MELBOURNE, Australia – A couple of Canadian left in action – including young Keegan Rice in the boys’ doubles, who bowed out with his Korean partner in a match tiebreak.
Quad wheelchair player Rob Shaw, eliminated last Tuesday night in the singles, was out with Aussie wheelchair legend Heath Davidson in the doubles against the Dutch No. 1 young guns. And it was quick.
So all the Canadians are out.
Beyond that, Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula, both the subject of shock eliminations in the singles, will try to bring home the doubles hardware as they’re still alive there. And they impressed on Wednesday.
Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time.
