As we approach half way through the first week, the Australian Open has been pretty straightforward. The favorites have not missed a beat coming out firing and hungry for the first Grand Slam of the season.
Before we look ahead to the exciting third round matches, especially on the women’s side (Sharapova-Venus, Ivanovic-Jankovic) there is still one more day of second round action featuring Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka.
Will Serena be hampered by her ankle? Can Gale Monfils continue his comeback trail? Will the hot weather forecasted for today take its toll on the favorites?
Here are the bold predictions for day four.
