Carter's final prediction
Arnaud Clement beats Sebastien Grosjean in the semis
Clement aims to upset Agassi's plans
BBC Sport's tennis correspondent Iain Carter looks ahead to the men's Australian Open final.

Andre Agassi (US) v Arnaud Clement (FRA)

Clement has beaten Agassi on the last two occasions that they have clashed.

The Frenchman's most recent victory came in the US Open tournament in 2000.

However, their overall head-to-head record stands at two wins apiece.

And Agassi looks sure to be a firm favourite to clinch his third Open.

The American's form in Melbourne over the last two weeks has been excellent.

Couple that with the arduous path Clement has had to tread to the final, and Agassi looks the more likely victor.

Prediction: Agassi to win in four sets
