Hewitt fell to No. 8 David Ferrer, and although he is still alive in doubles play, the two-time Grand Slam champion and former world No. 1 essentially reached the end of the line Thursday.

Elsewhere on the men’s side, both No. 2 Andy Murray and No. 4 Stan Wawrinka looked dominant in straight-sets victories, as they continue to look like two of the biggest threats to knock off top-ranked Novak Djokovic.

In addition to a few more seeded players getting sent packing from the women’s draw, No. 14 Victoria Azarenka maintained her status as one of the top contenders by blowing past Danka Kovinic.

As the Aussie Open field continues to shrink, here is a full listing of Thursday’s notable results, along with more on the tournament’s most intriguing storylines.
