Hot Maria Sharapova shows she's a serious title contender

Croatia's Hot Maria Sharapova shows she's a serious title contender

The 12-time grand slam victor began to also feel the heat during the fourth set, appearing to complain to his players' box with coaches Andre Agassi and Radep Stepanek watching on.

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

Maria Sharapova revelled in the joy of being back, following her 80-minutte 6-1, 7-6 (7-4) second-round win over Anastasija Sevastova.

"I cherish these moments".

"I didn't expect to play this kind of match, I prefer to watch on TV", joked the 29-year-old, a twice quarter-finalist in Melbourne, during his post-match interview on court. "And then I was really excited to start the new season".

The second seed, of course, went on to win the most remarkable of his 19 grand slam titles and began the defence of his crown with a comfortable 6-3 6-4 6-3 victory over Aljaz Bedene, who is representing Slovenia again after almost three years as a British player.

"I don't want to take anything away from her and the way she played. Also, if you saw the crowds, nobody was there watching under the sun".

American woes continued with Madison Brengle sent packing by British ninth seed Johanna Konta. The biggest upsets of the day were Roberto Bautista Agut's loss to Fernando Verdasco for the men and Petra Kvitova's loss to Andrea Petkovic.

Kerber and Sharapova were the only two former champions left in the women's draw this year and gave the feel of a showpiece final rather than a third-round clash.

Hyeon Chung ensured the subsequent match on Rod Laver Arena went the distance, too, as he took out another Zverev.

Djokovic's greater consistency yielded a second break when Monfils hit a wild backhand, but the Serb 14th seed was broken a third time. "At times we were both just trying to get a little bit of extra breath, a few seconds more, so we could recover".

For a while Swiss compatriots Federer and Wawrinka were playing on adjoining courts at the same time, but their fitness and results were contrasting. Fellow injury-plagued star Stan Wawrinka also makes his comeback from injury Tuesday.

"Something is going on with Australia and me", said Kerber, who won the Sydney International last week for her first title since the 2016 US Open.

It was another step forward for the Serbian former world number one, who had been out of action for six months with elbow trouble.

The tall tattooed Czech, who made the quarter-final in Australia a year ago, was largely untroubled and is looking for a deep run at the tournament. "I think I have a small heat stroke for 40 minutes", Monfils said.

With the temperatures touching an energy-sapping 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) and ice-towels in use, the six-time champion came through a tough four-setter against Gael Monfils.

Germany's Andrea Petkovic said that heat and fatigue had sapped her mental game, after she was knocked out by the US' Lauren Davis following a marathon first match and a doubles.
