Gold, Silver, Bronze

With Elena Dementieva's 6-2, 6-2 shellacking of Carla Suarez Navarro, the Olympic medalists have all advanced to the semifinals of the Australian Open.

If Serena Williams doesn't get it together against Svetlana Kuznetsova, who's about to serve for the first set a second time, there will be Russians only in the final four.

In which case I won't be watching. When Russians play each other, their matches are unbearable.

Craig, I am with you on that one. For some reason I just cannot deal with the Russians, especially LenaD.

I have nothing against them, but I simply can't tolerate their H2H encounters.

Craig--Me going to sleep. Thoughts on Verdasco v. Tsonga? Me think very tight and delicious match...please predict. I won't watch until tomorrow pm

Craig Hickman said...

I have no prediction, but I think Tsonga has a better indoor game.

We'll see.
