Federer, Djokovic, del Potro Through — Aussie Open

Tennis- Australian Open- Rod Laver Arena Melbourne Australia

They last played against each other at 2017 Shanghai.

The reigning Australian Open Champion seemed to be going through the motions in a fairly routine encounter for the first two sets, a frustrating experience for the world no.55, who fell just short of being able to provide any real challenge to Federer.

Federer had already beaten Aljaz Bedene and Jan Lennard-Struff without dropping a set and was again in imperious form against an opponent he has now beaten 17 times and not lost to since 2011.

Djokovic next faces Korea's Hyeon Chung on Monday for a place in the quarter-final.

Set a modest target of 148 runs for victory on Saturday, the Thunder's opening pair put on a quick-fire 85-run partnership off just 8.2 overs as the visitors stormed to 3-149 from 16.1 overs.

Taking on the character of Ron Burgundy from his "Anchorman" films, the actor stole the show from interviewer and tennis great John McEnroe - as a somewhat nervous Federer looked on. I think that was a good test for him. However, he fell in the semifinals to Roddick, in a final set tiebreaker leaving him a paralyzing 120 points behind Agassi. "I understand there is a factor of tickets".

But sure it's helpful to have played in the night. Chung advanced when Mischa retired with a viral illness while trailing 6-2, 4-1. There are maybe 60 guys asking for stuff so I'm one of those guys, yes.

Kerber, the 2016 Australian Open champion, had a 6-4, 6-1 win over Donna Vekic before the crowd sang "Happy Birthday" to celebrate her 30th birthday.

The Japanese 20-year-old's win finally marked some success in the third round at a major - she was previously 0 for 5. Halep will next play Lauren Davis.

It took Fabio Fognini nearly eight years, but he's finally avenged a fourth-round loss to Julien Benneteau at Wimbledon. Clearly, the 2014 champion was too ambitious.

The actor signed off with his famous catchphrase from "Anchorman": "Stay classy", inserting Melbourne at the end instead of San Diego.

Djokovic lost in the second round here last year, but won five of the previous six Australian Open titles.

The world No.2 is chasing a milestone 20th grand slam title and his first back-to-back Australian Open titles since 2006-07. Whatever happened happened. Unfortunately, you have to believe in the process you're in right now.

Wawrinka, who had six months out after surgery on his left knee, beat Ricardas Berankis 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (2).

Roger Federer cruised into the fourth round also sought out eliminated Russian youngster Alexander Zverev.
