Semi Final 1 – Stefanos Tsitsipas v Rafael Nadal
We’re expecting that the talk-of-the-town, 20-year-old Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas can run Rafael Nadal ragged and make an unexpected appearance in his first Grand Slam Final.
Tsitsipas to defeat Nadal
Semi Final 2 – Novak Djokovic v Lucas Pouille
It would be a major surprise if the 28th-ranked Frenchman Pouille can deny #1 seed Novak Djokovic from appearing his 7th Australian Open Final. Novak is well-rested following the retirement of Kei Nishikori in his Quarter-Final after only a set-and-half. History beckons for Djokovic to become the first player to win 7 Australian Opens.
Djokovic to defeat Pouille
Semi Final 1 – Petra Kvitova v Danielle Collins
Unseeded American Danielle Collins has overcome all expectations to reach the last 4.
We believe that Petra Kvitova form’s is irresistible and should have too much class and experience for the American.
Kvitova to defeat Collins
Semi Final 2 – Karolina Pliskova v Naomi Osaka
U.S. Open Champion, Naomi Osaka could and should prevent an all Czech Australian Open final in Melbourne.
While Karolina Pliskova was amazing in her comeback against Serena Williams, she may have used up too much mental and physical energy in doing so to defeat the powerful Japanese player.
