Maria Sakkari's journey at the Australian Open comes to an end

World No. 20 Maria Sakkari took on French opponent Kristina Mladenovic in the 1st round of the 2021 Australian Open.

Unfortunately she was beaten 6-2 0-6 6-3.

Despite loosing the first set, Sakkari broke Mladenovic in the second to win 6-0. You could see her fighting spirit come back.

However after her incredibly well second set, the pressure was on and Mladenovic ended up winning 6-3.

Last year at the Australian Open, Sakkari lost in the 4th round 6-7(4) 6-3 6-2 to Petra Kvitova.
