  1. - - Stephens was beaten just a couple of weeks ago in the Brisbane quarter-finals by Serena Williams but she may well get the chance to avenge that loss on Wednesday in the Australian Open quarter-finals as she awaits the winner between Serena and Russian 14th seed Maria Kirilenko. Full women's drawsheet

  2. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 6-3 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Stephens flirts with danger as she retreats to passive play, but eventually draws the error from Jovanovski (a forehand into the net). She goes on to earn a first match point when Jovanovski sends a forehand long and slightly wide. And only one match point is needed as a big first serve is returned into the net from the Serb

  3. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 6-5 - BREAK! Stephens finds consecutive forehand winners down the line to break the Jovanovski serve to love and leave herself serving for the match after the change of ends. Will she be able to keep her nerves in check though and serve it out? This is for a place in her first Grand Slam quarter-final

  4. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 2-3 - BREAK! This match is seriously tight now which is not that surprising given that a first Grand Slam quarter-final berth is what is at stake for both players. And Stephens gets things back on track with yet another break as Jovanovski hits a backhand error

  5. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 1-3 - BREAK! There is a tricky shadow across the Hisense court now and it seems to unsettle both players as Jovanovski earns herself two break points only to squander the first with a backhand well wide across court. She does re-establish her break advantage at the second attempt, however, when Stephens pulls a cross court bakchand of her own wide

  6. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 1-2 - BREAK! Stephens runs around the ball and batters a forehand winner down the line to grab the immediate break back and keep herself in the match

  7. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 0-2 - BREAK! Jovanovski is just playing better and better as she earns herself points for an early break in this final set. Again though she only needs the one, breaking with an inside-out forehand winner. Stephens really needs to do something to stop to rot here - she was broken three times in the second set and now already once in this third set

  8. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-6 - SET! After a pretty poor first set, Jovanovski hs really turned this match around, finding an off-forehand winner across court to seal the second set at the very first attempt. This one will go to a decider

  9. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-4 - BREAK! Jovanovski comes through another battling game as she re-establishes her break advantage in this second set - Stephens putting a backhand into the net after a solid cross court backhand from the Serb

  10. - - STEPHENS 6-1 3-3 - Jovanovski has completely let Stephens off the hook, an error handing the American an immediate break back point, before the Serb ran round the ball and puts forehand into the net to concede her break advantage

  11. - - STEPHENS 6-1 2-3 - BREAK! Jovanovski is playing much better in this second set and has earned herself a break. She has cut out the early errors of the first set and is even pushing Stephens around the baseline, eventually drawing the error from the American, a backhand long.

  12. - - STEPHENS 6-1 - SET! Solid and nothing more has been needed from Stephens as she wraps up the first set for just the loss of just one game, drilling a forehand return of serve winner to seal the set

  13. - - STEPHENS 3-0 - BREAK! It continues to be a nervy start from Jovanovski as Stephens makes her play one more ball at the net than she wants to. And it results in the error from the Serb, her forehand volley ending up in the net, to concede her serve for the second time

  14. - - STEPHENS 1-0 - BREAK! American 29th seed Stephens has made a blistering start to her clash with Jovanovski over on Hisense, breaking in the very first game of the match
