Among them, former world number 2 Paula Vadosa (Spain), world number 35 Isla Tomjanovic (Australia), and former world number 13 Nick Kyrios (Australia) announced their absence from the Australian Open due to injury.

Ons Jaber (Tunisia), the second seed in the women’s singles, also unexpectedly got eliminated in the second round, losing to World No. 86 Marketa Bondorsova (Czech Republic).

Regarding ‘The Curse of Netflix’, Fritz said, “I don’t know. I don’t think I lost because I was on it.” Maria Sakari (Greece), 6th seed, said after the second round, “The curse of Netflix? I’ve never heard of it. The documentary filming staff were all nice people, so I had a good time. If you get distracted by such rumors, bad luck will come. Of course there are games that don’t go well, but it’s because I played badly, not because of the curse.” However, Sakari was also defeated in the third round by world number 87 Zhu Lin (China), who had never beaten a top 10 player before.
In response, Netflix posted on its official Twitter account that the disappearance of 9 out of 10 people was “to be clear, this is just a coincidence”.

Ozer Aliasim, who is the only one to reach the 4th round, faces world number 71 Iri Rehica (Czech Republic) at the age of 21 in the next match. Rehica advanced to the round of 16 by beating 11th seed Cameron Norri (Great Britain) and 21st seed Borna Choric (Croatia) in this tournament.
