Angelique Kerber won five consecutive games in the second set and saved five set points to beat two-time champion Victoria Azarenka 6-3, 7-5 in the Australian Open quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Kerber broke Azarenka’s serve to end the match, hitting a cross-court backhand at the net to beat the Belarussian for the first time in seven career matches.

The No.7-seeded German will play the winner of the later quarterfinal between Britain’s Johanna Konta and Chinese qualifier Zhang Shuai.

The other semifinalists – six-time champion Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska – were determined on Tuesday.

Both semifinals will be played Thursday, with the final on Saturday.
