'Switch Ankles' Trouble Halep on Way to Win, Bouchard Awaits

"I felt the pain but I didn't think about it", said Halep, who will next face American Lauren Davies. "I had before last year, about five (times), this ankle during the years".

17-year-old Destanee Aiava will play the biggest match of her young career when she steps onto Rod Laver Arena against world No.1 Simona Halep. "I'm waiting to see how it is after the recovery because now it's still warm and I can not feel it". "I'm happy I didn't buy one".

American Sam Querrey, a quarter-finalist previous year, began his campaign with a 6-3 6-4 6-2 win over Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez.

The three-time Grand Slam victor, who defeated Rafael Nadal to win the 2014 Australian Open, has slipped to No. 9 in the world rankings and faces a battle to climb higher after his early exit. Making her sixth main draw appearance at Australian Open, she aims to repeat the historical first major semifinal run in 2015 when she defeated No.18 V.Williams and No.4 Kvitova before losing to Serena Williams.

No. 13 Sam Querrey restored some order for the US men with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 win over Feliciano Lopez. However, her twin sister, Kristyna, was beaten in 3 sets by Agnieszka Radwanska.

In the upset on a scorching day 4, Chinese Taipei's 82nd ranked Hsieh Su-Wei ousted reigning Wimbledon champion and third seed Garbine Muguruza in straight set, 7-6 (1) 6-4 in the second round at Rod Laver Arena.

Temperature at Melbourne Park is forecast to hit 39 degrees Celsius this week and American actor and comedian Will Ferrel discussed how he plans to beat the heat. "You know, a little bit like headless chicken". "I don't", he told a news conference.

"I look forward to these matches".

"Then it happened at the beginning of the match and I got scared like (against Aiava) as well. And hot milk. Yes".

In other women's first round results, Andrea Petkovic of Germany beat Czech 27th seed Petra Kvitová 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 in a match lasting two hours and 53 minutes.

Aiava, who qualified for the tournament through a wildcard playoff last month, showed why Australia is so excited about her emerging talent in a 73-minute opening set featuring six breaks of serve.

In the women's singles, world No. 1 Simona Halep yesterday kept her quest for a maiden Grand Slam title on course by cruising into the third round of tournament. Although she believes will be able to play in the next round, she remains cautious.

No. 17-seeded Keys, the runner-up at the U.S. Open, had a 6-1, 7-5 win over Wang Qiang.
