It’s been another fantastic day of tennis in Melbourne. The day saw some of the best in the world in action with some cracking matches, incredible shots and well a post-match interview which didn’t particularly go to plan for Daria Gavrilova!
Kyrgios defeated by Berdych!
I sad in my preview it’s good to see Kyrgios let his tennis do the talking and then today against Berdych the Australian was outplayed for the majority of the match there didn’t seem to be much intensity in his game at all and then his on court antics grabbed the headlines after complaining during the second set about some music he could hear and then at the end of the match when he shook the umpires hand he said to him “You’re a terrible referee”. Overall it’s a disappointing end to a good couple of weeks for Nick but also credit to Berdych for a controlled performance for the majority of the match.
Serena dominates once again…
The world number one just seems to get better and better as the tournament goes on with a pretty emphatic performances against Kasatkina from Russia winning 6-1 6-1 in little time at all and now standing in her way of a quarter final against either Belinda Bencic who defeated Serena last year or Maria Sharapova who hasn’t defeated Serena since 2004 is Margarita Gasparyan.
Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova both won on day 5 in which was a special day for both. Roger won his 300th career match at a Grand Slam event where as Maria record her 600th career win. Will both players find success and potentially lift the trophy in Melbourne in a week’s time?
