Novak Djokovic made too much noise during win over Kruger, says expert

Serena Williams at the Australian Open

Nearly as if she never left.

Sloane Stephens advanced at the Australian Open at the expense of her former doubles partner Timea Babos in a second-round match the women's tour billed as a battle of the so-called "frenemies".

"I think that no player will be able to beat my record of 64 Grand Slam titles in total", she said.

Ukraine's Dayana Yastremska, ranked 59th, awaits her in the third round.

Serena Williams spoke to the media after her comfortable 6-0, 6-2 win over Tatjana Maria at the Australian Open.

The Swiss master is bidding for his 21st Grand Slam crown and a hat-trick of Melbourne titles this year, and he sailed into the third round on Wednesday with a straight sets win over British qualifier Dan Evans.

Serena Williams has no time for the 7-year-old Lululemon running tights and the sorority tank hanging on its last thread that you (OK, I) wear to the gym.

'Loving @serenawilliams outfit. She's giving me #AussieRules meets SuperHero.

She pulled clear of Graf's 22 by winning at Melbourne Park in 2017 while eight weeks pregnant and many already consider her the greatest of all time.

Williams offered Maria, a fellow mother, some words of encouragement as they walked to their respective sides of the court.

Meanwhile, French Open finalist Dominic Thiem went the distance against Benoit Paire before wrapping up a 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 1-6, 6-3 win just after 2:00am to end day two's entertainment.

Keys advanced through the first round after defeating Destanee Aiava on Tuesday, January 15. "This is why we play the big tournaments, to play the best players".

And on Tuesday at the first round of the Australian Open in Melbourne, the American tennis champion had a defiant message for her critics.

"Look at that, a man who's disturbed, certainly disturbed by Mitchell Krueger".

Andre Agassi believes Novak Djokovic can win two Grand Slam titles in each of the next four years and surpass Roger Federer's record haul. Her baby, Olympia, was born on September 1, 2017, and Williams was off the tour until last March. Back in May 2018, she received backlash for wearing a black catsuit to the French Open to help prevent blood clots from forming in her legs.

"It's a Serena-tard... an incredibly strong, powerful statement for moms that are trying to get back and get fit."

"I'm thrilled to see him doing it, he's somebody I..."

The younger Williams sister has no interest in that sort of comparison now.

"I don't want to give myself a ranking".
