January 30, 2020

Stuns World No.1 Ash Barty

Feisty American 14th seed Sofia Kenin stunned world number one and home hope Ashleigh Barty to reach her first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open on Thursday.

Kenin will play unseeded Garbine Muguruza, who defeated Romania’s fourth seed Simona Halep in the second semi-final, in Saturday’s final after her surprise 7-6 (8/6), 7-5 victory.

Nadal, Wawrinka knocked-out

Austria’s Dominic Thiem stunned Rafael Nadal Wednesday to send the world number one tumbling out of the Australian Open and set up a semi-final against Alexander Zverev.

The fifth seed, beaten by Nadal in the last two French Open finals, battled past the Spaniard 7-6 (7/3), 7-6 (7/4), 4-6, 7-6 (8/6) to deny him a crack at a record-equalling 20th Grand     Slam title.

He will now meet German seventh seed Zverev who shattered the dreams of veteran Stan Wawrinka 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 to book a maiden place in a Grand Slam last four.

The semi-final clash between Thiem and Zverev is scheduled on Jan.31 at 2 pm.
