  • W2W4 at Australian Open: Keys, Sandgren hoping to give US contingent more success

Halep will face Angelique Kerber in the last four after the German thrashed Madison Keys 6-1 6-2 in 51 minutes.

For Keys so much depends on the serve, which let her down badly on this occasion as Kerber won 57 percent of points on the American's first serve.

"She takes time away, especially with her forehand down the line". "But I knew this before, actually".

"I think all the matches we play are pretty similar". "That gives me a lot of confidence to coming here". It went into remission past year, when she began compulsively looking over her shoulder or anxiously trying to imagine the future.

"For sure, is going to be a second marathon this tournament", Halep said. Both Kerber and Halep neutralized the famously big serves of their opponents with aggressive and precise returning, while using their own unremarkable serves wisely. It's a new tournament.

The White House warned that the campaign risked exacerbating a humanitarian crisis and disrupting what had been a stable area. But Russia does not appear to be acting to prevent it, and has pulled its own troops out of the Afrin area.

"I think this was a great match".

Pliskova, who is known to be one of the biggest servers in women's tennis at the moment, dominated the beginning moments of the clash as she found angles and made Halep run to all corners of the court.

The first racket of the world Simona Halep on the way to the 10th quarterfinal in his career at the Grand slam confidently defeated Japanese Naomi Osaka (6:3, 6:2). "I think she has an ability to cover the court and anticipate like really no one else does", Keys said of Kerber. "I'm just happy to get through and be here in the semis". "It's going to be about me", Pliskova said.

Halep, 26, beat Lauren Davis in a four-hour epic which she edged 15-13 in round three.

Even so, the combustible Romanian who struggles with self-belief had doubts early on, worrying that a leg injury might not hold up under quality pressure.

Chung is naturally cautious about taking on the American journeyman who, like the Korean, finds himself in unknown territory after overcoming fifth seed Dominic Thiem in a five-set thriller on Monday.

Keys said: "She obviously is unbelievable at getting lots of balls back and makes you feel like you have to go for bigger shots than you would against other players, because she's going to get two, three more balls".

She knows it won't be easy. I got used to everything. "You never know with her because she has insane good shots sometimes and also the serve". I know she's a very strong player and she likes it here.

"But I started to like this tournament".

Djokovic, who trailed the first set 4-1 but fought back to 5-5 before losing the tiebreaker, took a medical timeout to have his right arm massaged before the start of the second set. Also, all the memories, of course, I will never forget the memories I had 2016 here, so that's why I feel so good. "Chilling, doing nothing. I will be in my room watching tennis, a little bit of treatment that I had already".
