Djokovic Out Of Australian Open

Hyeon Chung celebrates his win against his idol Novak Djokovic

Zverev reached the fourth round at Wimbledon a year ago but has never gone further than the third round at the Australian Open and French Open, and he has failed to go beyond the second round at the US Open.

The 26-year-old Sandgren missed a match point in the fourth set but held on to beat Thiem.

Defending champion Roger Federer, meanwhile, had no real difficulties in reaching the Australian Open quarterfinals for the 14th time.

Again in the second set, Chung squandered a 3-0 lead, but managed to break Djokovic's serve one more time to seal the set.

The 21 year old claimed a 7-6,7-5, 7-6 victory to become the first South Korean to reach the quarter finals of any Grand Slam.

The 12-time major champion said he would need to reassess the injury, but didn't want his pain to detract from Chung's win.

"He was the better player on court today and he deserved to win."Djokovic said the injuries started troubling him at the end of the first set and a decision on where he goes from here would be made after talking with his medical team".

Pakistan PM to attend World Economic Forum meeting
He mentioned that PML-N had carried out utmost development work in South Punjab as compared to previous governments. PM Abbasi said that the government will complete its mandated tenure and will not leave a minute before.

Djokovic took a medical timeout in the first set to have treatment on his troublesome right elbow.

Chung faces another surprise quarter-final entrant in Tennys Sandgren, who overcame fifth seed Dominic Thiem on Monday.

"I definitely had a real pinch-me moment", said Sandgren, describing his internal dialogue after match point as: "Wow, this is hopefully real. I'm younger than Novak so I don't care!'" he said. "So, I'm sure that he's going to get some really good results in the future".

World number one Halep remained on course for a maiden grand slam title when she progressed to the quarter-finals of the Australian Open with a 6-3 6-2 win over Japan's Osaka.

Although he eventually regrouped to complete this second-round match - which Djokovic won by a 3-6, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 margin - Monfils looked like he might be forced to retire early on. She played unbelievable. She was hitting the balls, I don't know.

Zverev won five ATP Tour titles last season, including two at Masters level, and climbed to a high of third in the world, yet he has reached the fourth round at a slam only once and has not beaten a top-50 player over a best-of-five sets match.

Play got underway on schedule at 11 a.m. local time (0000 GMT) at Melbourne Park with Madison Keys and Caroline Garcia battling it out for a place in the quarter-finals. I was running everywhere and she always had the answer.
