Star line-up for semi finals
Some of the tournament’s top seeds collide today in what’s shaping up to be two thrilling semi finals on day five of the ASB Classic.
First up on centre court is a showdown between doubles partners – former world number one, Ana Ivanovic, and world number 20, Kirsten Flipkens. Both conquered the first two rounds in straight sets, both on a mission for a place in Saturday’s final, after winning/being defeated in yesterday’s doubles semi-final.
The Flipkens/Ivanovic match will be followed by an All-American semi-final, with US number three Jamie Hampton and seven-time singles Grand Slam champion, Venus Williams. Hampton says she would like to play Venus.
