Australian Open: Gauff steals limelight while Williams crashes out

One of the most dramatic grand slam days in recent memory saw Serena Williams crash out, Caroline Wozniacki sent into retirement and Coco Gauff write more headlines by beating defending champion Naomi Osaka. It was another remarkable achievement for the 15-year-old, while Williams’ wait for a recordequalling 24th grand slam singles title goes on after defeat by China’s Wang Qiang.

The fitting final act saw Roger Federer conjure a Houdini act to beat John Millman in five sets. Stefanos Tsitsipas was another big name to go out, beaten by Milos Raonic, but there were comfortable wins for Novak Djokovic and Ashleigh Barty.
