“As we celebrate 100 years of women’s competition at what is now the Australian Open, I’m delighted to further showcase the women’s game by scheduling the semifinals in the prime time TV spot of Thursday night,” Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said. “We are incredibly fortunate in tennis to not only have great athletes in our sport, but tremendous personalities and role models.
