Stefanos Tsitsipas in men's singles and Iga Swiatek in women's singles on Friday both advanced to round 4 in the Australian Open 2023.
World no. 3 Tsitsipas of Greece bested Dutch player Tallon Griekspoor with three straight sets of 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 in Rod Laver Arena.
Tsitsipas will take on Italian Jannik Sinner in the 4th round game.
After eliminating Sinner last year in the quarterfinal round at Melbourne Park, the 24-year-old will have a rematch with the Italian.
"For sure I have a good memory from last year. I'm sure he's much better prepared this time," Tsitsipas said. "I hope I can deliver a good sort of level of game 'cause it was close last time. I think it was in three sets, yes, but it was close."
Stefanos Tsitsipas, three-time Australian Open semifinalist, has yet to achieve his maiden Grand Slam title in men's singles.

World no. 1 Iga Swiatek of Poland eased past Spain’s Cristina Bucsa with 6-0, 6-1 sets in Round 3 on Friday.
The top seed conceded just 19 points during her resounding victory at Margaret Court Arena.
"I'm glad I was really disciplined and focused on my tactics, I felt like I'm a little bit in the flow," said the three-time Grand Slam winner.
Swiatek will take on Kazakh Elena Rybakina in Round 4.
