What time is Williams-Osaka match? Live stream, TV channel info and more for Australian Open semifinal

  • February 18, 2021

The Australian Open women’s semifinals begin Wednesday night (Thursday in Melbourne) when No. 3 seed Naomi Osaka (Japan) and No. 10 seed Serena Williams (United States) face off in a blockbuster match.

The lifetime series between the two stars is split 2-2. Osaka beat Williams in the final of the 2018 Miami Open winning 6-3, 6-2. Osaka then went on to beat Williams in the final of the 2018 US Open, 6-2, 6-4. Williams responded in the Rogers Cup in 2019 with a 6-3, 6-4 quarterfinal victory. The most recent match between the two was part of a pre-Australian Open exhibition event in January when Williams won 6-2, 2-6.

Williams, 39, is attempting to win her 24th Grand Slam title — which would tie the all-time record — and her first since 2017. Osaka, 23, heads into the semifinals with a 19-match win streak dating back to February 2020.
