"That was insane", Wozniacki said after winning the last six games in a memorable 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 victory. Just gives me confidence in my game. I was like, 'This is my last chance. I kind of felt that I could faint at any moment.

Vandeweghe said after the match that she was irritated by what she described as excessive celebrating by her Hungarian opponent during their match. Her close shave isn't lost on her, as she said after the match: "Right now, playing with house money".

In the end, she battled on to finish the match, but went down in straight sets.

"When asked why there were some players who only play at night, he replied: "You are here for a while, no?"

Dzumhur has been on a three-match winning streak against opponents in the Top 5 of the ATP Rankings, having beaten Nadal at the 2016 Miami Open presented by Itau (third-set retirement), then previous year over No. 3-ranked Stan Wawrinka at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships and No. 4-ranked Alexander Zverev at the Shenzhen Open.

So far he has been impressive at Melbourne Park going it alone, moving through to the fourth round with a hard-fought four sets win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on centre court on Friday evening. The Serbian player walked, smiling, to the umpire's chair to apologize, while Keothavong joked: "It's not my day, is it?"

Marta Kostyuk came from the other angle.

Caroline Wozniacki advanced over Kiki Bertens 6-4, 6-3 after she was pushed to her limit in the round of 64.

Earlier, Kyrgios had hinted that he would remain without a coach for the ongoing season after parting ways with Sebastien Grosjean of France a year ago.

Another Ukrainian, Kateryna Bondarenko, beat No. 15-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2, 6-3 and will next play No. 19 Magdalena Rybarikova.

Nadal, a losing finalist to Roger Federer a year ago in Melbourne, will face Bosnia-Herzegovina's 28th seed Damir Dzumhur in the third round.

He said, "I don't know, no?"

Kyrgios' next match will be against Grigor Dimitrov, who defeated Andrey Rublev in a US Open grudge match.

Dzumhur struggled early on, losing five games on the bounce and only marginally recovering in a one-sided opening set Down Under.

French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko also progressed, but she too needed three sets to get past China's Duan Yingying.

Pablo Carreno Busta and Marin Cilic both advanced as well, as did Kyle Edmund.
