Angelique Kerber v Venus Williams Live
Veteran Venus Williams takes to the court in the semifinal of Wimbledon 2016 to take on German Angelique Kerber. This will be the 6th meeting between the two players, with Venus Williams winning 2 and Angelique Kerber winning 3.
Venus Williams is currently ranked 8th in the world, and is this tournament's 8th seed. The German Angelique Kerber is ranked 4th on the latest WTA Rankings, and is also the tournament's 4th seed. The 2016 Australian Open winner, comes into this game in good form, beating the likes of Laura Robson (6-2 6-2), Varvara Lepchenko (6-1 6-4), Carrina Witthoeft (7-6(11) 6-1), Misaki Doi (6-3 6-1), and Simona Halep (7-5 7-6(2)). The 4th seed's most recent defeat came at the hands of Carla Suarez Navarro at the Birmingham Open (6-4 1-6 7-5). The 36 year old 7 time Grand Slam Winner, has had to work very hard to get to this stage of the competition, beating the likes of Donna Vekic (7-6(3) 6-4), Maria Sakkari (7-5 4-6 6-3), Daria Kasatkina (7-5 4-6 10-8), Carla Suarez Navarro (7-6(3) 6-4), and Yaroslava Shvedova (7-6(5) 6-2).
Venus Williams last defeat was against Timea Bacsinszky at the French Open (6-2 6-4). Angelique Kerber comes into this game in finer form, and should be able to do Venus for stamina. I expect the 4th seed to progress to the finals.
