Australian Open day 10 recap: another chapter in record history!

Australian Open day 10 recap: another chapter in record history!

They accomplished their stunning feats against marquee players that no one-save for their mothers, of course-ever believed they could do.

10 — number of consecutive match wins by semifinalist Mertens.

Edmund, ranked 49 and only the fourth British man to reach the last four in Melbourne in the post-1968 Open Era, takes on former US Open champion Marin Cilic for a place in Sunday's final. "I'm a positive person, but today is an opportunity lost to be in a semifinal for a Grand Slam and fight for an important title for me". As for my champion, I'm sticking with Federer.

"I worked hard to be here", said Nadal, who skipped tournaments in Abu Dhabi and Brisbane, Australia, while his knee recovered at the start of the season.

Defending champion Roger Federer sauntered past Hungarian Marton Fucsovics to reach the 52nd grand slam quarter-final of his career where he will meet big-serving Czech Tomas Berdych.

It was both incredible and unbelievable, Chung beating a legend that had won six Australian Opens and 12 Grand Slams overall-in straight sets at that.

Chung's reward is a last-eight clash with unheralded American Tennys Sandgren, who upset Austrian fifth seed Dominic Thiem 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-7 (7/9).

"In the last game at 40-0 up I was thinking what I had to do at the ceremony, something like that, and after the break points I was like, nothing to do with ceremony, but just keep playing, stay focused", Chung said on court in his limited English.

"Coming back from 5-2 in the first set, it was clearly big tonight".

The anger may have improved Federer's game, as he went on to take out Berdych in an impressive victory.

But Djokovic wasn't in tip-top shape, his right elbow that had sidelined him the last six months still obviously bothered him, as evidenced by his 47 unforced errors against Chung's 27. Even coach Andre Agassi's encouragement as he stood up after almost every point in Djokovic's box, wasn't enough to change the course of the match.

Federer got himself fired up arguing with the umpire over a HawkEye review that could not be shown on the screen because of a technical fault and saved two set points before turning the match around.

After slipping from No. 1 to 21 in the rankings during a barren 2017, Kerber has started the new year strongly, winning four matches at the Hopman Cup mixed team tournament in Perth, five victories on the way to the Sydney International title and now another five matches so far at Melbourne Park.

Following the growing popularity of Chung however, boutiques at major department stores are set to change the promotional posters to those featuring the rising South Korean tennis player. "Someone go out in five sets and not being able to finish". After his quarter-final win over Tomas Berdych at Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday, Federer said he sent a text message to Nadal before he went to sleep, adding, 'I'm happy the news is not bad.

But Sandgren said that loss inspired him. "So, yeah, I had to deal with it till the end of the match", he said. Isn't a Pasig City court's ruling declaring last year's POC elections as null and void enough for the POC to abide by it, in the process heeding a provision in the court's decision setting for a new election on February 23?
