Third seed Muguruza stunned by Hsieh at Australian Open in second round

Hsieh downs Radwanksa to reach last 16

Muguruza, who withdrew from the Sydney International last week, was succumbing to both the Melbourne heat and her fearless opponent in the second set.

The 20-year-old Alexander Zverev won five tournaments last year and has been tipped as a future Grand Slam champion.

Strycova beat Spaniard Lara Arruabarrena 6-3 6-4 in her second-round match.

Strycova will next face compatriot Karolina Pliskova, who she accused of stealing her coach Tomas Krupa past year.

Fognini will next play the victor of a later match Saturday between Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin del Potro.

Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber, champions here in 2008 and 2016, will meet in a heavyweight contest in the third round on Saturday after winning their matches in convincing fashion.

Next Gen ATP champion Chung Hyeon recorded his first victory over a top-10 player, beating fourth ranked Alexander Zverev 5-7 7-6 (3) 2-6 6-3 6-0 in the third round.

The 17th-seeded Keys, who lost in the U.S. Open final a year ago to Sloane Stephens, saved three break points serving for the match, finally clinching it on her first match point when Bogdan netted a backhand. Chung advanced when Mischa retired with a viral illness while trailing 6-2, 4-1.

Garbine Muguruza's run at the Australian Open ended in the second round.

Tennis - Australian Open - Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia, January 20, 2018.

Kerber says she is looking forward to the Sharapova encounter.

Thiem has now reached the round of 16 or better at each of his last six Grand Slam tournaments.

No. 13 Sam Querrey was the latest of the USA men eliminated when he lost his second-round match, 6-4, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-2, to 80th-ranked Marton Fucsovics.

"I'm a little bit exhausted of it!"

Former American greats Chris Evert and Tracy Austin took to twitter to praise Simona Halep and Lauren Davis for producing a three-set thriller on Rod Laver Arena.

Meanwhile, Konta looked in good form in her opening win over Madison Brengle but struggled to find her game in very hot conditions at Melbourne Park and came up against an inspired opponent in Bernada Pera, who claimed a 6-4, 7-5 victory.

"Austin, two-time U.S. Open victor, tweeted: "@Simona_Halep and @LaurenDavis93 are incredible warriors! She needed a medical timeout in the first set and accidentally hit a ball into a line judge in frustration.

Muguruza had five double-faults, including one to give No. 88-ranked Hsieh a match point, and made 43 unforced errors.

"I still feel pain", Halep said regarding an ankle injury in the previous round.

French eighth seed Caroline Garcia narrowly avoided elimination, battling back from a third-set deficit to see off Czech Marketa Vondrousova 6-7 (3-7) 6-2 8-6 in a two-and-half-hour scrap, played out in the searing early-afternoon heat.

Former No. 1-ranked Karolina Pliskova dropped only a game in each set of a win over Beatriz Haddad Maia.
