Grand Slam win for Roger Federer as Maria Sharapova advances in Australia Open

Written by on January 22, 2016

Grand slamRoger Federer reached the last sixteen at the Australian Open after proving too strong for Grigor Dimitrov in their highly-anticipated third-round match. The Swiss third seed won six-four, three-six under the Rod Laver Arena roof as rain halted play on the outside courts.

It brought four-time champion Federer his three hundredth Grand Slam match win.

World Number five, Maria Sharapova battled past Lauren Davis into the Australian Open fourth round earlier today, and edges closer to another showdown with arch-rival Serena Williams later today.

The Russian fifth seed needed two hours, fourteen minutes to finally dismantle the hard-working American six-one, six-seven under a closed roof at Rod Laver Arena.
