Aus Open 2018: Matches to look out for on day six

Aus Open 2018: Matches to look out for on day six

"This court is special for me and I was trying to enjoy every point", Kerber said of Rod Laver Arena, where she beat Serena Williams in the 2016 final.

The third-round match became a sight to see when the two champions clashed at the Rod Laver Arena. It's a lot of things that take time.

"I don't want to take anything away from her and the way she played". "I think I deserve to smile out there after that victory".

"I'm nearly dead", Halep told the crowd in her on-court interview at Rod Laver Arena. I had a lot in the last few weeks.

"It feels fantastic. I was ready to leave on Monday and then they told me I'm in, so I was obviously excited", Pera said.

Former No. 1 Kerber has sizzled to begin the season after a hard 2017 while the Russian is a five-time grand slam victor who - even if she is seeking top form after returning from a drug suspension a year ago - remains one of tennis' top competitors. She had lost their only previous meeting, nearly five years ago, at Indian Wells 6-2, 6-0, and she had already won two three-setters this week, while Halep had looked comfortable without dropping a set.

"I did my job in two sets against someone that's been troubling in the past for me", Sharapova said.

Michael Carrick expected to retire at end of season, says José Mourinho
Manchester United have not been able to win the Premier League title since the retirement of Alex Ferguson. ESPN sources have also stated that Man United are set to extend Jose's stay at the club.

Halep will play the victor of Saturday's later match between local hope Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka.

Madison Keys of the United States defeated Ana Bogdan of Romania 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the fourth round of the Australian Open. I was really happy we have 2018 and not 2017.

Sharapova improved as the match progressed but Kerber was clinical when break-point opportunities came her way, with both chances being taken in the second to wrap up victory in just 64 minutes.

Sharapova found respite by recovering a break early in the second but the 21st seed broke again for 5-3 and served it out for a 12th successive win, including the Hopman Cup.

The 20-year-old Zverev has five titles on the elite tour, but his fourth-round exit at Wimbledon last year remains his best run at a major. "This is the matches I'm looking forward to have, especially at the beginning of the year".

Such clutch play is completely unsustainable - she even won the Sydney final against Ash Barty despite both players having break points in the same number of return games - and Sharapova's data on return shows she's underperformed for converting break points by a similar figure this year so far.

Players turning in upsets in the heat were Taipei's Su-Wei Hsieh stunning No. 3 Garbine Muguruza 7-6 (1), 6-4, unheralded American Bernarda Pera defeating No. 9 Johanna Konta 6-4, 7-5, Sharapova ousting No. 14 Anastasija Sevastova 6-1, 7-6 (4), Japan's Naomi Osaka beating No. 16 Elena Vesnina 7-6 (4), 6-2, and Belarus' Aliaksandra Sasnovich topping No. 28 Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 6-3, 6-1.
