MELBOURNE, Australia — So far the older guys are holding court against the new generation at the Australian Open.
On Saturday, 31-year-old Novak Djokovic beat 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov, 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0.
A day earlier, it was 32-year-old Rafael Nadal defeating 19-year-old Alex de Minaur, 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.
And on Sunday night, the elder statesman of the group, 37-year-old Roger Federer, faces 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas in a fourth-round match at Rod Laver Arena. It will be Federer’s 101st appearance on the tournament’s main show court — and Tsitsipas’s first.
“It’s great to see new faces and it’s great to see young players challenging the best players in the world,” Djokovic said. “I salute that and I respect it a lot.”
All they need is more experience playing big matches against big players at big venues.
Shapovalov got that Saturday.
“It was a little bit difficult for me in terms of it’s not every day I’m playing a match against a top guy like this on a stage like that,” Shapovalov said. “Definitely I was a little bit nervous, a little bit tight on everything, just hesitating a little bit.”
The jitters went away eventually and he ended up taking a set from Djokovic.
“That’s when I kind of loosened up and started playing my tennis, I just started really just enjoying myself,” Shapovalov said. “I told myself, ‘Look, you’re already down two sets, so just have fun out there.’ That’s where I felt like I really started to play my game and really showed what I can do.”
The win guaranteed that Djokovic would keep his No. 1 ranking after the Australian Open. Nadal could have taken the top ranking if he won the tournament and Djokovic lost before the fourth round. Djokovic will next face No. 15 Daniil Medvedev.
The women’s No. 1, Simona Halep, beat one Williams sister Saturday and now will face the other. Halep, last year’s runner-up at Melbourne Park, reeled off six consecutive games in one stretch and ended up beating Venus Williams, 6-2, 6-3, in the third round.
Next for Halep is a showdown against 23-time major champion Serena Williams with a quarterfinal berth at stake.
After two tough three-set tussles in Australia, Halep had a much easier time of things Saturday and made only 12 unforced errors, while Venus made 33. Halep played with her left thigh taped, but moved around the court well.
For Venus, this is the fifth consecutive Grand Slam tournament she exits before the fourth round.
Serena Williams, a seven-time Australian Open champion, advanced to the fourth round with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Dayana Yastremska, 18, of Ukraine.
Williams consoled a tearful Yastremska at the net after the match, hugging her and saying, “Don’t cry.”
“She was amazing, she came out swinging,” Williams said later. “To be so young, she came out ready to go.”
The 16th-seeded Williams has now won 20 consecutive sets at Melbourne Park, having not dropped a set in her 2017 title run and winning three rounds here this year in straight sets. She did not play here in 2018 following the birth of her daughter.
In other women’s matches, fourth-seeded Naomi Osaka, the reigning United States Open champion, avoided slipping out of the tournament with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 victory over Hsieh Su-wei. Sixth-seeded Elina Svitolina came back from 3-0 down in the third set to beat Zhang Shuai, 4-6, 6-4, 7-5. Madison Keys, Garbiñe Muguruza and Karolina Pliskova also advanced.
In the men’s draw, eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori got through the third round in straight sets against João Sousa, getting a bit of relief after his first two matches at Melbourne Park went to five sets. No. 4 Alexander Zverev, No. 11 Borna Coric and No. 16 Milos Raonic also won.B:
