Highlights: Australian Open day six

Muguruza broke back twice but Hsieh, who works closely with former Australian Open tournament director Paul McNamee, ran away with the tiebreak 7-1.

Taiwanese veteran Hsieh Su-wei reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for only the second time yesterday, when she rolled past Agnieszka Radwanska at the Australian Open.

The 127th ranked 23-year-old who was a lucky loser surprised everyone including herself with the win and is now in the third round of a Grand Slam. However, the Spaniard, who made 43 unforced errors, refused to use either her own physical condition or the near-40C heat as an excuse.

"I think there are a lot of things that I need to get better at and improve on".

Djokovic urged tennis organizers to be more flexible about the rules for drink breaks, time between points and suspension of play when the conditions were bordering on risky.

"I played much better than I expected because of the foot". Nor did Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, one of the five seeded women's players who were eliminated on Day 4.

She also endured a major scare in her first round win over Destanee Aiava, in which she suffered an ankle injury and was behind 2-5 in the opening set before taking 11 of the last 13 games of the match.

She will next go up against world number 21 Angelique Kerber of Germany in the fourth round for a chance in the quarterfinals.

Kerber, who had a miserable time coping with the demands of being world No 1 past year, has hired Wim Fissette, the coach Jo Konta parted with at the end of last season.

Kerber has good memories here from 2016, when she pulled off a remarkable win in the final against Williams.

Sharapova came into the match with a 4-3 career lead in matches, but Kerber had won their past two matches, including at Wimbledon in 2014.

"During the match, I just forgot about it", she said.

Meanwhile, at the Paralympics of PyeongChang, the PDRK will send a delegation of 150, including athletes, says news agency Yonhap. An agreement to field a joint women's ice hockey team at the upcoming Games also drew criticism.

"At the beginning it was a little more hard because I was not sure how it was going to be, but after a few games, I just said that I had to be confident in my leg - and everything went pretty well".

Former No. 1-ranked Karolina Pliskova advanced to a third-round match against No. 29 Lucie Safarova.

Defending champion Federer was never troubled by France's Richard Gasquet, who has failed to take a set off him since 2011, as he steamed into the last 16 with a 6-2, 7-5, 6-4 win.

Chung beat fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev 5-7, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 in the third round on Rod Laver Arena.

"I obviously have to be more humble this time with my expectations because I haven't played for six months", said the 14th-seeded Djokovic, who played down the medical time out he took to receive a massage on his back and upper legs as just the tribulations of returning to the tour.
