And for the second consecutive match, Grigor Dimitrov, without the finest version of his world-class game, found a way to move on at the Australian Open and keep his maiden Grand Slam title hopes alive.

"I'm a big believer in life, and what I've learned is that learning (something that) in 10 minutes would take someone (by themselves) 10 years is a very effective way to maximize the short window that you get in this sport", he said.

Things were tougher for third seed Grigor Dimitrov, the man Nadal beat in an epic semi-final 12 months ago.

"It was wonderful. I've never won a match on this court before but playing Jo I was obviously very nervous", Kyrgios said on court. "I'm feeling good physically, the heat didn't scare me at all today, so that's a good sign".

Nick Kyrgios boosted hopes of a home victor at the Australian Open by beating his childhood hero Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the third round at Melbourne Park.
