Smooth Keys glides into last 16 at Open

As well, it was Federer's 90th match win at Melbourne Park.

Keys knows it will be a hard match and isn't trying to get ahead of herself and start thinking about another possible Grand Slam final.

Timeless Roger Federer has continued to rewrite tennis history at the Australian Open.

"Credit to her. She played an unbelievable match", said Kerber, who is on a 13-match winning streak.

The big match Saturday had the only two women's major champions left in the tournament playing each other - 2008 Australian victor Maria Sharapova vs. 2016 Melbourne Park champion Angelique Kerber. "I mean, my sleep schedule was totally messed up. She's always unsafe, especially at the Grand Slams", Kerber said.

"I needed to play more aggressive". "So, yeah, a lot of positive things that I managed well".

"It's a good position for me to be in and I'm enjoying it".

Defending champion Roger Federer, meanwhile, had no real difficulties in reaching the Australian Open quarterfinals for the 14th time.

Kerber takes on Hsieh Su-wei.

Chung beat fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev 5-7, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 in the third round on Rod Laver Arena. Halep wasted chances to serve for the match in the ninth, 11th and 15th games, then had to save three match points in the 22nd. Furthermore, merciless serving from Keys saw her claim 78 percent of first-serve points, steamrolling over the lackluster Frenchwoman in straight sets.

I think I just played really solid and smart. "My ankle is, I don't know how it is because I don't feel it anymore!"

Garcia broke back for 4-2 but Keys was charged with confidence and rattled off the last two games, securing victory by getting down low to dig out a sublime crosscourt forehand victor.

Fifth-seeded Dominic Thiem has advanced to the fourth round at Melbourne Park, beating Adrian Mannarino 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 on Margaret Court Arena.

But former No. 1 Kerber held her composure and finally got a succession of breaks to finish off the second set and dominate the third in a 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory Monday afternoon that earned her a quarterfinal spot against U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys.

The 17th seed said her victory had been built on the back of learning when to go for her shots. Kerber has won the last seven sets against Keys. Dimitrov avenged a loss two weeks ago to Nick Kyrgios with a 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (4) win over Nick Kyrgios on Sunday night.

"Expectations are different", this year, Federer said.

Six-time champion Novak Djokovic was a fourth-round casualty, the injury- hampered Serb beaten 7-6 (7-4) 7-5 7-6 (7-3) by Hyeon Chung.

In other women's third-round matches, sixth-seeded Karolina Pliskova beat Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 7-5 and No. 8 Caroline Garcia beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-3, 5-7, 6-2. He's won five tour-level titles, but never gone beyond the fourth round at a major.
