Novak Djokovic vs Denis Shapovalov; result, score, match updates and more

Serena Williams at the Australian Open

The 33-year-old Hsieh, who plays with a double-handed grip on both sides and uses a mixture of spin and slice and drop shots to unsettle her rivals, reached the fourth round last year in Melbourne and at Wimbledon, where she beat top-ranked Simona Halep. As long as Shapovalov is spraying winners like he has been, he's got a shot to continue marching on.

The Frenchman, ranked 36, won the fourth set in a tiebreak after Zverev, who claimed the 2018 ATP Tour Finals after beating Roger Federer in the semis and then Novak Djokovic, wasted four more break point opportunities in the seventh game.

Amid rain delays and drawn-out matches, Spain's Garbine Muguruza and Britain's Johanna Konta didn't get on court until half-past midnight - the latest start to a match in the event's history.

Djokovic was far from his best but appeared in complete control when leading by two sets and 4-1 in the third. Djokovic looks for his seventh straight grand slam fourth round appearance.

Williams is bidding to match Margaret Court's record of 24 Grand Slam crowns, and win an eighth in Australia, on her first return to Melbourne Park since lifting the trophy in 2017 while pregnant. Djokovic has won seven of his last eight matches on hard court.

It came after Raonic had two tough opening matches with Nick Kyrgios and 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka. Shapovalov is still shaky with his second serve at times and can pile up the unforced errors in crucial times.

The gap between the players' standing was on full show as Djokovic cruised to victory in two hours and four minutes, setting up a mouthwatering intergenerational clash with Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov.

Despite showing flashes of brilliance, the 19-year-old Shapovalov lacked the consistency to trouble the world number one. "But I think that the young guys can not keep such a high level to win Djokovic at five sets".
