This Verdasco fella is really good,he deservedly beat Murray and has a great 1st serve.Nonetheless I still expect a Federer-Nadal final,and that final is a toss-up.I see Dementieva or Serena winning the women's,having decided who I think will win yet.

Nadal Wins Longest Australian Open Match, Meets Federer in Final

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Top-ranked Rafael Nadal beat fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the longest match in Australian Open history to advance to the final against Roger Federer.

Nadal won 6-7 (4-7), 6-4, 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (1-7), 6-4 against the 14th seed in a match lasting five hours, 14 minutes to reach his first final at Melbourne Park and his seventh against Federer at a Grand Slam tennis tournament.

Federer is bidding for a record-tying 14th major title after losing his past four matches -- all finals -- to Nadal, including at Wimbledon and the French Open last year. Nadal is seeking a sixth Grand Slam title and his first away from the grass courts of Wimbledon and clay of Roland Garros.

The women's final was a joke-Safina was completely outclassed.

Serena won in less than an hour.
And Nadal's semi-final was 5hrs 15mins.
Whats that about?
