Great semifinal action tomorrow as the Sony Open goes into the homestretch. Just watched Li Na win against Wozniacki to come through to the semis. Li Na, playing a little more aggressive and effectively coming to the net more than usual, set up a rematch of this year's Australian Open final against Cibulkova. The other interesting semi is Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. Serena, being the favorite, goes into the match with 14 straight wins over Maria. Seems like all the top players are playing stronger round-to-round and finding their form at the right time.
A rematch of the 2014 Australian Open is set as Aussie Champion Li Na has defeated Caroline Wozniacki 7-5, 7-5 in Quarterfinal action at the Sony Open Tennis Tournament.

Australian Open 2014 Number 1 Serena Williams was the hardcore favorite but that didn't happened due to back injury where she lost in the fourth round. It gets better I believe if my girl Serena goes out earl all the top ladies should go out. What do you know the next round number 3 Maria Sharapova goes out. In the Quarter Finals defending champ world number 2 Victoria Azerenka goes out. Then in the Semifinals world number 5 goes out. That left world number 4 Li Na and world number 20 in the final which Li Na won finally her first title. THE BEST NEWS IS THAT Serena Williams IS STILL NUMBER 1 IN THE WORLD. I LOVE YOU Serena Williams.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Even in a Grand Slam as unpredictable as this year's Australian Open, the names in the women's semifinals may still prompt head-scratching among casual followers of tennis. With the three biggest stars of the women's game falling one by one - top-seeded Serena Williams, followed by Maria Sharapova and two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka - the door has opened for a first-time winner at Melbourne Park. Only fourth-seeded Li Na has won a Grand Slam before - the 2011 French Open. Fifth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland was the 2012 Wimbledon finalist, but had never been beyond the quarters in Melbourne until she chipped, lobbed and sliced Azarenka off the court in a remarkable display of shot-making on Wednesday. Dominika Cibulkova, a diminutive Slovakian who dispatched Sharapova in the fourth round, has made just one Grand Slam semifinal before, while 19-year-old Eugenie Bouchard is a only playing her fourth major - she didn't even make it out of qualifying at ...

AUSTRALIAN OPEN Roland Garros PA PARIS Grand Slam : MELBOURNE, Australia - Dominika Cibulkova reached the second Grand Slam semifinal of her career at the Australian Open, matching the personal best she set at the French Open five years ago. After storming out to a 3-0 lead, Cibulkova watched as the No.11-seeded Simona Halep closed the gap, winning three of the next four games to make it 4-3. But from there the No.20-seeded Cibulkova didn't even lose another game, reeling off eight straight to close it out in exactly an hour, 63 60. Cibulkova has now scored three upsets in a row - No.16 seed Carla Suárez Navarro, No.3 seed Maria Sharapova and No.11 seed Halep - to go this far at a major for the second time. At Roland Garros in 2009 she made it this far too, falling in straight sets to the eventual runner-up, Dinara Safina. "I'm really glad with the way I played, especially with the way I handled it mentally, after a big win over Maria," Cibulkova said. "I wasn't the favorite in this match against Halep e ...

OPEN DRAW: Williams' departure opens up her half of the draw significantly. Three other top-10 players have already departed - No. 6 Petra Kvitova, No. 7 Sara Errani and No. 9 Angelique Kerber - leaving No. 4 Li Na as the highest-ranked player in the top half. Both Li and Ivanovic are former French Open champions - the Chinese star won in 2011; Ivanovic won at Roland Garros in 2008. Li has reached the final at the Australian Open in two of the last three years, making her the favorite to advance out of this section. No. 2-seeded Victoria Azarenka, No. 3-seeded Maria Sharapova and No. 5-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska are on the other side of the draw. They play their fourth-round matches on Monday.
MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Rafa Nadal beamed with delight after laying down an emphatic marker with a brilliant display of all-court tennis to charge into the last 16 of the Australian Open on Saturday. The Melbourne heatwave may have broken but arch-competitor Nadal was still bathed in sweat after his two-hour 6-1 6-2 6-3 demolition of the talented but error-prone Gael Monfils. Roger Federer earlier boasted of his fitness, Maria Sharapova felt a bit rusty and Andy Murray berated himself but all three eased into the second week. Victoria Azarenka remained on course for her third straight title but may find the next hurdle trickier after setting up a fourth round tie against Sloane Stephens, who she beat amid controversy in last year's semi-finals. While there was relief all round at the cooler temperatures after four days of stifling heat, Milos Raonic and Caroline Wozniacki both felt the stinging burn of an upset. Nadal never looked in any danger of an early departure, barring a brief injury scare when he jar ...

