Hello, good afternoon and thanks for Genie in. It has been a big day for

:00:49.:00:57.

British tennis. -- tuning in. World number one Andy Murray has been in

:00:58.:01:01.

action and the first time in 15 years we have had two British men

:01:02.:01:04.

into the fourth round in Melbourne. His friend and Davis Cup team-mate

:01:05.:01:09.

Dan Evans has been enjoying something of a purple patch that

:01:10.:01:12.

while Murray has been favourite for the title Ian Evans's success has

:01:13.:01:21.

come as something of a surprise. The world number one. He could be top

:01:22.:01:33.

20. No doubt a talent. Wimbledon champion again. Dan Evans fired up.

:01:34.:01:42.

Fabulous once again. He definitely believes.

:01:43.:01:57.

Two British players, two very different career paths that both

:01:58.:02:04.

have their sights set on the quarterfinals. Andy Murray had won

:02:05.:02:08.

his only previous meeting with Misha Zverev, straight sets, the

:02:09.:02:13.

29-year-old German field a brother of one of the game's rising stars.

:02:14.:02:20.

But he has had a number of injuries and 2-mac Riesgo found himself

:02:21.:02:25.

outside the top 1000. On paper and easy fourth-round match for Murray

:02:26.:02:29.

and he was serving for the first set but Zverev found himself with a

:02:30.:02:39.

break point. Murray threw away his lead, broken three times in the

:02:40.:02:41.

first set and this is how Zverev closed it out.

:02:42.:02:46.

, set he has upped his average speed on first serve today, Zverev.

:02:47.:03:32.

Beautiful shot. Not easy with your back to your opponent. He keeps his

:03:33.:03:46.

eye on the ball at all times. He knows where the yellow thingies. The

:03:47.:03:58.

most important thing is to get back quickly.

:03:59.:04:06.

Forget direction, just go with pace. Legitimate shot and the right one.

:04:07.:04:22.

Three' match points instead of three set points. In your mind? In my

:04:23.:04:27.

mind. Great reaction after a sublime

:04:28.:04:51.

return. He's built a career around those type of shots. And he may well

:04:52.:04:55.

have built a comeback around that particular one.

:04:56.:05:06.

That was good, wasn't it? He has packed his bags, he has had enough.

:05:07.:05:15.

What is going on? Going on a camping trip? Let's look at the highlights.

:05:16.:05:26.

Just so many. It would be tough to edit them in 25 seconds. Completely

:05:27.:05:31.

different Travolta yesterday with his younger brother and Rafa but

:05:32.:05:35.

similar kind of feeling with the amount of highlights.

:05:36.:05:48.

How much did that mean as well. This gives you everything, the agony and

:05:49.:05:59.

ecstasy. STUDIO: Marry on level terms and they went into the third

:06:00.:06:00.

toe to toe. COMMENTATOR: I would like to see Andy hit the

:06:01.:06:37.

shots not like he's tried to hit the winner but more of an approach. You

:06:38.:06:48.

could see Zverev was going to have the chip it back. In trouble again

:06:49.:06:58.

for the second time in this set down 0-30. He is talking now every single

:06:59.:07:07.

point to his box. He just can't stop talking.

:07:08.:07:28.

Amazing return. He has done the of times. Going with pace on the second

:07:29.:07:47.

serve. Zverev laps it up. He was lucky there because it was a

:07:48.:08:20.

blistering return. He is even laughing. Why is that?

:08:21.:08:55.

Stanning. What an exhibition of attacking tennis this has been.

:08:56.:09:05.

Zverev justifiably takes that game. He has tried to get around it, live

:09:06.:09:59.

in through it... for the most part the wall has one.

:10:00.:10:32.

That is a great lob. He is making a lot of returns. Sarah Fuster, with

:10:33.:10:38.

some great first volleys and actually he does. After that he has

:10:39.:10:50.

a tough time passing him. Now he does. Maybe that is the case, no

:10:51.:11:00.

mercy. Andy is returning wrong. All the way through the beginning of

:11:01.:11:04.

this third set down at the break, must feel uncomfortable for him.

