Serena Williams' "Impossible" Australian Open
01.27.07 MELBOURNE -- Serena Williams ranked 81 has defeated world number one Maria Sharapova in only 63 minutes 6-1, 6-2 to win her third Australian Open title in breathtaking fashion. Limiting Sharapova to only winning 3 games, Williams displayed some of her best tennis ever hitting forehand, backhand and volley winners with ease for a total of 28 winners. On her serve Williams hit 7 aces and was never broken. After the match a teary-eyed Serena dedicated the win to her half-sister who was murdered in Los Angeles in 2003.

Serena Williams Faces Maria Sharapova In Australian Open Final
01.25.07 MELBOURNE -- Wednesday night USA time, Serena Williams defeated the 10th seed Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic in the Australian Open semifinals 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 to advance to the women's final match to be played Friday night USA time. In the final Serena will face the top seed and world number one Maria Sharapova of Russia. Head to head Serena is tied with Maria 2-2 and won their last match right here in Melbourne in the semifinals after saving a matchpoint two years ago 2-6 7-5 8-6 in a thriller of a match. As I remember Maria and Serena both were striking the ball extremely hard, but Serena mixed in some net play and loops to win. After the win, Serena engaged in a huge jumping up and down over and over. The bad news is Maria is playing better than she was two years ago, while Serena is not playing as consistent as she was back then. All in all I think Serena's 85% is better than most's 100% so I'm picking Serena to beat Maria in three sets as I did before the tournament started. FULL REPORT

Serena Williams Overcomes Peer Pressure
01.23.07 MELBOURNE -- Serena has defeated Shahar Peer 3-6, 6-2, 8-6 after leading 4-1 in set three. Peer was running down almost everything but Serena was able to pull out some key aces (11 total) near the end plus some major groundstrokes winners. (30 total winners.) Serena: "I wasn't playing my best tennis..I'm the ultimate competitor." Serena plays Nicole Vaidisova in the semifinals Wednesday night USA time. Williams has never played Vaidisova before. Vaidisova is a major big baseline hitter and big server and plays a lot like Serena's sister Venus Williams. Could be a catfight Wednesday night. Hopefully Serena will be feeling better from her cold and foot blister. She will need to bring out some of her best tennis to stop Nicole, but I think she will.

Serena Williams Into Australian Open Quarterfinals
01.22.07 MELBOURNE -- It's week two of the Australian Open and not many people other than thought Serena Williams would still be here. Serena plays the second match tonight (USA time) on the Laver Arena at we estimate 7:45pm CST USA. So Tivo/VCR Prisonbreak/Heros/24 and get ready. Hopefully ESPN2 will decide to show the match live. If not you can watch it on the internet live. The link is in here. Go through the thread to find it. "Bynx" posted it. Back to the match, Peer is only 19 years old and I think Serena will overwhelm her with her aggressive game. More match up information is below.

Serena Williams' "Impossible" Australian Open Continues
01.21.07 MELBOURNE -- Serena Williams' "Impossible" Australian Open continues as she defeated "favorite" Jelena Jankovic 6-3, 6-2 tonight in the round of sixteen hitting 8 aces, 31 winners to 28 errors. Williams broke Jankovic's serve four times. Jankovic fought hard but was unable to derail Serena's mix of power and precision. And as if she needed it, Serena Williams' draw became "easier" tonight as "favorties" Amelie Mauresmo and Svetlana Kuznetsova both lost. In the quarterfinals Serena plays Shahar Peer of Israel. Head to head Serena leads Peer 1-0, winning in Miami 2005 6-3, 6-3.

Mission Impossible: Can Serena Stop Red Hot Jankovic?
01.20.07 MELBOURNE -- Impossible? Nothing's impossible and Serena Williams will need to do almost that as tonight 9:30pm CST USA (Estimated Time) at the Australian Open round of sixteen she (5-1) faces red hot Jelena Jankovic who is 12-1 this year and who won her last match not only against Serena but also against her sister Venus Williams at Wimbledon last year. The Venus camp revealed Venus had wrist pain, but still it is not easy to beat Venus Williams when she is serving 125mph serves like nothing. Matchup info is below, but really that does not mean a lot in this match. Both play a big babe baseline game. Serena will need to simply out play Jelena. If Serena can hit more winners than errors she has a good chance to advance to the quarterfinals. Keep a lookout for nerves from either player.

01.19.07 MELBOURNE -- Thursday night USA time at the Australian Open in round three, Serena Williams staged a remarkable comeback from 1-6, 3-5 to defeat 5th seeded Nadia Petrova 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 in 2 hours and 5 minutes. This was Serena's first win versus a top 10 player in 2 years mostly due to Serena's recent knee injury which has kept her off the court. Williams started the match hitting extremely hard and then in sets two and three, she cleaned up her errors while slamming a 125mph serve to win. In round four Saturday night USA time, Williams faces red hot Jelena Jankovic of Serbia who defeated Serena in their last meeting last year 6-4, 6-3 and is one of a handful of players with a winning head to head versus Serena (2-1). Serena will need to be aggressive and eliminate her errors in order to win. Jankovic plays a similar baseline game as Serena, but not as powerful. Some Hope For Williams Fans: In those two "wins," Serena had to quit in the first one injured at 0-6, 3-4. Serena lost the second one after winning two long 3 sets matches that week in Los Angeles (without a day off) so Serena will have a day's rest this time versus Jelena. (You can use this also as material to argue with "Serena haters." LOL)

01.18.07 MELBOURNE -- Serena Williams has her work cut out for her tonight USA Time (6pm CST) as she faces sixth ranked Russian Nadia Petrova. More matchup information is below. And wouldn't you know it, ESPN/ESPN2 is not scheduled to show the match live. But believe Serena fans will be watching it on the internet and following the live scores online.

In the third round Williams faces sixth ranked Nadia Petrova of Russia in what should be a tough match. Head to head Serena leads 5-1, but in their last meeting at the 2005 Australian Open, Serena struggled to win 6-1 3-6 6-3.

01.12.07 MELBOURNE -- Serena Williams' knee injury forced her off the WTA Tour for months making her ranking fall to 93 which means she is unseeded at next week's Australian Open. But Serena got a good draw; not drawing any top player in the first few rounds. Williams does face a seed in round one, but she should be able to easily get past 27th seeded Mara Santangelo of Italy.

01.10.07 HOBART -- A shock today as Serena Williams has lost to unknown Sybille Bammer of Austria 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the Hobart quarterfinals.
