MELBOURNE: Tomas Berdych is back in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open for the seventh time after a 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 win over Fabio Fognini.
Berdych has been this far at Melbourne Park for seven of the last eight years. The only time he’s failed to reach at least the quarters was last year when he lost in the third round to Roger Federer.
The 19-seeded Czech veteran could play Federer again in the next round if Federer wins his fourth-round match against Marton Fucsovics later Monday.
Berdych is 6-19 against Federer and hasn’t beaten the Swiss star since 2013.
