    Tipsarevic, Almagro, Janowicz highlight Friday play Eighth seed Janko Tipsarevic is back on court to face fellow seed Julien Benneteau for a spot in the round of 16. Tenth seed Nicolas Almagro is also in third-round action, set to take on 24th seed Jerzy Janowicz.

    (8) Janko Tipsarevic vs. (32) Julien Benneteau

    World No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic looks to break a 1-1 series tie with world No. 38 Julien Benneteau. Friday signals their first hard-court meeting.

    Tipsarevic advanced to the third round by virtue of his five-sets victory over Slovakia's Lukas Lacko. The 28-year-old surrendered a two-sets-to-love edge before sealing the win, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 7-5. He is seeking his first round of 16 in Melbourne.

    Benneteau is through to round three after rallying to upend compatriot Edouard Roger-Vasselin in four sets, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6(5), 7-6(5). The veteran Frenchman will attempt to make his first round of 16 at the Grand Slam.

    (10) Nicolas Almagro vs. (24) Jerzy Janowicz

    Tenth seed Nicolas Almagro made the third round following his straight-sets dismissal of fellow Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver. The world No. 11 tallied 10 aces and 26 winners through to a 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 success in 101 minutes. Almagro looks to reach his fourth consecutive round of 16 in Melbourne.

    Janowicz survived an extended second-round match with India's Somdev Devvarman on Wednesday. The 22-year-old Pole rallied from two sets down to seal a five-set victory, 6-7(10), 3-6, 6-1, 6-0, 7-5. Janowicz is bidding for his first round of 16 at a Grand Slam event.
