Not only has Ellis Mertens reached the eighth final in the singles, she has now advanced to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open doubles. Along with Arna Sabalenka, she measured Laura Siegmund and Vera Svonareva in three sets.
In the first round of the doubles, Ellis Mertens defeated Alison van Yudwank. This time he faced a German-Russian team with Siegmund and Svonareva on the other side of the net. Her own doubles partner had previously lost to Serena Williams after an exciting three-setter in the singles division.
Sabalenga still wanted to use it with Mertens in the doubles division, and it soon emerged. They watched the first five games. The last games of the first set are for stats only. Two things in the set turned out differently. The early lead for Siegemond and Svonareva was immediately destroyed, but then Germany and Russia withdrew again.
