It took a lot of guts to survive the extreme heat at Melbourne Park on Thursday afternoon...
But Maria Sharapova has proven time and time again during her career that she's not going anywhere.
The World No.3 beat Karin Knapp in a three-hour, 28-minute scorcher on Rod Laver Arena, 63 46 108.
Carla Suárez Navarro also battled over three hours and rallied from 5-2 down in the third set to win.
Caroline Wozniacki also won in three sets, beating Christina McHale in a streaky one, 60 16 62.
Wozniacki had lost to McHale in two of their three previous meetings, including their last meeting.
The extreme heat was followed by thunder and lightning, rainfall, then a gorgeous night session.
The rain didn't last long - and after the extremely hot afternoon, fans weren't even seeking shelter.
All of the postponements made for an absolutely packed night session at the Australian Open.
Victoria Azarenka was one of the first on - Redfoo and everyone in her box were out to support her.
Sloane Stephens put forth a gutsy display to beat contemporary Ajla Tomljanovic, 36 62 75.
Tomljanovic won five games in a row to lead 5-3 in the third but Stephens rallied to get the win.
Jelena Jankovic cruised through to the third round under the lights with a 62 60 win over Ayumi Morita.
Meanwhile, Daniela Hantuchova showed off some of her skills at the ivories during a day off from play.
Hantuchova plays the first match of Friday's day session against the World No.1, Serena Williams.
