Madison Keys into Open fourth round

Eighth seed Caroline Garcia battled into the last 16 of the Australian Open Saturday to set up clash with the risky Madison Keys for a place in the quarter-finals.

Returning to Melbourne Park after wrist surgery sidelined her from last year's Open, the 17th seed blasted her way into the fourth round with 29 winners and six aces on Margaret Court Arena.

Yet to drop a set through her first three matches, Keys's big hitting from the back of the court wore down the inexperienced Bogdan - playing in her maiden grand slam third round.

"Ana played great today and made me play my best tennis", Keys added.

Garcia was one of the most improved players on the women's circuit in 2017 and the Frenchwoman recovered after a mid-match slump to beat Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-3 5-7 6-2.

With the hard-fought win, Garcia - twice a title victor on tour a year ago - has spent exactly double the amount of time on court as Keys. Nadal, who lost last year's final to Roger Federer before going on to win the French Open and U.S. Open titles, reached the fourth round in Australia for the 11th time with a 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 victory.

"It's a good position for me to be in and I'm enjoying it".

Pliskova could meet another countryman in Barbora Strycova in the fourth round, if the 20th seed beats American qualifier Bernarda Pera later on Saturday. The Romanian top seed awaits the victor of Australian Ashleigh Barty's third-round clash with Japan's Naomi Osaka.
