Swiss tennis player Stan Wawrinka defeated Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-3 in all ill-tempered Men's Singles quarter-finals of the Australian Open on Tuesday.

France's Gael Monfils defeated his compatriot Lucas Pouille 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 to claim a spot in the US Open tennis semifinals on Tuesday night.

In the semis, Monfils will face Novak Djokovic who eased past Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 6-2 in their quarterfinals encounter with the Frenchman retiring hurt after two sets due to a knee injury. Djokovic has now reached the semi-finals or better at 10 straight US Opens, but his eye will undoubtedly be on the top prize up for grabs at the weekend.

American tennis player Jack Sock upset 2014 champion Marin Cilic of Croatia in surprisingly routine fashion, breezing into the US Open pre-quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 victory, while big names Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal also progressed to the Round of 16.

The 26th-seeded Sock, who is known for his huge forehand and big serve but not for a stellar return game, on Friday broke Cilic's serve four times in three sets to win in an hour and 41 minutes at the Louis Armstrong Stadium. Sock completely dominated his own service games, not facing a single break point in the contest.

In what turned out to be a wonderful Wednesday for the seeds at the Australian Open, all 14 of the men in action progressed to the third round, where quite a few of them will now run into each other before the week is out.

World no.1 Novak Djokovic was in action late in the evening, cruising in the opening couple of sets against Frenchman Quentin Halys, before having to battle back from an early break down and needing a tiebreak to progress in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2, 7-6 (3). Up next for the 5-time Australian Open champion is the 28th seed Andreas Seppi. The veteran Italian defeated American Denis Kudla in straight sets, 7-5, 6-4, 6-4.

A warm first day at the Australian Open saw the hottest seeds power their way into the second round with the minimum of fuss with top seed and five-time champion Novak Djokovic and third seed and four-time winner Roger Federer leading the way. Joining the leading duo in the round of 64 were Tomas Berdych, Kei Nishikori, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Marin Cilic. It wasn't a perfect day for the seeds though with 17th seed Benoit Paire and 22nd seed Ivo Karlovic biting the dust.

World no.1 Novak Djokovic is so far ahead of the pack heading into this season's Australian Open that pundits believe that they should just hand him the trophy right now and have everyone else playing for runner-up. Djokovic did little to dispel that myth today, brushing aside the challenge of Korean teenager Hyeon Chung, romping to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win. Up next for Djokovic is Frenchman Quentin Halys, who stunned Ivan Dodig of Croatia in four sets, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-5.
