Roger Federer joins calls for greater Slam prize money

Roger Federer he beat Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff to reach the Australian Open third round.

Maria Sharapova, in contrast, laid down her title credentials with dominant win against 14th seed Anastasija Sevastova.

World No.1 Simona Halep on Thursday overcame an ankle injury to advance past Canada's Eugenie Bouchard 6-2, 6-2 into the Australian Open third round.

"I was struggling with everything, not the knee especially, the knee was still handling well", said Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam victor.

"I feel the pain but I didn't think about it". "The moment that happens, there's not the same increases anymore, so players have to rally, get back together again, put in the effort", said Federer.

Any player hoping to stop him retaining his title and claiming a 20th grand slam will have to be pretty special on this evidence.

He lost the first set before Monfils began struggling in the second and was heard at one point telling the umpire: "I'm exhausted and dizzy".

Blisters from the hot court surface didn't help Muguruza in a 7-6 (1), 6-4 loss to 88th-ranked Hsieh Su-wei, who has been No. 1 in doubles but had a career-high ranking of 23rd in singles. "Really tough conditions - brutal". "I'm not at 100 percent but building". "I have a lot of faith and self-belief".

The 36-year-old Swiss turned the evening clash on packed Rod Laver Arena into an exhibition as he struck 41 winners to breeze past a willing but outclassed Bedene 6-3 6-4 6-3.

"My feet are burning", she said.

"We both suffered on the court today", Djokovic said after the match.

Karolina Pliskova, the women's sixth seed and one of the favorites to win, will be taking on No. 29 Lucie Safarova.

Alexander Zverev, the fourth seed, booked a third-round meeting with Hyeon Chung of South Korea after beating fellow German Peter Gojowczyk 6-1 6-3 4-6 6-3.
