It’s Serena Williams vs Caroline Wozniacki in one of the 2014 Cincinnati Open WTA semifinal matches on Saturday, August 16.

The pair are set to face off on Center Court starting at 1 p.m. EDT.

The match will be broadcast on ESPN2.

Williams of the United States, ranked No. 1 in the tournament and No. 1 in the world, defeated No. 8 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia 6-1, 6-3 in the quarterfinals after taking out No. 13 Flavia Pennetta of Italy 6-2, 6-2 in the previous round.

Wozniacki of Denmark, ranked No. 12 in the tournament and No. 12 in the world, defeated No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in the quarterfinals, 6-4, 7-6(5).

The women have played eight times overall so far, with Wozniacki only winning once–in Miami in 2012.

Williams says that she wants to win but doesn’t feel pressure.

“Sure, I’d love to win here,” Williams said. “But at the same time, I don’t want to put that pressure on myself. I’m trying to stay pressure-free.”

She lost in the final last year to Victoria Azarenka, dropping a third-set tiebreaker. She has reached the semifinals only one other time (2006).

Williams’ overall performance Friday was one of the best of her six Cincinnati appearances.

“I feel really good,” said Williams, who had seven aces. “I feel I’m really relaxed now.”

Wozniacki has arrived at the semifinals in Cincinnati for the first time in seven tries.

Wozniacki made her WTA debut as a 15-year-old wild card in Cincinnati in 2005. She thinks about that moment whenever she returns, though it hasn’t helped her very much on the court.

“Of all the tournaments in the United States, Cincinnati is probably the tournament where I’ve done the least well,” she said. “So it’s nice to take that extra step.”
