MELBOURNE---Stanislas Wawrinka backed up
his upset of four-time champion Novak Djokovic
by reaching his first Grand Slam final with a 6-3,
7-6 (1), 6-7 (3), 7-6 (4) win over Tomas Berdych
in the Australian Open semifinals yesterday.
Wawrinka ended a 14-match losing streak against
Djokovic with a dramatic five-set, four-hour win in
the quarterfinals, then followed that with a dominating
performance against Berdych, the 2010 Wimbledon
The eighth-seeded Wawrinka will meet the winner
of today s semifinal showdown between Rafael Nadal
and Roger Federer, the 33rd installment of their rivalry
and the first at a Grand Slam since Nadal knocked
Federer out of the Australian Open at the same stage
Whoever he plays, Wawrinka will go into the final
as an underdog. He has never beaten Nadal in 12
meetings, and has lost all but one of his 14 matches
against his countryman, Federer.
Wawrinka has long been in Federer s shadow as
Switzerland s less-heralded No. 2, but he s been slowly
gaining confidence in his game since narrowly losing
a heartbreaking marathon match to Djokovic in Mel-
bourne last year.
In April, he hired a new coach---Magnus Norman,
a former Swedish player once ranked as high as No.
2. Since then, he s risen to a career-high No. 8 in
the rankings and reached his first Grand Slam semifinal
at the US Open.
Now he s taken the next step into the final of a
major, where he could meet his good friend and
sometime doubles partner, Federer.
Federer, who has reached his 11th consecutive semi-
final at the Australian Open, said he d love to see an
all-Swiss final at Melbourne Park.
The women s side also has a first-time Grand Slam
finalist after Slovakia s Dominika Cibulkova beat
Agnieszka Radwanska in a 6-1, 6-2 rout in the semi-
finals earlier Thursday.
She ll meet Chinese No. 4-seeded Li Na, who
reached her third final in four years at Melbourne
Park with a 6-2, 6-4 win over 19-year-old Canadian
In a women s tournament full of results, Cibulkova s
run has been the most dramatic. The diminutive Slo-
vakian has won all but one of her matches in straight
sets and only needed 70 minutes to win her first
Grand Slam semifinal. Cibulkova also took out No.
3-seeded Maria Sharapova in the fourth round.
Li, the 2011 French Open champion, was the only
major winner remaining in the semis after Serena
Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Sharapova all fell.
After saving a match point in the third round against
Lucie Safarova, she s the favourite to finally win an
Australian title. (AP)
ADELAIDE---Former Tour de France
champion Cadel Evans seized the
overall lead in the Tour Down Under
by winning yesterday s third stage
with a daring break on a corkscrew
climb and descent.
Evans broke away near the end of
the 145-kilometre (90-mile) stage from
Norwood to Campbelltown, winning
by 14 seconds from a group of 11 riders
which included Australian compatriot
Simon Gerrans and Italy s Diego Ulissi
who had started the day first and sec-
ond on general classification.
With a 10 second time bonus for his
stage win, Evans surged into the overall
lead, 12 seconds ahead of Gerrans and
15 seconds ahead of Ulissi in third place.
The demanding third stage of the
six-stage tour was always going to be
decided at the precipitous corkscrew
10 kilometres (6.3 miles) from the finish
line, with gradients reaching 15 degrees
on the hairpin bends.
Evans, the 2011 Tour de France win-
ner, attacked at the right moment,
breaking away with Richie Porte and,
showing his nerve and superior bike-
handling skill on the descent, went
clear of Porte and Gerrans to claim the
stage victory and tour lead.
Australian Nathan Haas emerged to
finish second on the stage and Ulissi
