  • Stefanos Tsitsipas

He cruised through the fourth set to become the first Greek man to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam twice, after reaching the same stage at Wimbledon a year ago.

Tsitsipas struggled to keep a lid on his emotions throughout much of his third-round encounter against Basilashvili as the 14th seed coughed up a tight second set 6-3 in less than ideal conditions.

Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas is set to follow Marcos Baghdatis' footsteps in Melbourne and have a a souvlaki named in his honour for his Australian Open results. Big sections of Greeks sang songs and waved the blue and white flag and scarves in the crowd.

He now faces his toughest test yet in the 20-year-old Tsitsipas who - unlike his much more seasoned opponent - had to battle on his way to the last 16. It was a bit more lively at Margaret Court Arena, particularly after Tsitsipas had clinched the win that made him the first Greek man to advance that far at multiple Grand Slam tournaments - he made it to the fourth round at Wimbledon a year ago.

"I learned a lot since my last match with him", Tsitsipas told reporters. "I feel so comfortable". I feel like playing at home.

Encore un piratage des comptes — Fortnite
Un simple clic aurait suffi à envoyer aux pirates leurs identifiants de connexion, offrant ainsi l'accès total à leur compte. Même si les améliorations n'apportent aucune aide pour le jeu, il n'est pas rare de voir des comptes se vendre assez cher.

So it stands to reason Tsitsipas' outburst, loosely translated below, was understood by more people than the Greek star bargained for.

"It's good to have such support and exciting to have an atmosphere like this", said Tsitsipas.

Federer was still playing his match against American Taylor Fritz at the Rod Laver Arena when Tsitsipas was asked in his court-side interview who he was cheering for.

While rain prevented early play on outside courts at Melbourne Park, three matches went ahead on the show courts. It will be a great day facing him in one of the best arenas, Rod Laver.

Barty continued the so-called "Barty Party" by ending Sakkari's run, and will play either former champion Maria Sharapova or defending champion Caroline Wozniacki in the next round. Berdych will meet either 2009 champion Rafael Nadal or local favourite Alex de Minaur in the next round.
