Montreal’s Felix Auger-Aliassime has advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Auger-Aliassime defeated Britain’s Dan Evans in straight sets 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 this morning at the Grand Slam event.

He will face the winner of the third-round match between Russia’s Andrey Rublev and Croatia’s Marin Cilic.

The 21-year-old Auger-Aliassime also made it to the fourth round at Melbourne Park last year.

Auger-Aliassime and Evans had played once before, with the Briton winning at Melbourne 2 Australia in 2021.

Canada’s Denis Shapovalov earlier earned a spot in the fourth round of the Australian Open by beating American Reilly Opelka.

In doubles action, Ottawa’s Gabriela Dabrowski got off to a perfect start alongside partner Giuliana Olmos of Mexico after the sixth-seeded duo won their first-round match against Columbia’s Camila Osorio and France’s Clara Burel 6-2, 6-3.
