- Denis Istomin backed up his five-set defeat of six-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic in another battle, getting the better of Pablo Carreno Busta.
- Rafael Nadal faced his sternest test yet, having to come from a set down to better Alexander Zverev in five sets
- Aussie hopes remained alive thanks to Daria Gavrilova who came though a tough fight with Timea Bacsinszky.
