Farewell to the world number one in the Australian Open tennis tournament in the round of 16

In the men’s round, two players who were in the top ten in the round of 16 were knocked out.

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek was knocked out of the Australian Open women’s tournament in the round of 16. The three-time Polish grand slam champion lost to last year’s Wimbledon winner Jelena Rybakina of Kazakhstan in two matches. American Cory Gauff, considered the secret favorite in the tournament, was also eliminated, as she was also defeated in two sets by former Roland Garros champion, Jelena Ostapenko.

In the men’s category, two players who were among the top 10 were also bid farewell: Canadian sixth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime lost to Czech Jiri Lischka in four matches, and Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz, seeded tenth, was beaten by the Czech Republic’s Jiri Liska. American Sebastian Korda, seeded 29th, in the final group in short. Korda’s father, Peter Korda, won a Grand Slam tournament in Melbourne in 1998.
