Anisimova.

Rafael Nadal had a solid performance winning 7-6(14), 6-2, 6-2 against Adrian Mannarino.

14th seed Canadian Denis Shapovalov had one of the biggest upsets of the tournament as he knocked out third seed Alexander Zverev 6-3, 7-6(5), 6-3 to make his first quarter-finals.

Matteo Berrettini defeated Pablo Carreno Busta 7-5, 7-6(4), 6-4.

17th seed Gael Monfils beats Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 7-5, 7-6(4), 6-3 to make the quarter-finals.

Nick Kyrgios-Thanasi Kokkinakis knock out 15th seed Gonzalo Escobar-Ariel Behar to move into the men’s doubles quarter-finals.

Sania Mirza-Rajeev Ram registered a 7-6(6), 6-4 win over Matwe Middelkoop-Ellen Perez to enter the last eight.

Maria Sakkari, on the other hand, was upset as she fell 6-7(0), 3-6 to 21st seed Jessica Pegula in the fourth round.

Madison Keys started the day with an upset 6-3, 6-1 win over eighth seed Paula Badosa to make the quarter-finals for the first time since 2018.

Rafael Nadal, who says he is having “a very special week” after coming back from an injury-ravaged 2021, will take on Shapovalov, who upset Zverev.

But the whole of Australia will be watching their idol Barty to see whether she can keep the Melbourne Park party going in search of a maiden triumph to add to her Roland Garros and Wimbledon crowns.

The top seed is now 8-0 for the season after winning the Adelaide warm-up event and in irresistible form. She had not lost her vaunted serve for 57 games over six matches before Anisimova managed to break it once.
