Tomas Berdych advanced to the fourth round of the Australian Open for the fourth consecutive year with a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 win over qualifier Damir Dzumhur on Friday.

Dzumhur, the first man from Bosnia and Herzegovina to play singles in a Grand Slam, was cheered on by a vocal group of supporters from the Balkans region who now live in Melbourne.

Berdych made it to the quarterfinals last year, losing to eventual champion Novak Djokovic.

The No.7 Berdych is again in Djokovic's half of the draw, but the two cannot meet until the semifinals.
