The Australian Open is easing into the decisive phase and today’s matches featured a straightforward victory, a come-from-behind-win and another a stunner of a result!
In the Women’s Singles Semi-Finals, it was a battle of two ova’s against two ovic’s. Fifth seed Maria Sharapova eased to a straight sets victory over third seed Jelena Jankovic and in the other semi-final, fourth seed Ana Ivanovic came from being 0-6 down to win against ninth seed Daniela Hantuchova.
But the real surprise of the day came in the Men’s Singles Semi-Finals as World No. 2 and second seed Rafael Nadal was beaten in straight sets by unseeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga! That puts to rest the hopes of another of the Rafa Vs. Fed Final! But of course, Federer has to beat Novak Djokovic first in their Semi-Final.
P.S: I’m tipping Sharapova to come up trumps in the Ladies’ Finals and FedEx to win the Men’s!
