Serena Williams vs. Na Li
Serena leads series 3-1
Last Meeting - 2009 Stanford R32
Serena won 6-3, 7-6(6)
Serena Williams is one of the few players on the circuit who takes defeat, any defeat very seriously and no matter what the stage, she brings her best efforts to prove her supremacy over someone who has been 'troublesome' in the past. Similar is the case with her match-up today with Chinese wonder-woman Na Li, who literally pushed her to limits in their previous encounter last year and with a win over Venus Williams, is an opponent with a CONCERN. On paper, it will be safe to say that Serena will secure a win easily, but Na Li's giant-killing form is capable of causing another upset that previously struck on Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki. Serena, on the other hand, looked confident till her pre-quarterfinal match with Samantha Stosur, but survived a real scare in Victoria Azarenka, when she found herself trailing 2-6, 0-4 in the match, just to rebound and win it from there. Above everything else, it's the mental toughness that will see Williams through in today's semifinal.
TennisEarth's Pick - Serena Williams in two tight sets.
Justine Henin vs. Jie Zheng
Henin leads series 1-0
Last Meeting - 2005 Toronto R16
Henin won 6-2, 6-4
Justine Henin is looking stronger than ever at this year's Australian Open, which happens to be only her second event after her return from a long hiatus. She took out some of the finest players in the draw before setting up the semifinal clash with Chinese Jie Zheng. Zheng, the second Chinese woman in the last four after Na Li, has been equally destructive in her previous matches including her demolition of Russian Maria Kirilenko in the quarterfinals. Henin, on the other hand, beat an in-form Nadia Petrova to reach the semifinals and looked in control throughout the match. Despite the so-called 'Chinese Revolution' in Grand Slam tennis, a Williams-Henin final looks more of a possibility.
TennisEarth's Pick - Henin in straight sets
