Serena Williams (23) and Steffi Graf (22) have achieved the unique feat, and Margaret Court (24) has done it if you include those won before the Open era, but no male player has.

Even three-time grand slam champion Andy Murray had some kind words for the 18-year-old sensation.

"I've showed on multiple occasions over the year that I can play and beat the best guys in the world", Zverev said.

This enables us the option of the plethora of candidates (including Djokovic) in quarter three, as well as Federer in quarter four, and bettors who aren't put off by backing odds-on shots can consider this possibility.

In Thursday's draw, 36-year-old Federer, bidding for a record 20th Grand Slam title, has a first round encounter with the 51st-ranked Bedene. "Right after I finished the match, I watched it the following day", said Dimitrov of his epic Melbourne encounter with Nadal.

There's an extremely strong chance that Cilic will face worse players than himself until at least the quarter-final, and should Rafa get defeated, he would only face Pablo Carreno-Busta as a top ten opponent in the quarter. That was it. "I've learned so much from that match".