AUSTRIAL OPEN DAY4 REVIEW! Concern over conditions again took centre stage on day four of the Australian Open as surprise results were in short supply. Andy Murray was among the leading seeds to reach the last 32, and until Juan Martin del Potro's defeat late into the night the greatest chance of a shock came from a spectacular thunderstorm which briefly halted play on another sweltering day. Tournament organisers also implemented their heat policy after mounting pressure from players, calling competitors off outside courts as temperatures hit 42 degrees celsius. The show-court roofs were closed to compensate, but out among the hoi polloi the mercury was still threatening the 40-degree mark when play resumed, and players again struggled to cope with the oppressive heat. Jamie Murray was treated for heatstroke after a successful men's doubles outing, and Varvara Lepchenko called the doctor on court on her way to a second-round defeat. Maria Sharapova, meanwhile, claimed she had been close to "passing out" ...
Australian Open .. I hope Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova will be winner this trophy
Tennis | 2014 Australian Open | Day 2 | Night Session It’s been a very hot and extraordinary day at Melbourne Park. Retirements, five-set epics, questions raised over playing in the heat, and the bad news there is, that the next 3 days are expected to be the same! Roger Federer was too good against James Duckworth, winning 4, 4 and 2. From there, it only got worse for the Australians, Lleyton went down swinging in five, after being two sets down, and Bernard Tomic only lasted a set against Rafael Nadal. For those not up-to-speed, Tomic was injured in the opening games, and limped his way through the first set, which Rafa won 6 games to 4, before Bernard retired due to that injury just before we got underway in the 2nd Set.. Maria Sharapova made light work of Bethanie Mattek-Sands from the USA. The world number 3 advanced 6-3, 6-4. Gilles Simon won an epic out on Court 7. He was pushed to five by German Daniel Brands, and it went well into overtime, with Simon eventually winning 16-14 in that fifth and d ...

MELBOURNE, Australia - While the past few years on tour may have been dominated by Serena Williams, the opening stanza on each occasion has undoubtedly belonged to Victoria Azarenka. In both 2012 and 2013, as other leading names floundered, it was Azarenka that reigned supreme claiming back-to-back Australian Open crowns. Her quest for title number three begins next week, and she has been handed no favors by the draw. Azarenka, seeded No.2 this time around, meets Johanna Larsson in the first round, and should she safely clear this and her other opening hurdles, could be faced with her semifinal victim from 12 months ago, Sloane Stephens, in the last 16. Long-term rivals Agnieszka Radwanska and Maria Sharapova potentially lurk in the quarter and semifinals, respectively, although neither will be looking too far ahead either. Sharapova is involved in one of the first round's more colorful encounters, taking on Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who arrives in good form, having recently upset Radwanska in Sydney. On the ...

Still, given the draw, expect to see Vika return to the Final for a third year running.

She was to face Maria Sharapova in the next round. Barty has also pulled out of the Hobart event next week to allow recovery time ahead of Monday week's Australian Open.
BRISBANE, Australia (AP) -- Every point mattered for Maria Sharapova in her competitive comeback from injury, even in a first-round match in the season-opening tournament. Sharapova beat 74th-ranked Caroline Garcia of France 6-3, 6-0 Monday, ripping forehand winners and nullifying her rival's biggest weapon with consistently aggressive service returns. She chased down balls to turn the tempo when she was behind in two games in the second set, and celebrated break points with triple fist pumps even when the result was well beyond doubt. The four-time major winner played only one match following an early exit at Wimbledon last season due to a right shoulder injury. She showed no signs of soreness in advancing to the second round at the Brisbane International, her only warm-up event for the Australian Open. ''It's been four months ... (so) it was a big step for me. It was a big step to come and a big step to play out there tonight,'' Sharapova said, adding that she was pain-free and feeling good. ''These mat ...
Daily Bagel: What will Maria Sharapova wear at the Australian Open?
MARIA FINISHES THE YEAR RANKED 4 Maria will end 2013 at No.4 in the WTA rankings. This is the seventh time that Maria has ended the year ranked in the top 5 despite missing most of the second half of the year due to a shoulder injury. Highlights of 2013 include winning Indian Wells and Stuttgart and reaching the final at the French Open and the semis of the Australian Open. Here is the top 10: 1. Serena Williams (USA) 13260 2. Victoria Azarenka (BLR) 8046 3. Li Na (CHN) 6045 4. Maria Sharapova (RUS) 5891 5. Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) 5875 6. Petra Kvitova (CZE) 4775 7. Sara Errani (ITA) 4435 8. Jelena Jankovic (SRB) 4170 9.

Serena Williams favourite to defend WTA Championships title Serena Williams starts a strong favourite to win a second successive WTA Championships as the end-of-season finale begins in Istanbul on Tuesday. The world number one has only lost four matches and won 10 titles this season, more than any other year of her career. She will face Petra Kvitova, Agnieszka Radwanska and Angelique Kerber in the group stages in Turkey. Red group Serena Williams (world no 1) Agnieszka Radwanska (no 4) Petra Kvitova (no 6) Angelique Kerber (no 9) "It's a tough group," Williams said. "That's the thing about this event, you have to be ready from the first match." Eight of the top nine in the world rankings - world number three Maria Sharapova is injured - are split into two groups of four, with the top two in each qualifying for the semi-finals. Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, who has beaten Williams twice this year, heads the other group, which includes China's Li Na, Sara Errani of Italy and Serb Jelena Janko ...
Women's Semi Finals Today Predictions: Pre Tournament favorite Serena Williams who has won 29 matches in a row (count em!) will overpower Italian Sara Errani in 2 sets. Errani upset hard hitting Sam Stosur in last year's semis, but Serena has the upper hand here with a 5-0 record against Errani. In a more dramatic encounter sparks will be flying and the grunt-o-metre will be working overtime when French Open holder Maria Sharapova comes face-to-face with Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka. There is no love lost between these two women. I predict Victoria Azarenka will tip Maria Sharapova in a tight 3 set match. Azarenka has been the more consistent player the past 3 weeks and she is looking to capture her second consecutive Grand Slam title.

Did you know? Prior to her loss at the Australian Open, Serena hadn't lost a singles match since August 17th.
Maria Sharapova has relinquished her world No. 2 spot to Serena Williams after the Russian's surprise Australian Open semifinal defeat to Li Na.
Maria Sharapova is into the semi-finals of the Australian Open, having taken just 13 minutes more to get there than Novak Djokovic did to get past Stanislas Wawrinka into the fourth round.
Equal pay for equal work. That should be the norm for women and men with same time on the job and same experience. But in women’s tennis it is not equal work and equal pay, and it so showed up again this Australian Open. At the quarter- and semi-final stage, several of the women’s matches ran only 2 easy sets, with seed Maria Sharapova being beaten 6-2, 6-2. Meanwhile, most of the men’s matches went five sets, lasting 3-1/2 to 5 hours. Not only that, by only playing the best of three sets, allows the women singles’ players to also compete in the doubles’ tournaments, something the top men cannot do. So, the last time the Williams sisters won the doubles, Serena also won the singles, and took away about twice as much money as the men’s singles winner. They don't even have to win to get more money. The women do not bring in close to the same live or TV audience as the men, due to three main factors: often boring baseline hitting, with little net play; inconsistencies, and not having a champ ...

Here's my new column on Maria Sharapova and losing and Beckham and beauty and sex, basically.
TENNIS- Li Na blazes past Sharapova in the Australian Open: Li Na crushed Maria Sharapova with a magnificent display to power into her second Australian Open final. Sharapova had broken a tournament record in conceding just nine games in reaching the last four but she was overwhelmed by the Chinese whose heavy-hitting, high-risk game reaped maximum reward. In the face of blazing winners from all angles, second seed Sharapova had no answer as Li romped to a 6-2 6-2 win. "I always play well here," Li said after a 93-minute masterclass. Li, who reached the final here in 2011 and a few months later become the first Asian player to win a Grand Slam crown at Roland Garros.

