Australian Open 2016, Semi Final: Kerber v Konta (04:00)

This is their first meeting.

It has been an amazing tournament for Konta. A slam final though would appear to be out of reach as Kerber played a mostly superb match to beat Azarenka in the last round.

No one expected Konta to get this far and there will be no pressure of expectation on her. She will of course have nerves playing for her first slam final but you would think she will be able to go out and enjoy the experience.

The pressure is firmly on Kerber’s shoulders. She is the top 10 player and most will be expecting her to reach her first slam final. Kerber doesn’t always deal with pressure like that very well.

I don’t think Konta can take this without Kerber handing it to her. As we know this can happen! Hopefully Konta gets an early break of serve for a better price on Kerber.
