It's been a hot week so far at the Canberra Tennis Centre with all but eight competitors left in the women's singles draw.

Big seeds have fallen earlier than expected with Arina RODIONOVA (AUS) knocked out by 2016 winner Risa OZAKI (JPN) and Destanee AIAVA (AUS) defeated by world 255 Shilin XU (CHN) in three sets.

There's still plenty more action to come with the Quarterfinals which includes the 2017 winner and this year's fourth seed Olivia ROGOWSKA (AUS) looking to make it through to the final yet again.
