Stefanos Tsitsipas recovers from two sets down to knock out Rafael Nadal in stunning turnaround

Stefanos Tsitsipas recovered from two sets to love down to knock Rafael Nadal out of the Australian Open in a four-hour epic. The world No5 had looked dead and buried as he quickly fell well behind but remained undeterred by the fact that Nadal had previously lost just once in his Grand Slam career when leading 2-0 in sets. Aptly perhaps, the only time had come against Fabio Fognini at the 2015 US Open, a player Nadal beat in straight sets at the preceding round in Melbourne in 2021.
