Australian Open: Federer headed to 4th round

Roger Federer eliminated from Australian Open by up-and-coming Tsitsipas

They are scheduled to play on Sunday at 7 pm in the Rod Laver Arena.

Last year, Tsitsipas lost his opening match in the Australian Open, while Federer collected his sixth Australian Open crown and 20th Grand Slam title.

The best part was, there was no argument from the 37-year-old as he stopped and waited patiently for his entourage to catch up with him. Back then, Tsitsipas was just 9 years old.

Tsitsipas came out strong, giving Federer a run for his money from the first game and while Federer took the first set 6-7, Tsitsipas won the second set 7-6, the third 7-5 and the fourth 7-6.

"There is nothing I can describe it to", said the 14th-seeded Tsitsipas to the crowd after his win.

Tsitsipas does not lack confidence. "You're not going to get many chances against Roger, when you get them you have to take them". "Mentally you have to be much stronger than any other match that you have faced that week". Nadal will now meet Tiafoe for a place in the semifinals.

"The umpire, I think, was lenient there", Todd Woodbridge said in commentary.

And Tsitsipas was on the receiving end of a raft of criticism late in the match when he called a medical timeout in a move that many thought was a tactical ploy.

James won't join Lakers on upcoming 2-game road trip
LeBron James has been cleared to practice with the Los Angeles Lakers after they return from their upcoming two-game road trip. The 34-year-old suffered the injury during the Christmas Day defeat at the Golden State Warriors .

"I have massive regrets". In 2017, he was playing the qualifications [in Melbourne]. From the very beginning I kept the mindset to believe in myself and my capabilities'. It was a dream come true facing him'. Nearly every week he's like that.

"Yeah, again, I feel good". He is very focused and driven.

"It's not always easy, especially for younger guys", said Federer, who was trying to reach his 54th Grand Slam quarterfinal. "I'm happy I played against him at the Hopman Cup", he said. "I'm really waiting for that moment". I also had the feeling it was not necessary to have a long break. "I'm in a phase where I want to have fun and I've missed not doing it", Federer was quoted as saying in French by Agence France-Presse.

"This match point is going to stay - I'm pretty much sure - forever, for the rest of my life". I have been idolising him since I was six. He's playing so well, and I'm looking forward to the match-up with him. "I thought conditions were a bit slower this year". I like how he mixes up his game and also comes to the net. He showed such good tennis over the years.

Federer has been here before, many times.

While not ready to agree his time as a grand slam contender is up, Federer was happy to welcome Tsitsipas to the "next level".

There's no doubt Sharapova will be the favorite, but Barty has already proved she can mix it with the sport's elite.

"He's definitely done a really nice job now the previous year and a half".
