Serena Williams v Sara Errani Live
It will be the top seeded Serena Williams who will be in action in her semi-final at the French Open 2013 on Thursday against Italy's fifth seeded Sara Errani.
Williams has had the form going for her and she will look to extend her winning streak to far beyond the 30 odd matches she has won so far. In this tournament itself, she's dropped only one set and that was in the quarter-final to Svetlana Kuznetsova. She won the first set but failed to wrap up the match, thereby allowing the Russian to claw back by winning the second set.
However, before that Williams has lost only 10 games in the tournament and will be quite a handful against Errani, who is looking to make it to her second successive French Open final.
Errani has had a couple of tough matches in the tournament so far. she was stretched to three sets by Carla Suarez Navarro in her fourth round match before being taken to the tie-breaker - and expectedly so - by A Radwanska in the quarter-final.
What works against Errani is an obvious fact - her opponent is no mood to relent and there's not much positive coming out of their previous meetings too. Errani has played Williams five times and lost on all the five occasions. This includes two matches on clay including one this year at Madrid.
Williams should win this one in straight sets.
