AUSTRALIAN OPEN DAY 4 HIGHLIGHTS

Top-10 seeds Stan Wawrinka, David Goffin and Garbine Muguruza were all bounced out on Day 4, but big names Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova all advanced.

Top-ranked Aussie woman Ashleigh Barty came from a set down against Camila Giorgi to snare a third-round berth.
