Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza felled in Melbourne

Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza felled in Melbourne

As was the case for Federer, Djokovic's previous competitive tournament was Wimbledon past year, where he was forced to retire in his quarter-final match against Tomas Berdych due to an elbow injury.

Federer next plays Marton Fucsovics of Hungary, who beat Nicolas Kicker in straight sets earlier Saturday.

Six-times Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic extended his winning streak to 14 matches against lefthanders at grand slams, beating Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-2 6-3 6-3 in the third-round.

He has beaten the Spaniard in all five career meetings, including in straight sets in the fourth round at the French Open previous year.

Djokovic will next face Hyeon Chung, who took out a Zverev for the second time this week. Radwanska, who called for the trainer after the first set and sported strapping on her left knee, fought bravely in the second set but the twice Melbourne semi-finalist could not find a way to stop Hsieh.

Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, had made it to the final in Auckland a week before this year's Australian Open, losing to Roberto Bautista Agut.

A much-hyped match between two former Australian champions was no contest: 2016 victor Angelique Kerber beat Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena to open the night program. "I want to go further than fourth round and I'll give everything to do it for the first time", he said.

In an epic encounter between two of the best movers on the tour, it was as unpredictably brilliant as the Sharapova match was a non-event.

Sharapova was back at the Australian Open for the first time since 2016, when a failed doping test led to a 15-month ban from tennis.

Cuomo unveils state budget proposal
In all, the state said $1.9 billion came in 2017 by such pre-filing of state taxes. "We're looking at all options, " Cuomo said. When a $4 billion deficit is looming, the first thing to do is reduce spending, not increase taxation.

Alarm bells were ringing for Kerber when Sharapova rifled away a backhand victor to earn a break point at 3-3 but the Russian missed a regulation forehand to waste the chance.

Their last three meetings have gone to three sets and Kerber is expecting another tight affair. The 32-year-old Taiwanese had previously managed only two wins over top 20 players in her 17 years as a professional.

"She's had success here".

It took Fabio Fognini almost eight years, but he's finally avenged a fourth-round loss to Julien Benneteau at Wimbledon.

Former Australian Open semifinalist Johanna Konta also lost in the second round to American Bernarda Pera 6-4, 7-5. His defense moved through another round with a 6-2, 7-5, 6-4 win over No. 29 Richard Gasquet.

He will next play the victor of Friday's later match between Tennys Sandgren and Maximilian Marterer.

Sadly, however, Australian hopes on the women's side is over for another year, following Barty's straight-sets loss to Naomi Osaka in the third round.

The older Chan and Hlavackova, the No. 1 seeds in the women's doubles, advanced to the third round with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Oksana Kalashnikova of Georgia and Varvara Lepchenko of the United States. Garcia will play Madison Keys in the fourth round.

"It's wonderful to make the fourth round again after 10 years", said the emotional world No. 88 after the win on Margaret Court Arena.
