MELBOURNE (Ekstra Bladet): It pulls up to a thunder of a tennis match, when Caroline Wozniacki at 05.30 meetings its not right good friend Maria Sharapova in the third round of the Australian Open.
A fight, which you can follow live here on the site.
But also outside the Rod Laver Arena with capacity for 15.000 spectators, threatening heavy clouds.
Bygerne have the last hours swept across Melbourne, which – as the locals say it – can have four seasons in a day. This means that the play on the outer courts was suspended, while there is a rolled roof over the three large levels.
Thus also on the main, Rod Laver Arena, where the dane and the Russian have to fight their battles, when Roger Federer has been finished.
the Game gets slightly slower when the roof is rolled on, but the weather forecast indicates that it rolled back, so Sharapova and Wozniacki are going to play under the open sky with temperatures in the middle twenties.
Both have a lot of fans in the international tennis, so it is a little hard to predict where the majority will place their support.
At the turn, the dane weak favorite, believe it most of the tenniskyndige colleagues in the international press, which Ekstra Bladet has spoken with.
although both players have shown terrific form in the first two rounds, so has dane much more topkampe on the back of last season, and she is today a player of a different caliber than her, the Russian has met before. Their last meeting is back in 2015.
