2013 Australian Open 4th Round Mens Draw

2013 Australian OpenWe are now down to the last 16 at this years Australian Open.

The biggest star to exit in the third round was Juan Martin Del Potro. The Argentine 6th seed was being touted as being back to his US Open winning best, but was taken out in five sets by Jeremy Chardy. Del Potro had been a possible candidate for quarter final opponent for Andy Murray, who easily negotiated his way to the third round with victory over Ricardas Berankis.

Another possible Andy Murray quarter finalist was 12th seed Marin Cilic, but he also lost to 21st Andreas Seppi. Seppi will now play Chardy in the 4th round on Monday and the winner of that will play the winner of Murray vs Simon, which is also played on Monday. Simon had to endure a 5 set thriller against fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils in round 3 eventually winning 8-6 in the 5th set.

Roger Federer will face 13th seed Milos Raonic in round 4 on Monday and Novak Djokovic will take on 15th seed Stanislas Wawrinka on Sunday. 4th seed David and 5th seed Tomas Berdych continue to weave their way through the draw without much fuss and surely will offer some stern resistance to Djokovic winning a third consecutive OZ open title.
