Finals action is heating up on Rod Laver Arena with the quarter finals being wrapped up today featuring Roger Federer against French frontrunner Jo Wilfred Tsonga. Another comparably unknown Frenchman Jeremy Chardy takes on the in form Andy Murray. Although their recent contests have been very close, Novak Djokovic and Spaniard David Ferrer are semi-finalists on the other side of the draw.
Likewise in the ladies draw, all top-three seeds (Victoria Azarenka, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams) are in semi-finals action. Sixth seed Li Na however looks set to confuse the mix after defeating fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska.
The Tour Down under is on a new route today going through Mt Barker, Echunga and Hahndorf to reach Rostrevoir. German Andre Greipel will be hoping to build on his win in Stage 1 on Tuesday.
Richard Evans and Angus Randall compared notes on the Tennis and discussed the lack of Tour Down Under reporting outside of Australia.
