The second semi-final clash in the Ladies’ section of Wimbledon 2015 will see Polish Agnieszka Radwanska face off against Garbine Muguruza on Thursday. Watch the Agnieszka Radwanska v Garbine Muguruza live streaming below & you can also find the latest betting tips for this semi-final here.
Muguruza made it to her first ever final with a three-set win over Radwanska.
It will be a fourth ever Grand Slam semi-final appearance for Radwanska, her first since the Australian Open 2014. She is also aiming to reach her second Wimbledon final – she had reached the final of Wimbledon in 2012.
The 26-year-old was also the first Polish player to reach the final of any major. Currently ranked 13th, it signifies a resurgence in Radwanska’s career after she had faded from the tour since her rise to a career high of second rank when she reached the final of Wimbledon.
Radwanska has had a very strong showing in this year’s championship. She has fired off 15 aces and has only dropped one set so far. She hit 13 winners and only had 7 unforced error in her quarter-final win over Madison Keys.
Radwanska’s opponent on Thursday will be one of the rising stars in women’s tennis. 21 year old Spaniard, Garbine Muguruza, will be making her first semi-final appearance in a major, having reached the quarter-finals of the French Open in 2014 and 2015.
Garbine’s previous best performance in Wimbledon was reaching the second round in 2013. She has come a long way since then as has been witnessed in this year’s grass court competition.
Ranked 20th in the world, Garbine has hit 21 aces so far. She has hit 46 winners in her last two matches and has knocked out higher ranked opponents like fifth seeded Caroline Wozniacki in the fourth round.
Garbine has a strong service game and she has dropped just two sets. What stands between her and a first grand slam final appearance is a resurgent Radwanska who is hoping to get back into the top 10 rankings after dropping out of it in the French Open.
Though this semi-final seems less attractive than the one played in the other half, it has a greater range of possibilities, less predictability and huge implications in carving out an even brighter future for either contestant.