:11:05.:11:24.

Hitting it with the same accuracy as he was on the one out wide as well,

:11:25.:11:33.

keeping Murray guessing and as a left-hander that is a huge

:11:34.:11:34.

advantage. He has himself, no more lob. On

:11:35.:12:03.

these follies you can see where it is bouncing, you don't have much

:12:04.:12:17.

choice, do you? What a pick up. He had to hit a clean winner and he

:12:18.:12:20.

did. There was no way he was getting back that time. How quickly he

:12:21.:12:28.

changed direction from moving forward after the serve and going to

:12:29.:12:31.

the left. Bracket still under full control.

:12:32.:13:00.

Looking to return it, Zverev serving well. That is actually a cliche.

:13:01.:13:19.

Andy maybe not at his absolute best but quality tennis, very few

:13:20.:13:19.

missing. Both players challenged at the same

:13:20.:13:32.

time. Andy sees the mark, if you look on

:13:33.:14:09.

the market is wide. You hope it is well calibrated.

:14:10.:14:24.

Murray threw absolutely everything he had Zverev in that game to

:14:25.:14:33.

recover the break. STUDIO: Zverev looking in control at the moment,

:14:34.:14:38.

and they went on to win the third set the

:14:39.:14:41.

. Andy Murray facing his earliest exit from the strainer and in eight

:14:42.:14:48.

years. -- from the Australian Open. COMMENTATOR: Big challenge, first

:14:49.:14:58.

point. He is going to have to pick it up

:14:59.:15:31.

quickly. He is going to have to be ready in the next couple of games.

:15:32.:15:33.

No room for talking. There are two Zverevs and I think

:15:34.:16:12.

Murray today can see two down the other end. He thinks he's playing

:16:13.:16:15.

doubles. It is incredible. How good is that? A big flamboyant

:16:16.:17:37.

winner and the quality of stroke making between the two. Not giving

:17:38.:17:42.

him anything to work with. Just keeps on going where he left

:17:43.:18:23.

off in the third set. What is happening to me, you might well ask.

:18:24.:18:29.

This is not what you told me in practice. I want to know were so

:18:30.:18:31.

badly what he's saying. Fortress Zverev. Great shot from

:18:32.:19:12.

Andy. As I said earlier, just as a magnet, the ball comes flying at

:19:13.:19:13.

him. He has got it. Not enough on the

:19:14.:19:38.

forehand. Just an exhilarating winner to add to the collection. On

:19:39.:19:44.

the Sprint, half-volley passing shot, no backswing, down the line,

:19:45.:19:50.

highest park on the net. Just like he planned it. -- highest part of

:19:51.:19:53.

the net. Opening game of the forthcoming yet

:19:54.:20:03.

another break point. His 17th of the match.

:20:04.:20:30.

What can you say about Mischa Zverev? Whatever Murray has thrown

:20:31.:20:45.

at him he has responded with the absolute right shot. Again, the

:20:46.:20:49.

defensive qualities coupled with the attacking play that we've witnessed

:20:50.:20:56.

today, sensational. STUDIO: Andy Murray on the back foot from the

:20:57.:20:58.

start of the fourth set. Zverev playing some brilliant tennis, could

:20:59.:21:03.

he hold on for the best win of his career? We will go back to the

:21:04.:21:10.

action at 3-4 in the fourth set. COMMENTATOR: It can turn, there is

:21:11.:21:13.

no question about that. Murray has come back from seemingly

:21:14.:21:21.

insurmountable situations before and he has considerable talent at his

:21:22.:21:28.

disposal. And unquenchable desire as well.

:21:29.:21:32.

The ingredients for a comeback still here. But this man has a different

:21:33.:21:46.

outcome planned. And his change-up at times has been spectacularly

:21:47.:21:48.

good. And his calmness, too. Fist bump

:21:49.:22:04.

after every point, he takes them one by one. Try to find out, what should

:22:05.:22:09.

I do on the next point that is coming up? Not to get tangled into

:22:10.:22:12.

emotion, make rational choices. It's all about trying to just gain

:22:13.:22:29.

some traction, but some doubt into Zverev's mind. Not an easy pass,

:22:30.:22:40.

when he has two more chances to break the German.

