NICK Kyrgios has provided an early Australia Day present, coming from behind to beat Andreas Seppi in a five-set classic.

It was a night of high drama at Melbourne Park as No.6 seed Andy Murray proved too good for No.10 seed Grigor Dimitrov.

But it was Kyrgios who stole the show with his amazing come-from-behind win.




Seemingly down and out after losing the opening two sets, the Canberra product produced one of the greatest comebacks seen at Melbourne Park to win in five sets, 5-7, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6, 8-6.

The win sees the Aussie young gun become the first teenager to reach two grand slam quarter finals since Roger Federer.

The 19-year-old is the first Australian to reach the Open quarters since Lleyton Hewitt in 2005 and the youngest since Pat Cash in 1984.

On Rod Laver Arena, Murray and Dimitrov were locked in an intense battle all match.

However, a horror collapse by the Bulgarian saw him go from serving for the fourth set to crashing out of the tournament.

Down 5-3 in the fourth, Murray roared home to take it 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 7-5.

The Scot will now meet Kyrgios on Tuesday.

Bernard Tomic has been eliminated from the Australian Open, going down in straight sets to Tom Berdych.

Kyrgios is the last Australian standing after Bernard Tomic bowed out earlier at the hands of No.7 seed Tomas Berdych.

The big-serving Czech was simply too good for the Australian in their fourth-round match, taking it in straight sets 6-2, 7-6, 6-2.

After collapsing in the first set, Tomic put up more of a fight in the second and forced a tie-break. However, Berdych once again took control in the third set, breaking Tomic to claim victory.

In early Day 7 action, Maria Sharapova set up a blockbuster quarter-final with Eugenie Bouchard, easily dismissing the challenge of China's Shuai Peng 6-3, 6-0.

Bouchard survived a second set collapse to beat Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu 6-1 5-7 6-2.

No.10 seed Ekaterina Makarova also continued her good form, defeating Julia Goerges in straight sets.

Simona Halep had no trouble advancing to her second straight Australian Open quarter final, defeating Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2.
