Australian Open 2018: Men's Day 4 review

The Serb had taken the first set 6-2 but needed a lengthy break for treatment.

Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils embrace at the net after battling through four sets in extreme temperatures.

The victory equalled 30-year-old Fognini's best result at the Australian Open.

No. 9 seed Stan Wawrinka, the 2014 Australian Open champion, No. 7 David Goffin and No. 13 Sam Querrey didnt make it through the second round.

She was banned for 15 months after testing positive for meldonium, not long after the medication was added to the list of banned substances, when she was in Australia in 2016.

The 193-centimetre tall baseliner was gasping for air between points and approached the chair umpire midway through the second set to warn that he was on the verge of collapsing.

Chung Hyeon is 2-0 against the Zverev family this week at Melbourne Park.

The third seed, whose preparation was hampered by a thigh injury, was always trailing against the 88-ranked Hsieh Su-wei from Taiwan before being edged out 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 in one hour and 59 minutes on Rod Laver Arena.

Chung is through to the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time after knocking out fourth seed Alexander Zverev.

World No1 Simona Halep was also convincing in her straight demolition of Canadian Eugenie Bouchard.

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

Monfils was beaten 4-6, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 in his second-round clash against Djokovic and had to consult a doctor after experiencing dizziness because of the heat.

With 7 more flu deaths in Dallas County, toll doubles last season's
The flu outbreak has also forced at least 11 school districts in Texas and Oklahoma to shut down, including two in North Texas. So far this season, 24 people have died from the flu in SC , according to DHEC's latest week-to-week flu report .

Their 2010 match at the All-England Club was their only previous meeting.

"You stop all matches?"

The Austrian has now reached the round of 16 at his last six grand slam tournaments.

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

Davis twice had medical timeouts in the final set to have blisters on both feet treated.

Naomi Osaka reacts during her third round match against Ashleigh Barty.

In another eye-catching contest between former champions, Angelique Kerber continued her resurgence with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Maria Sharapova.

"I played Novak two or three years ago, so if he wins tonight I just want to enjoy things on the court".

The 17th-seeded Keys, who lost in the U.S. Open final past year to Sloane Stephens, saved three break points serving for the match, finally clinching it on her first match point when Bogdan netted a backhand.

Sixth seed Karolina Pliskova is also in action, against Lucie Safarova, while eighth seed Caroline Garcia meets unseeded Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Roger Federer on the other hand had no such problems with his German opponent, blasting his way to a straight-set victory over Jan-Lennard Struff. Best eight players in the world, singles players, best doubles players, are playing there. Indeed, he looked disappointed when one of Djokovic's serves was called out, because he was already tottering towards his chair.
