MONICA SELES and Steffi Graf will contest the women's singles final at Wimbledon tomorrow after contrasting matches in the semi-finals yesterday.

Graf, the No 2 seed, beat Gabriela Sabatini 6-3, 6-3. Seles, the No 1 seed, had a much tougher game against Martina Navratilova, Seles eventually winning 6-2, 6-7, 6-4.

Seles's grunting again became an issue and on two occasions Fran McDowell, the umpire, asked her to keep the noise down. Navratilova said afterwards she found it off-putting but admitted: 'I think she would have beaten me even without the grunt.'

Andre Agassi beat the three-time champion Boris Becker in a resumption of a men's singles quarter-final and in today's semi-final he will meet his fellow American John McEnroe, who beat Guy Forget in another resumed quarter-final.
