Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams to clash in Australian Open final

ASTANA-MELBOURNE. KAZINFORM - The semifinals of the 2015 Australian Open in Melbourne have brought no surprises. Both Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams booked their final spots by beating Ekaterina Makarova and Madison Keys respectively.

World №1 Williams outclassed the 19-year-old Madison Keys in straight sets 7:6, 6:2. Although Keys hit 12 aces and 27 winners, that was not enough to sneak into the AO final. Sharapova confidently edged out Makarova in the all-Russian semifinal 6:3, 6:2 as well. It is worth mentioning that Williams leads the head-to-head record 16:2 against Sharapova and she has not lost to the Russian since 2004 (!). Source:
