Eugenie Bouchard eradicated from Australian Open

Eugenie Bouchard eradicated from Australian Open”

The three hours 45 minutes battle equalled the longest ever match at the Australian Open - the 1999 quarter-final clash between Chanda Rubin and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario.

The 24-year-old American, forced to take an emergency medical time-out to treat a toenail injury later in the final set, saved 15 break points during the absorbing match but began to lose her ease of mobility at 13-13, before Halep served out at the fourth time of asking.

"I think it was also a very tough second round, for me the toughest I could get". "I never played the third set so long, so I'm really happy I could stay and win it".

"But I think after this I'm just going to really focus on all that I did well and just how well I handled myself at this tournament and just how well I played".

"I was just trying to enjoy every point", said Kerber after ousting Sharapova in only her second Grand Slam tournament back since serving a 15-month doping ban.

"I just kept believing that it's not over, even if she's leading a little bit more".

"But it was nice to win this match, to be on this court and to be in the fourth round of this tournament". She dropped not a match at the Hopman Cup in Perth, and went on to win the Sydney title over some considerable opposition. Solid groundstrokes saw her claim a break point chance, but a fortunate net cord victor saved Halep from the brink and got her onto the scoreboard.

Turmoil in Supreme Court: Attorney General hints out on early resolution
Dave was elected as president of Supreme Court bar association later that year. "Judiciary must remain the pillar of democracy". The press meet was held by the seniormost judges of the SC only to show to the people the trust imposed on the judiciary.

On a Saturday menu boasting Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and Novak Djokovic, the fans who packed into Rod Laver Arena for the opening match of the day witnessed the best match of the Australian Open so far, men or women, as Simona Halep and Lauren Davis ran side to side, forward and back, up and down until, mercifully, one of them fell. "Especially when the score is like that and three-and-a-half hours into the match".

Davis was broken in the third game, throwing in an unfortunate double-fault on break point.

-Alexander "Sascha" Zverev says he's lost the crucial moments in his last three Grand Slams defeats. Keys has lost three times to players ranked outside Top 100 at majors: No.290 Martic (2017 Roland Garros), No.133 S.Zhang (2016 Australian Open) and No.145 Krunic (2014 US Open). Both players missed break point opportunities later on, ensuring that the sole break was crucial for Halep.

French eighth seed Caroline Garcia came through in three sets 6-3 5-7 6-2 against Belarus' Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

"I'm here because I'm motivated to get better at my craft".

On Rod Laver arena, it was world No1 Simona Halep, eager to keep her hands on that top spot, and she would fight like a terrier to do so against Lauren Davis, one of the few women significantly shorter than the 5ft6in Halep.

Despite seeing an early break lead retrieved by her Russian opponent Kerber recovered to secure a second break of serve in the set before closing out the match in assured fashion to reach the last 16 where she will meet either Hsieh Su-Wei or Agnieszka Radwanska.
