Top-ranked Ash Barty will continue her bid to break a long Australian Open drought when she plays No. 60-ranked Amanda Anisimova in the fourth round.

The 20-year-old American won a tune-up tournament before the year's first major and has a career-long eight-match winning streak in main draw matches. Among other fourth-round women's matches, two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka is taking on French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova. Rafael Nadal will continue his quest for a men's record 21st Grand Slam singles title when he takes on French left-hander Adrian Mannarino in the fourth round.
