Kerber Advances in Three Sets, Venus Williams Moves Into Third Round at Australian Open

(January 18, 2017) No. 1 seed Angelique Kerber gave herself a birthday gift on Wednesday, a hard-fought 6-2, 6-7(3), 6-2 win over German countrywoman Carina Witthoeft.

The 29-year-old defending champion looked as though she was going to close out the match in straight sets,
but after taking a 3-2 lead in the second set tiebreak, her opponent amped up her game, while Kerber’s serve
vanished. Witthoeft won the next five points to send the match into a third set.

The two-time major winner had to overcome a break in the first game of the third set, but won four straight games to control the set. The fifth game saw Kerber having to fight off break points in long rallies to keep her edge.

“I was a little bit too defensive today, so I think that was the problem,” Kerber said. “When I was trying, I did, like, few more mistakes.

“So, yeah, I mean, I will try for the next round to really focusing on playing consistent from the first until the last point and not having too much up and downs during the match.

“I was doing I think a lot of mistakes like in the important moments. But at the end, I’m happy that I won the match. It was not so easy. The conditions were, like, also a little bit difficult today.
“At the end, I won, and this is all that counts for me.”

“Of course it was not so easy, especially also with the sun from the one side. But at the end, I was try my best. I’m through the next round, so, yeah, I’m looking forward to being now in the third round.”
During her on-court interview, the crowd serenaded her with the “Happy Birthday” song.

No. 13 seed and 2003 finalist Venus Williams advanced to the third round of the Australian Open, beating Swiss veteran Stefanie Voegele 6-3, 6-2 on Wednesday.

Venus, who was scheduled to play doubles with her sister Serena later in the day, pulled out of the doubles with an elbow injury.

“I was really disappointed not to be able to play in New Zealand. I was hoping to have the capacity to play both events here, but at this point I just need to be careful and just try to maintain myself.”

Venus will play Ying-Ying Duan in the third round.
“I don’t know anything about her,” Williams admitted. “I have never seen her play. Zero, like zero. So I’m going to have to, yeah, see how it goes. Like, maybe get a scouting report in the warm-up when we hit the five minutes and kind of see how it feels.”

Other women’s seeds advancing on the day included eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, No. 11 Elina Svitolina and No. 24 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. American Alison Riske upset No. 20 Zhang Shuai 7-6 (7), 4-6, 6-1.

Six-Time Champions Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams Begin Quests for Seven Title with Wins

Serena Williams

(January 17, 2017) No. 2 seeds Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic took their first steps in their quest for a seventh Australian Open title on Tuesday, each winning in straight sets.

 

Djokovic beat Fernando Verdasco in the first round of Melbourne 6-1, 7-6, 6-2. Verdasco almost beat the Serb in Doha earlier this month. He had five match points and could not close the  match. Djokovic came back to win the match and the tournament beating No. 1 Andy Murray in the final.

 

“I’m very pleased with the first round, considering I had one of the toughest first-round draws, definitely considering his form, how well he played in Doha,” Djokovic said. Just overall I’m feeling good about my performance.

 

“It was about 10 days ago, the match that we played. So, of course, you still have traces of, I guess, that match, emotions and everything that has happened.

“I use it in a way to just analyze and to get myself prepared for what’s coming up, to just be able to do things better than I’ve done that day in Doha. Even though I won the match, I thought I hadn’t played as well as I did tonight. Starting off a match as I did out of my blocks was obviously very satisfying to experience.

Serena Williams had to hold off a late surge by her first round opponent former Top Ten player Belinda Bencic, winning 6-4, 6-3. The 22-time major champion is now 65-1 in the first rounds of majors.

“I think it was pretty good,” Williams said after the match. “I mean, she’s a really good player. So I think I was able to start out well.

“I just wasn’t as aggressive as I was during those games. You know, she started playing better.

“I made a few errors on some key points, but for the most part, I still was going for everything and I was able to close it out.”

I feel like she’s definitely been having a lot more power. Obviously she beat me in Canada the last time we played, but I really don’t remember much about that match. I do remember — I just felt like she was doing really well.

