Seeded stars Taylor Frits, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Jannik Sinner all won their matches to progress to the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Fourth-seeded Jannik Sinner swept aside Sebastian Baez 6-0, 6-1, 6-3 on Friday morning to secure his spot in the fourth round. “I loved the conditions today because there was no wind and no sun,” Sinner commented. “I felt great on the ball. I made the right decisions, and I used every chance I had.” The Italian finished with six aces and 34 winners.

Number seven seed Stefanos Tsitsipas signaled his intention as well, soundly defeating Luca Van Assche 6-3, 6-0, 6-4. He’ll face a tough challenger in the next round in the form of 12th seed Taylor Fritz, who defeated Fabian Marozsan 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. The previous day saw second seed Carlos Alcaraz secure a 6-4 6-7 (3) 6-3 7-6 (3) victory over Lorenzo Sonego. The reigning Wimbledon champion will be looking to unseat Australian Open title holder Novak Djokovic as he looks to become the number one ATP men’s singles player this season.
