Roger Federer was last on court Friday at the Australian Open in Melbourne, and the 17-time grand slam winner took just 90 minutes to wrap up a comfortable 6-2 6-4 6-4 win over Czech 10th seed Tomas Berdych. He'll play Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori in the last 16. Michael Dodge/Getty Images

Murray didn't look back from that point and duly wrapped up a straight-sets victory to set up a clash with 50th-ranked German Mischa Zverev, who has reached round four at a grand slam for the first time. SAEED KHAN/AFP/AFP/Getty Images

Speaking after her second-round win, Canada's Eugenie Bouchard detailed her attempts to break the "vicious cycle" that saw her lose form and confidence, but she couldn't make the last 16 after losing 6-4 3-6 7-5 to America's Coco Vandeweghe. WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images
France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga clearly didn't enjoy this point during his battle with Jack Sock of the United States, but he was happier after setting up a clash with Britain's Dan Evans thanks to a 7-6 7-5 6-7 6-3 victory. PAUL CROCK/AFP/Getty Images
The 67th-ranked Evans' fairytale run continued as he beat home favorite Bernard Tomic 7-5 7-6 7-6 to reach the last 16 of a grand slam for the first time. The 26-year-old pulled a huge upset in the previous round as he disposed of seventh seed Marin Cilic. Tomic was Australia's last surviving player in the men's draw. SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images
Guess who? It's three-time grand slam winner Stan Wawrinka, of course. The Swiss fourth seed edged past Serbia's Viktor Troicki 4-6 6-4 7-5 4-6 6-4 and will now play 85th-ranked Italian Andreas Seppi in the fourth round. Cameron Spencer/Getty Images
Venus Williams breezed into the fourth round, giving up just one game in a victory over China's Duan Ying-Ying that took just less than an hour. The American, at 36 the oldest player in the women's draw, will next play Germany's Mona Barthel. GREG WOOD/AFP/AFP/Getty Images
