Putintseva turns tables on Stephens in Sydney comeback

"I finally learned my lesson", Barty said.

The Romanian, who cut short her 2018 season with a back injury, was beaten 6-4 6-4 by the world number 15 in the second round after a first-round bye.

While Barty marches on in pursuit of a second straight final in Sydney, Halep's defeat leaves her Australian Open preparations in tatters.

"I dug myself into a little bit of a hole there, but I just said, "Look mate, be aggressive".

ASH Barty claimed one of the biggest wins of her career after destroying World No.1 Simona Halep in straight sets to reach the Sydney International quarter-finals.

Additionally, he can play third-base and fill in for Andujar if they choose to DH him and utilize his bat over his glove. The Yankees plan to use LeMahieu, a three-time Gold Glover, in a versatile role around the infield.

And while Barty is 33/1 with Unibet to win the Australian Open, those odds are bound to shorten if she goes on to win the title in Sydney.

"The biggest thing, I believed that I could I win".

"I knew that Sim would be a little bit rusty, being her first match of the year, first match in a while. We're both on the same court and I'm just really happy I came out and executed".

"She played really well and deserved to win".

The 27-year-old Halep will be at the Australian Open next week in Melbourne without a coach after parting ways with Australian mentor Darren Cahill, who can longer commit to Halep due to family reasons.

Cesc Fabregas completes move from Chelsea to Monaco
Monaco have scored just 16 goals in the league this season, and a reliable striker would help fire them out of the relegation zone.

The 22-year-old struggled after missing the first but she did enough to prevail as the victor, fending off nine out of 11 break points she faced to seal the deal and celebrate a huge triumph after believing in herself all the time, even when she was a break down in set number two. "In extremely tricky conditions, [I was] very happy with the way I was able to keep it kind of together".

"I felt like it was really clean considering the conditions".

She will face either Belgian 10th seed Elise Mertens or Estonia's Anett Kontaveit in the next round.

Belarusian Sasnovich defeated Priscilla Hon 0-6 6-3 6-3, while Bacsinszky also came from a set down to beat an Australian player, winning 5-7 6-4 6-3 against Sam Stosur.

Belinda Bencic, conqueror of second seed Mihaela Buzarnescu in round one, dumped out Zoe Hives 6-2 6-4. "Reilly's an incredibly tough opponent", de Minaur said.
