Fed feeling fresh ahead of fourth round at Australian Open

8:34 am on 24 January 2010

Nine of the top ten seeds in the men's draw at the Australian Open have made it into the last 16 of the tournament.

Yesterday 10th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 9th seed Fernando Verdasco, 6th seed Nicolay Davydenko, 3rd seed Novak Djokovic and top seed Roger Federer all won their third round matches to advance to the last 16.

The draw now throws up some mouth watering contests before the quarterfinal round, with one of the most attractive the upcoming match between Federer and tournament 22nd seed and local hope Lleyton Hewitt.

The world number one has cruised through his matches so far and unfortunately for Hewitt says he's feeling in top shape heading into their fourth round clash.
