Angelique Kerber thrashes Maria Sharapova at Australian Open

  • Gael Monfils 'Djokovic is Djokovic a champion'

That left only Sharapova, Kerber and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko as Grand Slam winners in the women's draw.

Former Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber fought back tears of happiness after disposing of Maria Sharapova in straight sets on Saturday night.

Australia's hope of seeing a homegrown Grand Slam champion now rests exclusively on the temperamental shoulders of Nick Kyrgios after women's contender Ashleigh Barty was sent packing by Naomi Osaka. As well, it was Federer's 90th match win at Melbourne Park.

And was no longer being in her twenties a problem?

The five-time Grand Slam champion is set to play against Kerber, who won the Australian Open title in 2016.

"Of course is quite a big match". "I mean, I'm feeling the same like yesterday".

Strycova beat Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena 6-3 6-4 in her second-round match.

The British government announced the following month that one of the hostages was killed, but the three others were freed. This was even as it said two of the Kidnappers have been arrested and now helping the police in its investigation.

"I don't want to take anything away from Angelique and the way she played".

The crafty Latvian had knocked Sharapova out of the fourth round at Flushing Meadows a year ago during the Russian's return to grand slam action after a 15-month doping ban. "This is fantastic for me to be back in the fourth round after 10 years".

"She has played very well in the last two games here".

"I'm looking forward to playing against her", the German said.

"I've always thought she's a confidence player, as well".

"Novak seems good to me, coming through the heat", Federer said after Djokovic battled scorching temperatures to beat Gael Monfils in round two. "Today was not enough (but). looking at the overall picture, there's a lot to build from".

Sharapova and Kerber will resume their long-standing rivalry in their first meeting since April 2015. That was in contrast to Halep's 4-6, 6-4, 15-13 win in 3 hours and 45 minutes over Gates Mills native Lauren Davis. Halep wasted chances to serve for the match in the ninth, 11th and 15th games, then had to save three match points in the 22nd.

Apple's $29 iPhone Battery Replacement Program Opens Early Amid ThrottleGate Debacle
On Saturday, Apple announced that it would offer discounted replacement iPhone batteries and make them available in January . As a result, multiple lawsuits have already been filed against the company in the wake of the announcement.

The final set took 2 hour, 22 minutes and Halep won on her first match point when Davis hit a forehand wide along the sideline.

"I came out here trying to enjoy every point".

"I'm so happy it's 2018 not 2017". I'm nearly dead. I have no idea how much I run, I just know that my muscles are gone. "My ankle is, I don't know how it is because I don't feel it anymore!"

Japan's Naomi Osaka overpowered Ashleigh Barty 6-4 6-2 to reach the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time. Garcia will need to recover from her three-setter to face No. 17 seed Madison Keys, who was a 6-3, 6-4 victor over Ana Bogdan.

Kerber took the first set in just 29 minutes, displaying her trademark athleticism and forcing Sharapova into a number of erratic shots.

"I love Australia. I love the summer time". I didn't return well.

Open previous year, will next face Simona Halep for a place in the quarter-finals.
