Roger Federer vs Richard Gasquet

Roger Federer vs Richard Gasquet

French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko struggled at times before beating Duan Yingying 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

Gasquet, 31, isn't the only player with a miserable head-to-head record against the Swiss, winning just two of their 18 meetings.

Lleyton Hewitt and Sam Groth also starred, defeating the third seeded doubles pairing in a stunning boilover in front of an adoring crowd.

A moment of controversy in the game came midway through the second set when the umpires communicated to the players that Hawk-eye is down and there can not be any challenges made till the service is back up.

Berdych, the 19th seed, earned his place in the last eight with a 6-1 6-4 6-4 win over Italy's Fabio Fognini.

36 years of age or not, Federer has certainly started this grand slam as he would like.

"This is unbelievable", Groth said of the parochial home support. I love playing against one-handed guys because we need to keep it alive for as long as possible!

Federer, bidding for his 20th grand slam title, beat Aljaz Bedene 6-3 6-4 6-3 at Melbourne Park, Djokovic defeated Donald Young 6-1 6-2 6-4 and Wawrinka battled to a 6-3 6-4 2-6 7-6 (2) win over Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis.

Second set: Federer 6-2, 2-2 Gasquet* (*denotes server) Gasquet's playing pretty well here, really. After the game, the five-time Australian Open victor revealed that he spent extra time working on his service game during the injury layoff in 2016.

"In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, it's great to be here with two tennis legends: Roger Federer and John Macintosh", Ferrell said. Gasquet obviously did not take the news lightly and lost his head a bit, allowing the Swiss to strengthen his foothold in the game.

Halep saved three match points in the 22nd game of the third set at 0-40 and Davis saved five break points in the 23rd game in the 3 hour, 45-minute match.

Gasquet pleaded with the umpire but there was nothing she could do and Gasquet went on to lose the game. Fact: "Novak Djokovic played his first two matches during the day, one of them in the blistering summer sun".

To make matters worse, Hawkeye was back in action just a few minutes later, but it was too late.

Annacone, who reached a career-high ranking of 12, admitted the press conference room has always been a potentially hard place but said Federer sees it differently. "I'm not saying he would have been broken but he would have been in an uncomfortable position he hasn't had yet".

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic both reached round four of the Australian Open with straight-set wins. "After a while without being on the competition ... second victory in a row, that's very important".
