Aussie young gun knocks out Zverev


//

Aussie young gun Alexei Popyrin has upset German veteran Mischa Zverev, brother of world No. 4 Alexei Zverev to give Australia their equal-best start at Melbourne Park in 16 years.

The 19-year-old blasted his way into the second round in a straight sets 7-5 7-6 6-4 win to become the 10th Australian to progress past their first encounter in Melbourne.

It took the 2017 junior French Open champion a little under two hours to dispatch Zverev as he hit a whopping 60 winners against the 31-year-old on his way to victory.

It was a brilliant Australian Open debut for the World No. 149, who broke into the top 150 after claiming his first ATP scalp late last year.

He joins countrymen Alex de Minaur, John Millman, Jordan Thompson, Matt Ebden and Alex Bolt in the second round, after eight Australians had won their opening matches on Monday.

Popyrin will face Benoit Paire or seventh seed Dominic Thiem for a place in the third round.
