Australian Open Day 10 Singles Results & Quick Hits
- The Women’s semi-finals are set – Britain’s Johanna Konta’s great run as the last Brit standing came to an end at the hands of World No. 2 and six-time Australian open champion Serena Williams. She picked up her level once more – sending the Brit home one round earlier than last year – READ FULL RECAP
- The fairy-tale continues for Mirjana Lucic-Baroni – she completely nullified hot favourite Karolina Pliskova, who was many pundit’s favourite to 3win a maiden Slam here in Australia. The back story is intriguing, and the Croatian faces Williams in a Slam 19 years after they met at Wimbledon when they were being seen as the next new things.
- Rafael Nadal is in a Slam semi-final for the first time since he won the title at Roland Garros in 2014, notching up his 50th Australian Open match win in the process.

Day 11 – Schedule & Highlights
- Only two of our Women’s semi-finalists have won Grand Slams – and they are of course the Williams sisters. Venus has never won here in Australia, reaching the final in 2003. Williams is bidding for her seventh title here, and overall 23 to overtake Steffi Graf in the Open era rankings.
- Both Lucic-Baroni and Coco Vandeweghe are bidding to reach their maiden Grand Slam final.
- Neither Serena nor Venus have dropped a set on the way to the semi-finals with Serena having dropped the fewest games (32) and spent the3 least amount of time on court (6h 47m).
- On the men’s side the speculation is rife – can Roger Federer reach the final on his comeback or will Stan Wawrinka overturn a 0-13 record against his compatriot on hard courts.
- Wawrinka, who won the US Open at the end of last year is looking for his 13th consecutive Grand Slam win, and the Australian open is his most successful in terms of matches won., he has a 36-10 win-loss record compared to the US Open (38-11), Roland Garros (32-11) and Wimbledon (18-12).
