Women's Australian Open Semifinal Previews: Ash Barty vs. Madison Keys; Iga Swiatek vs. Danielle Collins

This is interesting: World No. 1 vs. the momentum player of the tournament. Power vs. craft. A home-country favorite trying to win her first home Slam vs. an American trying to win her first Slam anywhere. We know how the points and rallies will likely play out: Keys will hit heavy ground strokes, while Barty will attempt to defuse or obviate that attack with slice, angles, serving, the occasional net rush and her own off-forehand. As Barty’s coach, Craig Tyzzer, says, “Look, she played [Camila] Giorgi who hits the ball a million miles an hour, and was able to absorb that pace and do something with it. I think Ash has other attributes. Her forehand is actually a weapon. Her slice will set her up a lot for her forehand. Her serve sets her up a lot for her shots as well.”

Iga Swiatek advances as Guadalajara finalists Muguruza, Kontaveit exit Australian Open

WATCH: Cornet addressed the Rod Laver Arena crowd after scoring her first Top 3 win since 2015. The 2022 Australian Open saw its first big upsets of the fortnight as last year’s WTA Finals finalists—try saying that five times fast—tumbled out of the draw within minutes of one another. Champion and No. 3 seed Garbiñe Muguruza appeared among the top contenders for a maiden Melbourne title only to find herself overmatched by veteran Frenchwoman Alizé Cornet, while runner-up and No. 6 seed Anett Kontaveit had too few answers against surging teenager Clara Tauson.

Muguruza, Swiatek ease through openers at Australian Open

Her last two matches Rod Laver Arena ended in defeat, but Garbiñe Muguruza got off to a winning start on the Australian Open's main court in 2022 with a 6-3, 6-4 win over France's Clara Burel. The No.3 seed was pushed over the course of 88 minutes by the...

Iga Swiatek, Poland’s tennis ace, has learned plenty from one of the best to hold ski poles, Mikaela Shiffrin—and vice versa

This whole Olympic experience and stuff is pretty crazy. So now I understand it more. R E S P E C T for everything that you achieved and how you did that. Iga Swiatek was born with Olympic DNA. Her father Tomasz rowed in the quadruple sculls at the 1988 Summer Games, finishing seventh. The 20-year-old’s dream of qualifying for her own Olympic team came to fruition when she represented Poland at the Tokyo Games in July 2021. She went as far to tell the ITF in an interview that bringing home a medal would “probably be the highlight of my career” before the tournament started.
