Predicted Winners in BOLD
ROD LAVER ARENA (11 a.m. start)
 Karolina Pliskova (CZE) vs Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (CRO) – Pliskova has now won 10 of her previous 11 matches at majors. Her serve should help her to dictate play. ML-B’s comeback has been fueled by wins Halep and now Radwanska. Pliskova is not that style of player. This means Lucic-Baroni will have to play great defense tennis rather than clean offense to win. I don’t see that happening. Still, Kucic-Baroni being 2 sets away from her first major semifinal since Wimbledon 1999 is a great story.
 Serena Williams (USA) vs  Johanna Konta (GBR) – Serena Williams has played great tennis through 4 rounds. Konta has a chance. I just don’t think Konta has much of a chance. Serena Williams is likely to book another major semifinal showdown with Pliskova.
