MELBOURNE---Rafael Nadal had a
good, hard look at the future before
pulling a few tricks from his past to
hold it back---for now.
The 14-time Grand Slam winner, still
recovering from a couple of months off
with an injured left wrist, rallied for a
4-6, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-2 win over
German teenager Alexander Zverev
yesterday, to reach the fourth round
of the Australian Open.
The 30-year-old Spaniard finished
stronger in the four-hour, six-minute
match on Rod Laver Arena as Zverev,
widely touted as a Grand Slam cham-
pion of the future, tightened up with
cramping and nerves.
"I enjoyed a lot this great battle. I was
losing the last couple of times in the
fifth set and I said to myself, 'Today's
the day,'" said ninth-seeded Nadal, who
had lost eight of the previous nine times
he'd trailed 2-1 in a best-of-five-sets
Nadal attributed his superior finish to
the experience of 236 previous matches
in the majors.
"Well, fighting---and running a lot,"
Nadal said, when asked to explain how
he pulled off the win.
"I think you know, everybody knows
how good Alexander is. He's the future
of our sport and the present, too."
It was 19-year-old Zverev's 15th
Grand Slam match, but he had been on
a three-match winning streak against
top ten players.
"Now I'm disappointed, but I know
that this was a great match," he said.
"That was a great fight.
"He's probably one of the fittest ten-
nis players in the history of the game,
so ... there are a lot of positives in this
Nadal finished with 43 winners and
34 unforced errors, while Zverev---hit-
ting harder, using a wider array of shots
and trying more to find the lines---had
58 winners and 74 unforced errors.
Grigor Dimitrov and Richard Gasquet
didn't start their third-round match
until 11.58 pm local time, most likely
the latest start for a match at the Aus-
After grinding through four games
in 24 minutes, No 15 Dimitrov picked
up pace and finished off 6-3, 6-2, 6-4
at 2 am --- well short of the Grand Slam
record 4.34 am finish for the match
between Lleyton Hewitt and Marcos
Baghdatis in 2008.
Serena Williams has had time on her
side, reaching the fourth round with-
out dropping a set to stay on course in
her bid for a record 23rd Grand Slam
title. Williams beat fellow American
Nicole Gibbs 6-1, 6-3 and didn't face
a break point until she was serving for
Dropping serve in that game was her
only lapse in a match that then extended
just beyond the hour---to 63 minutes,
to be precise. The six-time Australian
Open champion next faces No 16 Barb-
"I don't have anything to prove in this
tournament here. Just doing the best I
can," Williams said.
"Obviously, I'm here for one reason."
In one of two matches that finished
just before midnight, US Open run-
ner-up Karolina Pliskova rallied from
5-1 down in the third set to beat Jelena
Ostapenko 4-6, 6-0, 10-8.
Ostapenko twice served for the match
and twice she was broken, winning only
one point in each game.
In the other, No 22 Daria Gavrilova
beat 12th-seed Timea Bacsinszky 6-3,
5-7, 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena, delaying
the start of the last match of the day.
Earlier, Wimbledon finalist Milos
Raonic reached the fourth round with
a 6-2, 7-6 (5), 3-6, 6-3 win over No 25
Gilles Simon and will next play No 13
Roberto Bautista Agut, who beat David
Ferrer 7-5, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (3), 6-4.
Nadal will get another veteran next
after US Open semi-finalist Gael Mon-
fils beat Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-6
In another gripping five-setter, but
on an outside court, wild-card en-
try Denis Istomin followed his upset
win over defending champion Novak
Djokovic with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 4-6,
6-2 victory over Pablo Carreno Busta.
No 8 Dominic Thiem beat Benoit
Paire 6-1, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 to set up a
fourth-round match against No 11 Da-
vid Goffin, who ended Ivo Karlovic's
run 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
In other women's matches, Ekaterina
Makarova beat WTA Finals champion
Dominika Cibulkova 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-3.
In a rematch of their fourth-round
meeting last year, Makarova will next
take on 2016 semi-finalist Johanna
Konta, who beat former No 1-ranked
Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-1.
Mirjana Lucic-Baroni continued her
unlikely run with a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 win
over Maria Sakkari, and so did Amer-
ican qualifier Jennifer Brady.
Before this week, the 34-year-old
Lucic-Baroni hadn't won a match
at Melbourne Park since her debut
in 1998. The 19-year gap in between
match wins at a Grand Slam tourna-
ment broke the record set by Kimiko
A semifinalist at Wimbledon in 1999,
Lucic-Baroni next plays No 116-ranked
Brady, who had never played in the main
draw of a major before she qualified for
Brady, 21, had a 7-6 (4), 6-2 win over
14th-seeded Elena Vesnina in the first
match of the day on Show Court 2.
