Local hero Matt made it into the doubles final. That must be one of the biggest surprises of the Australian Open this year.
The 22yo and his Italian partner had an impressive run here and they obviously only have one goal now...the title! But it will be tough as they will face another great Chinese team, Jaco-He/safinfans629 in the final.
The Chinese players showed that they all are in amazing shape this year and they will give everything to take the title.
Italian Raul is the most experienced one of all four. He´s already 36 but still is hungry for success and 100% fit but Team China with top player Jaco He is the favourite for most experts...don´t miss this interesting final, it will be the first match of the night session in the Rod Laver Arena, starting 7pm local time!
