The Australian Open has reached the quarter-final stage in the singles, with the men’s and women’s favourites still standing despite early exits for other top seeds.
Daniil Medvedev is aiming to win a second straight Grand Slam, but he will not be in quarter-final action until Wednesday.
However, women’s favourite Ashleigh Barty will be playing on Tuesday, with Australia’s home hope out to beat USA’s Jessica Pegula as she continues her bid for a first Grand Slam on home soil.

A day of four fascinating singles match-ups concludes with Gael Monfils taking on Matteo Berrettini, an encounter almost too difficult to call.
Monfils is enjoying a resurgence in form but could meet his match in Berrettini, last year’s Wimbledon finalist who is emerging as a force to be reckoned with on every surface.

Top match: Shapovalov out for bigger scalp

The assumption was that Alexander Zverev’s mettle would be tested against Rafael Nadal at the quarter-final stage, but the former fell a round earlier – and now it is Denis Shapovalov out to beat the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

Shapovalov raced past Zverev in three sets, 6-3 7-6 6-3, and after reaching the Australian Open quarter-finals for the first time, the 22-year-old Canadian will be aiming to beat Nadal for just a second time.
Nadal leads the head to head 3-1, and in his pursuit of Grand Slam No. 21 the 35-year-old will know Shapovalov could well take him the distance on Rod Laver Arena – an exciting match awaits.

Potential upset: Keys to keep run going?

Just three of the top 20 women’s seeds reached the quarter-finals, and as the second-highest female player remaining in the singles, BarboraKrejcikova will be looking to back-up her shock French Open triumph last year by going all the way in Melbourne.
The Czech faces unseeded MadisonKeys on Tuesday, the American who is in red-hot form after beating former Australian Open champion Sofia Kenin in the opening round and more recently breezing past eighth seed Paula Badosa 6-3 6-1 to reach the quarters.
