Australian Open day six: Kyrgios survives titanic tussle to set up Nadal clash

:Headline: Australian Open day six: Kyrgios survives titanic tussle to set up Nadal clash:
The story of the sixth day of action at the Australian Open.

Nick Kyrgios provided the late-night drama at Melbourne Park on Saturday to set up a fourth-round clash with Rafael Nadal.

Having led Karen Khachanov by two sets and a break, Kyrgios eventually won on a deciding fifth-set tie-break after the longest match of his career, while Nadal cruised to victory over Pablo Carreno Busta.

The women's seeds continued to fall – Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina and Belinda Bencic joining Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka in exiting the tournament.

Rafa glued

Nadal revealed he was caught up in the drama of Roger Federer's epic five-set victory over John Millman on Friday night. The top seed stayed up until 1am to see how it played out, saying: "It was impossible to sleep watching the match. It was emotional at the end. I enjoyed it. Anything could happen, but Federer is Federer."

Thomas doesn't pass Muster

Federer will try to made the most of his second chance when he takes on Hungary's Marton Fucsovics in the fourth round on Sunday.

Earlier in the night session, top seed Ashleigh Barty will look to avenge her Wimbledon loss to Alison Riske while Coco Gauff faces fellow American Sofia Kenin as she tries to reach a grand slam quarter-final for the first time.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic faces 14th seed Diego Schwartzman and Serena Williams' conqueror Wang Qiang takes on Ons Jabeur.
