MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — American Jamie Hampton has withdrawn from the Australian Open because of a hip injury.
Filling a mostly empty stadium court with her familiar shrieks Wednesday, the world's former No. 1 player beat Elena Vesnina of Russia 6-1, 6-4 in a match postponed one day because of rain. That meant Azarenka reached the second round 72 hours after some players.
With the third round complete for the leading players at Melbourne Park, only one of the first eight men's seeds did not advance: No. 6 Juan Martin del Potro. Six of the eight top women were through.
American Jamie Hampton won her first grass court match Monday when she upset 27th seed Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia 6-4, 7-6 (1) at Wimbledon.
Until last week, Jamie Hampton of the United States never had hit tennis balls on a grass court, let alone played _ or won _ a match at Wimbledon.
"Other than Serena, we're all a work in progress. A couple years ago, we were not even here. And so we've definitely taken a step forward and we're still progressing and still trying to make that push," said Hampton, who beat qualifier Anna Karolina Schmiedlova of Slovakia 7-5, 6-2. "Whenever you have a big group like that, there are going to be a few that are going to rise."
