Day 4 of the Australian Open was another wild one with five-setters galore, starts in action and some of the biggest upsets of week one. Let’s get to the numbers.

6 Number of American women that have reached the third round in Melbourne, from the 22 that started in the main draw. That’s the most of any nation in the tournament. They are: Serena Williams, Madison Keys, Sofia Kenin, Alison Riske, Coco Gauff and CiCi Bellis.

5 Number of American men that have reached the third round in Melbourne--that's the most for the Americans since 2009.

14 Number of consecutive wins notched by Andrey Rublev after his Day 4 victory over Yuichi Sugita. The Russian claimed titles in Doha and Adelaide prior to playing in the Australian Open.

8 Number of former Grand Slam champions in the third round of the women’s singles draw in Melbourne. Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka, Petra Kvitova, Serena Williams, Angelique Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza, Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep are all still in the hunt.

5-0 Garbiñe Muguruza’s record in three-setters in 2020 after her 6-3 3-6 6-3 victory over Ajla Tomljanovic on Day 4. The Spaniard has already won two three-setters in Melbourne.

2 Number of teenagers remaining in the singles draws at the Australian Open. 15-year-old Coco Gauff and 18-year-old Iga Swiatek are the only teenagers of the 12 who started the main draw (10 women’s singles, 2 men’s singles) to make it through.

78 John Isner leads all singles players with 78 aces through two rounds. Julia Goerges leads the women with 22 through two rounds.

8 The seed next to Matteo Berrettini’s name. The Italian became the highest seed to fall at this year’s Australian Open when he went down to American Tennys Sandgren in five sets on Day 3.

256 The current ranking of Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis. After his Day 4 win over Aljaz Bedene he became the lowest-ranked qualifier to reach the third round of the Australian Open since American Bobby Reynolds in 2005.

6-0 Karolina Pliskova improved her perfect start to 2020 with a straight-sets win over Laura Siegemund on Day 4. It’s nothing unusual for the Czech—she won her first 10 matches of 2019 before falling to Naomi Osaka in the Australian Open semifinals last year.

0 Number of double-faults tossed in by Alexander Zverev during his Day 4 win over Egor Gerasimov. He also tossed in nine aces and won 68 percent of his second-serve points. Zverev will face Fernando Verdasco in round three.

18 Countries represented in the men’s singles draw in the round of 32 at the Australian Open. USA leads all nations with 5, while Spain is second with four. Russia and Australia have three each.

21 Number of countries represented in the round of 32 in the women’s singles draw. USA leads all nations with six while Kazakhstan is second with three.

28 Total of nations represented in the women’s and singles round of 32 combined. USA leads all nations with 11. Russia has five combined, as does Spain.

1987 The last time a French woman did not make the third round at the Australian Open in the singles draw. It has happened again in 2019, for the first time in 32 years.

11 Number of seeds to fall out of the women’s singles draw in the first two rounds, the highest being No.11-seeded Aryna Sabalenka.

22 Number of seeds to reach the men’s singles third round in Australia. The highest seed to fall remains No.8-seeded Matteo Berrettini.
