Eugenie Bouchard v Simona Halep Live
The 13th seeded from Canada, Eugenie Bouchard will be squaring off against the third seeded Simona Halep from Romania in the 2014 Wimbledon semi-finals on Thursday.
Simona Halep overcame the finalist from last year here, Lisicki securing a win in rather comfortable fashion while Eugenie Bouchard prevailed over the ninth seed German, Angelique Kerber in straight sets to secure a semifinal spot.
The Romanian lagging 4-1 behind in the opening set then turned the tables around winning the next 11 games in a chain to secure the semi-final ticket in just under an hour. Simona Halep also created history in the process by becoming the first Romanian woman to make to the semi-finals at the All England Club in Open era.
Riding on a similar achievement, the teen sensation Eugenie Bouchard is also the first Canadian women to reach the semis of Wimbledon and the first women to reach semis in each of the first three Grand Slams of the year and looks to be in some form having won all of her matches comfortably without dropping a single set.
There is no doubt that both these ladies will be giving their heart and soul on the court on Thursday to make history for them and make their country proud. Seeing the build-up to the match, it looks to be an intriguing contest on the cards.
