Marching into her first Grand Slam semifinal, unseeded Magda Linette said it was a “dream come true” after beating former world number one Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 7-5 at the Australian Open had defeated.

Linette continued the flag for Poland after the shock elimination of world no.

“I’m so emotional, I can’t believe it,” Linette said. “It’s a dream come true. I’m super thankful and happy. Thanks for the cheering and support, I really needed that.

“So let’s move on. I don’t want to get too upset because we’re still in the tournament,” added the world No. 45, who will break into the top 30 for the first time thanks to her performance in Melbourne.

It was Linette’s first round of 16 match at this level, but you wouldn’t have known as she bounced back coolly after an early collapse against the hard-hitting Czech, winning the first set in 35 minutes.

“In the beginning I definitely stayed calm because she had a really good break right at the beginning of the game,” said Linette.

“I knew how hard it was going to be to push them back so I really stayed calm and I’m really glad I took my chance when I had it.

“I’m glad I managed to serve and later, when I had the opportunity to break it again, I took my chance.

“I’ll never forget that. This is, you know, the first time I’ve ever broken through. It’ll be with me for the rest of my life.”

13:20 WHY IS ROGER UPTURNED?

He’s not in Melbourne this year but he can still make headlines.

So what is Roger Federer doing hanging upside down in his underpants?

The tennis legend was pictured in his underwear, wearing a bathing cap and hung from the ceiling in the name of art.

Swiss artist and sculptor Ugo Rondinone approached the Swiss maestro – who has since retired from the sport – to be part of a massive exhibition called ‘Cloud Six’.

Federer was placed in the bizarre poses for the artist to capture his 3D character.

Federer reportedly spent hours in full body casts, hung from a harness and even had his entire face covered in silicone.

The entire ordeal was caught on camera for a documentary called Portrait of a Champion.

“I feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to work with both Ugo Rondinone and Credit Suisse as I have long admired the art world,” said Federer.

“This new experience gave me the chance to push myself out of my comfort zone and opened my eyes to learn about the intricate processes of creating art.”

12:07 p.m. OPEN STAR RESPONDS TO HATEFUL ACT PRE-ACCLUSION

Australian Open semi-finalist Karen Khachanov has been accused of a “hateful act” over messages he posted on TV camera lenses after his matches.

The Russian star, who reached the last four after Sebastian Korda retired in the quarterfinals, wrote: “Believe to the end. Artsakh, hold on!” after his fourth-round win over Frances Tiafoe.

He previously wrote “Artsakh stay strong” after a previous round.

His messages refer to the Republic of Artsakh, which is currently blocked by Azerbaijan.

Now the Tennis Federation of Azerbaijan says it has protested to Australian Open and ITF chiefs, demanding that the 18th seed be “punished with harsh measures”.

“The Azerbaijan Tennis Federation (ATF) has sent a letter of protest to the International Tennis Federation regarding the provocation against Azerbaijan at the Australian Open Tennis Grand Slam,” read a statement.

“Karen Khachanov, a Russian athlete of Armenian origin who reached the men’s 1/16 final, attracted attention with his hateful act. Khachanov wrote “Artsakh stay strong” on camera after beating his American rival Frances Tiafoe 3-1.

“The letter of the Azerbaijan Tennis Union presented facts and legal documents regarding the provocation against Azerbaijan. The ATF condemned this act and called for the tennis player to be punished and called on the International Tennis Federation to take tough measures to prevent such incidents in the future.”

When asked what he wrote after securing a place in the semifinals, Khachanov said: “I have Armenian roots from my father’s side, from my grandfather’s side, even from my mother’s side – I’m half Armenian .

“I just wanted to show my people strength and support. That’s it.”

11:07 SEMIFINALS RUN

Magda Linette is serious this year.

The 30-year-old Pole won the first set 6:3 in her semi-final against Karolina Pliskova.

Heat is definitely a factor for both women today. This first term plays out in 35 minutes.

I can’t help but feel this one going the distance.

09:32 WHERE IS PENG SHUAI?

A senior Human Rights Watch researcher has urged Tennis Australia to use its Grand Slam spotlight to advocate for the “not free” Peng Shuai.

Peng, once world No. 14, is believed to have disappeared in November 2021 after he accused retired Chinese Communist Party Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault in a social media post.

