Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza out of Australian Open

Russia's Maria Sharapova celebrates win over Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova in their second round match at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne Australia Thursday Jan. 18 2018

WOMEN, 2ND RD Bernarda Pera (USA) bt Johanna Konta (Gbr) 6-4 7-5, Karolina Pliskova (Cze) bt Beatriz Haddad Maia (Bra) 6-1 6-1, Naomi Osaka (Jpn) bt Elena Vesnina (Rus) 7-6 (7-4) 6-2, Madison Keys (USA) bt Ekaterina Alexandrova (Rus) 6-0 6-1.

"So, you know, I feel like I transported myself into the TV this year and I'm finding myself on Rod Laver Arena competing".

Top-seeded Chan Yung-jan (詹詠然, who now uses her English name Latisha Chan on tour) and her new partner this year, Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic, rolled over Han Xinyun and Liang Chen of China 6-3, 6-0 in their opener.

Muguruza, who withdrew from the Sydney International last week, was succumbing to both the Melbourne heat and her fearless opponent in the second set.

Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza became the biggest casualty of the Australian Open so far when she was upset by Hsieh Su-wei in the second round.

Kerber says she is looking forward to the Sharapova encounter. "I maybe can handle it better than other girls", mentioned Hsieh during her post-match press conference. I try to practise all the stuff.

Muguruza had battled back from 5-2 down in the opening set but 32-year-old Hsieh, who plays double-handed on both sides, pulled out all the stops to take the tiebreak 7-1.

"I do a lot of different training".

Kerber celebrated her 30th birthday yesterday with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Donna Vekic while Sharapova, also a former world No. 1, defeated Anastasija Sevastova 6-1, 7-6 (7-4).

Still aiming for a first major, top-ranked Simona Halep, a two-time French Open finalist, held off 2014 Wimbledon finalist Eugenie Bouchard 6-2, 6-2 in a night match.

Sharapova, who missed last year's Australian Open while serving a 15-month ban for a failed doping test, was happy to beat the player who'd ended her run at the U.S. Open last year.

Hsieh will face Poland's 26th seed Agnieszka Radwanska for a place in the fourth round of a grand slam singles for only the second time, having reached that stage 10 years ago here. Was pretty hot. I thought I was very good.

"I look forward to these matches", 2008 victor Sharapova, ranked 48th after returning from a 15-month ban last April, said. Closing out the win is always the most hard part of the match, and it clearly reflected on the scoreboard when Muguruza threatened to mount the incredible comeback especially after lessening the deficit to just one game, fending off a match point in the process.
