To the women with World Number One Serena Williams taking on 35th-ranked Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania for a spot in the final. Serena was not expected to have too much trouble, but after beating the fourth seed Victoria Azarenka in the second round, Begu was looking for huge upset.

But that's a tough task against the American who takes this point with a lovely drop shot, but it's still on serve in the first set.

Begu is trying to hang on, but what can you do about that and Serena would soon be up 5-4.
