Raonic upset in Brisbane
champion Milos Raonic lost in
straight sets to 18-year-old Alex
De Minaur in a second-round
upset Wednesday at the Bris-
bane International yesterday.
Raonic, who won the Bris-
bane title in 2016 and reached
the Wimbledon final that year,
struggled to find rhythm with
his usually booming serve in a
6-4, 6-4 loss to the Australian
De Minaur pressured Raonic
with his relentless service re-
turns, made just one unforced
error and only dropped serve
once — when serving for the
match at 5-2
en route to the
biggest win of his career.
The victory put De Min-
aur into a quarterfinal match
against American qualifier Mi-
chael Mmoh, who upset No.
8-seeded Mischa Zverev 6-2,
“It’s going to take a while for
me to believe what’s happened
just now,” De Minaur said.
Raonic was playing his first
match since October after tak-
ing time out to deal with inju-
ries that also ruled him out of
the U.S. Open last year, when
his ranking slipped to No. 24
21 spots lower than his ca-
reer-high finish in 2016.
Nick Kyrgios was the first into
the men’s quarterfinals, over-
coming a knee problem to out-
last fellow Australian Matthew
Ebden 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5), 6-2.

advances at ASB Classic
AUCKLAND, New Zealand—Top-
seeded Caroline Wozniacki ad-
vanced to the quarterfinals of the
ASB Tennis Classic yesterday, beat-
ing Petra Martic of Croatia 6-2, 6-2.
After taking 58 minutes to beat
American Madison Brengle in her
first-round match Tuesday, Wozni-
acki needed only 53 minutes to
beat unseeded Martic, despite
dropping her serve in the first
game of the second set.
Wozniacki served strongly to
take early control, winning 89
percent of points on first serve and
putting 90th-ranked Martic under
pressure with deep groundstrokes
which forced errors.
“I’m trying to stay aggressive,”
Wozniacki said. “I still made some
unforced errors. It’s taking a few
matches to play like 100 percent
but I still felt I played pretty well
Second-seed Julia Goerges beat
Viktoria Kuzmova 6-4, 4-0, third-
seeded Barbora Strycova beat Jo-
hanna Larsson 6-1, 6-7 (3), 6-2 and
Polona Herzog had a 6-4, 6-2 win
over Kirsten Flipkens.
