Australian Open men’s roundup British hope Edmund powers through Carreno Busta downs Muller

Australian Open men’s roundup British hope Edmund powers through Carreno Busta downs Muller

Rafael Nadal faces a stiff challenge later on Margaret Court Arena when he takes on 25th ranked Damir Dzumhur, the first seed he has played in his comeback from a knee problem.

The high-quality encounter saw both players combining for a total of an outstanding 140 winners and just 83 errors, with just one point separating them in the statistics board. I thought I played well tonight. This tactic paid off as the Bulgarian captured the first set 7-6 (3).

Not since Mark Edmondson in 1976 has the Australian Open seen a home men's champion and the wait goes on as Kyrgios - whose best effort at this slam is his quarter-final appearance in 2015 - bowed out.

Despite not playing any competitive matches in his Aussie Open preparation, Nadal advanced through three rounds without dropping a set.

The match began brightly, with Dimitrov holding his first three service games of the match comfortably as Kyrgios fought off two break points in the sixth game to tie it up.

At just 15, Kostyuk was the youngest Melbourne Park third-round contestant since Martina Hingis in 1996, and was hailed after her previous win as "the future of tennis".

Nadal struggled at times against Schwartzman and needed 13 minutes to hold his serve in the second game of the fourth set when he saved five break points. "Hopefully next match I can do better still". For example, in the court four hours, trying to run every point, trying to do winners every point, is not easy to be focused four hours against him.

"He's eloquent in three languages ... but it's also little things, how he interacts with the press in the corridors, how he behaves when the cameras are off", she said.

The victor will play either Briton Kyle Edmund or Italian veteran Andreas Seppi.

Watch what Dimitrov did for Kyrgios in the video below.

"I still feel confident after losing that match".

At a set and a break up, with Kyrgios ranting at his support camp about the tension of his strings and threatening to implode, Dimitrov appeared in total control of the match. He had 36 aces, and some second serves recorded at faster than 202 kph (125 mph). "You never know when you're going to get an opportunity".

The crowd acknowledged the difference in Australia's best male player 12 months on and stood to applaud and embrace him for his game and the change in it.

"Even when I was serving for the match I just felt it was still not over".

'Yeah, the match in Brisbane probably because it's similar conditions, ' he said. "Once he finds his feet and he has more confidence, he's got a real chance at winning it". Despite a knee problem that bothered him since Brisbane, he managed to be competitive through all his matches and said he was prepared to play a fifth set against Dimitrov if he had succeeded in taking that fourth-set tiebreak. "I was playing decent tennis and getting into some good rallies, but the second and third sets got away from me", he said.

Carla Suarez Navarro looked like she was ready to pack her bags and leave Melbourne when she trailed an on-fire Anett Kontaveit 4-6, 1-4 in the fourth round on Sunday.
