TWD's Sports Thread For 1/25/12: The 2012 Australian Open, Women Semifinal

The Tactics

For Azarenka
1) Hit Your Serve As Hard as possible, and establish the rhythm.
2) Mid court precision and close out the point.
3) Try everything, turn around the point, and just weather the storm

For Clijsters
1) Stay ruthless.
2) You are the big hitter and turn around the points.
3) This is your final Aussie Open, continue to have that spirit.

Prediction: With her being over her ankle, I just see Clijsters destined to this title. Azarenka has been terrific, but she just has to hope Clijsters has a horrid day to win this, and I just don't see that.

Clijsters: 7-5, 6-4.
