Rod Laver Arena
The main action will take place on Rod Laver Arena, beginning with the two women’s Semifinals in the Day session.
Tickets begin at just $94, with a mixed doubles Quarter Final on court first. Aussies Matthew Ebden and Sam Stosur will take on Hayley Carter and Sander Gille.
From here, the women’s Semifinal action begins with two powerhouses of the game in Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka.
Both former Champions of this tournament, each has been next to unstoppable in their run to the final four, only dropping one set each throughout the Slam – setting up an extremely tantalising battle between the two big-hitters.
Following Williams and Osaka will be the second women’s Semifinal between 25th seed Karolina Muchova and 22ndseed Jennifer Brady.
Muchova knocked off world #1 Ash Barty in her last match, as well as sixth seed Karolina Pliskova and 18th seed Elise Mertens on her way to the Semifinals.
A Semi Finalist previously at the 2020 US Open, this clash should again be an entertaining battle between two young stars!
The evening session will see world #1 Novak Djokovic in action. The eight-time and reigning Australian Open Champion is desperate to add another to his collection.
He will face qualifier Aslan Karatsev, who has done the seemingly impossible and reached the Semifinals in just his first Grand Slam.
Certainly not a one-hit wonder, the giant killer has taken several massive scalps in this tournament alone, his list including: Grigor Dimitrov (18th seed), Felix Auger Aliassime (20th seed) and Diego Schwartzman (eighth seed).
Can he add one more to the list?
