Novak Djokovic’s Australian Open campaign is over after the six-time champion went down in straight sets to Hyeon Chung in the fourth round.

Meanwhile, fifth seed Dominic Thiem was rolled by American Tennys Sandgren in a five-set marathon. There were no hiccups for Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych, however, who both stormed into the quarters with straight-sets wins.

In the women’s draw, Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Angelique Kerber and Madison Keys all advanced.
