Venus Williams has advanced to the quarterfinals at Melbourne Park for the second time in three years, beating Mona Barthel 6-3, 7-5. Williams broke Barthel's serve in the 11th game of the second set and served out, clinching the 1-hour, 36-minute fourth-rounder on her first match point. Williams, who lost the 2003 final at Melbourne Park to her younger sister Serena, will next play Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who beat fellow Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets earlier Sunday.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Top-seeded Andy Murray is out of the Australian Open, the five-time finalist losing in four sets in a Sunday afternoon upset to Mischa Zverev.

Rafael Nadal had a good, hard look at the future before pulling a few tricks from his past to hold it back - for now. The 14-time Grand Slam winner, still recovering from a couple of months off with an injured left wrist, rallied for a 4-6, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-2 win over German teenager Alexander Zverev on Saturday to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open. The 30-year-old Spaniard finished stronger in the 4-hour, 6-minute match on Rod Laver Arena as Zverev, widely touted as a Grand Slam champion of the future, tightened up with cramping and nerves.

Bob and Mike Bryan are retiring from Davis Cup play after 14 years representing the United States. ''We've been blessed to play for two amazing captains, Patrick McEnroe and Jim Courier, and we are extremely grateful for their leadership and trust. The Bryans have the most victories by any doubles team in U.S. Davis Cup history, going 24-5, including 4-0 in 2007 when the U.S. won the title.


The Latest: You snooze, you lose: Dimitrov OK with timing (Yahoo Sports)

Grigor Dimitrov had his first win on the main court at Melbourne Park, so he didn't mind that the match started two minutes before midnight. The No. 15-seeded Dimitrov beat No. 18 Richard Gasquet in straight sets and finished the third-round match at precisely 2 a.m. Then there was a list of things to do, including a news conference, more stretching and exercising, and he was aiming to get to bed by 5 a.m. Dimitrov reached the quarterfinals in Australia and the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2014, but hasn't been beyond the fourth round at a major since.


Venus focused on tennis, not age, in record 73rd Grand Slam (Yahoo Sports)

One could never accuse Venus Williams of being sensitive about her age. Not the way she keeps making self-deprecating jokes about it at the Australian Open. Case in point: Asked about the Australian great Margaret Court after her third-round win over China's Duan Yingying at Margaret Court Arena on Friday, Williams said she had a letter from the 24-time major winner hung on the wall in her room as a memento.


'Crazy' good: Federer into 4th round at Australian Open (Yahoo Sports)

Roger Federer relaxed into the chair, his arms folded across his chest in a casual, confident way, and just savored a vintage Australian Open performance. The 17-time Grand Slam champion, seeded a lowly-by-his-standards 17th after spending six months on the sidelines to let his left knee heal, only needed 90 minutes to beat Tomas Berdych 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 in the third round on Friday. This was against a highly-credentialed pro, seeded No. 10, who beat Federer in the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 2010 on the way to the final.


The Latest: French Open champion Muguruza into 4th round (Yahoo Sports)

French Open champion Garbine Muguruza has advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Anastasia Sevastova. The pair had played twice before - both on hardcourts last year - and Muguruza won them both in straight sets. The seventh-seeded Muguruza will next play Sorana Cirstea, who beat American Alison Riske 6-2, 7-6 (2) earlier Friday.

PRAGUE (AP) -- Karolina Pliskova and Barbora Strycova will lead defending champion Czech Republic against Spain in the first round of Fed Cup.


Djokovic out in 2nd round, loses to Istomin in Melbourne (Yahoo Sports)

It started badly for Novak Djokovic, who needed 24 serves, six break-point saves and 15 minutes just to hold his first game in the second round. This was not the close-to-invincible Djokovic that fans were used to seeing at the Australian Open, where he has won a record-equaling six titles, including five in the previous six years. In his earliest loss at a Grand Slam tournament since 2008, Djokovic lost 7-6 (8), 5-7, 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 on Thursday to No. 117-ranked Denis Istomin, a 30-year-old wild-card entry from Uzbekistan.
