January 21 Australian Open 2016 Thursday results, highlights, scores recap from Melbourne. Shortly after a Day 1,2 2016 Aus Open that was filled with upsets, Day 3 and day 4 at the 2016 Melbourne Australian Open rounds largely stuck to the script, as most of the top players in the men’s, women’s singles and doubles draws managed to advance to the third and 4th round.

 

Every seeded player in action on the men’s side was victorious Wednesday and Thursday, including No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Roger Federer, both of whom kept their title hopes alive with straight-set performances.

 

No. 1 Serena Williams and No. 5 Maria Sharapova cruised to dominant wins, but the women’s bracket wasn’t immune to upsets, as No. 6 Petra Kvitova fail to proceed. Aussie Daria Gavrilova in front of a raucous crowd at Margaret Court Arena Williams faces a potential quarterfinal date with the Russian, which would be a rematch of the 2015 final.
