Saturday at the 2016 Australian Open saw the exit of two big-name players that were added to the ever-growing list of falling seeds in Melbourne this year.
In the morning, Garbine Muguruza lost to Barbora Strycova, ending what has been a very disappointing, injury-impaired, Aussie summer for the Spaniard.
Muguruza was later joined by Ana Ivanovic, who lost to Madison Keys in a dramatic three-set match that was overshadowed by Ivanovic’s coach Nigel Sears’ collapsing in the stands, forcing a 40-minute interruption of play.
