Stefanos Tsitsipas upsets Rafael Nadal in Aussie Open 5-setter

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Fives were wild at the Australian Open Wednesday. Fifth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas upset Rafael Nadal in an epic five-set match to make the semifinals.

"I'm speechless. I have no words to describe what just happened on the court. My tennis speaks for itself," Tsitsipas said after the match.

Second-seeded Nadal took the first two sets fairly easily to run his streak of consecutive sets won at major tournaments to 35.

But Nadal made some mistakes in a third-set tiebreaker and dropped it.

Tsitsipas then took the fourth set, too.
