Djokovic stunned officials and players after he hijacked a players meeting in Melbourne, Austraklia, to demand a dramatic pay rise, urging players to form their own union.

"What happened is that we players just wanted to talk about certain topics - I don't think there is anything unhealthy about that". "I saw that some of you have written a story that has been a little bit exaggerated".

"It's been constantly playing, practice how hopefully I can play during the Australian Open".

Top seed Simona Halep nearly lost the first set to teenage wild card Destanee Aiava and then suffered a nasty injury before recovering to win 7-6 (5) 6-1 in the first round of the Australian Open. But she made a meal of it against local hope Destanee Aiava.

With the help of coaches Andre Agassi and Radek Stepanek, the 30-year-old has remodeled his services action which shortens the back swing in order to protect the elbow and yes, it held up perfectly.

Sharapova, still working her way back from a 15-month ban for taking the performance-enhancing substance meldonium in Australia in 2016, showed glimpses of the tennis that made her a five-time major victor.

In her first match in Melbourne since failing a drugs test at the 2016 event, Maria Sharapova was victorious against Tatjana Maria 6-1, 6-4 on the Margaret Court Arena.

Thailand at Canada meeting to tighten N.Korea net
Kim Jong Un simply does not understand the concept of negotiating, it is not within his vocabulary. As Charles Jenkins pointed out, there is no good way to deal with the North Koreans.

"I cherish these moments". Unfortunately this injury has been with me for a while and it escalated a year ago around Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

A story in the Daily Mail claimed the former world number one, who is the leader of the ATP's player council, stood up and addressed the meeting with a lawyer, with subjects including setting up a separate players' union and pushing for more prize money.

In the third set, Bautista, who had just won the Auckland tournament earlier in January against Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro, could not sustain the advantage he initially achieved and lost to Verdasco.

Sloane Stephens, Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe were all eliminated on Monday.

The fourth seed and highly fancied tyro Alexander Zverev looms as a possible fourth round match-up, with three-times grand slam champion Stan Wawrinka a potential quarter-final opponent. "I love this country - I enjoy my stay, play my best tennis".

The struggling Stephens put in an error-strewn performance on an overcast and windy Melbourne day and has now not won in eight matches.

Roger Federer has continued the longest first-round winning streak in tennis, easing past Slovenian Aljaz Bedene to make it 19 successive tournament-opening wins at the Australian Open.
