Fuming Tsonga loses cool at Aus Open fan

Round one results at the Australian Tennis Open

The third set was incredibly even, with both Tsonga and Kyrgios looking on supreme form when serving, dictating play and handing out very few opportunities.

"I'd never won a match on this court coming here", Kyrgios said.

Before his clash with Dimitrov, he's got a date with Reid against another two Frenchmen, Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin on Saturday afternoon. What got Tsonga to the third round dramatically needs improvement if he is going to get past the 22 year-old Australian.

"[With Will] that was wonderful. I don't think it threw me off".

"It was surreal seeing him tonight ..."

Tsonga of course was compared to the great Muhammad Ali when he stormed to the Australian Open final 10 years ago as an unseeded rookie, and he has celebrated some of his biggest wins since with a shadow boxing routine.

At one point, Tsonga found himself down two sets to one, before having to win the fourth set in a-tie breaker. "I kind of felt that I could faint at any moment", she said.

Tsonga was heard to say "bring him here, he needs to come down here".

"On the set point, in between the first serve and the second, the guy was talking to me and telling me "You are under pressure now" when I was bouncing my balls", he said.




"Honestly, when I saw him out here I was so nervous, no joke", Kyrgios said of Smith in his on-court interview.

"The guy was feeling safe because he was, you know, upstairs (in the crowd)".

"I have the court booked for 6 o'clock", Zverev told him.

"To get a win against him is a dream come true", added Kyrgios, who will face ATP Finals victor Grigor Dimitrov next".

Kyrgios hit 28 aces in his victory. "Tsonga played better when he was behind (against Denis Shapovalov) in the previous round".

Kyrgios and Reid played doubles at several tournaments in 2017 - including the prestigious Miami Masters where he progressed to the semi-finals of the singles, beaten by Roger Federer in an epic third-set tiebreak.

Smith approved, giving the tennis bad-boy a thumbs up from courtside.

After an early trade of breaks, the match fell into a rhythm favouring the servers - with just one more for the entire match.

Nadal reached the fourth round in Australia for the 11th time with the 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 win, and leveled his career head-to-head record with Dzumhur. No. 10 Pablo Carreno Busta beat No. 23 Gilles Muller and will next play No. 6 Marin Cilic, a 7-6 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (4) victor over Ryan Harrison.
