Serena Williams faces tough draw in Australian Open

Australian Open 2019 schedule, dates: When does the Grand Slam tennis tournament in Melbourne start and finish?

The legacy of Serena Williams, who next week will compete in her first Grand Slam since her fiery clash with a U.S. Open umpire, will not be harmed by the infamous feud that tarnished the NY final, American great Chris Evert said on Wednesday. She warmed up for Melbourne by making the semi-finals of the Brisbane International last week, where she blamed a poor attitude for losing to Lesia Tsurenko.

"I wake up and can't lift my hands over my head".

Caroline Wozniacki is also looking to defend her title after winning her first career major at this event past year.

Second mysterious radio burst detected in space
Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada . There's no definitive cause of these fast radio bursts and it's unclear what caused multiple FRBs from the same location.


She arrives ranked three believing she can control her condition.

Britain's Andy Murray will face world number one Novak Djokovic in a practice match on Thursday as part of his preparations for the Australian Open. You can see it in her eyes. Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov is set to face Germany's Peter Gojowczyk in the first round of the 2019 Australian Open, which has $44.5 million in prize money up for grabs and runs between January 14 and 27.

Schuttler will add more "daring" to the 2016 Australian Open champion's game, said the German Tennis Association's Barbara Rittner, who helped develop Kerber as a teenager. The 21-year-old Japanese, however, had an inconsistent build up to the year's first grand slam. "I'm sure they'll work on it". Williams is also playing in her first Australian Open since winning it in 2017. "I feel like previous year I did a lot of that", she said.

4-Year-Old Dies From Complications Linked To Flu In Riverside County
Moore said physicians at CHEO are seeing cases of RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) and other viruses as well as some flu. From Dec. 23 to 29, 2019, the province reported 64 new influenza cases, including one death and one ICU admission.


"The fact that she dominated for so long and could break the record of grand slams, I think that will overshadow everything at the end of the day", former world No.1 Evert told a conference call. "There is a certain degree of pressure, but it's from myself".

That loss left Williams, who also lost in the Wimbledon final a year ago, short of matching Margaret Court's marker of 24 grand slam titles, a record the American has another chance of equalling in Melbourne over the next fortnight.

Williams was handed a warning by U.S. Open chair umpire Carlos Ramos last September for a coaching violation before being deducted a point for smashing her racket and later a game for a heated argument during her loss to Naomi Osaka. Her experiences have been a learning experience for me. "I always have insane big goals but I like to keep them to myself". "I'm trying to change it more, and I think I have".

Roger Federer's emotional interview - 'Never broke down like this'
