World No.3 Alexander Zverev crashed out of the Australian Open on Sunday, losing 3-6, 6-7(5/7), 3-6 in the men’s singles fourth-round match against Canada’s Denis Shapovalov. The Canadian 14th seed proved to be too strong for his German opponent, registering a straight-sets victory to set up a quarterfinal clash against Rafael Nadal.

Nadal came out on top of an epic 28-minute opening-set tiebreak in sapping heat to power past Adrian Mannarino into the quarter-finals.


The 20-time Grand Slam champion needed all of his experience and resolve to go on and claim a 7-6 (16/14), 6-2, 6-2 victory on Rod Laver Arena to reach the last eight.
