Tennis | WTA Serena, Ivanovic battle into Cincinnati final 17 August 2014, 07:28 Serena Williams rallied past Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday to reach the Western and Southern Open final in Cincinnati where she will face Ana Ivanovic, an upset winner over French Open champion Maria Sharapova. Top-seeded Williams had to overcome a sluggish start to beat Wozniacki 2-6 6-2 6-4 while Serbian ninth seed Ivanovic eventually prevailed in a rollercoaster 6-2 5-7 7-5 win over the Russian fifth seed that lasted nearly three hours. The Cincinnati tournament is the last of the key tune-ups ahead of the August 25-September 8 US Open, the year's final Grand Slam, where Williams will defend her crown. The day's first semifinal was a rematch of the thrilling quarterfinal in Montreal earlier this month between Williams and Wozniacki that the American won in three sets. Williams looked a pale shadow of herself in the 29-minute first set as she held her serve only once and recorded twice as many unforced errors as ...

Defending women's champion Serena Williams secured her place in Sunday's final against Italian Sara Errani after beating Serbian 11th seed Ana Ivanovic 6-1, 3-6, 6-1. Earlier, Errani booked her place in the women's final to maintain her hopes of becoming the first Italian woman to win the tournament in 29 years. Errani, seeded 10, upset China's number two seed Li Na 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 on Friday and ousted Serbian sixth seed Jelena Jankovic 6-3, 7-5 in their semi. "It was quite difficult out there, Sara played a great match and credit to her," said Jankovic. "Overall it was a difficult day, I gave my best but there are a lot of things I could have done better." Errani, 27, was ousted from the semi-finals last year by Victoria Azarenka, who went on to lose last year's final to Williams. But she admitted the home support was so intense she had to concentrate hard. "I've never felt something like the before. The crowd were giving me so much support that it almost put me off," said Errani. Raffaella Reggi was the l ...

Tennis - Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer is reportedly the highest paid athlete in the game, with estimated earnings of 71.5 million dollars in 2013. According to News. com. au, the list of the world's richest players in descending order includes Federer, Maria Sharapova, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Li Na, Victoria Azarenka, Andy Murray, Caroline Wozniacki and Kei Nishikori.

Li Na Wins Australian Open In 3rd Trip To Final Seven months after giving retirement serious thought, Li Na made it third time lucky in an Australian Open final with a 7-6 (3), 6-0 win over Dominika Cibulkova to become the oldest women's champion here in the Open era. Li, who turns 32 next month, lost finals to Kim Clijsters in 2011 and to Victoria Azarenka last year. In between, she won the 2011 French Open in one of the many firsts she's established for Chinese tennis. Widely popular at Melbourne Park for her funny post-match interviews and wise cracks about her husband and his snoring, Li didn't disappoint the Rod Laver Crowd in her first victory speech. She first thanked her agent, Max, ''for making me rich,'' her coach Carlos Rodriguez and then her husband, former coach and constant traveling companion, Shan Jiang. She told him he was ''even famous in China.'' ''So thanks for him give up everything just traveling with me to be my hitting partner, fix the drinks, fix the racket. So thanks a lot, you a ...
Li, Cibulkov clash in women’s final China’s Li Na will seek her second major title on Saturday when she faces a first-time Grand Slam finalist, 20th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova, in the Australia Open final. According to SI.com, the path looks paved for the No.4 seed, 31, to finally win the title in Melbourne, after losing the final in 2011 and 2013. She nearly lost in the third round when No. 26 Lucie Safarova sent potential winner a match point “five centimeters” long. But a slew of upsets made her draw much easier; not only did Li’s projected semifinal opponent, No. 1 seed Serena Williams, lose in the fourth round, but other potentially tricky opponents also went down, including No. 6 Petra Kvitova, No. 9 Angelique Kerber, No. 14 Ana Ivanovic and No. 15 Sabine Lisicki. In fact, the 24th-ranked Cibulkova will be Li’s first top-25 opponent this tournament. That’s a far cry from having to play Kim Clijsters in the 2011 final or having to beat Maria Sharapova and then face Victoria Azarenka i .. ...
Tennis - Indian tennis ace Mahesh Bhupathi has announced that his international tennis league will kick off in November this year, will feature 5 cities and star a host of big names. Bhupathi also said that there will be a player auction in March. The cities that will own the franchises are Mumbai, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore — and a yet to be determined city in the Mid East. Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Li Na, Caroline Wozniacki and Sam Stosur are some of the names who have expressed interest in the league. Speaking to The Economic Times, Bhupathi commented, "It's five sets, men's singles, men's doubles, women's singles, mixed doubles, legends singles. No particular order. The home team gets to pick the order on the night of the match. One set, no-ad scoring, tiebreaker at 5-All. The winning team is the one to win the most number of games at the end of the day, not the number of sets." "Owners have the freedom to c ...

