She’s just one game away from the final! Yes, Serena Williams is marching to French Open glory once again, but first she must beat Kiki Bertens in what could be a very tricky semifinal encounter on June 3 at 7am EST. Will Serena have enough in the tank to beat her stubborn opponent? Click to watch the live stream!
Who can stop Serena Williams, 34, when she’s playing this well? It will be a tough ask to expect Kiki Bertens, 24, who isn’t even ranked in the top 50 in the women’s game. It’s a case of David against Goliath, but we know how that one ended tennis fans, so can Kiki shock the odds and topple Serena over? Click down for the live stream to watch and find out!
Serena dropped her first French Open set this year in her quarterfinal match-up against Yulia Putintseva. But after overcoming poor form at the start, she powered through by winning the second set 6-4, then blitzed poor Yulia 6-1 in the final set to take the game. When she’s that ruthless no one stands a chance!
Kiki has worked wonders this tournament, and really has made a name for herself after years of early promise. Maybe finally now’s the time for her to push on and break into the top 20, and her chances will be strengthened by the opponents she’s dispatched along the way to reach this semi. The fact that she shocked Angelique Kerber in the first round will always remind us that surprises do happen.
But, to be honest, it would be a HUGE upset should it happen. Serena is on course to win her second French Open title and her fourth of all-time. She really is a miracle of the women’s game, and with 21 Grand Slam title wins to her name she will be continually recognized as one of the greats.
We’re going with our home girl here, Selena. She’s just too good and there’s not a player in the women’s tennis game that can compete with her when she’s on fire. And word to the wise, she is now playing fierce!
