A new chapter will be written in one of tennis' most interesting rivalries when Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka face off in Thursday's semi-finals. In this episode we discuss Azarenka's demolition of Elise Mertens, the way we're having to consider her as a real force in the game once again, her different mindset, Serena's problem solving against Tsvetana Pironkova, and the way both players will relish the challenge. On the men's side, Daniil Medvedev beat Andrey Rublev in a match which was memorable for Rublev's banana abuse and Medvedev's sudden fitness struggles at the end of the match.The Tennis Podcast is presented by Catherine Whitaker and David Law, and features Matt Roberts.
