Australian Open 2018 Live

We’re into the Round of 16 at the 2018 Australian Open. Very few of the top-seeded players from the men’s and women’s singles brackets have been eliminated at this point, four rounds into the year’s first Grand Slam.

Rafael Nadal, the top seed and last year’s runner-up, will have his toughest test of the tournament on Saturday against the 24th seed, Diego Schwartzman. The Australian Open remains the only Grand Slam that Nadal has only won once before. The man who beat him in 2017, Roger Federer, has been playing well thus far.

Also for the men, No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov continues his quest for a Grand Slam win, and he’s got to take out local favorite Nick Kyrgios, the 17th seed. Marin Cilic, the sixth seed, has the toughest out among the top seeds, as he will play Pablo Carreno Busta, the 10th seed.

Or perhaps it’s Busta who has the toughest out.

On the women’s side, the second seed, Caroline Wozniacki, has looked great and will face No. 19 Magdalena Rybarikova. Elina Svitolina, the popular pick to win it all, will face the unseeded Denisa Allertova. Her top competition is Simona Halep, who narrowly survived a three-set marathon against Lauren Davis on Friday. Halep is the top seed but looked utterly exhausted after her win over Davis.

You can find results, scores, and schedules for the women’s singles bracket at the Australian Open right here. Results for the men’s side can be found here.

Below is all you need to know to follow the Australian Open action on Saturday.

Real Madrid vs Deportivo La Coruna

Real have won just two of their last six games in all competitions with both victories coming in the Copa del Rey.Zidane’s side have dropped to fifth in La Liga and are 19 points behind leaders Barcelona, although they have a game in hand.”I don’t think about negative things, only positive,” said Zidane, whose side host Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.”We will find positive things. I’m never going to throw in the towel.”I’m going to continue fighting as I’ve always shown and I’m not going to quit ever.”

Real Madrid will host Deportivo La Coruna at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish Primera Division on Sunday afternoon.The reigning league champions have not shown any sign of defending the title as they currently sit a mammoth 19 points behind current leaders Barcelona.

In all seriousness, while Real Madrid are currently enduring a well-documented rough patch – well, it would have been tough to out-perform last year’s trophy-laden season – it is to be expected that they’ll get that dastardly monkey off their back any match now.

Although Los Blancos lost to Villareal last weekend, it wasn’t for want of trying. Madrid had 28 attempts at goal on the day, more than any other team in La Liga has in a single game this season.

This reassuring factor, paired with the fact that Depor are floundering at 18th place in the table and have picked up just one win in their last 10 games, means that this could provide a promising opportunity for Zidane’s men to get themselves a vital victory. However, should they fail to win, there will no doubt be sightings of the dreaded white handkerchiefs fluttering at the Bernabéu.

Real Madrid hopes to get some momentum going in La Liga when it hosts Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabeu.
