Upsets, upsets everywhere
I have written a good deal about the upsets in both singles and doubles in this Australian Open, but there have also been some big ones in juniors. Top seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is still around, but others have not been so lucky. Third seed Nikola Hofmanova was defeated by an unseeded player in the second round, and in the third, second seed Ksenia Lykina was also defeated by an unseeded player. Also going out in the third round was the number 7 seed, who fell to Australia's Jessica Moore, and number 4 seed Madison Brengle, who was defeated by the fourteenth seed. Brengle had a 4-0 lead in the third set, but lost the set, 9-7.
