Sharapova, Wozniacki to meet in 3rd round at Australia Open
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — A side effect of not playing much for Maria Sharapova is the likelihood of having to face highly ranked rivals in the first week of a major.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The Latest on Wednesday from the Australian Open (all times local):
