Czech seventh seed Petra Kvitova defeated Spain's Paula Badosa 7-5, 7-5 to reach the last 32 while American 14th seed Sofia Kenin beat Ann Li 6-1, 6-3.

Australia has been organizing the first grand slam of 2020 despite major bushfires.
The country is witnessing deadly bushfires estimated to have killed 1.25 billion animals with over 20 million acres of land burned.
At least 25 people lost their lives while battling the heavy blazes that erupted last August, causing millions of dollars in damages.
The Australian Open became a fundraiser to help the victims of bushfires. It said in a website statement that at least $5.18 million has been raised for those affected by the fires.
The 108th edition of the Australian Open will end on Feb. 2. -
