"Tiiai was a huge part of the game," Norman said of the saved points. "He had been controlling the points. From then on I played a great match." Kafelnikov said, "I'm already overjoyed that I'm in the semifinal," adding that he hoped he was wrong in earlier predicting that he would not keep his title. Next up for Hingis is No. 10 Conchita Martinez, who struggled 2 1/2 hours to beat No. 16 Elena Likhovtseva 6-3, 4-6, 9-7. "Hopefully she is going to be a little bit slower tomorrow, so I have to make her run," said Hingis, who has not lost to Martinez in their last seven matches. , . , .,.,,. Nor has she lost to Sanchez-Vicario in their last 13 meetings, despite constant efforts by the Spaniard to find new tactics. "I always was able to adjust to her game and just beat her," said Hingis, who hit 19 winners while Sanchez-Vicario had just six — and 24 unforced errors. Hingis has noted frequently that the tournament's Rebound Ace courts are the same type she has in her backyard in Florida — a type she considers suited to her game. The Australian Open "has always been the lucky one for me," the 19-year-old said. "It was my first one, and I could defend it.... I like three, but four will be even better."
