Explaining the incident, Tsonga reportedly said: "In the set point, in between the first serve and the second, the guy was talking to me and telling me, 'You are under pressure now, you are under pressure now, ' when I was bouncing my balls. I have nothing to lose", she said.

"It's not fair. It's not fair". "You know, a little bit like headless chicken". I love it. It would be nice to see a couple kids, you know, a few more, hundreds, picking up a tennis racquet as well, playing at clubs, just developing the sport in the country more.

Kyrgios heads into a second-round match with Viktor Troicki - who denied locals an all-Australian match-up by beating Alex Bolt in five sets. Nothing has changed. I feel like I've always been a caring person.

'To get to play another day, I mean, this itself should get you already in a different mindset coming into whoever you got to play'. Kyrgios admitted, "When I saw him [Smith] out here, I was so nervous".

"It was wonderful", Kyrgios said after the match, according to The Guardian. Tsonga came through a marathon match against teenage sensation Denis Shapovlov as the Frenchman dug deep after finding himself two sets to one down.

Perhaps he might surface if Kyrgios hits a rough stretch during what's going to be a tough match against No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov in the next round.

"Channel Seven did an interview with you before the tournament and asked you "if there was a movie made about Nick Kyrgios" life, who would you like to play you?"

Dimitrov, the third seed, dropped the first set in his match against Mackenzie McDonald, then went two-sets-to-one up before dropping the fourth without winning a single game.

"Yeah, I think I'm ready for it".

Nick Kyrgios' next match will no doubt be his toughest yet; he will face talented Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the last sixteen. Just so many ups and downs, it's draining.

- Petra Martic, who finally got a win on her birthday, a third round success over Luksika Kumkhum on Friday in Melbourne. We have yet to see the old Kyrgios who doesn't really care and kind of just out their winging it, which is scary for the rest of the competition.

Kyrgios, a 17th seed at his home Grand Slam, was lining up a serve to consolidate an early break in the second set. "The most important in tennis I think is to believe in it". "It means that I touched some guys when they were young, and they wanted to become a player like me".

It may have been a straight sets victory, but even for Nick Kyrgios, this was a unusual tennis match.

It was a double-fault that cost Tsonga the first tiebreak, ironic given how well he served throughout the match, but he roared back into the match in the second to level things at one set apiece.
