Follow all the reaction from another thrilling day at the Australian Open as the quarter-final stage got underway in Melbourne.

Rafael Nadal booked his place in the semi-finals with a momentous five-set victory over young Canadian Denis Shapovalov. The Spaniard, who is attempting to take advantage of Novak Djokovic’s absence and win a record 21st men’s grand slam, will face Matteo Berrettini after the Italian prevailed in another marathon match against Gael Monfils, who had rallied from two sets down to force a decider.

In the women’s singles, Madison Keys pulled off a thrilling upset against No 4 seed Barbora Krejcikova, with a straight-sets victory ensuring the American of her first grand slam semi-final since 2018. That was followed by another clinical performance by Ashleigh Barty, who thrashed Jessica Pegula 6-2 6-0 to reach the last four on home soil for a second time. There was more cause for Australian celebrations earlier on Tuesday too as the doubles pair of Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis secured their place in the semi-finals.
