On the other semi-final, defending champion Victoria Azarenka overcame injury problems to end Sloane Stephens' Australian Open run and set up a final with China's Li Na on Saturday- January 26, 2013.
The 23-year-old Belarusian's on-court comments after the match led to speculation about the timing of her medical timeout.
"I couldn't breathe. I had chest pains," she said. "It was like I was getting a heart attack. After that it wasn't my best, but it's important to overcome this little bit of a struggle and win the match."
