The semi-final fixtures for the Australian Open 2015 have been confirmed and the fans will be extremely excited as both matches are destined to be great. On one hand, world number 6 Andy Murray will play against Tomas Berdych, who is ranked only one place below the Scot. Yet, only last month Berdych took on Murray’s recently departed former trainer, Dani Vallverdu, meaning Vallverdu will have a good game plan in place for the match. In the other semi-final there will be a classic Australian Open matchup between world number one Novak Djokovic and defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka.
Tomas Berdych has the advantage of having someone on his team who knows exactly how Murray plays; that semi-final could go on for the full five sets. Also, for the past two meetings between Novak Djokovic and Stanislas Wawrinka at the Australian Open, they have both gone on for the full 5 sets. Two years ago, the pair met in the fourth round and Djokovic needed 5 sets to separate them and continue on to win the title that year. Last year, Wawrinka met the Serb in a 5 set quarter-final thriller and went on to claim his first ever Grand Slam title. This year they meet in the semi-final, but with one victory against each other in Melbourne, who will be victorious on Friday?
Novak Djokovic commented on his Australian Open semi-final clash with Wawrinka, “The crowd are definitely expecting a marathon like last couple of years. We always ask from each other the most of our abilities.” The Serb continued to talk about his quarter-final victory, “From the first game till the last, I played the way I wanted. I created a lot of breakpoint opportunities. The key of tonight’s match, one of the keys, was to get as many balls back in play, returns back in play. I thought from the back of the court I had more chance than him to win the points. I executed very, very well.”
