It’s time for the quarter-finals at this year’s Australian Open, with reigning champions Novak Djokovic (36) and Aryna Sabalenka (25) both in action on a star-studded day’s play in Melbourne.

15:26 CET - That will be all from us today. Make sure you tune in tomorrow for the last set of quarter-finals, as we get a step closer to finding out who will be our champions in Melbourne.

15:21 CET - It wasn't as straightforward as the scoreline suggests, but Jannik Sinner (22) has beaten Andrey Rublev (26) 6-4, 7-6(5), 6-3 to reach his second Grand Slam semi-final, and his first ever at the Australian Open. He now gets the unenviable task of facing 10-time champion Novak Djokovic next.

Thoughts go out to Rublev though, who played a really good match, but has remarkably fallen at the quarter-final stage for the 10th time in a row. His wait for a place in a Grand Slam semi-final goes on.

14:50 CET - After nearly two hours on court, Jannik Sinner (22) is leading Andrey Rublev (26) 6-4, 7-6(5). With time ticking past 00:50 in Melbourne, the Italian fourth seed will be keen to get the job done as soon as possible.

12:30 CET - Aryna Sabalenka's serene progression through the draw continues after a dominant 6-2, 6-3 win over Czechia's Barbora Krejcikova. The Belarusian moves into the semi-finals having dropped just 16 games in the opening five rounds. 

11:00 CET - After a mammoth day session, we could be in for a very late finish! The night session will begin shortly with reigning women's champion Aryna Sabalenka (25) taking on ninth seed Barbora Krejcikova (28). 

The second men's quarter-final of the day between Jannik Sinner (22) and Andrey Rublev (26) will then follow. 

10:35 CET - As he so often does, Novak Djokovic (36) finds some of his best tennis when he needs it most, battling past Taylor Fritz (26) in four sets 7-6(3), 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. A record-extending 48th Grand Slam semi-final for the Serb!

09:12 CET - Fritz has levelled the match at one set apiece after saving seven break points to come out on top 6-4. Who takes it from here? 

08:15 CET - World number one and defending champion Novak Djokovic (36) takes a marathon 84-minute opening set 7-6(3) against 12th seed Taylor Fritz (26).

The American will face either 2023 champion Aryna Sabalenka (25) or ninth seed Barbora Krejcikova (28) in the sem-finals.
