Federer into 19th straight Open third round

Federer into 19th straight Open third round

Switzerland's five-time champion Federer beat Richard Gasquet 6-2 7-5 6-4 to progress to the last 16.

'I actually think the organisation is doing him a favour by treating him like s**t, ' he added.

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic has made his way into the round of 16 of the Australian Open, defeating Albert Ramos-Vinolas in straight sets to finish the game at 6-2 6-3 6-3. Top-ranked Nadal will get under way Monday night against Victor Estrella Burgos on Rod Laver Arena, where he lost the final in five sets to a year ago. That has not stopped him from winning his three matches thus far, though. Later on, Angelique Kerber was a comfortable victor over Maria Sharapova. There is television, there is tickets to sell, and there is players that achieve more than others.

'This time, it is the alleged "preferential treatment" of Roger Federer that has sent the media into a frenzy.

Sixth-seeded Karolina Pliskova, No. 8 Caroline Garcia and No. 26 Agnieszka Radwanska also advanced.

South Korea's Chung Hyeon battled past unheralded American Tennys Sandgren 6-4 7-6, 6-3 to become the lowest-ranked semi-finalist since Marat Safin in 2004

Keys will next play the victor of Saturday's later match between Aliaksandra Sasnovich and eighth-seeded Caroline Garcia. Importantly, Gasquet's two wins came in 2005 and 2011, both going to a deciding set on clay. In the second, Gasquet did establish himself and started to get his trademark backhand firing. To Gasquet's credit, the Frenchman battled until the end. He broke the Federer serve for the first time this tournament to lead 3-1 but back came the Swiss to clinch victory in a tie-break.

With the finishing line edging closer Federer appeared to momentarily lose his concentration as Gasquet brought up his first break point of the match with the 36-year-old serving with a break advantage at 4-2. That all changes tonight, however, against the World No.2.

In an unusual step following the next point - won by Fognini to send the game to a deuce - Berdych approached the chair umpire.

Despite the reluctance for his children to follow in his footsteps, Federer, who is chasing a 20th Grand Slam in Melbourne, is a great believer in kids playing sport more generally, believing it can teach them a lot.

But the underdog was unable to get the job done, as the Romanian clawed her way back to deuce and eventually won the game. "Used to go to Dubai when it was 45 - 38 seems nearly OK". Yet his unheralded opponent, bidding to become only the third Hungarian man to reach a grand slam quarterfinal in the professional era, offered an all-round display that belied his record, even if it did not surprise Federer.
