Serena, Venus could meet in semis

Serena and Venus Williams could meet in the semifinals of the Australian Open and Serena Williams could meet former champion Amelie Mauresmo in the fourth round at this year's opening Grand Slam.
No. 2 Serena Williams, who won this tournament in 2003, 2005 and 2007, plays wild card Yuan Meng of China in the first round following Friday's draw at Melbourne Park. Sixth-seeded Venus Williams plays Angelique Kerber of Germany.
Top-seeded Jelena Jankovic plays Yvonne Meusburger of Austria in the first round. In the semifinals, Jankovic could face the winner of a quarterfinal between third-seeded Dinara Safina of Russia and fifth-seeded Ana Ivanovic of Serbia, last year's losing finalist to Maria Sharapova.
Sharapova is not playing the Australian Open due a lack of fitness following a shoulder injury.
