Di Minaur no match for Fognini

Alex Di Minaur has bowed out of the Australian Open after being defeated in straight sets.

Di Minaur was knocked over by Italian Fabio Fognini 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 who advances into the fourth round.

Fognini did not show any hangover from a 16-14 final set thriller in his previous match particularly damaging with his forehand.

Ash Barty is now the only Aussie hope left in the singles draw looking to become the first Australian female to win the grand slam since 1978.
