Loving Memories of a Special Son
To lose someone so special
is really hard to bear
it hardly seems believable
that you’re no longer there
You left us far too early
before your time, it seems
and now you’ll never have the chance
to fulfill all those dreams
However hard it is though
we’ll take comfort I the thought
of all the memories we have
and the happiness you brought
You always lived life to the full
but ours won’t be the same
until the day when we can see
your smiling face again.
MELBOURNE—No shame. It’s the
simple summary of Angelique Ker-
ber’s bid for a second Australian
Open singles title yesterday.
Kerber’s competitive qualities al-
most compensated for that sinking
feeling after succumbing 6-3, 4-6,
9-7 to top-seeded Simona Halep in
a gripping semifinal struggle.
The 2016 champion didn’t lose
the match—she forced Halep to
win it after a gritty comeback
that nearly launched the German
lefthander into another Saturday
night final at Melbourne Park.
And this comeback after trail-
ing a set and a break wasn’t man-
ufactured against some ranking
underling. It was a sustained
counter-offensive against the No.
1-player seemingly in control of
“My heart was on the court,
that’s the most important thing for
me,” Kerber said. “Of course, I’m a
little bit sad, but I’ll go with a good
feeling back home.”
Of those match points, Kerber
said: “She played good, I could do
nothing. I tried my best in the mo-
ment and she won those points.”
It was Kerber’s first loss after a
string of 14 singles victories in Aus-
tralia this month—four at the Hop-
man Cup in Perth, five to sweep
to the title at the Sydney Interna-
tional and five in the impressive
run to the last four in Melbourne.
Cilic joins elite group
MELBOURNE—Marin Cilic is in ex-
clusive company at the Australian
With his 6-2, 7-6 (4), 6-2 semi-
final win over 49th-ranked Kyle
Edmund, Cilic became only the
second man from outside the “Big
Four” to reach the final at sea-
son-opening major in a decade.
Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal,
Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray
have dominated the men’s finals
since 2009, with only 2014 cham-
pion Stan Wawrinka breaking the
quartet’s court occupation in the
The 29-year-old Cilic, the first
Croatian to make the final at Mel-
bourne Park, could face the found-
ing member of the “Big Four” in
the final on Sunday. That’s if de-
fending champion Federer can get
past Hyeon Chung on Friday. (AP)
