About 2023 Australian Open Men's and Women's Semifinals
The Australian Open semis mark the end of the first major tennis event of the season, and this year the eight players remaining come from all throughout the tournament’s draw. Both the men’s and women’s side will see an unseeded player take to the court one win away from the finals.
Fifth-seeded Belarusian star Aryna Sabalenka is the highest-ranked woman still alive as she will take on unseeded Polish player Magda Linette in the second of Thursday’s semis. The other women’s match will see Kazakhstani player Elena Rybakina, the tourney’s No. 22 seed, take on No. 24 Victoria Azarenka from Belarus. If Sabalenka and Azarenka both advance, we could have an all-Belarusian battle on the blue Australian Open court this Saturday.
On the men’s side of the AO semifinals, No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece will face battles 18th-seeded Russian Karen Khachanov. Then early on Friday (in the United States at least) top-seeded Serb Novak Djokovic will face unseeded American Tommy Paul. Fortunately for the Australian Open line judges, Tommy is no relation to YouTubers turned boxers and mixed martial artists Logan and Jake Paul.
The temperature at Australian Open 2023 should be fairly moderate for the semifinals, reaching a very nice high of 69°. However, the temps are forecasted to reach as high as 94° on Saturday for the women’s final before falling back down to 71° for the men’s finale on Sunday.
