Gah, had severe internet problems...

Anyway we're at Semi-Final stage, ladies today and it's former champ Maria Sharapova against wildcard Sabille Lisicki, and Petra Kvitova against Victoria Azarenka.  I kinda hope for a Azarenka v Lisicki final, but former tennis champ turned lady pundit thinks it'll be Shara against Kvitova if she plays well, or Azarenka. 

On the mens side there was a shock when King Roger was knocked out by Jo Wilfred Tsonga (who reached the Australian Open final several years ago) in the Quarters, Rog was two sets to love up at the time and hadn't lost from that point before.  But still you have to ask how much of a shock is it to beat Federer these days?  Even Roger seemed to have accepted his fate in the fifth set, and didn't really look like he was trying that hard.  

Anyway Tsonga will take on Djokovic, and Murray will play Nadal.  Can't see past a Djok vNadal final really, and it would be interesting to see who won it.  Novak is only 65 ranking points behind Nadal...