Plenty to watch in women's semis: Most of the expected names -- Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Maria Shar...
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 ...

Sharapova out, Nadal, Murray win Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka saw another of her main adversaries crash out of the Australian Open on Monday, while top-ranked Rafael Nadal and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray faced tougher-than-expected matches to advance to the quarterfinals at Melbourne Park. Maria Sharapova joined Serena Williams as fourth-round casualties, leaving Azarenka a potentially easier run to the women’s final, AFP reports. Sharapova was beaten by No. 20 Dominika Cibulkova in the match on Rod Laver Arena immediately before Azarenka defeated Sloane Stephens, the last remaining American in the singles draw. Nadal won three tough sets against Kei Nishikori, while Murray wasted four match points in the third set – including two in the tiebreaker – before dominating the fourth set against lucky loser Stephane Robert of France. Four-time Australian Open champion Roger Federer was never threatened in beating 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 in a late match. He will ...

The American has 13,260 points with nearest challenger Victoria Azarenka in second place with 8,151. Williams faces Ash Barty in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday.

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 ...
In the women's draw, World No 1 Serena Williams will play Australian wildcard Ashleigh Barty in the first round as she bids for her 18th Grand Slam title and sixth at Melbourne Park. The American's draw lines her up for a potentially tough fourth-round clash with Sam Stosur, who beat Williams in the final of the US Open in 2011. Double defending champion Victoria Azarenka, seeded second, will take on Swede Johanna Larsson according to the draw released on Friday. Third seed Maria Sharapova will play American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, while fourth seed Li Na, runner-up at MelbournePark last year, will play a qualifier.
Who is your tip for the 2014 Australian Open?? Will the reigning champions (and both World Novak Djokovic & Victoria Azarenka make it back-to-back, or will Rafa Nadal or Serena Williams come out firing??
Victoria Azarenka has a tougher quarter than Maria Sharapova does, as it includes 2012 Wimbledon Finalist Agnieszka Radwanska, Sloane Stephens (who eliminated Serena Williams from the Australian Open last year), newly engaged former World # 1 Caroline Wozniacki with a newly signed Babolat contract and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, one of the young stars currently being coached by former 3-time Australian Open Champion Martina Hingis. Still, given the draw, expect to see Vika return to the Final for a third year running.
The most recent of Serena Williams’s five titles in the Australian Open came in 2010, but with a victory over Victoria Azarenka, she has won 22 straight matches.

Marion Bartoli's near-perfect day ... LONDON -- The big, flat-out hitters -- Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova -- were already chilling at home when the women's semifinals unfurled Thursday. That they also were the top three seeds here at the All England Club says a lot about today's game. Big is almost always better, but this retro final four has something different: variety. It happened on the men's side, when Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal succumbed to crazed, net-crashing volleyers named Steve Darcis and Sergiy Stakhovsky. As Martina Navratilova wrote in her Thursday column in the Times of London, all four women's semifinalists could have played in the wooden racket era. Their average height -- about 5-foot-7 -- isn't all that far beyond the height of an average woman. They resist the urge to hit everything hard and harder; rather, they have a pleasing array of spins and speeds for any occasion. Even Sabine Lisicki, the most powerful of the group, unleashed a hail of drop shots in ...
Tennis - Wimbledon Order of play: Tuesday July 2 The order of play for day eight at Wimbledon, featuring all four ladies' quarter-finals. Eight women from eight different countries will walk through the gates of the All England Club on Tuesday harbouring genuine title hopes following a Wimbledon wipeout of the headline attractions. Czech eighth seed Petra Kvitova, Wimbledon champion in 2011, and China's Li Na, French Open winner in the same year, are the only two who know how it feels to win a Grand Slam. After defeat for Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka's injury-enforced withdrawal, Serena Williams was expected to stroll to a sixth Wimbledon title but her fourth-round defeat by German Sabine Lisicki on Monday left the draw wide open. Kvitova takes on 20th seed Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium, a quarter-final debutant at this level, while Li faces fourth- seeded Pole Agnieszka Radwanska who was runner-up here last year. "I think it doesn't mean anything," Radwanska said, referring to her role as the high ...
Serena Williams stunned at Wimbledon by German Sabine Lisicki Kvitova, Li Na also advance The Associated Press Posted: Jul 1, 2013 10:27 AM ET Last Updated: Jul 1, 2013 11:55 AM ET Sabine Lisicki overcome mid-match struggles to earn the biggest win of her career. Serena Williams saw her match streak end at 34 on Monday, and more importantly, her bid to repeat as Wimbledon champion. Germany's Sabine Lisicki topped Williams by scores of 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 on Centre Court, continuing a trend of upsets during the tournament's fortnight. Past Wimbledon champions Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova exited the tournament last week, while top contenders Victoria Azarenka and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were among a spate of injury casualties. "I probably couldn't be more disappointed," Williams said. "I think I may have backed off of a success. I was playing something successful. I didn't continue that path.

