Roger Federer defeated compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka, whereas Rafa Nadal beat Grigor Dimitrov to reach the first men’s singles Grand Slam final of the year.

Venus Williams, in turn, overcame Coco Vandeweghe, whereas sister Serena dispatched Mirjana Lui-Baroni in straight sets to set up a familiar matchup.
