World #1 Roger Federer got knocked off by Marat Safin last night (actually later tonight, but it already happened in Australia!) in a barn-burner five-set struggle. This ought to help Andy Roddick's chances to win his second major. But first Roddick needs to get by Lleyton Hewitt. The American should be slightly favored only because he's spent literally half the time Hewitt has on court in the earlier rounds. Hard to see Safin beating either Roddick or Hewitt, but the extra day's rest could be helpful after the marathon against Federer.

It's great to see the world's four best players in the semis of a Grand Slam event! I hope the second semifinal is as good as the first one was.
