AUSTRALIA OPEN: Federer Brushes Fritz Aside To Reach Last 16



ROGER Federer celebrated his 100th match at the Australian Open today by giving young American Taylor Fritz a centre court schooling to reach the last 16.

Six-times champion Federer was in devastating touch against the talented 21-year-old, breaking him four times while not giving an inch on serve in the 6-2 7-5 6-2 masterclass at Rod Laver Arena.

The third seed, bidding for a third straight title at Melbourne Park, reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for a record-extending 63rd time in the professional era.

The former world number one will take on Greek young gun Stefanos Tsitsipas for a place in the quarter-finals as he continues his quest for a 21st Grand Slam title.
