Talent which defeated Serena Williams to become Australian Open Champion was stunned by Bertens. The German was shown the doors by less known Dutch tennis player Kiki Bertens. Like Li Na and Stan Wawrinka the World no. 3 after winning her maiden grandslam has been knocked out in first round. Bertens won 6-2 3-6 6-3.
Bertens who stepped in as an underdog went on to win first set 6-2. Even after the first set it looked that world No. 3 will make a comeback and so did she. Second set was dominated by Angelique Kerber but this did not affect the Bertens confidence of winning today. In fact with a break Kiki served for the match at 5-3. Third set finished at 6-3 with Kerber’s exit.
On Court 1, Berdych overcame Pospisil in three sets (6-3 6-2 6-1). It was a pretty easy match for Czech Republican. E. Bouchard also won her match quite easily 6-2 6-2.
