Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Carla Suarez Navarro
(first match at 7 p.m. ET, Rod Laver)
Fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanksa is into the quarterfinals in Melbourne for the fifth time in six years after a three-set win over German Anna-Lena Friedsam, who suffered cramping and was visibly upset during the last two games of the match.
