MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – Double-duty for Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski, who leads off with her women’s doubles quarterfinal with Cana-Kiwi Erin Routliffe.

And later in the day, plays her mixed doubles quarterfinal with American Nathaniel Lammons. She went 1-for-2.

More double duty, as Canadian junior Keegan Rice had second-round matches in both singles and doubles. He’s out of singles, but still in doubles.

And quad wheelchair player Robert Shaw played an Australian wild card in the first round of that event, and prevailed.
