PYW Australian Open - 2nd Semifinal [Williams vs Zheng] | Vote NOW!
PYW Australian Open
Welcome to Melbourne, Australia! This is what the past two weeks have all been revolving around: the Australian Open is here! Players will need their good preparation to get them far into the draw of the first Grand Slam of the year. Last year we saw Elena Dementieva marching up to claim the Australian Open title for the 3rd time in her career. She lost her #1 spot to Jelena Janković last week, but she still is the player to beat. Can she win her 4th Australian Open? We still have a long way to go before we get that answer. VOTE as the competition reaches the semifinal stage!
