MELBOURNE, Australia —

Four-time champion Roger Federer advanced to the fourth round at the Australian Open with a 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-1 win Saturday over Bernard Tomic, the last Aussie in the draw.

Federer broke the 20-year-old Tomic's in the first game of the match, ending a run of 76 consecutive service games held by Tomic, who won his first ATP tournament last week at the Sydney International.

The No. 2-ranked Federer, who has won a record 17 major titles, also beat Tomic in the fourth round of last year's tournament.
