Oz Day 8 – dubs, oldsters, Genie and Daniel

MELBOURNE – Less than a day after making the quarterfinals in singles, Genie Bouchard was to be back on court today – twice – in the third round of the women’s doubles and the first round of the mixed with Aussie Sam Groth. She and partner Vera Dushevina lost the doubles. And she pulled out of the mixed.

Daniel Nestor also had a doubleheader, in men’s doubles and in mixed with Kristina Mladenovic. And he was 2-for-2.
