We have an all Slav semi-final for Australia. Vote here on who you want to see take it home. I'm posting pictures to help you with your choice. This may be the best looking major semi-final ever:

Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova:

Bet the house on Maria.

I must reiterate. This is not who you think will win but who you would like to see win. For instance, do you want more media coverage and advertising featuring Miss Sharapova (never a bad prospect). Or would you like to see what the sponsors and media could do with a young but relatively little known stunner like Ivanovic?

She really had a time there when she was struggling with health and lots of issues. It's good that she has bounced back and is now in good form. She's one of the classier players on the tour.

jtk is willing to bet that she is not a Sharapova fan in the way that many of us around here are Sharapova fans. And if she is... well, jtk will not allow his imagination to drift into inappropriate territory, but suffice it to say, such a situation would present many exciting opportunities. ;)

Bro, you gotta realize that these women are athletes. Most of the world's most beautiful women would not look fantastic if you zoomed in on their faces, without makeup, as they were hustling around a breathless, humid Australian tennis court.

You've got some surprises coming when you get married. Even the girls that go for the "natural, fresh-faced look" put a lot of effort into making that look work on a day to day basis.

0-6, 6-3, 6-4. Ivanovic dropped the first 8. Hantuchova looked like she was just going to mop the floor with Ivanovic, but then really choked it away. Ivanovic really didn't play that great tennis.

Still, Hantuchova had a great tournament and is back near the top. It's an incredible accomplishment considering what she has battled back from.

Bro,

No, I wont have any surprises. The woman I marry will be beautiful everytime I look at her....makeup or not. I am sorry you dont feel that way about your wife.

Anyways...my point was how clear HD is. Sharapova is gorgeous and HD did her no justice.

Bro, the women I married is beautiful, but don't fill yourself up with insanely romantic expectations.

I know I don't look fantastic all the time. My wife tells me, too....when I need a shave, when I'm bleary eyed, when my clothes look like crap. She thinks I'm a stud, but after three days of laying on the sofa with a cold, I know and she knows that I am not my best.

Same goes with her. When she's had a cold, when she comes back red-faced and sweaty with her hair mussed up from a run...I know she's beautiful, but if you zoomed in on her face with an HD camera and broadcast her live to the world , the rest of the world might not recognize how insanely gorgeous she really is.

Hate to rain on everyone's parade here. But the French Open Final a few years ago between Russians, Miss Dementieva and Miss Myskina goes down as the best looking final in history. Put Sharapova alongside those 2 and she would no doubt be the ugly one.

BTW, Federer served for the 1st set and got broken. Men's semi back on serve in the 1st

Hantuchova went through a really tough time a few years before now. She advanced to the Semi round in Australia and looked like she was going to crush Ivanovic before choking. Still, it was a great run and she's looking to be a force again.

She's recovered very nicely from some of the issues that plagued her a while back. Here's a link to some pictures of her in action in Australia and all will agree that she's looking much better.
