to No.1.
Meanwhile in the team event, Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta battled into the doubles semis.
The Williams sisters also reached the doubles semis, but without the battle - they rolled, 61 61.