:22:41.:22:46.

But the German again with the change of direction on serve, I'm sure he

:22:47.:22:55.

has peppered the line again. He just doesn't miss.

:22:56.:23:19.

It was for the taking there. You can see what Andy is doing now. This is

:23:20.:23:31.

his last line of defence. This is mind games, this is whatever it

:23:32.:23:32.

takes. It is within the rules. You have got to be kidding me! No,

:23:33.:24:12.

well... His brother is going to applaud because he needs to just try

:24:13.:24:17.

and get him back into neutral here. And put this miss behind him as

:24:18.:24:19.

quickly as possible. What the recovery. He said in his

:24:20.:24:49.

match against John Isner at the crucial point he looked at his mum,

:24:50.:24:54.

who was just smiling after he made a mistake and said, well if she's

:24:55.:25:00.

smiling it's all OK. Looking at your mum for the next seven minutes.

:25:01.:25:16.

CHEERING That was a wonderful outcome for the

:25:17.:25:22.

German. Having missed that setup or a smash. -- sitter of a smash. It's

:25:23.:25:31.

not supposed to be easy to be the world number one. He is given to

:25:32.:25:42.

have a chance to serve for it. Don't be forward, and he still has the

:25:43.:25:46.

hold right here. He is everywhere, he is just

:25:47.:26:14.

absolutely everywhere. Andy is going to wake up tonight seeing this guy

:26:15.:26:22.

in his dreams. On the inside of his islets. He is ubiquitous. The shrug

:26:23.:26:25.

of his islets. He is not a steady any more, you can

:26:26.:28:06.

soon obviously it is a stretch motion in general but Cole Beasley

:28:07.:28:12.

his arms not as loose any more. I think Murray should try to take

:28:13.:28:13.

advantage of that in the rallies. That is the best way to go forward

:28:14.:28:48.

for Zverev, camouflage it. Taking that aggressive approach and going

:28:49.:28:49.

forward again. He was lucky there. Fastest serve of the tournament. It

:28:50.:29:22.

won't be his last. The way that Zverev is returning, he

:29:23.:29:59.

may not have too served against Dave. That pressure is building on

:30:00.:30:05.

the world number one. -- again today. Look how he stands, inside of

:30:06.:30:10.

the baseline, the moment that he hits his return. It really helps

:30:11.:30:13.

that he gets close to the net on that first volley.

:30:14.:30:32.

If there is a way, Murray has the world... -- has the will.

:30:33.:31:12.

Is that an overrule? He says it is that much out, Andy... You can see

:31:13.:31:25.

it, there. It is out? He can challenge if he wants to... But he

:31:26.:31:35.

only has one left... If he uses the challenge, there is no more. And it

:31:36.:31:36.

is wrong. Interesting to see what a panic it

:31:37.:31:57.

causes to Andy Murray, for this guide chipping in like this, coming

:31:58.:32:03.

in in this state. Kids at home, look at this, carefully. Playing serve

:32:04.:32:11.

and volley, know how to hit that chip return.

:32:12.:32:35.

That is a great class. The volley was not good enough. Andy Murray

:32:36.:32:45.

anticipated it well. The approach was great, down the centre.

:32:46.:32:56.

That is outrageous! He is not done yet. A matchup from his tennis

:32:57.:33:37.

racket, still... He is going to need a lot more coming up. That was

:33:38.:33:46.

supposed to be the easy part. This one was behind him. Like almost a

:33:47.:33:53.

left-handed forehand. Not often you see Andy Murray taking his hand off,

:33:54.:33:59.

as he hits it. He gets his hands there from Ivan. Coming out of her

:34:00.:34:06.

seat, ever present and supportive of her husband. What must Misha 's

:34:07.:34:23.

Zverev be thinking? Andy Murray, looking for inspiration in those

:34:24.:34:30.

notes of his... When he has time to salvage his Australian Open

:34:31.:34:35.

campaign, it has been a long time since the first and second seeds

:34:36.:34:38.

have lost before the quarterfinals in a Grand Slam, you have to go back

:34:39.:34:43.

to 2004. Roland-Garros lost in the third round, and Andy Roddick to

:34:44.:34:57.

