    Bouchard regretful as Slam chance goes begging

    Canadian seventh seed Eugenie Bouchard admitted she was full of regrets on Tuesday after blowing the chance to make a Grand Slam statement against second seed Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open. The 20-year-old, hyped as the rising star of a new generation destined for glory at the majors, was seeded seventh at Melbourne Park but looked outclassed in her quarter-final against the Russian five-time Slam champion. Bouchard insisted she had chances to win the match, including two break points in the first set, but failed to seize them. Bouchard was the most consistent player at Grand Slams last year, making the Australian and French semis along with the Wimbledon final.

  • Djokovic, Wawrinka set up epic showdown, ill Serena through

    By Greg Stutchbury MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Top seed Novak Djokovic and champion Stan Wawrinka set up 'The Djoker v The Man 3.0' at Melbourne Park after impressive quarter-final victories on Wednesday, while an ill Serena Williams moved a step closer to her 19th grand slam title. The American, however, will first have to overcome the pure hitting of Madison Keys after the 19-year-old ended the fairytale run of Serena's older sister Venus, despite suffering from a thigh injury that hampered her movement. With many suggesting prior to the tournament it could signify an epochal shift in both games, the teenager represents the up and comers in the semi-finals after Djokovic and Wawrinka crushed the last hopes of 'Generation Next' in the men's draw. Djokovic, seeking to become the second man to win a fifth Australian Open title, beat Canada's Milos Raonic 7-6(5) 6-4 6-2 in the late match on Rod Laver Arena, hours after Wawrinka had easily dispatched fifth seed Kei Nishikori 6-3 6-4 7-6(6).

    Djokovic, Serena on fire to make Aussie semis

    Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams lived up to their top billing Wednesday with the world number ones ripping apart Milos Raonic and Dominika Cibulkova to power into the Australian Open semi-finals. Both were in outstanding touch as they hunt for more Grand Slam glory with Djokovic meeting defending champion Stan Wawrinka for a place in the final while Williams will face unseeded Madison Keys. Big-serving Canadian eighth seed Raonic had no answer to Djokovic's superior all-court game and was ruthlessly swept aside 7-6 (7/5), 6-4, 6-2, surrendering meekly after just two hours. "I'm going to be ready for a fight against Stan," said the Serb, gunning for an eighth Grand Slam title and a fifth in Melbourne.
