Highlights: Day three at the Australian Open
MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Highlights of the third day at the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, on Wednesday (times AEST; GMT+11):
1100 PLAY UNDERWAY
Play started on schedule on day three, with defending champion Naomi Osaka taking on China's Zheng Saisai at Margaret Court Arena for a place in the third round on a warm, gusty morning at Melbourne Park.
The temperature is forecast to reach 32 degrees Celsius (90F) before a late cool change brings rain.
Petra Kvitova, runnerup to Osaka in Melbourne last year, was playing unseeded Spaniard Paula Badosa in the opening match at Rod Laver Arena.
