Serena consoles Ukrainian teen after beating her to sail into last 16

Williams knows what it's like to be the one weeping after a loss.

Serena Williams recalls being in the position of young Dayana Yastremska, an ambitious and highly talented teenager overcome with emotion in the disappointment of defeat.

When pushed further on what she will need to do to oust Williams next week, Halep said: "It's going to be huge challenge for me". I kind of liked that. It merely reflects how infrequently Williams has played over the past two years while she was pregnant and then gave birth. Later on, the champion while talking about the incident to BBC, said, "I thought she did really unbelievable". "She played unbelievable tennis and hopefully we'll see many more of her talents back in Melbourne. It's good to see that attitude".

Japan's No.4 seed Naomi Osaka, who beat Williams in the controversial final of last year's US Open, had a tough time on Saturday before finding a way past Hsieh Su-Wei from Taiwan 5-7 6-4 6-1.

"I honestly would love to face the world No.1". She has an 8-1 record against Halep but they have not played since 2016.

"For sure she's the best player in the world because she won so many Grand Slams", Halep added.

A "Triple Winter Threat" Is About To Slam Southern Ontario This Weekend
Freezing drizzle may precede the snow with a light glaze possible this morning along and south of a line from Albion to Omaha. New York City could see 2 to 3 inches of snow and 1 to 2 inches of sleet, with Philly receiving a bit less of both.

"There's no time for that, I'm sorry to say", the Russian responded when asked if she had any sympathy for her opponent.

"Only in the Grand Slams it's not allowed, I think this needed to be said".

Will Serena make it win number nine?

Might Venus offer her sibling any tips?

"I think I helped her take the best out of herself at a period of time in her career". I told her to definitely look into it so she knows going into the future what to expect'.

Halep has held the year-end No.1 ranking for each of the past two years, a period during which she won her maiden major title in 2018 at Roland Garros.

Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine shows her emotion after losing her third round match against Serena Williams of the United States during day six of the 2019 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 19, 2019 in Melbourne, Australia.

British PM Theresa May should opt for no-deal Brexit: Nile Gardiner
And we both recognise that Mr Corbyn is about the worst possible person to lead the Labour party - him much more so. However, it only takes seven MPs from the Conservatives or DUP to vote against the government for Mrs May to lose.

But that ends Monday, when Williams faces Simona Halep in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

That resume pales in comparison to Serena's, of course.

Fourteen-time Grand Slam victor and top seed Djokovic is gunning for a record seventh Australian title. Another Halep break courtesy of a Williams forehand error put the first set on the Romanian's racquet and she served it out after 39 minutes. "I just want to try to play my best tennis because I have nothing to lose against them".

Locker room talk Serena complimented Yastremska in the locker room after their match.

While Williams showed her humanity on court, she was less sure-footed when the subject of equal prize money came up, offering soundbites rather than detail.

Williams grabbed a pair of service breaks and a 4-0 lead after less than 15 minutes and was well on her way to yet another easy-looking win. In the victory, Serena won 85 percent of her first serve points and 5- percent of her second serve points.

Trump's tweet today comes as he faces heat over the ongoing government shutdown , in which FEMA is partially affected. Additionally, a little more than half of forestland in California is owned and managed by the federal government.

It's the second time this week that someone Williams has beaten has cried after being beaten. "You did really well", Williams told an emotional Yastremska after her victory on Rod Laver Arena.
