Williams sisters, Federer reach finals 'Down Under'

MELBOURNE, Australia—It was one, two, and three for the ages as Venus and Serena Williams set up another all-sisters Australian Open final while Roger Federer ensured he'll contend for another Grand Slam title.

They're calling it “Throwback Thursday” at Melbourne Park: three players who can combine for 46 Grand Slam titles and 106 years in age advanced to the finals.

Federer reaches milestone

MELBOURNE, Australia—Roger Federer already was a long way clear at the top of the list of men with the most wins in Grand Slam singles matches, so becoming the first to 300 wasn’t a major distraction.

He reached the milestone at Rod Laver Arena earlier today when he moved into the fourth round of the Australian Open with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory over Grigor Dimitrov.