Oliver neuters. It's a rare occasion if he knocks him out here...

:34:58.:35:14.

That is a great hit and a great pick-up, he is making his presence

:35:15.:35:27.

felt. Moving around just before. Zverev serving... Look at this...

:35:28.:35:47.

It is going to be a challenge? I think that he has made it. There are

:35:48.:36:00.

no remarks, but given what he missed in the previous came, he could not

:36:01.:36:04.

be feeling confident... -- in the previous game.

:36:05.:36:09.

Somewhere, a half string, a half frame.

:36:10.:36:21.

It is a great return, once again... Down the middle.

:36:22.:36:37.

Even if he is not going to pull this one out... Everything that Andy

:36:38.:36:41.

Murray does to ... That is the most incredible shot

:36:42.:36:54.

of all time. CHEERING

:36:55.:36:59.

APPLAUSE Can you believe this? For all the

:37:00.:37:10.

world, it looked as if he was beaten. Hands down.

:37:11.:37:27.

I cannot believe it. Doing absolutely everything possible.

:37:28.:37:41.

Everything possible so he can't lose. But this man just has the

:37:42.:37:52.

psychic ability at this moment. Look at that! This just brings out the

:37:53.:38:05.

best of everything. This is Big Brother's time. Match points...

:38:06.:38:12.

CHEERING The world's best is out, buy the

:38:13.:38:20.

best performance, that Mischa Zverev has ever produced in his career. You

:38:21.:38:29.

could not be happier for him as well. It is one of those tournaments

:38:30.:38:37.

that has just given so much to all of us. It hasn't given to Andy

:38:38.:38:46.

Murray his Australian Open dream, again. But this man deserves all of

:38:47.:38:52.

the accolades and all of the praise, and all of the respect, for a

:38:53.:38:55.

performance that will be remembered for ages. Andy Murray gave

:38:56.:39:09.

everything he had. Just come on the day, it was not enough. -- on the

:39:10.:39:17.

day, it was not enough. Look at that! This says it all. How

:39:18.:39:36.

did you do it? How did you pull it off? I don't know. I was in a coma,

:39:37.:39:41.

serving throughout! Tell me how I did it! Their way few points where I

:39:42.:39:46.

did not know how to pull it off. I won certain points but somehow, I

:39:47.:39:53.

made it. STUDIO: Mischa Zverev reaches his first-ever Grand Slam

:39:54.:39:56.

quarterfinal, which will take him into the top 40 for the first time.

:39:57.:40:01.

But now, what about Andy Murray? Can you give us some thoughts of

:40:02.:40:07.

McNichol on that match and how Mischa Zverev played against you?

:40:08.:40:10.

Obviously, it was tough. A pretty long one. In hard conditions and

:40:11.:40:20.

Mischa came up with great stuff committee has a style which not many

:40:21.:40:27.

players play these days. He played extremely well, especially at the

:40:28.:40:30.

end of the match. He came up with great stuff. A lot of good volleys,

:40:31.:40:35.

pick-ups, reflexes. He is really good. He deserved to win. But yes, a

:40:36.:40:42.

tough one to lose. You had such an amazing end to the last season, with

:40:43.:40:48.

21 matches unbeaten. Do you have to take the rough with the smooth as a

:40:49.:40:52.

tennis player? Are you good at moving on from defeats like this

:40:53.:40:58.

now? I would say, nowadays, when I was younger it would have been

:40:59.:41:04.

tougher. It was disappointing losing today, for sure. A tough one. One of

:41:05.:41:08.

the biggest events, and one that I've wanted to do better at. But

:41:09.:41:13.

yes, I've got other things in my life now. So, I'm disappointed to

:41:14.:41:20.

lose. But after a great end to last year, I get a bit of time off now,

:41:21.:41:26.

and a break. I will try to learn from it. And try and understand what

:41:27.:41:30.

I could have done a bit better, and improve and come back and try again.

