Australian Open 2014 schedule and TV coverage for Sunday's matches

Matt King

Men's No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic and women's No. 1 seed Serena Williams will get the round of 16 started on Sunday.

The third round of the 2014 Australian Open is in the books, and there's plenty of top seeds left standing. While heat has been the biggest headline this year, we've had some exciting matches, and as we enter the fourth round, they'll only get better. The fourth round gets underway on Sunday in Australia, and matches will be on T.V. in the U.S. starting Saturday night.

Novak Djokovic, the No. 2 seed on the men's side, will be in action on the day against what many believe will be his first real competition of the tournament in the No. 15-seeded Italian, Fabio Fognini. Djokovic easily downed Denis Istomin in his last match, while Fognini fought off the unseeded-but-always-tough Sam Querrey without issue.

No. 8 seed Stanislas Wawrinka, who some think has the best chance to best Djokovic before the finals this year, will be taking on No. 17 seed Tommy Robredo. Most figured Wawrinka would be playing No. 9 Richard Gasquet, but Robredo downed Gasquet in four sets, 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6, in the third round.

No. 3 seed David Ferrer and No. 7 seed Tomas Berdych will also be in action, taking on unseeded Florian Mayer and No. 19 seed Kevin Anderson, respectively.

For the women, No. 1 seed Serena Williams will be facing her first significant competition of the tournament. Most feel Williams has an easier path to the semifinals and finals than her biggest competition, No. 2 seed Victoria Azarenka. But Williams should have a tougher time dealing with No. 14 seed Ana Ivanovic than the players she's been dominating of late.

Television coverage will be provided by ESPN and the Tennis Channel. ESPN will continue broadcasting the event on its ESPN2 network, beginning at 9 p.m. ET Saturday night and running through 2 a.m. After an hour break, they will pick up at 3 a.m. and run through 6 a.m. The Tennis Channel will carry coverage from 7 p.m. through 9 p.m. There's also live streaming from the Australian Open website here, if you qualify.
