Milos Raonic is through to the fourth round having beaten Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets.

Milos Raonic has equalled his best ever performance in a Grand Slam by booking his place in the fourth round of the Australian Open.

The Canadian beat 17th seed Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets 7-6 6-3 6-4.

A close first set saw the 13th seed edge out his German opponent in a tie-break, before single breaks of serve in the second and third sets were enough to allow him victory.

Kohlschreiber struggled with his serve, getting just 52% of his first serves in and recording three double faults.

By contrast, Raonic was mighty on serve, smashing 22 aces past Kohlschreiber and not allowing his opponent a single break point.

The win sets up an encounter with the winner of the match currently underway between Bernard Tomic and Roger Federer.