 

The recently engaged Williams came into her news conference wearing a shirt which said “Equality.” Williams is engaged to Williams to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

Williams said: “with today being Martin Luther King Day, it’s important to spread the message of equality, which is something he talked about a lot and he tried to spread a lot, is equality and rights for everyone.

“With that, Nike and all the Nike athletes really want to be a part of this movement, especially, again, being that it’s Martin Luther King Day. And we really just want to speak up about things that we believe in and talk about equality.”

 

Rafael Nadal who won the Australian Open in 2009, back from a wrist injury beat Florian Mayer 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to reach the second round. Nadal lost in the first round last year to countryman Fernando Verdasco.

Nadal: “I think I played solid match, no? It was great to be back on the big stadium. I feel the support of the people, love the people. That is something that is very special for me. Just happy to see the court like this and the people supporting me. So just can say thanks.

“I am happy the way I am playing. I had good weeks of practice. Never easy the first round. Is always little bit more nerves at the beginning. I didn’t play against an easy opponent. The way that he plays is not a conventional game. You know, he change a lot of the rhythm of the point, you know, changing with a slice, then he hit a winner. Then he play little bit slower ball. Is not easy to read his game, no?

“So just am happy the way that I played. I played good all the key points. That’s very important for me.”

 

In the match of the day, 37-year-old veteran Ivo Karlovic won a five-set marathon lasting five-hours and 15 minutes beating Horacio Zeballos of Argentina 6-7 (6), 3-6, 7-5, 6-2, 22-20.  The match  set a record for most number of games (84) at the Australian Open in matches with tiebreaks. The Croatian  set a record for the tournament hitting 75 aces.

“It was real difficult match,” Karlovic said. It was also difficult mentally because I was down 2-0. I had to also fight against him and against my own head, you know. So it was definitely really difficult.”

“This is what I will, after my career, remember. If it was easy match or I lost easy, I wouldn’t remember. But this one definitely I will remember forever.”

In First Major Match as No. 1, Andy Murray Moves Into Second Round of Australian Open

(January 16, 2017) Coming into a major for the first time in his career as the No. 1 seed, Andy Murray had to hold off a game Illya Marchenko of Ukraine a 7-5, 7-6(5), 6-2 to advance to the second round of the Australian Open on Monday.

Marchenko hit 46 winners to 62 unforced errors in the match to Murray’s 25 winners and 27 errors, but the winner broke his opponent’s serve six times.

The Scot has never won in Melbourne, but has been a finalist five times including the last two years.
Marchenko made 62 unforced errors, compared with Murray’s 27.

“I don’t think it was the best match, to be honest,” Murray said. “You know, the conditions there were pretty different to what we’ve been practicing. Last week’s been pretty cool. A lot of days, it’s been overcast. The temperature of the court is much cooler. When it’s like that, the ball is bouncing a bit lower, a bit easier to control the ball. I was a bit tentative because of that.

“And, yeah, didn’t serve that well either. So you end up having to work really hard on a lot of your service games when it’s like that.
“It just was tough.”

“I didn’t move that well,” he explained. “That’s how it felt anyway. But sometimes that can also be down to the conditions, as well. The ball’s flying through the air a little bit quicker, so the ball is coming onto you faster than what it was the last few days. Maybe wasn’t reacting as quickly as I would have liked.

“But, yeah, maybe also nerves there first round as well. It’s maybe normal to feel a little bit slow on your feet or a bit heavy-legged in the first round.”

Murray, recently receiving a knighthood by the Queen of England, on top of becoming No. 1 in men’s tennis, talked about his feeling about being on top of the tennis world.

“It’s been great. I think because it’s taken me so long to get there, obviously I want to try to stay there, but also I feel like I’m mature enough now to handle it. Maybe, you know, if it happens when you’re very young, you might feel extra pressures, the responsibilities might feel a bit much. But I think because I’m much older and more mature, it’s been good.”

Next up for the World No. 1 is qualifier Andrey Rublev.

“I know a little bit about him,” Murray admitted. “I never hit with him or played against him, but I’ve seen him play before and he goes for it. He doesn’t hold back. You know, he hits a big ball.”

