In the cool of the evening on day six - after a three-day heatwave that scorched the field and common-sense thinking - Federer took under two hours to beat Richard Gasquet for the 17th time in 19 matches.

Former British tennis player Greg Rusedski was impressed by the great Roger Federer's movement during his Australian Open third-round clash.

As reported by the Daily Telegraph, Federer was very complimentary of his opponent after the match.

"I think the last 12 days was more than what I could have dreamed coming here", Wawrinka said.

He has beaten the Spaniard in all five career meetings, including in straight sets in the fourth round at the French Open previous year.

"We had a good agreement, in my opinion, that made the Grand Slams happy and the players pretty happy and it seems like that has run its course".

The Swiss maestro moved into the last 16 with a commanding straight sets win over Frenchman Richard Gasquet on Saturday with his serving game a feature.

As reported by the Daily Telegraph, after her victory, Halep, who has never gone beyond the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, said: "I felt the ball pretty well, it's always tough to play her as she hits the ball tough and plays close to the baseline". At the same time, I was pleased.

Morgan Stanley earned $686 million, or 29 cents a share, down from $1.67 billion, or 81 cents a share, from a year earlier. However, like Goldman Sachs earnings showed Wednesday, Morgan Stanley's trading revenues were disappointing.

"There's no reason for that right now, I think".

Now if we can just get Will into the commentary box to call a match alongside Henri Leconte, we'll really be in business. "We both played a good level", he said, "so it was fun".

I knew I wanted to use the medical time-out because I needed it but at the same time I knew it was nothing major that can potentially raise the question mark on whether I can continue playing or not.

"Nothing else is on my mind".

The three-time Grand Slam victor crashed out in straight sets to American Tennys Sandgren, ranked 97th in the world.

The German had taken a 2-1 lead at the end of the third set and was looking relatively comfortable but completely lost his head as Chung staged a magnificent comeback to end the game at 5-7 7-6 2-6 6-3 6-0.

Madison Keys is through to the fourth round of the Australian Open after starting Saturday's program on Margaret Court Arena with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Ana Bogdan.
