Federer shocked by 20-year-old Tsitsipas at Australian Open

De Minaur and Nadal

Tsitsipas won their fourth round match 6-7, 7-6, 7-5, 7-6, and even managed to have plenty of the Rod Laver Arena on his side, a rarity against the sainted Federer.

Roger Federer moved into the Australian Open fourth round for the 17th time in 18 years after a straight-sets win over Taylor Fritz on Friday.

Federer hasn't played on the clay of Roland Garros since his quarterfinal loss in 2015.

That is his longest such drought since he claimed the first of his men's record 20 major titles, all the way back in 2003 at Wimbledon.

"That moment is definitely something that I will never, ever, ever forget", Tsitsipas said a few hours after his stunning four-set victory over the Swiss. I kind of watch some highlights of players that beat him in grand slams. "I'm in a phase where I want to have fun and I've missed not doing it." said Federer of the French Open.

"I'm really feeling good out here", said Anisimova, who is coached by her father, as well as the same person who's worked with her since she was 9. Saturday was a practice day for Federer at the Melbourne Park.

Switzerland's Roger Federer, left, shakes hands with Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas. "It's important when you enter the court to believe in yourself".

Tsitsipas goes on to face Roberto Bautista Agut, the man who held off Murray's fightback and seems to be stronger for the experience.

"Yeah, again, I feel good. I mean before that, too, obviously", Federer added.

In the video shared bu Australian Open official twitter handle, Federer was stopped by the security guard in a hallway outside a locker room.

Chelsea's Olivier Giroud It's hard to sit on the bench
Mesut Ozil signed a new contract at the Emirates past year but now the playmaker has fallen out of favour under Unai Emery . We had two or three meetings and we are working normally.

To his credit, Federer played down the controversy in his post-match press conference.

Tsitsipas has surged up the world rankings, from 71st in April 2018 to his current position of 15th.

His soft hands serve him well on volleys, and he is that rare man who will press forward as often as Federer and have almost as much success.

Can Tsitsipas go all the way?

The second saw Federer constantly pressure the Greek's serve but each time the energetic Tsitsipas resisted.

What was the key to Tsitsipas' thrilling late-night victory? Hung in there, gave himself chances at some point, stayed calm.

Federer said he was looking forward to the test.

As is often the case when a youngster outdoes an old master, there was buzz about whether this might signal something more meaningful than one result.

A semi-final date with Rafael Nadal will be on the cards, should the world number two beat American surprise packet Frances Tiafoe, and Tsitispas is not intimidated by the prospective match-up.

"Very similar game style like me".
