MELBOURNE, Australia -- Day 10 of the Australian Open produced plenty of good tennis.

Roger Federer continued to play at a high level, beating Andy Murray to advance to his 11th consecutive semifinal here. Grigor Dimitrov, playing his first Grand Slam quarterfinal, impressed in a competitive loss to a fired-up Rafael Nadal, who gets Federer in Friday's blockbuster semifinal. And Agnieszka Radwanska put on a show in an upset of two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka.

Here are some of our favorite photos from Day 10 of the Australian Open.