For those of you who may not recognize these great champions without racquets in their hands, they are: Bottom row, l to r Tracy Austin, Martina Hingis, Monica Seles, Maria Sharapova, Billie Jean King, the Mother of Them all, Serena Williams, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Justine Henin Top row Mary Carillo (co MC), Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Ana Ivanovic, Lindsay Davenport, Dinara Safina, Jelena Jankovic, Jennifer Capriati, Caroline Wozniacki, and Amelie Mauresmo. At least three former apparently had other commitments -- Steffi Graf, Venus Williams, and Victoria Azarenka, the latter two of whom are dealing with health issues. Also on hand were a number of the women who were on hand at the founding of the WTA. There are very few people, let alone women, wh .. ...

Women top seeds get seemingly easy first rounds at Wimbledon LONDON: Who are the women handed the task of taking down Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka in
Go on Serena Williams beat that screeching bird!
Maria Sharapova says she will have to "try something different" when she faces world number one Serena Williams in Saturday's French Open final. Williams is on a 30-match winning streak and thrashed Sara Errani in 46 minutes in the semi-finals. Defending champion Sharapova, who battled past Victoria Azarenka in three sets, last beat Williams in 2004 and has lost their past 12 matches. Sharapova, 26, has won just one set in their past 11 matches and lost in straight sets on the Madrid clay only last month.
FINAL WOMEN Tennis - French Open Serena favourite to beat defending champion Sharapova in final Serena Williams gives pet names to her various character traits whereas Maria Sharapova, who will try to prevent the American claiming a 16th Grand Slam title in Saturday's French Open final, usually sticks rigidly to the ice maiden routine. Defending champion Sharapova has been more beauty or beast in the last couple of rounds, however, mixing brilliance with woeful interludes, with aces and winners often being matched by doubles faults and wild errors. The "good" Maria, the one that served 12 aces against Victoria Azarenka in Thursday' semi-finals, will have to show up against Williams if she is to stand any chance of preventing the world number one lifting the Suzanne Lenglen Cup 11 years after her first triumph. Second seed Sharapova needs to produce an almost flawless display if she is to become the first woman to retain her Paris title since Justine Henin in 2007. While American Serena dropped only a set ...
Roland Garros: king Rafael Nadal (clay master) has defeated world no one Novak Djokovic to book a place in Sunday final while Maria Sharapova(go go Masha) has defeated Victoria Azarenka to reach the French Open final on Saturday facing the unbeatable Serena Williams who humiliated Italian Sara Errani at the semis!!

