Who is playing?
The first semifinal in the women’s section of the draw will see Japan’s former US Open winner Naomi Osaka take on surprise entrant Jennifer Brady. And this will be followed by the 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams playing against Victoria Azarenka for a place in the final.
Osaka has been typically clinical form, while being stretched in a couple of matches while Brady hasn’t dropped a set or lost more than four games in a set. On the other hand, Serena has struggled and at times looked scrappy but still found ways to win while Azarenka continues to find a level close to when she won those two Grand Slam titles.

Both the semifinals will be played on Thursday, September 10 with the first match to begin at around 7 pm local time, which is 12 midnight BST or 9 am if you are in Japan. The second semifinal will begin after the first finishes.
