All-time meetings: Serena Williams 3-0 Barbora Strycova
Last meeting: Serena Williams beat Barbora Strycova 7-5, 6-4
Barbora Strycova is the surprise member of the last four in the women’s draw as an unseeded 33-year-old contemplating retirement upon entering this tournament, but she upset Johanna Konta’s rhythm throughout their match and was by far the better player. She will face Serena Williams, who conquered her own unseeded challenger Alison Riske in three sets, having never beaten the seven-time champion in three attempts. All three of their previous meetings came at Grand Slams, twice in 2012 at the Australian Open and Wimbledon and once again in Australia in 2017, with Strycova never managing to take a set. This could change on Thursday, as she rides the emotions of her most successful tournament, but Serena Williams will book her place in the final in the decider. The Czech has made it through largely unnoticed until now but, like Riske, she will likely struggle with nerves against the seven-time champion.
