Saturday's weather: Sunny and high of 81.

What Happened?

Last Aussies bid farewell. Local favorites Bernard Tomic and Sam Stosur headlined Saturday's night session, falling to Rafael Nadal and Petra Kvitova, respectively.

Other top seeds march on. No. 2 Vera Zvonareva and No. 3 Kim Clijsters moved through to the Round of 16, while No. 4 Robin Soderling, No. 5 Andy Murray and No. 7 David Ferrer were men's winners.

Isner falls in five. The 20th-seeded American lost a 4-6, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (2), 9-7 slugfest to Marin Cilic in 4 hours, 33 minutes. It marked Isner's first five-set match since last year's historic Wimbledon marathon against Nicolas Mahut.

Unsung and unseeded players stay alive. 20-year-old Canadian qualifier Milos Raonic boomed 31 aces to upset No. 10 Mikhail Youzhny in four sets. Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov, 22, ousted No. 13 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in five.

They Said It

"It's blown out of proportion; I've got four or five people but my brother's playing here too so they're here for him as well. And your mum doesn't really count as part of your team!"
