VINE: Serena Williams recreates 'The Matrix' to recover balance at Australian Open

Melbourne awaits a classic

There wasn't  too much trouble for either Serena Williams or Maria Sharapova in their Australian Open semi-final's this morning with straight sets victories for both of the top seeds.

Madison Keys was hoping to compete a double over the Williams' sisters after dumping Venus out on Wednesday, but despite her incredible power, Serena emerged with  7-6, 7-5, 6-2 win.

However Serena did have to use her extraordinary ability to stop time to make sure she didn't fall over trying to return a forehand from the 19-year-old.

Second seed Maria Sharapova beat fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova 6-3, 6-2.

If Sharapova is to win the title then she's will have to end and horrendous run of form against Serena in recent meetings. Sharapova hasn't had a win over the younger sister since 2004 and has only beaten her twice in 18 meetings.
