Happy Halep serves it up in Melbourne

After skillfully navigating through her first round match on Tuesday at the Australian Open, Simona Halep credits her new relaxed manner to having won her first Grand Slam in June at the French Open.

Being the best player in the game and not having won a Grand Slam was a particularly toxic combination for the world number one but after making pretty light work of Kaia Kanepi 6-7 6-4 6-2 the Romanian revealed she is just trying to be happy on court.

"I'm trying just to enjoy more and to be happy on court," she explained. "So nothing else.

"The results don't matter any more. I just want to improve in myself and also in my game. Everything I do, I do for this."

Halep is $21.00 at online bookmaker bet365 to win at Melbourne Park but has a tough draw, with her on course to meet Serena Williams in the fourth round. Williams is available at $4.33 at bet365 to win an eighth Australian Open crown.

Sofia Kenin in the second round on Thursday, a match she is $1.36 to win, with the American available at $3.20.
