Donna Vekic v Jasmine Paolini: How to watch, TV channel, start time and head-to-head stats

Seventh seed Jasmine Paolini takes on unseeded Donna Vekic in Thursday's Wimbledon semi-finals after both players reached the last-four stage for the first time in their careers.

Paolini, who lost in the final of the French Open to Iga Swiatek last month, had never previously won a match at Wimbledon before this year's superb run.

She is the the first Italian woman to reach the semi-finals at SW19 in the Open Era after victories over Sara Sorribes Tormo, Greet Minnen, Bianca Andreescu, Madison Keys and Emma Navarro.

Vekic, meanwhile, has battled back from several injury problems over the past few years to reach the semis, beating Wang Xiyu, Erika Andreeva and Dayana Yastremska in the early stages, before seeing off former world number two Paula Badosa in the fourth round.

The Croatian, who is ranked 37th in the world, then ended New Zealand qualifier Lulu Sun's own dream run in the tournament with a 5-7 6-4 6-1 victory in the quarter-finals.
