Martin Parry 10:36 PM Venus Williams displayed her fighting qualities to stay alive at the Australian Open.
Andy Murray 8:36 PM It looks like the whole of Australia is waiting for Tuesday's match – me against Nick Kyrgios. I saw on the television on Monday morning that Channel 7 had a "Countdown to Nick" clock running along the bottom of the screen, counting off the minutes until we step on court.
Greg Baum 7:35 PM After a short hit-up, Nick Kyrgios waved to the six-deep crowd entreating him for autographs from one side of the practice court, also peering over a hoarding from an adjacent court, and made to leave through a gate on the other side. On his face was an impish smile.
Matt Murnane 7:01 PM Stan is still the man, at least for now, and the reigning Australian Open champion says he is satisfied with the under-the-radar path his title defence has taken heading into a redemption match against Japan's Kei Nishikori.
6:42 PM Kei Nishikori matched his career-best performance at Melbourne Park by grinding down David Ferrer 6-3 6-3 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals of the Australian Open on Monday.
Michael Chammas 6:34 PM Serena Williams has reached the quarter-final of a grand slam for just the second time in her last five appearances at a major, setting up a showdown with last year's Australian Open runner-up, Dominika Cibulkova.
Linda Pearce 6:28 PM For all the questions that Nick Kyrgios has already answered during his exhilarating run to the Australian Open quarter-finals, in the locker-room, apparently, others remain. Four-time major winner Jim Courier senses a peer sentiment that combines immense respect for the 19-year-old's outrageous talent with uncertainty about what will happen next.
Jon Tuxworth 8:00 PM Nick Kyrgios' coach Todd Larkham has urged him to maintain the rage in Tuesday night's centre court blockbuster with Andy Murray, crediting his second set dummy spit against Andreas Seppi for helping keep his Australian Open dream alive.
Jon Tuxworth 10:00 PM Grand slam champion Jim Courier believes Nick Kyrgios is one of the young guns capable of replacing the Big Four when they call it quits, adamant he has the big game and the big match mentality to step up.
5:05 PM Defending champion Stan Wawrinka is through to the Australian Open quarter-finals after a hard-fought win over Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
Michael Chammas 5:00 PM Nick Kyrgios was berated on social media for allegedly swearing at a member of the crowd during his match on Sunday night, but his mother has revealed that the expletive was actually directed at a member of his team.
4:22 PM World No.1 Serena Williams has come back from a set down for the second straight match at the Australian Open, beating Spaniard Garbine Muguruza to advance to the quarter-finals.
Marc Moncrief 4:11 PM There is perhaps only one thing Melburnians love talking about in January more than the tennis: the weather.
Chris Dutton 2:10 PM His mum can't confiscate his phone when he smashes racquets anymore, nor can she survive the tension of an epic match.
1:50 PM For the second straight year, diminutive Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova is making a run deep into the Australian Open.
Linda Pearce 1:22 PM Bernard Tomic has branded as "ridiculous" the first-week Australian Open scheduling he claims has also been questioned in the men's locker-room, adding some sarcastic criticism of tournament director and Tennis Australia chief executive Craig Tiley to an outspoken sequel to a comparatively tame fourth-round exit.
Greg Baum 1:19 PM Our Sir Prince Flipper, that Australian nonpareil, wasn't at Melbourne Park on Monday, nor Her Majesty, His Missus. That was a bit of a surprise, because there can be no more Australian place on Australia Day than the Australian Open (see, three in one sentence).
Michael Chammas 12:50 PM Andy Murray knows all about the pressures of a home grand slam, but he admits he never shared the same belief Nick Kyrgios possesses to win a major as a teenager.
