Unseeded Tiafoe awaits imperious Nadal in last eight

Nadal barrels through Berdych to reach Australian Open quarters

After Stefanos Tsitsipas upset Roger Federer on Sunday, the Rod Laver Arena is treated to another battle of the generations today as America's 21-year-old Frances Tiafoe looks to spring a surprise on the great Rafael Nadal. And that was evident in his post-match interview on the court after he beat Bautista Agut.

But as dominant as the score-line reads and the performance proved to be, the American will be better for it by the time the next Grand Slam rolls around in May in Paris.

Wimbledon victor and 2016 champion Kerber, the bookies' favourite along with Serena Williams after defending champion Caroline Wozniacki was ousted early, was no match for Collins, ranked 35 in the world. In 2011 at the US Open, when he eventually fell to Novak Djokovic in the final. His season also ended early with ankle surgery and an abdominal injury.

Tennis is beginning to see a breakthrough of highly-rated young talents, Fritz certainly part of that group, but Federer's serene quality is further proof that the current top trio of himself, Nadal and Djokovic will not be dethroned easily as he alluded to.

Now, however, anything other than a Nadal-Djokovic duel in the final would be surprising.

Tsitsipas played his debut ATP main draw tournament in Rotterdam in 2017 and would make his Grand Slam debut at the French Open later the same year, though he would bow out in the opening round.

It sparked the tantrum of the tournament but the umpiring decision that ruined Pablo Carreno Busta's Australian Open was incorrect, Aussie doubles great Todd Woodbridge says.

But he knocked off two-time Slam runner-up Kevin Anderson and 20th-seeded Grigor Dimitrov on the way to the quarterfinals, drawing plenty of attention for his play - and his bare-chested, biceps-slapping celebrations inspired by LeBron James.

Now, as evidenced by his showing in Melbourne, Tsitsipas is likely to break into the world's top ten players - a remarkable feat for a player who turned 20 in August. He experienced discomfort there in his intense four-set win over Russia's Daniil Medvedev in Monday's night session. "He serves well. Very quick forehand", said second seed Nadal, who has not dropped a set so far.

Still, it has been a breakthrough event for the world No. 39.

Collins is little known after playing much of her tennis in the U.S. college system and was making her debut in the main draw at Melbourne Park. He learned to play the game at the tennis center near Washington where his father served as the custodian.

Collins put aside a poor start Tuesday, including dropping a 16-minute, 28-point, 11-deuce second game to completely dominate the final set, which she opened by grabbing 20 of 23 points.