:41:31.:41:37.

STUDIO: Andy Murray sounding low there, and understandably so. He

:41:38.:41:40.

says he has bounced back from disappointment before. A shock in

:41:41.:41:44.

Melbourne, 24 hours after second seed Novak Djokovic was knocked out,

:41:45.:41:48.

the top seed has also gone. The first time since the 2004 French

:41:49.:41:53.

Open that the top two seeds in the minstrel had been beaten before the

:41:54.:42:01.

quarterfinals. -- the mens drawer. Stan Wawrinka safely negotiated his

:42:02.:42:05.

way into the last eight, beating Andreas Seppi in straight sets. With

:42:06.:42:10.

Andy Murray gone, Dan Evans had the job of lifting the British spirits.

:42:11.:42:13.

He made the headlines by beating Marin Cilic and Tomic, and a

:42:14.:42:20.

big-name awaited Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the 12th seed and 2008 finalist.

:42:21.:42:27.

With confidence high, he was not to be intimidated. We join the action

:42:28.:42:32.

in a first set tie-break, let's go over to our commentators...

:42:33.:43:01.

Very animated as always, Dan Evans. This is excellent. He explodes out

:43:02.:43:09.

of this. Before you know it, he is a hard man to pass. You wonder, why

:43:10.:43:15.

doesn't he do this more often? When he made the final back in 2008, he

:43:16.:43:19.

volleyed a lot, hitting and coming forward. Evans, taking an extra

:43:20.:43:28.

second here to make sure that he is locating all of the balls, and

:43:29.:43:31.

giving himself an extra moment. Giving himself a breather. Smart

:43:32.:43:33.

play. I think he has won over the crowd...

:43:34.:43:53.

I think they enjoy his feisty attitude. That he is giving his

:43:54.:43:56.

all... I think that he will get a

:43:57.:44:18.

sponsorship as well. He did not have that over the last couple of days,

:44:19.:44:27.

that handle... Good for him... The coaches deserve some love to, Josh!

:44:28.:44:35.

I agree. What they have to put up with and in dual, why not? -- and

:44:36.:44:43.

endure. Well, well, well... 3-1, Evans.

:44:44.:44:57.

Thank you. CHEERING

:44:58.:46:02.

Making the turn... We have seen this throughout the week, and in Sydney,

:46:03.:46:05.

these big moments where he steps up to the plate. He has been excellent.

:46:06.:46:21.

He's going to challenge it. I think that it would be a waste...

:46:22.:46:41.

Sanga Mac has three challenges remaining.

:46:42.:47:28.

Just a slight serve down the tee, doing well on these points. His

:47:29.:47:38.

backhand is the weakest side. Does he go aggressive? Or, conservative?

:47:39.:48:02.

A very aggressive look from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, set point, Dan

:48:03.:48:09.

Evans. He changes up the pattern, taking

:48:10.:48:54.

beforehand and exposing the backhand. Evans finishes well,

:48:55.:48:58.

taking the first set, stealing it. 7-6.

:48:59.:49:04.

STUDIO: In the first game of the second set, Dan Evans was fighting

:49:05.:49:07.

hard, seeing off nine break point so far in the match. That, ten was one

:49:08.:49:09.

too many... Game, Tsonga. So, Dan Evans's

:49:10.:49:29.

resistance broke and Tsonga took the second and third sets. We rejoin the

:49:30.:49:35.

play 1-1 at the beginning of the fourth set...

:49:36.:49:55.

I think that was the three Stooges bit... Are they begin France? --

:49:56.:50:07.

baked in France? They are in Australia. -- are they big.

:50:08.:50:45.

He is hugged. Just taking a little breather. He takes a breather to get

:50:46.:50:52.

back into this match. He is just paying the price for a

:50:53.:51:32.

tonne of matches, early in this match, in the first hour, he was

:51:33.:51:34.

defending fiercely. Now, he is an dead legs. -- on dead

:51:35.:51:55.

legs. It is his heart that has to get him through.

:51:56.:52:09.

