Scores and highlights from Day 6 of the Australian Open 2011. Here's a look at the final scores from men's and women's singles.

  • No. 1 Rafael Nadal def. Bernard Tomic, 6-2 7-5 6-3. The top-ranked player in the world entered Saturday's match with lingering flu symptoms, and he received a strong challenge from the 18-year-old Tomic. Nadal found himself down 4-0 in the second set before rallying. After the match, Nadal said, "I am sweating more than usual. I am more tired than usual when I'm playing. I don't know what's going on. I'm doing all that I can."
