Australian Open: Roger Federer beats Marton Fucsovics in straight sets

Defending champion Roger Federer eased through to the Australian Open quarter-finals with a straight-set win over Hungary's Marton Fucsovics.

The 19-time Grand Slam winner is yet to lose a set at Melbourne Park this year, seeing off world number 80 Fucsovics 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 6-2.

Second seed Federer, 36, will face Czech Tomas Berdych in the last eight, who he beat in last year's third round.

"I am sure he wants to make me pay for that one," said Federer.

"I saw his matches, he is standing up hitting big shots and I am glad he's back.
