More specifically, two resilient, legendary players who've long carried the torch for United States tennis - Serena and Venus Williams.
"This is probably the moment of our careers so far".
"I think, credit to her, she played an nearly ideal first set. Today I felt I can do this, it is such a great opportunity for me".
"I have a lot to give to the game". Serena and Venus, both of whom wear Nike Shoes (Venus wears her own line of tennis clothing), have a combined 29 Grand Slam titles between the two of them.
Federer's semifinal opponent will be Stan Wawrinka, who had his major breakthrough in Australia in 2014.
Nineteen years after making her Australian Open debut, the 36-year-old cashed in on the experience of 73 grand slams to set up a meeting with another 25-year-old in fellow American Coco Vandeweghe.
But the sisters are showing that quality precedes age.
For the 28th time in history - ninth in a Grand Slam final - sisters Venus and Serena Williams will play each other for a title, ensuring the trophy will wind up in their Palm Beach Gardens home. Reaching the Wimbledon semi-final on grass - her favourite surface - last summer did not come so out of the blue, but on hard courts she has been less of a factor.
Pavlyuchenkova, playing her fourth major quarter-final, let her chances slip in a match with few extended rallies on Rod Laver Arena.
The Williams sisters have had difficulties, too.
"To play an unbelievable player, future Hall of Famer, Venus, to be on the court with her, I've only experienced it one time before".
US House of Representatives begins repealing Obamacare
The report estimated that 21-year-olds would see annual premiums drop by $700, but 64-year-olds would see theirs rise by $2,100. Before the ACA, 105 million Americans, a lot of them with employer coverage, had a lifetime limit on their insurance policy.
Serena reaching the final should be no surprise; the 35-year-old now is the No. 2-ranked singles player in the world and will be seeking her 23rd Grand Slam title. She also learned in 2011 she had the immune system disorder called Sjogren's syndrome.
"When she got into the quarterfinals she was happy, when she got to the semis she was happier", Venus' coach, David Witt, told CNN. The one sure outcome when they meet this week will be an American in the final at Melbourne Park.
Two double faults handed Williams a decisive double break in the second set and the seven-time grand Slam champion broke again at the start of the third.
Serving for the first set, Vandeweghe faced her first break point of the set, but saved it with an ace.
Vandeweghe had taken out titleholder and world No.1 Angelique Kerber, French Open champion Garbiñe Muguruza, former Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard and 2015 US Open runner-up Roberta Vinci during her march to the semi-finals.
The match ended on Vandeweghe's serve, with a exhausted Muguruza hitting a forehand low into the net.
"Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more?" she asked.
The 35-year-old Federer, meanwhile, is back from a six-month injury layoff because of left knee surgery.
And her uproarious turn in the 1996 comedy Flirting with Disaster provided that her comic timing was as sharp and biting as ever. Lena Dunham and her fellow Girls showrunner Jenni Konner both released statements about Moore's impact.
Trump tweeted that he began drafting the speech three weeks ago. "You're not forgotten any more", he said . Ten of thousands of people are expected to protest Trump's inauguration on Friday in Washington, D.C .
Serena Williams lost her No. 1 ranking to Angelique Kerber when she fell in the semifinals of the US Open to Karolina Pliskova. It is all a far cry from events past year , when Murray was torn between his title attempt and what was happening back home.
It is interesting to note that reports are now linking City with moves for Spurs' full-backs Walker and Rose. "They are brilliant. Since that first league meeting eight years ago, Guardiola has won the lot, over and over and over again. "Now I don't know".
He's shooting 49 percent from the field in the final frame and a sensational 45 percent from 3-point range. "They're pretty cool. One would have to assume that Boston will use all of those players, and likely more, against Anthony yet again tonight.
Guard David DeCastro said the team needs to be better and running back Le'Veon Bell said they'll need "better than our A-game". He had more touchdowns than interceptions in just one of the games, last year's wild-card victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
And yet, he is the probably the best quarterback New England have faced since their home defeat to Seattle in week 10. That trend continued Sunday evening with an offensive onslaught from Tom Brady and the Patriots offense.
When answering to the question, she said that it is an interesting question but nothing in this life is free anymore. Oversight is lax and DeVos herself has nevertheless fought legislation to stop failing charters from expanding.
She wore pink - the color associated with tomorrow's Women's March on Washington to protest Trump - underneath her white coat. For instance, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton also wore Ralph Lauren on Inauguration Day, and was highly visible.
If I receive a refund, where will it be deposited? The language was stilted and off-kilter, which can be a warning sign. That's three extra days to file your taxes, so make them count! A social security card for everybody on the tax return.
The march has also drawn thousands of women from different backgrounds who simply hope to show their solidarity against Trump. There were so many participants, in fact, organizers were unable to march the intended route to the White House as planned.
Democrats need to become more comfortable stretching the limits of their power and less inclined toward unrequited bipartisanship. But Republicans have yet to agree on a replacement bill, and existing Republican plans - like one drafted by Rep.
Nadal advances to set up showdown with Raonic
Czech Republic's Karolína Plíšková beat home favourite Daria Gavrilova 6-3, 6-3 to set up a tie with Mirjana Lučić-Baroni. The day sessions concludes with 11th seed David Goffin taking on 15th seed Grigor Dimitrov .
The Atlanta Falcons Are Mighty Super
New England Patriots wide receiver Chris Hogan runs to the end zone. "They are the champions of the AFC and rightfully so". But it when it comes to Trump's biggest faults - racism, bigotry and misogyny - you don't get to pick and choose.
AFC Championship Game: Steelers vs. Patriots
History aside, Brady said he is expecting to get the best from Pittsburgh, which started the season 4-5 but has won its last nine. By the end of the play, seven Steelers were trying to gang tackle Blount, who finally went down at the 1-yard line .
Donald Trump arrives in Washington to lay claim to White House
For such a divisive figure, Donald Trump managed to unify hundreds of thousands of Americans at the Women's March on Washington. Asked whether she thought the new president would hear the message of the march, she replied: "I don't care what he's hearing".
Three killed as auto smashes into pedestrians in Melbourne

For the year as a whole, China's reserves fell $320-billion to $3.01 trillion, on top of a record drop of $513-billion in 2015. Since then, Sinche noted, "once that "strong dollar" policy was put in place, it's been very hard to undo it.
Betsy DeVos Is a Threat to America's Children
She subscribes to one big idea: All children, regardless of zip code, have a right to a quality education. The Trump-DeVos agenda is created to undermine that mission and harm our students and public schools.
