Nadal Dimitrov advance to Australian Open quarterfinals

Her responses to questions were short.

Vandeweghe was leading in her first set before a rain delay on Hisense Arena, but sickness and irritation caught up with her.

Fifteen-year-old Marta Kostyuk faces her fellow Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, the only seed left in a wide open quarter. "I thought it was a good match, I enjoyed it".

Going into Monday, Venus had played into the second weekend in seven straight Grand Slam tournaments.

With Stephens also departing, to China's Zhang Shuai, it was a calamitous day for the United States, in stark contrast to the last Grand Slam of 2017, when all three of them made the semis at the US Open.

"Definitely not physical, so".

How could she be?

Some say playing in a furnace takes tennis from a sport of skill to one purely of physical endurance, which is not what the sport is about.

"Being rusty at the beginning is something that you can expect", the 14th seed said about his comeback.

She remonstrated with chair umpire Renaud Lichtenstein but was quickly dismissed.

Dimitrov played in the afternoon sun and got the better of Andrey Rublev 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-4, gaining some revenge after the young, big-hitting Russian won their encounter at the US Open. Neither did her world ranking (No. 78). Ostapenko plays her third-round match on Friday.

Williams won't soon forget this first loss to Bencic.

What do Dennis Istomin, Tennys Sandgren, Marc Gicquel and Andreas Seppi have in common?

U.S. Open finalist and No. 11-seeded Kevin Anderson was the highest-ranked man eliminated, losing in five sets to Kyle Edmund - the only British man in the draw after five-time finalist Andy Murray withdrew.

"I knew before the match it would be a tough one". "I have a lot of faith and belief in what I am capable of".

That proved enough to take the first set and he needed just one break, this time achieved with a rasping backhand pass, to claim the decisive break at 3-3 in the second.

"I look forward to these matches".

There was continuous play as the tournament's extreme heat policy wasn't implemented. He was broken three times in the opening set and once in the second set, then didn't face another break point for the rest of the match.

"Our sport has become an industry, like most of the other global sports". Used to go to Dubai when it was 45.

Keys, the American Grand Slam champion-in-waiting, is prone to freezing up or simply failing to hit the requisite level of consistency against opponents who, at least on paper, are inferior.

"Last year is last year". The Wuhan event grew this year. But you know when you come down here that can happen.

Sharapova, back in the top 50 after a 15-month ban for taking the performance-enhancing substance meldonium in Australia in 2016, demonstrated all the shot-making that made her a five-time major winner.

It's been nearly 15 full years since any American man won any Grand Slam singles title, so let's keep the focus on the women for the moment. He has looked dazzling for stretches, like the player who is a six-time champ here.

Thereafter, she held her own serve and levelled the set 2-2.

"Really tough conditions, brutal, especially for the first hour and a half".

After he sealed the deal, the six-time Australian Open champion Djokovic dropped to his knees to and showed his appreciation for the Rod Laver Arena center court that has been so good to him. The game has, indeed, changed.

"It's just amazing how the time is flying", said Kerber, who struggled for form through a difficult 2017 season. "Head to toe so player".
