Sharapova v Kerber, Federer v Gasquet Saturday At Australian Open

Wozniacki battles back from the brink Sharapova v Kerber, Federer v Gasquet Saturday At Australian Open
Lora Ball | 20 January, 2018, 08:17

Third seed Garbine Muguruza and 2014 victor Stan Wawrinka both wilted and were knocked out.

Federer was president of the ATP player council, the same position Djokovic now holds, in 2012 when there was talk of a boycott if the major tournaments did not take action.

Two of them will meet in the third round. Kerber, however, is coming off of a title win at the Sydney International.

“Happy to be playing tennis again like 2016, ” said Kerber, who planned an ice bath before a relaxed dinner out in Melbourne to mark the occasion.

Djokovic faces Gael Monfils in the second round on Thursday and Federer suspects the classy Frenchman will pose a huge threat to the six-time champion.

Djokovic rattled through the third set and it looked as though Monfils would quit, but to his credit, he recovered his senses to offer some stern resistance in the fourth.

Wild-card entry Julien Benneteau has had an upset 1-6, 7-6 (5), 6-1, 7-6 (4) victory over seventh-seeded David Goffin, winning the last five points in the tiebreaker in a third-round match.

"It was obvious we both suffered on the court today", Djokovic said. “Really tough conditions — brutal.”.

The forecast was for temperatures approaching 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), and delays were likely on side courts if the tournament invokes its Extreme Heat Policy.

Against an opponent who had thwarted the Russian's Grand Slam comeback in the last 16 of the US Open previous year, Sharapova sped through a scintillating first set in 23 power-packed minutes. I did my job in two sets against someone that's been troubling in the past for me.

Angelique Kerber won the Australian Open title in 2016. In Melbourne, all matches will be played on Saturday.

Temperatures at the Australian Open have been well above 100 degrees Farenheit during some matches.

'I think what's good is that all the players are talking to one another, ' he said. Serving for the match, Dominic opened with a forehand victor but made a subsequent forehand error. She needed a medical time out in the first set, and accidently hit a ball into a line judge in frustration.

Eighth seed Garcia also stayed in the title hunt, but she found it hard going against Czech teen Marketa Vondrousova who pushed her to three gruelling sets.

As for how far she can go in the tournament, she said: "I feel like I'm building". “I was checking the tickets to fly back. I forgot to ask him if that was his real hair or a wig.

Pera will next play No. 20 Barbora Strycova.

Karolina Pliskova, the women's sixth seed and one of the favorites to win, will be taking on No. 29 Lucie Safarova. The Argentine and the Russian met for the first time in Auckland two weeks ago, and Delpo emerged a 7-6 (4), 6-3 victor.

The 30-year-old Serb will now play Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the third round.
