Australian Open 2016: Thursday results, highlights, scores recap from Melbourne. Shortly preview after a day 1, day 2 2016 Aus Open that was filled with upsets, Day 3 and day 4 Jan 21 start 11 am at the 2016 Melbourne Australian Open schedule released.

Most of the top players in the men’s singles round and women’s single round draws managed to advance to the 4th round.

Lleyton Hewitt headlines the night program as second-round action continues on Thursday. Lleyton Hewitt’s 20th and final Australian Open will continue with another prime-time clash on Thursday, with the 34-year-old’s second-round match against eighth seed David Ferrer of Spain headlining the night session at Rod Laver Arena on day four.

 

The Thursday Rod Laver Arena schedule features Ana Ivanovic, Garbine Muguruza and a meeting between men’s second seed Andy Murray and Australia’s Sam Groth in the day session, while Angelique Kerber and Bernard Tomic headline the Margaret Court Arena night program.

Gael Monfils, Victoria Azarenka and Madison Keys feature on the day bill at MCA.

Several top seeds turned in fine performances on Day 4 of the 2016 Australian Open, but much of the focus was on Lleyton Hewitt, who closed out his singles career in losing fashion before his adoring fans in Melbourne.

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.
