Match suspended after Ivanovic's coach collapses


Ana Ivanovic's third-round match at the Australain Open has been suspended after coach Nigel Sears collapsed unexpectedly.

Ivanovic was leading Madison Keys 6-4 1-0 when 59-year-old Sears, Andy Murray's father-in-law, fell to the ground in the coach's box at Rod Laver Arena on Saturday.

The match was immediately delayed as Ivanovic watched on in concern from her chair.

Ivanovic and Keys were then ushered down the tunnel before officials decided to suspend proceedings, with world number two Murray in action against Joao Sousa over at Margaret Court Arena.

It is the second time this week Ivanovic's match has been delayed by an incident in the crowd.

The Serb was left shaken when a spectator crashed down a set of stairs during her win over Anastasija Sevastova on Thursday.