Peng performed in a controlled manner in 2022 after the “Where is Peng Shuai?” movement and has since denied making the allegations.

The Women’s Tennis Association, which has suspended all events in China, is confident Peng is “safe and comfortable” but admits they still have progress to make in their attempt to meet with her privately – their ultimatum for the return to the lucrative market.

Yaqiu Wang, senior China researcher at Human Rights Watch, said from New York that Peng’s recent performances were coerced and that TA should use the Australian Open spotlight to call for her release.

09:06 AM RANKING NO. 1 WRAP

Stefanos Tsitsipas said he was “a different player” than in the past after blasting into a fourth Australian Open semifinal and showdown with Karen Khachanov.

The third-seeded Greek proved too strong for unseeded Czech Jiri Lehecka at the Rod Laver Arena, storming home 6-3 7-6 (7/2) 6-4 as he set out for a first major title focused.

He meets 18th-seeded Russia’s Khachanov for a spot in his first final at Melbourne Park, having previously fallen in the semifinals three times, including in the last two years.

Russia’s Khachanov booked his place when American Sebastian Korda retired injured with a wrist injury, trailing 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 3-0.

Asked if he felt different from previous years and believed this could finally be his year, Tsitsipas, 24, said: “I feel great with my tennis. I don’t think I’ve felt this good in a long time.

“I will definitely say yes to that. I said it, I’m a different player, play different. My mentality is different.

“When I’m on the pitch I don’t really think about negatives, to be honest. I’ll just go out and play the game.” Tsitsipas, who will become world number one if he wins the title, benefited from the energy of the crowd in Melbourne.

7:30 A CHAMPION’S FEARS

Reaching her first semi-final at the Australian Open since winning the title in 2013, Victoria Azarenka spoke on Tuesday about overcoming “anxiety” and “fears of failure” on the court.

The Belarusian, who won back-to-back Australian Opens in 2012 and 2013, defeated third-seeded Jessica Pegula 6-4, 6-1 on Tuesday.

The 24th seed outlasted her American opponent in a 64-minute marathon in the first set before running away in the second set to set up a last four encounter at Melbourne Park against Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina.

When asked about her struggles with nervousness and anxiety, Azarenka described what she’d been going through in recent years and how it kept her from winning another Major.

“I don’t think you’ll recognize it right away. I think it builds up until you get to a pretty bad spot where nothing makes sense anymore,” she told reporters.

“You kind of feel lost. I was at the point where I couldn’t find anything that made me feel good, not even a sentence.” When asked what her biggest concern was, Azarenka was blunt. “The fear of failure is great. Not being able to do what I want to do,” she said. “I’ve had panic attacks before.”

07:00 KYRGIOS V BERNIE: TWIST IN AUSTRALIAN SPORT’S UGLIEST FEHD

Is the drop in temperature about one of the fiercest feuds in Australian sport?

It certainly seems so as Bernard Tomic hands longtime foe Nick Kyrgios an olive branch.

Tomic, whose world ranking has slipped to 468, posted a message to Kyrgios on his Instagram account wishing the showman a speedy recovery from his knee surgery.

“Despite our differences, we go way back. Wish (Nick Kyrgios) a speedy recovery. I hope to see him back on the track soon,” wrote Tomic.

Kyrgios was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open on day one of the tournament before he could even bat a ball.

He immediately underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean his lateral meniscus and remove a paralabral cyst.

Kyrgios posted a message to his fans on his Instagram account after the successful operation.

“I will do everything to be my best again,” he wrote.

“To the real ones checking in and sending vibes…I love you.”

It’s unclear where Tomic sits in the “real” ranking.

The feud between Kyrgios and Tomic dates back years and was only active last month.

Then Tomic was overlooked for both the main draw and wildcard qualifiers for that year’s Open, prompting a fan to tweet that the Queenslander “certainly” deserved one.

Kyrgios then chimed in, tweeting “Hahahahaha NO HE DOESNT”.

Also last year, during an Instagram Q&A, Kyrgios was asked if he would consider an exhibition match against Tomic.

He replied by saying:

“TBH (to be honest) don’t think I want to make him relevant anymore. I will not bother about someone who is 800 in the world. But all the best.”
