Karolina Pliskova battled into the Australian Open fourth round with a 7-6(6) 7-5 win over Lucie Safarova.

"It's tough to play another Czech player especially as we are Fed Cup team mates," Pliskova said on Margaret Court Arena. "It's always close but I served well and that's the key for me."

Pliskova will next meet either 20th seed Barbora Strycova or Bernarda Pera.
