Nick Kyrgios 'breaks the ice', Kyle Edmund digs deep - Australian Open diary

  • Nick Kyrgios and Matt Reid progressed

Channel 7 commentator Jim Courier threw Kyrgios under the bus when he revealed that the young Aussie had previously said he'd like Smith to play him in a movie.

Tsonga regained his composure and held a 5-2 lead in the fourth-set tie breaker, only to allow Kyrgios back into the set and bow out of the tournament.

New York Times journalist Ben Rothenberg suggests Tsonga, who was shouting in French, said: "Bring him down here and I'll kick his a**". "[Dimitrov] is an fantastic athlete, one of the best players in the world and he had an unbelievable end of the year". "No joke", Kyrgios said. "I'm looking forward to it, he's one of my idols", Kyrgios said on Wednesday.

"I definitely think hopefully in the future we can see a lot more kids and athletes coming out of Canada playing tennis".

In what is set to be one of the most intriguing matches of the Australian Open so far, our last man standing, Nick Kyrgios, will square off with former finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Friday night.

When Kyrgios was given a code violation for not being ready to start in the allotted time, tempers could have frayed but the Australian kept his cool and just smiled.

Alize Cornet, who had her blood pressure checked during a medical timeout in her 7-5, 6-4 third-round loss to Elise Mertens, was among those calling for a review of the limits that determine when play should be suspended.

Andreas Seppi withstood 52 aces from 38-year-old Ivo Karlovic for a 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (3), 6-7 (5), 9-7 win in 3 hours and 51 minutes in the afternoon.

It may have been a straight sets victory, but even for Nick Kyrgios, this was a odd tennis match.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios shakes hands with France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga after Kyrgios won their match.

Kyrgios, who has been a controversial figure for most of his career, divides opinion among the public Down Under, but what Australians love more than anything else is a victor.

"I've played against the local, so to speak". "Fucking so fucked up, so dumb, so, so dumb". Wozniacki was down 5-1 and facing two match points during the second-round clash on Rod Laver Arena before the second seed rallied to avoid a stunning upset, prevailing 3-6 6-2 7-5.

Kyrgios dominated the first set but had to wait until the 11th game to break, before serving out the set.

He saved a break point in the very next game and went on to break Troicki in the third game, setting up an anything-but-comfortable straight-sets win.

After holding serve, 32nd seed Kontaveit sealed victory when an Ostapenko forehand thumped into the net.

At the start of the fourth set, Tsonga lost his rag with a fan who seemed to yell something in his direction, with the umpire Jake Garner trying to stop Tsonga from getting involved.
