Do You WANT The Big 4 In The AO SF Or Prefer An Upset To Spice Up The SF ???

in the last 2 slams, 3 of the Big 4 reached the SF with Kerber taking the place of Sharapova @ Wimbledon and Errani taking the place of Radwanska @ USO

just wondering if you guys prefer to see the SEWTA Big 4 contest the 2013 AO SF or whether you prefer an upset in order to see some new faces

I wouldn't mind Li instead of Aga but I'm fine with the "Big 4" reaching SF

I obviously have my favorites and they are not always top 4, but let the chips fall as they will.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!

P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

All I want is a epic match until the end of tournament, not some boring bakery products less than a hour matches

I agree so we need to hope Serena and/or Maria go home to USA early

Na beating Aga won't be a big upset

I'd love to see a competitive great final, which is really unlikely at this point. The only way of having it is without Serena, even though I do like her. So I voted for the Stephens takes place of Serena.

Maria Sharapova Na Li Francesca Schiavone Vera Zvonareva Petra Kvitova

Novak Djokovic Roger Federer Tomas Berdych Juan Martin Del Potro Richard Gasquet

A Li/ Serena final could be competitive, a Vika/Maria final could be competitive, a stephens vs anyone would be one sided.
That being said I don't mind the big 4 in the sf

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I don't mind the Big 4 reaching the SF but replacing Aga with Na would be equally fine with me

Kuznetsova Serena Na Kvitova

Djokovic Wawrinka Gasquet del Potro

Also good luck to Jankovic, Vesnina, Stosur, Pennetta, Kerber and Halep

Peak Kuznetsova vs Serena and Peak Li vs Sharapova.

This has been the most boring tournament in recent memory and it's time to spice things up.

Yeah The only time Serena spent a lot of time on court was because of the ankle

Re: Do You WANT The Big 4 In The AO SF Or Prefer An Upset To Spice Up The SF ???

The Big 4 option for me.

We were all denied the Serena vs. Azarenka matchup in Brisbane 2013, so this matchup needs to take place to settle some unfinished business and give Serena one last win over a #1 before she takes the #1 spot for the next couple months.

No way in hell is Makarova beating Sharapova unless Makarova switches nationalities before the match as all the Russians bend right over for Sharapova at Slams. Thus Sharapova is a lock for the semis.

Radwanska is having a spectacular season so far and has not dropped a set so she could quite possibly give Sharapova a challenge in the semi's.
