In the first round, Chung played Alexander's older brother Mischa.

The record crowd of over 87,000 people that packed into Melbourne Park on Saturday, to see day six of the Australian Open were not disappointed.

Unsurprisingly, he received a code violation for racket abuse and Chung soon wrapped up a 5-7, 7-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-0 victory.

Thiem downed the 26th-seed 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 in 2hr 8min on Margaret Court Arena and will face either German Maxmilian Marterer or American Tennys Sandgren for a place in the quarter-finals.

Zverev, for all the hype and victories over Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in Masters Series finals previous year, has still not gone beyond the fourth round of a grand slam.

While he won 5 titles and was one of just 4 players to beat Roger Federer a year ago, he has yet to get beyond the 4th round at a Grand Slam.

But while Zverev denied the former is the case, he confessed he was struggling under the weight of pressure put upon himself on the biggest stage. I have some figuring out to do, what happens to me in deciding moments in Grand Slam. "It happened at Wimbledon".

Matched up against a tough Utah Jazz team, the Knicks stood tall in the face of adversity and secured a critical 117-115 road win. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Utah is favored at home, as the Jazz are getting odds of -6 points against the Knicks.

"It was really tough, he is a really good player and we know how to play each other", said the glasses-wearing 21-year-old, who trained in the heat of Thailand before coming to Melbourne. It happened in NY.

"SO impressed with the great effort from @LaurenDavis93 and @Simona_Halep Both deserved to win that match", said Evert, who won the Australian Open in 1982 and 1984.

The early signs of Zverev's meltdown started to show in the fourth set, with Chung leading 4-1, when he argued with the umpire about why the lights had not been turned on as a result of the fading light. The level of tennis produced in the first three sets was so high it looked like a future Grand Slam final.

'I think the NY one was worse 'cause I feel like I played bad the whole match.

And with his run in Melbourne, Chung becomes the first South Korean man to reach the fourth round at the Australian Open and just the third Korean player (male or female) ever to do it at a Grand Slam.

In the men's bracket, last year's victor Roger Federer, dispatched Richard Gasquet in straight sets, Novak Djokovic impressed as he eased his way to victory over world number 21 Albert Ramos Vinolas and Dominic Thiem cruised into the last 16 after defeating Adrian Mannarino. "I'm just happy to share the court with Novak".
