26 Jan 2015  Fireworks help celebrate Venus Williams' Australian Open run (Yahoo Sports)
Serena Williams of the U.S. celebrates a point won against Garbine Muguruza of Spain during their fourth round match at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. (AP Photo/Rob Griffith)Fireworks lit up the sky above Rod Laver Arena the moment Venus Williams completed her fourth-round win at the Australian Open on Monday night. Williams advanced to her first quarterfinal in a major since Wimbledon in 2010 and she'll be joined by her younger sister, Serena, in the final eight. As multi-colored pinwheels and other fireworks celebrating the Australia Day holiday cascaded from the sky, Venus took time on court to credit Serena for her support and inspiration. In 2011, Venus was diagnosed with the energy-sapping Sjogren's syndrome, a major reason for her absence from the late stages of big tournaments - until now.

Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic celebrates after defeating Rafael Nadal of Spain in their quarterfinal match at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015. (AP Photo/Rob Griffith)Rafael Nadal is out of the Australian Open, beaten 6-2, 6-0, 7-6 (5) in the quarterfinals by seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych on Tuesday. The third-seeded Nadal , a 14-time Grand Slam singles champion, said before the tournament began that his lack of match fitness due to injuries and illness in the last half of 2014 made him unlikely to win more than a few rounds at Melbourne Park. Berdych led 5-2 and finally ended the match on his fourth match point when Nadal netted a return of serve.
26 Jan 2015  Keys, 19, reaches first major quarterfinal - and wants more (Yahoo Sports)
Madison Keys of the U.S. serves to her compatriot Madison Brengle during their fourth round match at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. (AP Photo/Andy Brownbill)Madison Keys turns 20 next month and her mother, Christine, is already sending her teasing texts featuring grandma emojis. Love you.'' It's a good thing for Keys she's making the most of her last Grand Slam as a teenager, beating fellow American Madison Brengle 6-2, 6-4 in the battle of the Madisons at the Australian Open on Monday to reach the quarterfinals of a major for the first time. She may have been the younger player on the court - Brengle is five years older and was also playing for her first major quarterfinal - but Keys has looked increasingly comfortable as she's progressed deeper into the draw with her new coach, Lindsay Davenport, watching from the stands. The pressure has only increased with Serena and Venus Williams getting older and other young Americans such as Melanie Oudin and Sloane Stephens struggling to build on early successes and close the gap between the generations.
26 Jan 2015  Azarenka's fun-filled Australian Open comes to an end (Yahoo Sports)
Victoria Azarenka of Belarus leaves after her fourth round loss to Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia, Monday, Jan. 26, 2015. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue)Victoria Azarenka is packing her bags and leaving the Australian Open far earlier than years past, but the two-time former champion sure had fun while she was here. Unseeded after an injury-marred season, Azarenka had the toughest draw of any of the top female contenders at Melbourne Park, yet she moved through three rounds with ease, not dropping a set to Sloane Stephens, Caroline Wozniacki or Barbora Zahlavova Strycova. On Monday, though, her run came to an end against 2014 finalist, Dominika Cibulkova, in a match filled with extended rallies, momentum shifts and impressive shot-making. It was Azarenka's earliest exit from the Australian Open since 2011, but rather than be disappointed, she looked at the upside.
