Australian Open – Who is the Hot Favourite?

The international tournaments are always the headliners. Be it the most famous Wimbledon, the French or the US Open. All glue tennis lovers to their TV sets when these events are taking place, watching to see with lot of enthusiasm and excitement as to who would be the champion. And so it is now the Australian Open which is making headlines.

There have been many upsets – Nadal finally quitting after a 2 down loss with a troubling knee while on the lose in the set being played. And for Britons, Murray has some very good news. The fifth seed Scot Andy Murray defeated the 14th seed Marin Cillic over four sets to become the first Briton ever to reach the final of the Australian Open in 33 years. Murray is hopeful of becoming the first British (male) Grand Slam champion since 1936 when Perry won the US Open.

In the meantime, Federer has also advanced to the final by defeating J.Tsonga in three straight sets.  So it is the battle of giants. Murray was beaten by Federer in the US Open in 2008. Would the history be made by the Briton? Wait till Sunday, when the final will be played.

And as for girls, it is always one of the W sisters making the headlines by staying on top. This time is Serena W who would be embattling Justin Henin of Belgium. Henin is playing her first grand Slam since her 18-month self retirement period. The match between the two girls is going to be tough, since SW will be putting in her every bit for a 12th grand Slam title to equal record of the legend Billie jean King. SW is also hoping to defend her title since Capriati (of USA) in 2002.

I was just looking for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the Google's issue that doesn't rank this type of informative sites closer to the top. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.