Close, mate. Really close. Clean, easy. A winner for Tsonga. I hate to

:52:10.:52:27.

say at this early, but it feels like a match point? Excellent. He goes

:52:28.:52:30.

out after it. That's great initiative. That is Jo-Wilfried at

:52:31.:52:34.

his best... It is just too good. Tsonga

:52:35.:52:48.

thoroughly in control. 2-1. STUDIO: Evans had fought heart

:52:49.:52:52.

hard to stay in, but Tsonga found himself serving after nearly three

:52:53.:53:01.

hours on the courts... COMMENTATOR: The 2008 runner-up one hold away

:53:02.:53:03.

from the quarterfinals here... CHEERING

:53:04.:53:20.

The crowd have loved seeing Jo-Wilfried in action... They have

:53:21.:53:25.

highly appreciated those efforts from Dan Evans. Not only in this

:53:26.:53:27.

match, but throughout the summer. The adrenaline is pumping... That is

:53:28.:53:39.

the fastest serve of the day... CHEERING

:53:40.:54:40.

17 for the match, 221, his fastest of the week! Three match points.

:54:41.:54:45.

40-0, thank you. Please... It is going to be Tsonga and Stan

:54:46.:55:05.

Wawrinka in the quarterfinals. The big serve has pushed him through.

:55:06.:55:06.

Tsonga, .

:55:07.:55:22.

We see that signature celebration from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, popular

:55:23.:55:25.

with the crowd, but no British players left in the men's draw now.

:55:26.:55:29.

Russell Fuller caught up with Dan Evans after that defeat... I know

:55:30.:55:34.

that I was flagging a little. I really needed that first set, to

:55:35.:55:39.

hold on into the second. To maybe get a break, but I did not break him

:55:40.:55:44.

at all today. It's another class player who got the better of me. You

:55:45.:55:49.

had to do a lot of running today, as you did against Bernard Tomic. Over

:55:50.:55:53.

the last two weeks, how do you look back at your spelling Australia, has

:55:54.:55:58.

it been the time of your life? -- spell in Australia. It has, I really

:55:59.:56:02.

enjoyed it. Even those matches that I lost. It's been really good,

:56:03.:56:06.

playing Roger Federer in his first match back in front of that many

:56:07.:56:12.

people was great. As soon as I lost, I was... My thoughts turned to home

:56:13.:56:16.

and getting back. It has been a long time out here and are ready to go

:56:17.:56:20.

now. It may be a busy flight home, in case you missed it earlier, Andy

:56:21.:56:26.

Murray is out and Dom Inglot misting -- lost in his third round of the

:56:27.:56:32.

men's doubles as well. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga goes on to meet Stan

:56:33.:56:37.

Wawrinka, whilst Andy Murray's conqueror Mischa Zverev takes on

:56:38.:56:40.

Roger Federer. He caused an upset himself after six months out

:56:41.:56:46.

injured, he is down at 17th seed. He beat K Nishikori of Japan in a five

:56:47.:56:53.

set battle. His dream of an 18th Grand Slam title lives on. The men's

:56:54.:57:00.

seeds are dropping like flies. The top seed and defending champion

:57:01.:57:07.

Angelique Kerber, in the women's singles, she has been knocked out by

:57:08.:57:17.

Coco Vandeweghe. The next opponent for Coco Vandeweghe is Garbine

:57:18.:57:28.

Muguruza. Don't forget, Britain's Johanna Konta is in the next. We

:57:29.:57:34.

have all of the highlights of her fourth-round match against Ekaterina

:57:35.:57:36.

Makarova here on BBC Two from quarter to five tomorrow. Before

:57:37.:57:38.

that, at 1pm... That is about it from us. After

:57:39.:57:54.

beginning with such promise, it has turned into a rather gloomy day for

:57:55.:57:59.

British tennis. Dan Evans will move away from Melbourne, remembering it

:58:00.:58:03.

for all of the right reasons. But for Andy Murray, it's a trip to

:58:04.:58:06.

Australia that I think he would rather forget. Joanna Konta --

:58:07.:58:13.

Johanna Konta? It's over to you. Goodbye.

:58:14.:58:20.

# It's over... # It's over... It's over...
