What an Australian Open! The Federer resurgence continues. He just blitzed his way into the semi-finals and Rafa-Fed grand-slam final is possible again in 2017. Unreal.
But Nadal has to get past Raonic, the number three seed and a bit of a rising star. Tough match-up to call.
Here’s today’s matches…
Men’s Singles (Quarter-Finals)
D. Goffin vs G. Dimitrov (3pm)
M. Raonic vs R. Nadal (7.30pm)
Women’s Singles (Quarter-Finals)
K. Pliskova vs M. Lucic-Baroni (11am)
S. Williams vs J. Konta (1pm)
Men’s Doubles (Quarter-Finals)
P. Herbert/N. Mahut vs M. Polmans/A. Whittington (2pm)
H. Kontinen/J. Peers vs S. Groth/C. Guccione (9.30pm)
Women’s Doubles (Semi-Finals)
B. Mattek-Sands/L. Safarova vs E. Hozumi/M. Kato (3pm)
C. Garcia/K. Mladenovic vs A. Hlavackova/S. Peng (5pm)
So there you have it. Another strong storyline — both Williams sisters still in the tournament. Man, it’s been a good Australian Open this year.
