Most SF at Australian Open

Just a fun fact...

Maria Sharapova's quarterfinal win puts her in the semifinals for the sixth time in her career. She has now been in the semifinals more times than Steffi Graf (5x), Lindsay Davenport (5x), and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario (5x).

If Serena wins her quarterfinal, she will also have six semifinal Australian Open appearances.

Sharapova, Evert, Seles, and Hingis all have six appearances.

Navratilova 9x
Clijsters 7x
Sharapova 6x
Evert 6x
Hingis 6x
Seles 6x
S.Williams* 5x
Davenport 5x
Graf 5x
Sanchez-Vicario 5x
Henin 4x

Re: Most SF at Australian Open

Only slam Serena has never lost in the SF or Final then? Impressive. If Sloane doesn't beat her, history doesn't look good for the other 3

That may be impressive, but she only won the title once

Re: Most SF at Australian Open

Is the silver slam something like a Sereta slam ?

I don't get why any players achievements always have to be denigrated by comparing unfavorably to another.
Yes, Sharapova only won once ? So what ? Reaching the semis at a GS this many times is still a great achievement - it's somewhat surprising that Steffi Graf only made the semis 5 times...but she also tended to miss the AO a lot.

Difference is just that Graf went on to win the title 4 times out of these 5 SF appearances

Impressive? Just means Serena has bombed out early too many times (for her standards) at the Oz open.

Re: Most SF at Australian Open

She needs a second title! It's a sign.

Then again, doesn't bode well for her if she's struck up against somebody who's 5/5.
