2012 Australian Open Update

Serena Williams got her 500th career victory. Her very first victory was in 1997, fifteen years ago. She’s catching up to Venus, her older sister, who has 598 career wins.

Here’s our Down Under Wrap Up so far…

Defending champ Novak Djokovic won another round.

Sharapova is continuing to dominate. And, former world number one, Ana Ivanovic of Serbia, is advancing as well.

Andy Roddick had to retire due to a hamstring tendon injury. He was supposed to play mixed double with Serena Williams, his hamstring injury means that is no longer an option. The two were planning on playing together to prepare for this summer’s London Olympics.

As we enter the third round, today promises to be a huge one! Nadal, Federer, Kim Clijsters and Caroline Wozniacki are all playing separate matches today.
