Wimbledon | Day 10 – Ladies Semi-finals Day

What to look out for today

Day 10 at Wimbledon is Ladies semi-finals day as the last four are whittled down to two on Centre Court, with temperatures expected to rise to 24 degrees, with scattered cloud and an outside chance of showers.

Serena Williams, in her 12th semi-final here, takes on Barbora Strycova, while Elina Svitolina and Simona Halep also go head-to-head.

Centre Court, 1pm start
• Elina Svitolina v Simona Halep
• Serena Williams v Barbora Strycova

No 3 Court, 11am start
• Anton Matusevich v Shintaro Mochizuki

Brit Watch
Anton Matusevich is the last Brit standing in the juniors after he defeated top seed Holger Rune in the 3rd round.
The 18-year-old, who is waiting for results in Maths, Further Maths and Economics this summer, now takes on 8th seed Shintaro Mochizuki in the quarter-finals and is hoping to win the tournament.

After the end of ‘Murena’ British pair Evan Hoyt and Eden Silva are the last ones standing in the mixed doubles and they are also in last-8 action in a match to be arranged not before 5pm.

Pick of the day
There will definitely be one debut Wimbledon finalist as Svitolina and Halep meet in a tasty looking tie. Svitolina is playing in her first Grand Slam semi-final and although Halep has been the World No 1 and won the French Open last year, she is also in uncharted territory at SW19. The Romanian will come into it as favourite, but Svitolina is capable of beating her.
Serena closing in on history.

Williams has been there and done that and in her 12th Wimbledon semi-final she will be the firm favourite against Strycova. The Czech player is having a standout run at this year’s tournament and will try and manoeuvre her opponent around the court, but it would be a big shock if Williams does not come through to her 11th final. She has won 7 of those already and will have her eye on a 24th Grand Slam singles title, which would tie her with Margaret Court.
