Australian Open: Fourth seed Osaka survives Hsieh scare to reach fourth round

Serena Williams was far too good for Dayana Yastremska

They came out here against the top players and won.

"She hits down the line and then hits a weird crosscourt".

"It was a really intense match, and it was some incredible points, " said Williams, who improved to 9-1 against Halep. I really love grand slams.

21-year-old US Open champion Naomi Osaka has said she is inspired from the performances of "kids" Stefanos Tsitsipas and Frances Tiafoe in the ongoing Australian Open tournament in Melbourne.

Serena Williams powered into the fourth round of the Australian Open on Saturday with a 6-2 6-1 demolition of Ukrainian teenager Dayana Yastremska to continue her charge through the Melbourne Park draw. She reached the fourth round previous year here, after beating Garbine Muguruzu, and at Wimbledon, where she beat top-ranked Simona Halep.

"But she was just playing so well, and I think I got overwhelmed". "I'm such a fighter". It's definitely something that's innate.

"I don't know if Serena needs my help or not", Venus said.

Osaka's overhitting cost her in the sixth game of the set which allowed Hsieh to claim the first break of the match.

Down with three match points, the Latvian swung a forehand away at the net to save the first, but Osaka, who was not deterred, clinched her spot in the last eight.

The seventh seed, a quarter-finalist at Melbourne Park now for three years in a row, was in sensational form against Muguruza, hitting 23 winners and only three unforced errors. "I feel like these conditions can be good for me".

"I walked into the match knowing that she was going to do a lot of unusual things, no offence", Osaka said.

The 17th-seeded Keys has reached the semifinals or better at three of the last five Grand Slam tournaments. "I had to rise and put my level up and was very happy I could handle the pressure (serving at) one all in the third set".

As for the prospect of playing the Williams sisters in back-to-back matches, Halep called it "the toughest draw I've ever had".

Halep then fell behind by a break in the second, before suddenly seeming to awaken and display her own brand of baseline talent that carried her to the Australian Open final and French Open championship in 2018.

She dropped her first two service games in the match, and she missed very narrowly on some crucial points.

Next, Svitolina will face Naomi Osaka from Japan. Osaka cleaned up four games at the close of the set. Sevastova beat No. 21 Wang Qiang 6-3, 6-3. This helped her pull herself together Monday to reach the last eight, too.

"I'm happy with how I fought", Osaka said.

"I personally think she was making it a bigger deal than it had to be".
