The 2008 Australian Open has entered it's quarter final stage and one of the highlights of the tournament so far is Tuesday's showcase match between World Number one and top seed Justine Henin and fifth seed Maria Sharapova.

Henin has played Russian beauty Maria Sharapova a total of eight times and holds the edge, winning six of those matches.

The seven time Grand Slam champion sailed into the quarters with a 6-2, 6-2 fourth-round victory over Taiwan's Hsieh Su-wei on Sunday.

While fifth seed Sharapova, runner-up at the Australian Open last year too seems to be in brilliant form, pummeling 11th-seeded fellow Russian Elena Dementieva for the loss of just two games in the fourth round.
