Serena Williams consoles teen opponent at Australian Open: ‘Don’t cry’

Serena Williams consoles Ukraine's Dayana Yastremska after winning their third round match at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne.

Title-favorite Williams, who has been in devastating form at the season-opening Grand Slam, comforted the Odessa-born pro with encouragement, immediately approaching the world number 57, whose third-round showing is her best at a senior Grand Slam, at the end of the match after noticing she had become visibly upset, telling her "you did fantastic, don't cry".

Romania's Simona Halep (R) shakes hands with Venus Williams of the USA during their women's singles match on day six of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne on January 19, 2019. Serena also looks for her fourth straight quarterfinal at the Australian Open. "I remember one time in particular against Venus at Wimbledon, as I was walking to the net, I started bawling", she said. "I kind of liked that, you know".

Yastremska had treatment on her right foot but it was only delaying the inevitable and Williams took just a few minutes to bring up match point after play resumed. "You did so well", Williams said.

"I played many times against her", said Halep. "It's good to see that attitude", she added.

Yankees to Sign Reliever Adam Ottavino to Three-Year, $27 Million Deal
The Yankees may not be interested in the big-ticket free agents this offseason, but they continue to load up at the next level. Ottavino figures to be one of New York's primary setup men for closer Aroldis Chapman .

This is Williams's first official tournament since the controversial US Open final, and only her eighth since she came back last March, so sparingly does she play.

On the women's side, all eyes will be on Serena Williams as she aims for Grand Slam number 24.

One is the top ranked player in the world and the other, seeded 16th, is arguably the best player in the sport.

"Only in the Grand Slams it's not allowed, I think this needed to be said". It was very hot conditions so I was struggling a little. But for sure she's the best player in the world, because she won so many Grand Slams. 'I feel like with my platform, the things I do, the different boards that I sit on, we really talk about equality, gender equality, role equality, pay equality, how important that is.

"I honestly would love to face the world No. 1", said Williams.

Barty party continues in Melbourne with Sharapova win
There is nothing I can do. "I just have to wait, and I know she was playing by the rule book". "It didn't bother me at all". With her win, Barty becomes the first Australian woman through to the Australian Open quarter-finals in ten bloody years.

"I thought she played awesome, came out swinging".

Last October, Patrick Mouratoglou, the coach at the centre of Serena Williams's US Open final meltdown, called for on-court coaching to be permitted at all events. "Every match was intimidating and not easy but you just go out and do the best you can". "I just want to try to play my best tennis because I have nothing to lose against them". Serena hopes to make a grand slam quarterfinal for the 13th time in her last 14 appearances.

"And if it is tolerated, it's hard for the coaches to know if they should do it or not because the other ones are doing it and if you don't do it with your player you feel your player has a disadvantage compared to the other ones".

Serena Williams recalls being in the position of young Dayana Yastremska, an ambitious and highly talented teenager overcome with emotion in the disappointment of defeat.

Jurgen Klopp: Maybe it’s my fault Salah didn’t score more goals
We have to make sure that we just fight in each game like it's the last game and the boys did that. "We had to stay positive". The Brazilian hobbled off with a hamstring injury during the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
