    Angie to win in straight sets,providing she plays offensive tennis and remains focus.She played a great game against Vika,her first win,she needs to display the same against Konta.

    Brad thinks Johanna can win but he's stacking the odds 70% in Angie's favour.

    Angie/Johanna is the second semi-final up today and will follow the Serena/Aga match (which begins at 1.30pm Melbourne time).

    Strong hold by Konta, who's won 4 games in a row. I'm hoping the British underdog wins it.

    Kerber breaks and wins the 1st set 75.Konta isnt getting many points on her first serve,especially her 2nd serve,Angie is a good returner,1st set was competitive,Konta like to take the ball on early,on the front foot,though at crucial times in the 1st set it cost her.

    Another break for Angie she leads 4-1 2nd set,Konta continues to make too many UFE in the 2nd set,also her serve has let her down,she hasn't played Angie before,I feel she is hesitant,to me she hasn't got a good game plan.

    Yep, too many UFEs. I hope she follows it up well, anyway.

    Pretty cute on-court interview with Kerber...she was charmingly breathless. Who is the woman doing the interview?

    Congratulations to Angie in making your first GS final defeating Konta 75 62

    I would also like to congratulate Konta,after this tournament she will be in the Top 30,considering last year at the AO,where she played qualies and went out in the 1st rd,what a difference a year makes.Well done and good luck for the rest of the year.
