I enjoyed myself out there - Federer
Roger Federer felt Bernard Tomic brought the best out of him as he overcame the 20-year-old to book a place in the fourth round of the Australian Open.
Tomic gave another demonstration of his burgeoning talent on Rod Laver Arena but it was not enough as the world number two maintained his smooth progress through the draw with a 6-4 7-6 (7/5) 6-1 win.
"I thought it was a good match overall," said Federer, who is chasing a fifth Melbourne crown. "I thought the intensity was good, we had tough rallies and the crowd was great, so I enjoyed myself out there. I thought I played well. I had to bring my full repertoire, defence and offense, which I enjoy."
Federer will face Milos Raonic, a straight-sets victor over Philipp Kohlschreiber, in the last 16.
Third seed Andy Murray overcame Ricardas Berankis 6-3 6-4 7-5 and will next meet Frenchman Gilles Simon, who came through a remarkable clash with Gael Monfils 6-4 6-4 4-6 1-6 8-6 after four hours 43 minutes.
Both players struggled physically, with Simon first receiving treatment in the third set for a quadriceps problem. Later he also required a massage on his right forearm, while Monfils needed medical assistance to deal with blisters on his racket hand.
A good day for Murray was capped by the other results in his quarter, with Juan Martin Del Potro and Marin Cilic both going out.
Sixth seed Del Potro lost to Frenchman Jeremy Chardy after hitting back from two sets down. Chardy held his nerve to come through 6-3 6-3 6-7 (3/7) 3-6 6-3.
He will now play Andreas Seppi following his five-set win over 12th seed Cilic.
On a good day for France, Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga set up a mouthwatering last-16 clash. Ninth seed Gasquet beat Ivan Dodig 4-6 6-3 7-6 (7/2) 6-0, while seventh seed Tsonga cruised past Blaz Kavkic for the loss of seven games.