Until June 9, your stay in Paris will give you a stiff neck! Game, set and match will be your only watchwords while applauding the gods of the racket on the courts of Roland Garros! To be comfortable admired from your hotel room, or directly on site at the Porte d’Auteuil. Who will bet on a victory by Nadal during the finals or on an nth return of Federer? One thing is for sure: there will be blathering and betting at the Porte d’Auteuil in Paris… The world’s biggest tennis stars will be on the clay courts like every year. You can admire them on screen from your hotel, or directly on site… The French Open. And on the benches, with a crowned head on your right and a rock star on your left, it is most likely you’ll also be able to enjoy the rallies of Serena Williams or Victoria Azarenka…
Serena Williams reached the French Open final for the first time since 2002 when she beat Sara Errani 6-0, 6-1 Thursday.
Do I have racial preference? I'm not a tennis person but I think than Sharapova does pack a punch but as soon as I heard she is playing Serena Williams, I was rooting for team Serena almost without thinking. Nah but I'm not racist, I do support the almost white Proteaz wen they play 'black' West Indiz, so Sharapova might as well get her fyn *** some whooping. Serena is holding court! It's Bafana Friday remember dat!
Its world's No1 Serena Williams vs No2 Maria Sharapova in the finals of RG.where is your moola at?? TRUTH and NON-VIOLENCE
Serena Williams has just fire Sara Errani's *** lol she gave her great balls of fire. lol Congratulations to Serena and wish her good luck indeed. And hold on you great Sara, years might yet come to pass and you might be able to make it perhaps with more practice, focus on Victoria Azarenka now, she isn't easy though, too furious lol What the *** are you doing among these tennis bullets-shooters. lol lol lol lol Would better put your shield on next time lol lol lol lol just saying though.
Alright a quick update. French Open Womens Final between Maria Sharapova (beat Victoria Azarenka) and Serena Williams (beat Sara Errani). India win the Champions Trophy match against South Africa after scoring 331-7 in England. Under-21 UEFA match in Israel between Spain and Russia headed for a draw.
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.
So the semi-finals are set. For the ladies seed Serena Williams will play last year's finalist Sara Errani. Maria Sharapova will play Victoria Azarenka, a rematch of last year's Australian Open Final and US Open semi-final, Azarenka won both of them. On the men's side, its Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and David Ferrer. The other semi-final is Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Sir Zik says: Today at French Open Maria Sharapova is playing against my darling Victoria Azarenka. I think Sharapova will beat vika and my sister Serena Williams will beat Sara Errani easily. I am saying to all of that Serena and warrior Rafael Nadal will win the French Open consecutively.
Maan. The semifinal of the French Open is gonna be crazy. Errani vs Serena Williams. And Victoria Azarenka vs Maria Sharapova.
I am checking your stats: Victoria Azarenka has a losing record against Serena Williams . They have met 14 times.

TENNIS Swiss icon Roger Federer was an easy second-round winner Wednesday at the 2013 French Open. The second-seeded former world No. 1 superstar dismantled helpless Indian Somdev Devvarman 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 in a brisk 82-minute affair on Court Lenglen. Devvarman was a two-time NCAA champion while attending the University of Virginia. Federer boasts a men's-record 254 Grand Slam singles match victories and is now third on the men's Open-Era list with 56 wins at the French. Federer's third-round opponent will be quality Frenchman Julien Benneteau, who upset the Swiss legend in Rotterdam earlier this season. Meanwhile, fourth-seeded David Ferrer and sixth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga also secured spots in the third round. On the women's side, world No. 1 superstar and former champion Serena Williams, Australian Open titlist Victoria Azarenka and last year's Wimbledon runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska were a trio of winners Wednesday at Roland Garros. The sizzling-hot 2002 French Open winner Williams won her 26th straigh ...
I was a little surprised to see a such a one-sided final today with Nadal beating Federer 6-1, 6-3. Nadal is clearly back on top of his game winning his 7th Italian Open and improving his career record to 20-10 against Federer. Similar picture on the women's side with Serena Williams's straight set win over Victoria Azarenka to extend her run to 24 consecutive wins. Serena looks as good, if not better, than I've ever seen her on the red clay. Both look prepared and ready to make it 3 in a row in Paris.

By Diane Pucin March 5, 2013, 5:27 p.m. Maria Sharapova considers the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells a hometown tournament. The Russian tennis pro has a home in Manhattan Beach, her parents have a home in Topanga Canyon and she even has a favorite Italian restaurant in Southern California, La Sosta Enoteca in Hermosa Beach. And so it makes Sharapova happy that she will be seeded second to Victoria Azarenka when the women's tournament begins Wednesday. Men's main draw play begins Friday. "I like this tournament because the people come to watch the tennis," Sharapova said. "As tennis players, when we see fans driving up, see a line of spectators, it's incredible." Sharapova, who turns 26 next month, is ranked No. 3 in the world. She is playing this event for the 11th time; she won in 2006 and lost in the final last year to Azarenka, currently No. 2. Top-ranked Serena Williams is not entered and hasn't played at Indian Wells since 2001. It was a relaxed and focused Sharapova who spoke about her continuing ...

The Australian Open is now over! Today Novak Djokovic won the men's singles title for the third consecutive time after defeating Andy Murray in four sets. On the women's side, Victoria Azarenka managed to battle past Li Na in three sets to take the title for the second year running. As of Monday 28th January, Maria Sharapova will be ranked third in the singles rankings with Serena Williams moving up to No.2 and Azarenka retaining her No.1 spot.
Victoria Azarenka is the 8th player to retain the Australian Open women's singles crown in Open era: Margaret Court, Evonne Goolagong, Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams preceded her. In 24 of the last 26 Grand Slam women's singles final, the player that won the first set also won the match. In both exceptions, Li Na was at the losing end (2011 and 2013 Australian Open).

