Meanwhile, Alize Cornet has had a blockbuster Australian Open campaign so far, beating some of the topmost opponents on her way to a surprise quarter-finals place.

She also beat the likes of Tamara Zidansek and World No.2 Garbine Muguruza in the previous rounds. Despite being ranked 61st in the world, the 32-year-old looks like one of the most in-form players in the tournament. She has six career titles to her name in 13 career finals. In 2021, she took part in the Tenerife Ladies Open tournament where she qualified for the semifinals by defeating Anna Karolina with a score of 6-3, 6-3. But Alize lost the semifinals to Ann Li with a score of 2-6, 1-6.
