AUSTRALIAN OPEN


http://www.livingedgerental.com.au/images/AO-Grand-Slam-Asia-Pacific8_000.jpg


Welcome to the Australian Open - the first Grand Slam of Season 5! Our first 16 Grand Slams have been won by 14 different women, which shows the great depth we have here on the OWTT Tour. Will we get another repeat winner, or will a new Slam champ come to the fore once again? The warm-up events were won by Michelle Larcher de Brito and Daniela Hantuchova, who will be looking to transfer their good form here.

Defending champ and #2 seed Wickmayer really struggled in Sydney, so will have to work hard to find their form here in Melbourne. Davenport makes her season debut here and will be looking to find the game that took her all the way to the title in Season 3.

Not sure what that would achieve apart from stopping her drinking all her beer and getting drunk, so don't know why you would do that!

Maybe her leg would be a better option? :shrug:

4-6 6-4 6-3


Molik really had to dig deep here today to pull out the win. At a set and 4-1 up it looked like Benesova would cause the upset but she couldn't close the door on Molik as the Aussie came roaring back and was the more confident of the two in the final set. This is the best we have seen Banesova play in a long while though so well done to her

Safarova def. (10) Davenport
6-0 6-4*


Safarova got a little lucky with a net cord to give her a 5-3 lead in the second, which proved to be crucial in the end. Hard luck for Davenport, but still a good start to the season for her. Safarova moves on to face Molik in the semis

6-4 6-7(12) 7-5


Match of the tournament!! Both women were playing fantastic tennis, and it was full of drama. Venus dug deep to come back from 0-4 to win the first set. The second set breaker was one of the best ever seen, with Safina saving 8 match points to take it to a third set. Safina got the early lead but wasn't able to maintain her level as Venus just edged it home 7-5 in the end. Heartbreak for Safina but Venus moves on to face Na Li in the semis.

Safarova def. (9) Molik
6-4 6-0


Despite the crowd's best efforts, Molik was unable to grab the first set and she seemed to completely collapse after that as Safarova romped home to make her first ever Slam final.

(11) V.Williams def. (4) Na Li
2-6 6-2 7-5


Really tense final set here as well. Venus moved into a 5-3 lead but was unable to close out as Na Li broke back for 5-5. But as soon as it looked like Na Li had the momentum, Venus snatched it back and was able to wrap it up 7-5 and book her spot in her first ever Grand Slam final. She made the final in Sydney but lost - she will be hoping to fare better tomorrow when she takes on the giant-killing Safarova

(11) V.Williams def. Safarova
0-6 7-5 6-0


Venus was so nervous coming into this match and she quickly found herself 6-0 2-0 down and it looke like it would be a complete whitewash. However, she managed to get her first game on the board after a long deuce game, which gave her a huge boost of confidence. Once Venus found her game, she played some fantastic tennis and fought her way back into the match. Once she took the tight second set there was no looking back as she raced through the decider to claim her first Grand Slam. She will jump up to #4 in the new rankings. A brilliant tournament for Safarova sees her return to the Top 16 at #15.
