MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – By the end of Friday, the men’s singles finalists will be determined.

And the women’s doubles finalists will also be set – with the No. 1 and No. 2 teams still very much alive.

Can Tommy Paul trouble Novak Djokovic?

Didn’t look like it, and then he did. We’ll see.

Could Karen Khachanov, against whom Tsitsipas is 5-0, pull off an upset there?

Nah. Effort was there, Tsitsipas just too good.

Luisa Stefani (who has made an impressive comeback from a horrible knee injury suffered on court at the US Open with bestie Gabriela Dabrowski, wins her first major – the mixed with countryman Rafael Matos.

Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
