Novak Djokovic passes Jo-Wilfried Tsonga test to make round three

Novak Djokovic passes Jo-Wilfried Tsonga test to make round three

The No. 27 ranked Shapovalov did not lose a service game to Daniel throughout the contest.

Djokovic and Tsonga traded blow-for-blow with breaks early in the first set.

Djokovic, 31, won the first of his 14 Grand Slams in that final against Tsonga over a decade ago and he said the memories came flooding back as the pair walked back out on Rod Laver Arena.

"I didn't really expect to be asked that because I just finished my match", said the sixth-seeded Ukrainian. So far this tournament, the seven-time Aussie Open champ has faced only three break points, won 81 percent of her first serves and has yet to drop a set. "I think it's very much in the head, and when you want it so bad, and you're Serena, you find a way".

"A little bit yes, because he hadn't said that he was going to stop, and obviously had the stuff at the Australian Open put on for him and the players saying goodbye as if that was him done", said the 32-year-old to reporters on Wednesday.

"I still go have an acai bowl in the morning". "I mean, look, we know how to win Slams, Novak, Rafa, myself".

The Swiss ace was speaking to reporters following his straight-sets second-round victory over Britain's Daniel Evans at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

In the women's draw, Serena Williams will look to continue her charge towards a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam when she faces Eugenie Bouchard in the second round, while top-ranked Simona Halep takes on unseeded American Sofia Kenin.

Shapovalov's meteoric rise into the world's top 30 began at the Rogers Cup in 2017, when he knocked off then-No.

"I kind of like to jump in the deep end and swim", Williams said in an on-court interview after the 49-minute workout, "and see what happens".

"For me, everything is about the sport in Canada".

"It's nearly 1am but obviously I don't feel like sleeping", he added.

German star Alexander Zverev could become the next Grand Slam star of world tennis. "I'm just hoping I can do everything in my powers to be a role model for all these young, next champions coming up". "He had trouble with his knee but ranking does not do justice to him at the moment, he has plenty of experience playing in a big stage".

The 21-year-old's breakthrough at Flushing Meadow over Serena Williams made her a new standard bearer for tennis in her homeland, Asia and the next generation of women, and she is working hard on living up to the hype.
