NICK Kyrgios has prevailed in an Australian Open classic over Andreas Seppi.

The win sees the Aussie young gun become the first teenager to reach two grand slam quarter finals since Roger Federer.

Kyrgios had to do it the had way.

Seemingly down and out after losing the opening two sets, the Canberra product produced one of the greatest comebacks seen at Melbourne Park to win in five sets, 5-7, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6, 8-6.




Fighting mental demons seemingly all night, Kyrgios still managed to play some scintillating tennis in front of a packed Hisense Arena.

The loss stunned his Italian opponent, who had beaten Roger Federer in the previous round.

Kyrgios is the first Australian to reach the quarter finals since Lleyton Hewitt in 2005.

He is also the last Australian standing in the Australian Open after Bernard Tomic bowed out earlier today at the hands of No.7 seed Tomas Berdych.

The big-serving Czech was simply too good for the Australian in their fourth-round match, taking it in straight sets 6-2, 7-6, 6-2.

After collapsing in the first set, Tomic put up more of a fight in the second and forced a tie-break. However, Berdych once again took control in the third set, breaking Tomic to claim victory.

Bernard Tomic has been eliminated from the Australian Open, going down in straight sets to Tom Berdych.

In early Day 7 action, Maria Sharapova set up a blockbuster quarter-final with Eugenie Bouchard, easily dismissing the challenge of China's Shuai Peng 6-3, 6-0.

Bouchard survived a second set collapse to beat Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu 6-1 5-7 6-2.

No.10 seed Ekaterina Makarova also continued her good form, defeating Julia Goerges in straight sets.

Simona Halep had no trouble advancing to her second straight Australian Open quarter final, defeating Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2.
