Wimbledon 2012 - Serena Williams v Victoria Azarenka

Social Sharing: 

Serena WilliamsSerena Williams is back once again in the semi-finals at the All England Club, and if she continues to win, she will once again be holding a Grand Slam Trophy. (Williams 8/13 in Wimbledon 2012 betting).

Williams knocked out defending champion Petra Kvitova in yesterday's quarter-finals 6-2, 7-5, and although Azarenka may be the world No.2, Williams' form makes the American look like the world No.1.

With a bunch of aces from some impressive huge serves, Williams booked her place in tomorrow's semi-finals, and appears to actually be getting stronger as the tournament goes on. Williams said: "You cannot play a defending Wimbledon champion and not up your game. I had to get serious."

The 30-year-old commented earlier in the week that she is yet to play her best tennis, nor perform as she would wish, but her performances so far in this tournament speak otherwise.

Her opponent Victoria Azarenka stayed on course for a first Wimbledon title by cruising past Tamira Paszek in the quarters, and is beginning to look more like the player who owned the WTA Tour for much of the first 3 months of the year, but her victory over Paszek was her hardest yet, so will this be the end of the road for the Belarusian? (Azarenka 5/4 in Wimbledon 2012 betting).

She said: "The games were so close, it was a difficult match. I am still far away from winning the tournament, but happy to be in the semi-finals. There is no better opponent than Serena for me. It isn't going to be easy."
