Nadal is safely through to the final of the Australian Open. He dominated Tsitsipas from start to finish and crushed the Greek player 6-2 6-4 6-0. Tsitsipas can still be extremely proud of his achievement but Nadal was a step too far this time. I look forward to seeing his progress in the rest of the season.
Kvitova continues her very impressive run with a straight sets win over Danielle Collins in their semi final clash. Kvitova has not dropped a set in the Open so far and will now meet Naomi Osaka in the final on Saturday.
Osaka overcame the woman who knocked out Serena Williams, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic, in 3 sets. Osaka looks strong, but will face a big test in Petra Kvitova. Kvitova will no doubt be favourite, but not by a large margin. Osaka could win her second Grand Slam in a row in a couple of days time. She defeated Serena Williams in the final Grand Slam of 2018, the US Open. An interesting match in prospect.
