Nadal wins narrowly in a fierce match

Rafa Nadal fought a fierce match against Zverev and the result was 4-6 6-3 6-7 (5) 6-3 6-2

The Spaniard, champion here in 2009, needed to be at his resilient best to come out on top after more than four hours of top quality shot-making and thrilling 
rallies which earned both players a huge ovation from the Rod Laver Arena crowd.

"Everybody knows how good Alexander is, he's the future of our sport and the present too," said Nadal, who reached the fourth round for the 10th time in 12 appearances at Melbourne Park.

The 19-year-old Zverev showed in spades why many consider him a future grand slam champion but was just unable to stay with the uber-fit 30-year-old in a gripping deciding set.
