Jo Konta and Dan Evans are happily having to delay their arrivals in Melbourne for the Australian Open after making good progress in the main warm-up event over in New South Wales.
British No 3 Evans scored a particularly good win at the Sydney International on Wednesday morning when he came back to upset world No 37 Marcel Granollers of Spain 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Evans, who lost all three of his singles at the Hopman Cup last week, is now in the quarter-finals. He was left awaiting the winner of the match between top seed Dominic Thiem and Portugal's Gastao Elias.

Konta, who will be trying to emulate last year's semi-final showing in Melbourne, has gone one step further in the concurrent women's event.
In the semi-final she will face Eugenie Bouchard after the British No 1 defeated Russia's Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 7-5.
Bouchard saw off world No 27 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2, 6-3 to advance to the semi-finals.
At a set and a break up, Konta, seeded sixth here, appeared to be coasting towards a last four place but her Russian opponent broke back immediately and then again to establish a 4-2 lead.
But Konta, who made 31 winners and 30 unforced errors, dug deep to win five of the next six games for the 6-3, 7-5 triumph in less than an hour and three-quarters.
