Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Career Grand Slam winners Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams will play for the career Golden Slam on Saturday when the two superstars clash in the gold medal match at the London Olympic Games.

The third-seeded former world No. 1 Sharapova blew past No. 14 seed Maria Kirilenko 6-2, 6-3 in an all-Russian semifinal on Court 1 at the All England Club, while a fourth-seeded former No. 1 Williams waltzed past reigning top-ranked star and 2012 Australian Open champ Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-2 on the famed Centre Court.

Williams needed five match points to put away Azarenka, who exited the draw when the American popped a match-ending second-serve ace, her 16th ace of the lopsided affair.
