Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had a run-in with a heckler in his third round defeat to Nick Kyrgios at the Australian Open

Affable Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga briefly became enraged during Friday's third-round loss to Nick Kyrgios, unleashing a furious rant to the chair umpire.

Millman went down in four sets to the 28th seed Damir Dzumhur 7-5, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, leaving Kyrgios and Ebden to fly the Australian flag later on day three.

Kyrgios will hope the temperatures have dipped from the forecast peak of 40 degrees Celsius by the time he comes out to face Frenchman Tsonga, losing finalist at Melbourne Park a decade ago.

The win sets up a blockbuster fourth-round clash on Sunday night with Bulgarian third seed Grigor Dimitrov. He was a guy I obviously looked up to growing up. The guy was feeling safe because he was upstairs (in the stands).

Nick Kyrgios cruised through to the second round of the 2018 Australian Open with a straight sets win over Rogerio Dutra Silva.

Wilander said Kyrgios thrives in a chaotic environment as was demonstrated in his matches on Hisense, where he swore at a fan during the encounter against Dutra Silva and then was heckled against Troicki.

"He broke me back when I was serving for the match and I started freaking out and I just kind of tried to hold serve and tried to work it out in the breaker". The 17th-seeded Kyrgios won the last five points after falling behind 5-2 in the tiebreaker.

Kyrgios threw up a serve while leading 4-1 in the final set.

It equaled the longest women's singles match at the Australian Open in terms of games played: Chanda Rubin's win over Arantxa Shanchez Vicario in 1996 was also 48 games.

"I finished the U.S. Open and I was exhausted", she said.

Asked about the prospect of facing Kyrgios, and the majority of the crowd, Dimitrov said: "I've done it many times before".

Kyrgios idolised Tsonga when he was growing up and is looking forward to facing him in the heat of battle again.

"I just feel that my muscles are gone", said Halep, who badly twisted her left ankle in the first round.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has had every reason to enjoy his Australian Open journey more than most this time around.

"I think I lost all of them, and I played three or four". He did not play his best but he was able to maintain a level good enough to comfortably defeat his opponent. The last couple years we've proved that tennis players can come out of there, it's doable.

"How much you have to pay Svitolina to have one-hour lesson?"
