Alex de Minaur vs Andrey Rublev LIVE: Australian Open 2024 scores and results after Novak Djokovic wins


Emma Raducanu opens up on battling stomach bug after Australian Open exit

The fourth round of the Australian Open is underway with home favourite Alex De Minaur headlining the night session on the middle Sunday of the tournament against fifth seed Andrey Rublev.

Novak Djokovic cruised through to the quarter-finals earlier on Sunday, dropping just three games in a 6-0, 6-0, 6-3 victory over Adrian Mannarino. The Serb will face Taylor Fritz after he overcame seventh seed Stefanos Tsisipas in four sets, while Jannik Sinner is also in the last-eight after a straight-sets win over Karen Khachanov.

In the women’s singles, defending champion Aryna Sabalenka was a comfortable winner too, beating Amanda Anisimova 6-3, 6-2. US Open champion Coco Gauff will also be in the quarter-finals following a 6-1, 6-2 win over Magdalena Frech.

There was a major shock on Saturday as World No 1 and top seed Iga Swiatek crashed out of the Australian Open after falling to a 3-6 6-3 6-4 defeat to Czech teenager Linda Noskova. British No 1 Cameron Norrie advanced to the fourth round for the first time after sealing an impressive four-set win against the 11th seed Casper Ruud.

Australian Open LIVE: Andrey Rublev after his win…

“Massive credit to Alex. Two sets to one down, I told myself I would die to win this. It’s always tough against Alex, all of them [past matches] were dramatic. One of the fastest players, super tough to play.

“Super happy to be in the quarter-final, we’ll see what happens. I felt some pain [at the end] but it was normal after four hours, tried not to think about it and push myself. Keep fighting and we’ll see what’s going to happen.

“My head is like a scary movie! A lot of emotions, better not to be inside myself.

On playing Jannik Sinner next: “He beat me last time, looks like I’m in trouble. I’ll do my best, we’ll see what happens!”

GAME, SET AND MATCH – Andrey Rublev beats Alex de Minaur 6-4 6-7(5) 6-7(4) 6-3 6-0

Andrey Rublev has done it! Despite the physical issues, he comes through in a marathon match!

De Minaur saves a match point with a deep volley at the net, but then Rublev hits an ace to save a break point – and whacks a forehand winner to save another!

The Aussie keeps fighting, but goes wild on the backhand on another break point. And on his second match point, De Minaur goes long to end it.

Rublev through to his 10th quarter-final (he’s never been any further) in a Grand Slam – he will face Jannik Sinner on Tuesday.

Incredible level. Match of the tournament so far!

De Minaur has a sniff in this game at 15-30 – but again Rublev’s hitting takes it away from him!

Monster shots off both wings – and he’s now just two games away!

That being said, De Minaur won’t give up and Rublev looks to be hobbling about a bit, perhaps a bit of cramp coming his way…

Just outrageous hitting from Andrey Rublev!

The Russian cannot miss right now and although De Minaur has a chance to seal the game at 40-30 after an ace, Rublev’s fierce ball-striking just drags the game back in his favour.

On break point, De Minaur can’t get enough racket on Rublev’s backhand down the line – and he now has a double break does the Russian! He lets out a wild scream!

It’s slipping away from the Aussie No 1 here…
