Toronto SF: Others scramble for scraps

Li Na vs. Sorana Cirstea

Surprise semi-finalist, Sorana Cirstea will have her hands full against Li Na, who was impressive against Cibulkova in their quarter-final match. Li turned up the aggression against the Slovak and she will be looking to do the same against Cirstea. Bad news for the Romanian is that Li already had her warm up match against an aggressive hitter. She is not going to need more hints on how to handle a hard-hitter with a suspect serve. Cirstea will need to hope for a break down like Kvitova, which is unlikely.

Pick: Li in 2 sets

Serena Williams vs. Agnieszka Radwanska

The dominance of Serena is so impressive that I believe the rest of the field is just playing for scraps. They just want to gain as many points as possible before meeting their defeat against Williams. Radwanska struggled against Errani and will be grateful for a quick death against Serena. Williams' superior power will plummet the Pole into submission in double quick time. The American is barely losing games, so I expect nothing less here.

Pick: Serena Williams in 2 sets
