Australian Open Day Three Results & Quick Hits

  • It almost was an un-happy birthday for top seed, World No. 1 and defending champion Angelique Kerber, who was taken to three sets by compatriot Carina Witthoeft – she will be relived to get through that but faces Kristyna Pliskova next – she’s been texting her bis gister, who beat Kerber in Cincinnati before losing to her in the US Open final last year, for tips.
  • After their respective five-set epics both Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka got back down to business with straight sets wins to book their places in the third round
  • Andy Murray overcame a spirited resistance from qualifier Andrey Rublev, despite falling awkwardly when his ankle twisted slightly – he was confident that it was not as serious as it looked
  • Dan Evans came from a set down to stun 7th seed Marin Cilic as he too advanced to the third round
  • The headlines have to go to Nick Kyrgios. The mercurial Aussie was two sets up and breezing past Andreas Seppi once more before code violations tipped his balance, and he wound up losing to the Italian in three sets. It was a strangely non-defiant Kyrgios in press later that night acknowledging that perhaps his off-season preparation could and should have been different – and that maybe he really does need a coach.
