Jo-Wilfried Tsonga loves the Australian Open. Two years ago the unseeded Muhammad Ali-lookalike knocked out Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray en route to his first major final.

You learn never to write off Serena Williams, but the American produced a comeback here today remarkable even by her own standards. Victoria Azarenka was leading their Australian Open quarter-final by a set and 4-0 before Williams finally got her game together to win 4-6, 7-6, 6-2. The world No 1 had been on course for a semi-final showdown with her sister, Venus, but instead she will play Li Na, who joins her fellow Chinese, Zheng Jie, in the last four. Li beat Venus 2-6, 7-6, 7-5.
