Good morning tennis fans and welcome to day nine of the Australian Open.
Sadly, there are no Australians left competing for the women’s or men’s singles title after Novak Djokovic comprehensively outmatched Alex de Minaur last night in a fourth-round romp.
But there is still plenty going on, with all eyes on the quarter-finals.
And the Wheelchair Championships are set to get under way with world No. 3 Heath Davidson among 23 Aussies in the mix.
Elena Rybakina, who knocked out world No.1 Iga Swiatek in the fourth round, is back on court against Jelena Ostapenko, who defeated young American Coco Gauff. And Karen Khachanov is up against Sebastian Korda.
Then, Jessica Pegula will face Victoria Azarenka before the headline match where Stefanos Tsitsipas will meet Jiri Lehecka for a spot in the semi-finals.
Play starts at 11am AEDT – 12.30pm for the first singles match – and will run until late tonight, please feel free to leave a comment on the blog at anytime and enjoy the day to come.
