Business end of the Oz Open

And it’s a much quieter affair too with crowds sent home on Friday night to start their 5-day lockdown. Ash Barty is the only Aussie still in the singles draw with our women’s world #1 up against American Shelby Rogers tonight. And Dylan Alcott yesterday kicked off his quest for a 7th Australian Open quad singles title with a win – he’s straight into the semis today. Meanwhile, a joyous doubles partnership between Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis came to an end with a second-round loss yesterday. Australia still has a couple of men’s teams in the doubles – John Peers/Michael Venus and John Patrick Smith/Matthew Ebden play their third-round matches today. Outside the Aussies, Novak Djokovic became the second man to rack up 300 grand slam match wins last night. The win put him into the quarter-finals on Tuesday.