- Maria Sharapova to face Makarova in Australian Open quarterfinals after defeating Kirsten Flipkens on Sunday
2nd seed Maria Sharapova annihilated Kirsten Flipkens 6-1 6-0 & will face Ekaterina Makarova in the QFs of the Australian Open
Maria Sharapova set the record for the fewest games lost en route to the Australian Open quarterfinals today, having conceded just five games in the first four rounds. The previous record at the Australian Open is held by Steffi Graf (eight games) and the overall record at a Grand Slam event is held by Mary Pierce who lost four games on her way to the French Open 1994 quarterfinals.
Maria Sharapova has played 4 matches in this year's Australian Open, dropping only 5 games and has double bagel'd her opponent in 2 matches!
What am I doing here? I was supposed to be gone two weeks ago.really...i stayed for more of this...another beard! you've got another beard Maria! You MUST come out of the closet. You MUST! If you don't the world will presume you're straight. "A new romance certainly does not appear to be getting in the way of Maria Sharapova, who is into the last eight of the Australian Open for the loss of just five games. After breaking off her engagement to basketball player Sasha Vujacic last year, the French Open champion has taken up with Bulgarian tennis star Grigor Dimitrov, four years her junior at 21."
Long overdue shout out to my roommates Jeremy and Huan for letting me hog the TV during the Australian Open. You da best!
Maria Sharapova took out one Williams sister in the third round of the Australian Open (6-1, 6-3), but she will still fall victim to a Williams when the tournament is over...
The top seeds continue to dominate on the women's bracket at the 2013 Australian Open. On Sunday, No. 2 Maria Sharapova and No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska both won in straight sets to advance to the quarterfinals.
Sharapova, Makarova set up all-Russian quarterfinal MELBOURNE, January 20, 2013 Maria Sharapova has lost only five games in four matches on the way to the Australian Open quarterfinals, a record at the season’s first major that seems to be immaterial to the 25-year-old Russian. Sharapova beat Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium 6-1, 6-0 on Sunday to continue a dominant and unparalleled run. “Well I’m certainly happy to be playing this well but ... it only gets tougher from here,” said Sharapova. Steffi Graf conceded only eight games in her opening four matches here in 1989, when she won the second of her three straight Australian Open titles. Monica Seles matched that mark. Sharapova has been even more dominant. She started with a pair of 6-0, 6-0 wins the first time that has happened at a major since 1985 and then beat Venus Williams 6-1, 6-3 in the third round. “The year that I won here I don’t think there were many games that I lost, but I don’t think it was five or six,” she said, reflecting . ...

Elena Visnina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Maria Kirilenko, Ekaterina Makarova, and Maria Sharapova...5 Russian women still alive in the Australian Open sweet sixteen...but Serena is serving as fast as she ever has!!! wow!!! China counting on Na Li...
Seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams became just another Maria Sharapova victim as the Russian took her astonishing Australian Open start up a notch in the third round on Friday night. Sharapova, 25, whose preparation for the tournament was limited by a collarbone injury, had gone through the first two rounds without losing a game, blitzing fellow Russian Olga Puchkova and Japan’s Misaki Doi. Unlike those victims, Williams at least made it onto the scoreboard as Sharapova won 6-1 6-3. Sharapova’s concession of just four games over the first three rounds equals German great Steffi Graf’s 1989 mark as the fewest conceded by any woman to that stage of the Open since the move to 128-player draws in 1988. Williams had been expected to give the No.2 seed her first real fight of the tournament, despite the 32-year-old no longer playing at the standard that netted her two US Open and five Wimbledon titles between 2000-08 and helped the American to the world No.1 ranking in 2002. But Sharapova, who ...
2nd seed Maria Sharapova sends Venus Williams crashing out of the Australian Open in a straight sets defeat -
The big four Grand Slams will obviously be the highlight of the calendar year in Tennis . Last season Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray all claimed one each. Will it be a return to a more dominant year for the Serb, Novak Djokovic though, with Nadal still struggling with fitness problems and Federer heading to the twilight years of his career? In the women’s category, can world number one Victoria Azarenka hold off the challenges of Serena Williams? Will Maria Sharapova make a bigger impact? The action starts mid January with the Australian Open, followed by the French Open in May, Wimbledon in July and the US Open to round off the Slam series in August. So much to look out for in the world of tennis in 2013.

