Australian Open 2018: Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal agree on one thing

"The policy is from consultation with the players, and remember in most places, be it the Middle East or others parts where it is very warm, they don't have a heat policy", he said.

Both players hung iced towels around their necks at changeovers and Monfils, who leant on his racket at times, seemingly to remain standing, needed the doctor, telling the umpire that he was dizzy and feeling sick.

I'm around 50 in the world at this point, so I know I'm going to be facing seeded players, first, second, third round.

American "lucky loser" Bernarda Pera stunned Konta 6-4 7-5 to continue her dream run after only gaining a last-minute entry to the main draw for the first time following the withdrawal of Russian Margarita Gasparyan. "I have some figuring out to do, what happens to me in deciding moments in Grand Slam", he said.

Without much trouble, Kerber strolled throught the first set, where Sharapova could hold just one serve. "At times we were both just trying to get a little bit of extra breath, a few seconds more, so we can recover", he said. "But I got through it".

Six-time Australian Open victor Novak Djokovic battled the searing heat to progress to the third round, defeating 2018 Qatar ExxonMobil victor Gael Monfils 4-6 6-3 6-1 6-3.

Former No. 1-ranked Karolina Pliskova advanced to a third-round match against No. 29 Lucie Safarova. "I'm feeling good, it's good to win today, of course, on my birthday". "Despite winning our last match, I faced two match points and barely got through that one, 7-6 in the third". "I was checking the tickets to fly back".

"I was dying on the court for 40 minutes", the 31-year-old told reporters later after having revived in a cold tub.


After beating Jan-Lennard Struff in the second round of the Australian Open, he said: "Yes, they could definitely pay more, no doubt about it".

"They play so hard".

In the second set, Sharapova was broken while serving for the match, sending it to the tiebreaker which she dominated.

Sharapova's success against 14th seed Sevastova was by no means unexpected, but Naomi Osaka's straight-sets win over 16th seed Vesnina raised eyebrows, and Aliaksandra Sasnovich made light work of ousting Lucic-Baroni, seeded 28.

Ninth-seeded Johanna Konta was more exposed to the heat on an outside court, and lost to USA lucky loser Bernarda Pera 6-4, 7-5. Poland's 26th seed progressed with a 2-6 7-5 6-3 win over Belarusian Lesia Tsurenko.

The German endured a miserable 2017, slipping from world number one to outside the top 20, but she has been revitalised at the start of this season and is yet to lose a match.

Fifth seed Thiem took the advice to heart as he struggled through a energy-sapping five-setter against Denis Kudla.
