I wasn't able to watch the match but kept an eye on the score, sounds like the tennis was really very good. Well done to Federer for coming through that match, his matches with Tsonga always seem to be very tough but he made it through and that's all that matters. This should hopefully be a good stepping stone for Tsonga, he's played very well this week and tested the world number two in a big way. Play tournaments that well, and that consistent then he could be a threat.

Andy Murray didn't really ever look in trouble against Chardy. Very straight forward for him, and not dropping a set yet is a great stat for him. I do worry slightly that he's going into a semi final and a very tough match with Federer having not faced any kind of test in the slightest, but you can't really complain about making it through the tournament easily. He's going to be very fresh that's for sure, and he's hitting the ball very well. His issue sometimes has been concentration as he hasn't really been presented with a challenge, but against Fed he'll have to be focused the entire match.

Andy vs. Federer is a tough one to call. Federer has never lost to Andy in a grand slam, but Murrays form and his wins last year suggest he could come away with the victory. I think I'd give the edge to Murray, he's fresher, he's confident, he's won his first slam and on an outdoor hard court now, I would give Murray the advantage.

PREDICTION FOR THE FINAL

Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic

Just not a fan of Murray-Djokovic matches as all Although there match at AO last year was good

Sloane winning would be awesome, but i'm going with the winner of the other semi between Pova & Li.

I doubt it happens but it's not completely out of the questions, she's playing very, very well. Serena obviously wasn't at her best, but there's no doubt she's got a ton of talent and will be a consistent major threat in the next two or three years. I'd love for her to win.

Question. Who's the better prospect? Robson or Stephens?

It's difficult to tell. Robson a little younger than Stephens (about eight months?) so who knows what she'll be like even at the end of this year. I think both are going to be big.

Robson has had a string of big wins showing she does have the game but at the moment she's unable to bring it all together on a more consistent basis, that will come with the experience of playing the bigger tournaments more often I think. I think Stephens has a big game and is a great consistent hitter of the ball which is great. She has all the ability you could hope for, and is very good in all areas. I think she's going to be number one in the world at some point.

I think Stephens has mentioned that she thinks her and Robson may be THE womens rivalry of the future and she may very well be right. It's too difficult to predict at this point I think, but maybe based on where they are currently, Stephens is the better prospect because she's shown she can play at a very high level all tournament, Robson so far hasn't...however as I said, that very well might change with experience.

How about you?

I think Stephens as she is more consistent than Robson, and has less to work on before reaching the top. But if Robson works on her weaknesses like her footwork and movement she can become a top player too, and may be better than Sloane. But atm, i'll say Sloane. For some reason i think that Robson will be the next Kvitova