“I saw him play a couple of years ago at the US Open against Youzhny. I watched a bit of his match there. I thought he was very good. Clean ball-striker. Like I said, goes for it.

“Obviously when you get out there, things look a little bit different than they might on the TV or on the video. But try to watch a bit the next couple of days and hopefully go in with a good strategy. I’ll need to work some things out myself when I’m out there.”

 

Kei Nishikori

Fifth-seeded Kei Nishikori had to battle for a five-set win over Russia’s Andrey Kuznetsov 5-7, 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-2 in 3 hours and 34 minutes.

The man from Japan had a 5-2 lead in the fourth set tiebreak, but Kuznetsov won the next four points and won the set to sent the match to a fifth set. Nishikori dominated the final set by breaking his opponent’s serve twice.
“I think I let him come back fourth set,” said Nishikori. “I should have finished that set. Especially I was up tiebreak, but I think he played well from the beginning. Fifth set I start playing much better. Yeah, it was tough, really tough match.”

Nishikori will not be playing in the first round of Davis Cup for Japan when they host France.

“I’m not playing because the schedule, it’s gonna be too tight. Going South America, Rio and Buenos Aires, and if I play Davis Cup, that’s way too much, you know, for my body and Indian Wells and Miami is coming up after. So I just decided not to play.”

Murray was also asked about Davis Cup:
“I think tennis needs a great team competition. Davis Cup has been there. I think almost everyone I know, like, in the media, all of the tennis players, everyone seems to be in agreement that the format needs to change.
“I sat in a room with all of the guys on the player council, and nobody was for the neutral venue. There were many things discussed that could change Davis Cup, we thought for the better. A lot of players agreed upon. None of that’s been done yet.

“The only thing that I think has been agreed is a neutral final, which I don’t know many people that think that’s a good idea.

“So, yeah, I do think it needs to change. If the top players aren’t playing, the event loses value. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens in the next 18 months or so, see if there’s anything we can do to make it better.”

Shelby Rogers Knocks Out Fourth Seed Simona Halep at Australian Open

 

(January 16, 2017) In the first major upset of the Australian Open on day one, American Shelby Rogers, ranked 52 in the world, knocked out fourth seed Simona Halep of Romania 6-3, 6-1 in Rod Laver Arena on Monday.

For Halep, this was the second straight year and fourth time over the last six years that she’s been ousted in the first round of the Australian Open.

“I think I played great today, trying to be aggressive going out there,” Rogers said. “My game plan worked. Just move forward, hit your shots, be really aggressive. When I’m doing that, I am playing well. Very happy with how I did today.”

 

Simona Halep

“Definitely she played well,” Halep said. “I think she played very high standard. I had pain at my knee.

“For me, in the second set, was difficult to move anymore, but she deserved to win. She was aggressive, and she hit very strong, the balls.”

“I’m never thinking to withdraw a tournament, because it’s not in my inside,” she continued.

“But I tried. I had some anti-inflammatory before the match, and the previous days. But when you have the tension of the match, official match, the pressure, it comes harder.

“So I had harder pain, and I couldn’t do what I wanted.”
Rogers, who made a big breakthrough at a major in 2014, when she reached the last eighth of the French Open, talked about what she took away from that run – “the biggest thing I took away from that was just that I can compete with the top players in the world and I’m good enough, you know. And little things here and there I need to work on, but I’m here. I need to believe in myself, and, yeah.

“So I have definitely carried that away from the French Open and just been enjoying it a little bit, I think. There has been a lot of positive feedback, which has been nice.

“Just trying to keep that going.”

Rogers hit 26 winners, breaking Halep’s serve four times.

“I have had a couple good weeks leading up to Melbourne,” she said. Rogers warmed up for Melbourne by reaching the quarterfinals of Hobart. “I started well in Brisbane and had a couple of good matches in Hobart, as well. It’s nice to feel like you have had some matches already, which is a really nice thing.

“I wasn’t here last year, actually, so it’s extra special for me.”

The 24-year-old Rogers from Charleston, South Carolina, will play the winner of the Ashleigh Barty and Annika Beck match in the second round.
