Round one results at the Australian Tennis Open

He will next play French 15th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the third round.

Kyrgios, who has been a controversial figure for most of his career, divides opinion among the public Down Under, but what Australians love more than anything else is a victor.

"I was nervous for both", he said. I think I did a good preparation here.

'I thought he was just taking a photo of himself but then he went into a chant of some sort, ' sideline reporter Roger Rasheed added.

"[With Will] that was unbelievable". "No joke, he's my favourite actor".

"And I was like, people think I'm cool but I just wanted him to think that I was like the coolest person ever".

"It was surreal seeing him tonight ..."

The helicopter, that's when I was thinking like, 'Of course, it's at my match. He was really genuine.

For the third straight year, Nick Kyrgios is through to the Australian Open second round as Samantha Stosur is forced to confront a painful loss.

Her reward is a fourth round tie against unseeded Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro who got the better of Kaia Kanepi in three sets. "I responded well", he said.

At the start of the fourth set, Tsonga lost his rag with a fan who seemed to yell something in his direction, with the umpire Jake Garner trying to stop Tsonga from getting involved.

"On the set point, in between the first serve and the second, the guy was talking to me and telling me "You are under pressure now" when I was bouncing my balls", he said.

"I don't know a lot about tennis but watching him I was like man, I think I might have to take this up a little bit". The guy was feeling safe because he was, you know, upstairs.

It was Kyrgios's ability to stay mentally strong in the face of a number of distractions that would be his greatest asset in this match. Before the match had even begun, Kyrgios was hit with a code violation for being too slow to start. "The one thing I'm very happy with is that I feel I have a big arsenal of tools to deal with any circumstances".

Kyrgios wins this match in three or four sets.

Changing ends after holding serve in the opening game of the fourth set, Tsonga made a confrontational gesture towards a spectator as if to challenge them to a brawl.

The PA system wasn't working and the umpire's microphone had a shocker, prompting wild cheers and laughter from the crowd at the beginning of the third set.

Canadian teenager Shapovalov suffered an agonising exit from the Australian Open on Wednesday, giving up a 5-2 lead in the final set to be beaten by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

After an early trade of breaks, the match fell into a rhythm favouring the servers - with just one more for the entire match.

Nadal reached the fourth round in Australia for the 11th time with the 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 win, and leveled his career head-to-head record with Dzumhur.
