The WTA stars ventured off the court quite a bit on Sunday, including a Madison Keys autographs session.
Victoria Azarenka hit the Australian Open Social Shack to meet fans and answer their questions.
Outside she got the chance to take pictures and sign autographs with those fans - including this one...
... who also got the opportunity to meet former Top 25 player Jarmila Gajdosova in the WTA booth.
Gajdosova has two WTA titles, a career-high of No.25 and has been to the second week of majors twice.
Here it is - Garbiñe Muguruza with eight-week-old Remi, a puppy in training for Guide Dogs Victoria.
The on-court action was very strong too. Li Na stormed into the quarters with a 59-minute victory.
An injury-hampered Serena Williams just couldn't survive though, falling victim to Ana Ivanovic.
Ivanovic had never defeated a World No.1 in a complete match before - she did this time, 46 63 63.
Williams met the press afterwards. She will have to wait until Roland Garros for her 18th Grand Slam...
The fourth round wrapped up at night as Eugenie Bouchard outlasted Casey Dellacqua in three sets.
Bouchard is the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal since 1992 - before she was born.
