Roger Who? Roger Federer can't get past Australian Open security

Rafael Nadal hailed Alex de Minaur as "one of the best in the world" but still showed the teenager the Australian Open door 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 in the third round on Friday.

The 37-year-old defending champion beat American Taylor Fritz in straight sets to advance to the fourth round of a grand slam for the 64th time.

Rules are rules but tennis fans were left astonished at the audacity of the security guard at stopping the six-time Australian Open champion given his notoriety in the sport.

While countrymen Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios continue to capture plenty of headlines for all the wrong reasons de Minaur said he preferred to let his tennis do the talking. Sky customers can stream this match on the Sky Go app.

"He's a big fighter and super quick". "That match point saved was unbelievable".

"I think I wanted to get out of the blocks quickly".

The first three games of the match ran to several deuces and 23 minutes of pulsating baseline rallying.

Federer made a blistering start, his break in the third game set up by a blistering backhand cross-court pass. "I had to fight and fight and try to give myself that opportunity, but it just didn't come".

"It is a feeling that is hard to describe", added the man who is gunning for an 18th Grand Slam crown. After winning his first title in Sydney last week, he cracked the top 30 to reach the heights of No. 29. He faces Czech Tomas Berdych in the last 16 on Sunday, hoping to feel the love once more.