World Sports News Radwanska wants more at Aussie Open Polish star Agnieszka Radwanska is unbeaten after two tournament wins this year, which has only prompted her to work harder to improve. The world No.4 may have played second fiddle to rampant Maria Sharapova on Wednesday, but Radwanska also cruised into the third round of the Australian Open and already has the finals in her sights. Radwanska reached her first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon last year when she went down to Serena Williams, and is chasing more time in the major spotlight. However the 23-year-old may not get the opportunity to play Williams at Melbourne Park after doubt increased over the American's fitness. Williams rolled an ankle during her first round win over Romanian Edina Gallovits-Hall and on Wednesday switched her practice session to train indoors in private. The 15-times major winner said on Tuesday her ankle was sore and swollen but she would know more over the following 24 hours. Late on Wednesday afternoon the reigning Wimbled ...
World Sports News Tomic eyes top 10 after ideal Open start Bernard Tomic's explosive Australian Open start has convinced him more than ever that a top 10 ranking this year is achievable. Tomic continued his superb Australian summer with the perfect start to his Open campaign, blowing Argentine Leonardo Mayer off court on Tuesday night in little more than an hour and a half. The 20-year-old's 6-3 6-2 6-3 victory leaves him one of only three surviving locals in the tournament's second round, and comes just days after he won his maiden tour title in Sydney to lift his world ranking to 43. Tomic admits he is enjoying the fruits of his improved commitment to the game - which coincides with Davis Cup captain Pat Rafter banning him from the upcoming tie next month because of previous problems with his professionalism. And if he can continue that commitment and his current level of tennis, the Gold Coast player believes he can crack the world's top 10 by year's end. "I think it's very achievable the way I'm going ...

Still no major upsets at the Australian Open...still early...interesting 3rd match-up (should they both win their 2nd rd matches): Venus Williams v Maria Sharapova
Stayed up too late, but got to see the amazingness that is Maria Sharapova post her second double bagel (That's 6-0, 6-0) in a row in the Australian Open. Don't know if that's ever been done in a women's major. She's played two matches and has barely spen an hour and a half on the court. I really hope this is her year. Next up, though, Venus Williams.
Last Monday, the Rod Laver Arena opened the 1st ATP/WTA Grand Slam for 2013, the Australian Open.

Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova looking sharp in their opening round matches at the Australian Open. I interviewed Maria after her impressive win - she seemed very relaxed and happy!!!
Tennis - Australian Open Women First round Sharapova leads top trio into second round Maria Sharapova swept aside any fears about her fitness with a ruthless 6-0 6-0 victory over Olga Puchkova as a trio of top women progressed with ease on the first morning of the Australian Open. Sharapova, the 2008 champion and runner up to Victoria Azarenka last year, was quickly joined in the second round by Venus Williams and Li Na after both the former losing finalists also enjoyed emphatic wins. Despite the record temperatures which have gripped Australia for the last couple of weeks, the year's first Grand Slam opened in mild conditions under overcast skies at Melbourne Park. There was nothing mild about Sharapova's demolition of Puchkova on Rod Laver Arena, however, and after saving a couple of break points in the opening game, she powered her way to victory over her compatriot in just 55 minutes. Smashing winners at will, particularly off her forehand, the Russian showed no signs of the collar bone injury that s ...
Serena Takes Her Shot THURSDAY, JANUARY 03, 2013 /BY PETER BODO Print The other day in Brisbane, Serena Williams declared that one of her remaining goals is to perform the greatest feat in tennis: Win a calendar-year Grand Slam. Asked if she felt she had a shot at that prize this year, Serena replied: “I think for me, absolutely.” Having a more highly developed sense of public relations at this point in her career, or a sharper desire for hedging what amounts to a very big bet, Serena added: “I think maybe whoever wins the Australian Open will have that same thought. I think there is no way that Victoria (Azarenka) or Maria (Sharapova) or maybe some other players don't feel the same way. So I think I definitely feel that way.” We’re likely to see whose feeling is most powerful at this early stage of the year tomorrow, when Serena squares off against the woman who looms as her main rival, world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka. Serena’s record against Azarenka is a nearly spotless 11-1, the lone blemish ...
