Australian Open Results- Day 10

One lesson was learned on Day 10 of the Australian Open, and it was a lesson that we all probably already know. Never doubt a William sister. Down a set to Svetlana Kuznetsova, Serena Williams came back, under a closed roof because of excruciating temperatures on court (high of 145), and managed to reach another Grand Slam semifinal. Also, the semifinals are now set. Serena will be playing Elena Dementieva, who easily defeated Carla Suarez Navarro, and Dinara Safina will take on Vera Zvonareva. Also, Spaniard southpaws Rafael Nadal and Fernando Verdasco booked spots in the semis.
