...
It's all over! Angelique Kerber will play Serena Williams in the finals of the Australian Open!
...
Match point!
...
5-2 to Kerber .. and she'll serve for the match and her FIRST EVER Grand Slam final!
...
Lots of errors from Konta, who's unable to keep up with Kerber. Now 5-1 to Kerber as Konta now serves to stay in the match.
...
Konta is putting up a fight, but the scoreline does not appear to reflect this so far, with Kerber up a break and leading 2-0.
...
Yet again, Kerber opens with a break. It's not looking great for Konta today.
...
Game and set Kerber!
...
Problems, problems! Drops of rain on Rod Laver Arena.
...
And Kerber breaks again to lead 6-5. She'll now serve for the first set.
...
BREAK POINT!
...
Konta's back in this! They're tied at 5-5. Will the first set go to tiebreak?
...
It's looking like a fairly straightforward set, with Kerber sticking to that early break as she leads Konta 3-2. It's now break point for Konta though - can she take revenge?
...
This is Konta's best ever performance at a Grand Slam - prior to the 2016 Australian Open, she had never progressed beyond the fourth round at a Slam.
...
Should she win today, it will be her first ever Grand Slam final, as it will for Konta if she wins.
...
Kerber's highest ever finish at a Grand Slam is at the semi-finals - at the Australian Open this year, and at Wimbledon and the US Open in the past.
...
She has broken Konta in the first game, and now holds to go 2-0.
...
Kerber comes into today's match not having dropped a set as yet.
...
In her previous round, she beat Chinese qualifier Shuai Zhang, who ousted World No. 2 Simona Halep from the first round of the tournament.
...
47th-ranked Konta's biggest upset this year came against former World No. 1 Venus Williams, whom she beat in straight sets.
