  • Frances Tiafoe lets his emotions go after beating South Africa's Kevin Anderson in their second round match at the Australian Open

He had been looking for a deep run at Melbourne Park this year after getting past the opening round for the first time since 2015.

World number 39 Tiafoe had never previously progressed beyond the second round in Melbourne. "I lost to Kevin three times past year, and down a set and a break it looked like he was going to get it for the fourth time".

"But I'm more anxious about winning tennis matches".

"If I play my best I'm hard to beat".

The Swiss star's Australian achievements so far put him on a par with other six-time winners Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson - although the Australian great's victories all came before the Open era.

His long-time rival and 17-time Grand Slam victor Nadal takes on local hope Matthew Ebden in a night match.

The Spaniard is bidding for his own slice of history by becoming the first man in the Open era, and only the third in history along with Emerson and Rod Laver, to win each Grand Slam on two or more occasions.

In what's been described as the biggest upset at the tournament so far, the second-round encounter lasted just under three hours, with the 20-year-old Tiafoe winning 4-6 6-4 6-4 7-5, setting up a third-round clash with Italian veteran Andreas Seppi.

"It means the world to me", said the American, who will celebrate his 21st birthday on Sunday and is fresh from playing the mixed teams Hopman Cup in Perth with Serena Williams.

The Croat now plays Spanish 26th seed Fernando Verdasco, who beat Radu Albot of Moldova.

Also through is Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas, who beat Serb Viktor Troicki 6-3 2-6 6-2 7-5.

"I was trying to stay consistent and as aggressive as I could and I think I served well too", Wozniacki said.

No 5 Sloane Stephens opened the day in Rod Laver Arena with a 6-3 6-1 victory over her junior doubles partner Timea Babos.
