Melbourne (AP) - Julia Görges is eliminated in the third round of the Australian Open. The 31-year-old tennis player from Bad Oldesloe lost 6: 1, 6: 7 (4: 7), 2: 6 against the American Alison Riske in Melbourne.
Görges thus missed the duel with the Australian world number one Ashleigh Barty, with whom she competes in a double at the Australian Open. The German number two had last reached the round of 16 of the Australian Open in 2015. Her best Grand Slam performance is the move into the Wimbledon semi-finals 2018. On Saturday Angelique Kerber and Alexander Zverev still have the chance to move on to the round of 16.
