Serena Williams v Elena Vesnina Live
The semifinals of the Wimbledon 2016 tournament is upon us, and it promises a lot of action. One of the games sees American Serena Williams play against Russian Elena Vesnina. This will be the 5th meeting between the players, with Serena winning on all four previous occasions.
Serena Williams, who is ranked number 1 in the latest WTA Rankings is the favorite to win this tournament, while Elena Vesnina came into this tournament as World number 50. The American 21 time Grand Slam winner has been in very good form in this competition, beating the likes of Amra Sadikovic (6-2 6-4), Christina McHale (6-7(7) 6-2 6-4), Annicka Beck (6-3 6-0), Svetlana Kuznetsova (7-5 6-0), and Anastasia Pavluychenkova (6-4 6-4). The last defeat for the World number 1 was against Garbine Muguruza in the Roland Garros final (7-5 6-4). To get to the semifinal stage of the competition, Elena Vesnina has also had to win five games. These wins were against Tamira Paszek (7-5 6-2), Andrea Petkovic (7-5 6-3), Julia Boserup (7-5 7-5), Ekaterina Makarova (5-7 6-1 9-7), and Dominika Cibulkova (6-2 6-2).
The Russian player's last defeat was to Karolina Pliskova at the Eastborne Open (6-1 6-3). Serena Williams is top seed in this tournament for a reason, and I expect her to win this game and make the tournament final.
