    Serena on fire as Wawrinka crushes Japan's hopes at Australian Open

    A fired-up Serena Williams shot down last year's finalist Dominika Cibulkova Wednesday to set up an Australian Open semi-final with teen Madison Keys, as defending men's champion Stan Wawrinka crushed Japanese hopes. Unlike her earlier sluggish matches, Serena was in the zone from the off against the dangerous Slovak, a steely look in her eyes as she walked onto Rod Laver Arena soon after fellow American Keys knocked out her sister Venus. The unseeded Keys, 19, is the tournament surprise package, fighting hard to beat a resurgent Venus 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 and end any chance of the sisters meeting in a Grand Slam semi for the first time since Wimbledon 2000.

  • Sharapova blows away Bouchard to march into semis

    By Greg Stutchbury MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Maria Sharapova showcased all of her canny experience and brutal efficiency as she gave Eugenie Bouchard a 78-minute tennis lesson to advance to the Australian Open semi-finals on Tuesday. The 20-year-old Bouchard reached the last four in Australia and France as well as the Wimbledon final in 2014 but was no match for Sharapova, who showed she was not ready to be usurped by the younger generation just yet in a 6-3 6-2 victory. The 27-year-old has now beaten the Canadian in each of their four meetings, three of which have been at grand slams, and set up a meeting with 10th-seeded compatriot Ekaterina Makarova for a place in the final. "I felt pretty good from the start (and) I kept my focus throughout the whole match," Sharapova told reporters.
