Rafael Nadal v Frances Tiafoe: Australian Open quarter-final

  • Spain's Rafael Nadal will next face giant-killing American Frances Tiafoe at the Australian Open quarter-finals

Tiafoe defeated a resurgent Grigor Dimitrov in four tight sets to reach his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final and celebrate his 21st birthday in flawless fashion.

On a column for SuperSport the world No. 6 Kevin Anderson commented on the upcoming match between Rafael Nadal and Frances Tiafoe at the Australian Open. "I can't believe it, man". I was going to change their life.

I can speak from experience when I say that it can certainly be intimidating to play on such a big stage, with such high stakes, against a far more seasoned opponent.

Berdych rallied to grab a set point off Nadal in the final stanza but an untimely malfunction of the serve clock rattled him during the ensuing tie break and he bowed out slapping a backhand into the net.

"Nadal did not a drop a set in the opening week as he eyes an 18th major title, but the world number two is not expecting an easy ride against American Tiafoe in what will be their first meeting". I mean, a ton of people have.

Nadal has never played Tiafoe before, but the 17-time champion is heavily favored to advance to the semifinals.

"I'd better go to bed now".

Ghosn offers stock, passports for bail
In a statement released on Monday by his US-based representatives, Ghosn said he would "respect any and all bail conditions".

"(But) he'd better be ready".

He faces another Spaniard, the in-form Roberto Bautista Agut. Of course, he's risky, he's in the quarter-finals.

One of those included the forehand down the line which broke Berdych's serve for the third time - to love on this occasion - and gave him the first set after just 27 minutes. "He's a very dynamic player, aggressive one", Nadal said.

The victor will play either the man who shocked Federer in round four, Greek 14th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, or Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut, who ended the tournament, and possibly the career, of the injured Andy Murray. "I know my colleagues Jim Courier and Lleyton Hewitt, last night when they saw it, they thought the umpire made the right call".

The win sparked wild scenes, with the Melbourne Arena crowd going insane as the athletic youngster ripped his shirt off to do his trademark copy of Lebron James' signature celebration.

Angelique Kerber, who won the title at Melbourne Park in 2016, was completely outplayed by unseeded Danielle Collins of the U.S.in a surprisingly lopsided 6-0, 6-2 upset, while 2008 champ Maria Sharapova double-faulted 10 times in a 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 loss to No. 15 Ash Bartyof Australia.

"That's the only positive I can take from the match".
