US Tennis Stars Struggle in Australian Open Preparation Tournaments

The preparation tournaments for the Australian Open did not go quite as planned for the US tennis stars Sebastian Korda and Ben Shelton.

Both were eliminated in the semi-finals by lower-ranked players in Auckland and Adelaide respectively. The top seeded Shelton had to bow to world number 74, Taro Daniel from Japan, 5:7, 6:7 (9). Korda, number 3 in Adelaide, only played three games against Jiri Lehecka (CZE).

In the women’s tournaments, Jessica Pegula’s absence from the semi-finals in Adelaide stands out. The American, seeded number two and number five in the WTA rankings, had to withdraw due to stomach problems.
