one semi final today - what kind of schedule is that

We all know this but can't help myself.

Yesterday two women's semi final and today should be men's but weird tradition of AO. any reasonable answer why they split men's semi final

I think it's idiotic. There is zero reason that the semifinals should be played on different days. Federer is eating popcorn with his feet up. Nadal still has over 8 hours before he plays.
I would hope Federer isn't eating popcorn, as that is unlikely to be ideal preparation for his first AO final in 7 years ;)
This schedule is something they should have a look at though. Of course one half of the draw plays first, but Wimbledon and RG equalise things out by the QF stage itself, whereas the AO carries on this staggered play schedule until the SFs and thus distorts the rest times for each finalist

For WTA, both semifinals are played on the same day (at least that was the case this year, can't remember the past), and both ladies have the same number of days to rest for the final. Wouldn't be bad if same was applied for ATP.

However both Serena and Lucic-Baroni had not even a full day of rest before their semi-final clash.

Ladies match is B03 and mens Bo5. Anyways, it has been the same way for so many years over. Players, and their fans, should skip AO if they don't like this :D
