Heating up: Sharapova vs Kerber in 3rd round; Muguruza out
The big match Saturday had the only two women's major champions left in the tournament playing each other - 2008 Australian victor Maria Sharapova vs. 2016 Melbourne Park champion Angelique Kerber.
A much-hyped match between two former Australian champions was no contest: 2016 victor Angelique Kerber beat Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena to open the night program. Chung beat fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev 5-7, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 six days after a win over No. 32 Mischa Zverev in the first round.
Sharapova, still unseeded after returning from her 15-month doping ban, sees matches against the leading players as the best way to test her level.
The third set took 2 hours and 22 minutes and, after wasting three previous chances to serve out the match, Halep converted on her first match point when Davis hit a forehand wide.
She streaked away with the first set and although 2008 champion Sharapova briefly threatened a fightback after falling behind in the second, it was not to be the Russian's night.
Kerber was right back in the groove which had brought her an unbeaten start to the year and fuelled talk that she had regained the form which had taken her to this title in 2016 and world No 1.
The Swiss defending champion headlines Rod Laver Arena in the evening, with the 19-time Grand Slam victor tackling France's Richard Gasquet.
"I'm looking forward to the thirties".
Their encounter equalled the Open's record for most games played in a women's match - and also saw some impromptu courtside surgery when the American lost a toenail.
I mean, we both played in the past a lot of good matches. "I think it was a good decision to do it".