Just 24 hours after her upset win over Serena Williams, Sloane Stephens returns to face No. 1…
Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher, once said: "There's nothing as permanent as change." Sloane Stephen, a promising American female tennis player has made history today. She has put an end to Serena Williams' twenty-match winning streak, in a grueling three-set battle. When I was in SS2, my English teacher used to say: "Success comes by dint of hard-work and tenacity on purpose". Sloane Stephen has proven the validity of that statement. I had told the tennis community in an online tennis forum that Serena could face an upset in the hands of one of three ladies-Victoria Azarenka, Angelique Kerber or Sloane Stephen. I included the name Sloane Stephen because I believe she could mount a formidable opposition if she faces Serena at any stage of the Aussie Open. My belief was born after I saw her performance at the quarter final match against Serena in Brisbane few weeks ago. Though Serena won that match, I was quite impressed by Sloane's talent. Sloane has made it to her first ever Grand Slam semi final comin ...

Who else stayed up past their bedtime last night to watch David Ferrer beat Almagro in their quarterfinal match? He'll face Novak Djokovic in the semis. The Williams sisters lost in doubles but the Bryan Brothers are still in. Li Na defeated Agnieszka Radwanska, and Maria Sharapova dominated. Victoria Azarenka is playing Svetlana Kuznetsova live now, and it's a battle of the Americans later as Serena Williams faces the teen Sloane Stephens.

It's very likely that (1) Victoria Azarenka & (3) Serena Williams will play the AO2013 Women's Tennis SF from the top half of the draw while (2) Maria Sharapova & (4) Agnieska Radwanska will face on the bottom half. I think there will be a repeat of the 2012 London Olympics Women's Tennis Gold Medal between Serena & MariaS.
TENNIS Australian Open LIVE Victoria Azarenka made light work of Elena Vesnina as she strolled into the quarter finals in Melbourne. Also through is Svetlana Kuznetsova, and Sloane Stephens of the US. On the male side Jo Wilfried Tsonga booked his place in the quarters alongside fellow frenchman Jeremy Chardy. Andy Murray is currently on court against Gilles Simon while Roger Federer play Milos Raonic later on, and Serena Williams play Maria Kirilenko.
The final half of the Australian Open QFs will be decided today with Victoria Azarenka, Serena Williams vs Maria Kirilenko (official) & Caroline Wozniacki vs Svetlana Kuznetsova. Preview:
Infections from Pedicures Can Be Very Costly: Women’s tennis player Victoria Azarenka missed out on between $22,000 and $138,000 last week when she couldn’t take the court for her semi-final match against Serena Williams in the Brisbane International tennis tournament. The reason for the withdrawal: Azarenka’s right big toe had become infected after what she termed a “bad pedicure experience.” Toenail-borne infections are nothing to laugh at. “I’ve had to put patients on medication, give them tetanus shots — and sometimes even hospitalize them, so they could receive intravenous drips — after contracting infections from professional pedicures,” says Boca Raton podiatrist Dr. Bret Ribotsky.

Australian Open Reset (Women's Singles): 16 players left, Round 4 action to start in a few hours---(5) Angelique Kerber vs. (19) Ekaterina Makarova; Kirsten Flipkens vs. (2) Maria Sharapova; (13) Ana Ivanovic vs. (4) Agnieszka Radwanska; (6) Na Li vs. (18) Julia Goerges; Elena Vesnina vs. (1) Victoria Azarenka; (10) Caroline Wozniacki vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova; (3) Serena Williams vs. (14) Maria Kirilenko; Bojana Jovanovski vs. (29) Sloane Stephens. Which of these matchups stands out to you? To me it's the Julia Goerges/Na Li match only because Goerges has never reached the QFs of a Grand Slam before, and I'm curious to see if she can break through. Also, Sloane Stephens has a great chance at reaching a Grand Slam QF as well as many others. Actually provided they aren't playing one of the top 3 seeds, I think anybody has a shot at reaching the QFs. Thoughts?

Tennis Latest: Azarenka survives Hampton scare - Defending champion Victoria Azarenka stumbles against Jamie Hampton but reaches the last 16 with Serena Williams.
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.

With temperatures well over the 100-degree mark, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka were in no mood to stick around on the searing courts at the Australian Open. A dancing Azarenka and an ankle-weary Williams played back-to-back matches Thursday on Rod Laver Arena, both easy straight-set victories. U.S. Open champion Murray also won routinely, beating Joao Sousa of Portugal 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 on Hisense Arena, the second show court at Melbourne Park. "You need to be the one that's trying to dictate the points in these conditions," said Murray, who practices in Florida. "Miami is the perfect preparation.
