MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Alize Cornet has finally reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament in her 63rd attempt. The 32-year-old Cornet beat two-time major champion Simona Halep 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 at the Australian Open. It’s her 17th trip to the Australian Open and her 60th consecutive major. She will next play Danielle Collins. No. 115-ranked Kaia Kanepi upset second-seeded Aryna Sabalenka in a match that finished just after midnight. That was about the same time Stefanos Tsitsipas edged Taylor Fritz in five sets. U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev beat 70th-ranked Maxime Cressy and will next play ninth-seeded Felix Auger-Aliassime.
