Back's fine as Federer serves up warning to rivals

21 Enero 2018

Roger Federer has weighed in on the ongoing pay row between the players and administrators, saying tournament organisers could "pay more".

Madison Keys is through to the fourth round of the Australian Open after starting Saturday's program on Margaret Court Arena with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Ana Bogdan. "Are you a witch or a vampire?"

He finally made inroads on the Federer serve at 3-3 in the second, when the Swiss missed a first delivery at 30-30.

With the finishing line edging closer Federer appeared to momentarily lose his concentration as Gasquet brought up his first break point of the match with the 36-year-old serving with a break advantage at 4-2. "He's a little bit afraid of me", he said.

"They had to go to the toilet".

The opening stand set the platform for skipper Shane Watson to blast his side to victory with an unbeaten 49 from 28 balls.

Seb Gotch, brought into the side for departing international Luke Wright, chipped in with 31 runs from 25 balls but the Stars' big guns didn't fire.

Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, had issues with the heat but still advanced along with No. 19 Tomas Berdych, No. 21 Albert Ramos and No. 5 Dominic Thiem, who rallied to beat 190th-ranked American qualifier Denis Kudla 6-7 (6), 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-3.

His next opponent will be Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff on Thursday when temperatures in Melbourne are expected to climb to about 40 degrees.

The Swiss lost the next three games but spared the unpredictably of a tie break, converting his third match point after a touch of fortune.

In his 20-year professional career, Federer has mastered the art of giving interviews.

It was del Potro's first trip to Melbourne since 2014 - he missed the 2015 and 2016 tournaments with wrist injuries and withdrew from last year's event due to a lack of preparation time.

The fan favourite said he was happy to avoid the sweltering daytime heat, although hoped he would be up to the challenge should he draw an early start.

The World No. 2 outclassed Gasquet 6-2 7-5 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena to advance to the fourth round, where he'll meet Hungarian Marton Fucsovics.

He held three set points with Struff saving one before Federer sealed the result.

Her 6-3, 6-4 first-round victory over Paraguay's Veronica Cepede Royg on Tuesday will see her writing a cheque for $700 already - she served seven aces.
