    And Kuznetsova and Wozniacki played almost four hours in the heat yesterday. I'm wondering if there will be any residual effect next week from players who had to battle through the heat this week. (And big kudos to Li Na, who's won eight straight matches, despite having to travel and transition from 40 degree Shenzhen to 90 degree Sydney.)

    I'm not sure whether to trust the forecast the Weather Network is giving me for Melbourne. THey're forecasting a high of 35 C Friday, 25 C Saturday and then only 16 C Sunday, with 20 mm of rain. Then very comfortable temperatures for the first few days of play, before spiking above 30 again Thursday/Friday.
    I use the Bureau of Meteorology website to check the weather usually as I find it's more reliable.

    Two of the second-tier favourites for the Australian Open are off to great starts this year--eight consecutive wins each (okay, one by efor ARad). Shame they had to meet in the semis here.

    I'm conflicted. With so many matches and the crazy heat, it definitely seems like a scenario where the SF loser might be better off. However, Radwanska's level barely dips at all even when she's near death, and Li is a rhythm player. When she made the AO final in 2011 it was after winning Sydney. She'll also be a bit less weary of the heat because her first tournament was in a winter climate.

    I can still see both players doing well.

    Aga was just way too creative today for Li Na Li.

    I can't put my finger on the reason why, but I really don't enjoy watching Kerber. So hooray for Domi taking her out. Domi's skirt was as short as ever, and I imagine she'll fall right into Radwanska's trap in the final (keep the ball in play, toss in a few angles and changes of pace, and watch opponent's UEs pile up).

    I've seen Cibulkova let people steamroll her before (for example a 0 and 3 beating by Kirilenko a couple years back in Montreal), but a 0 and 0 in the final is pretty special.
