The 2009 victor was taken to four physically-demanding sets in nearly four hours before prevailing 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena, ensuring he remains world number one after the tournament ends.

Also, No. 10 Pablo Carreno Busta beat No. 23 Gilles Muller and will next play No. 6 Marin Cilic, who had a 7-6 (4), 6-3, 7-6 (4) win over Ryan Harrison.

Nadal dropped his first set of the tournament before regrouping to move into the last eight with a 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 6-3 victory in three hours and 51 minutes on Sunday. Two days after saving two-match points and rallying from 5-1 down in the third set to progress through the second round, Wozniacki advanced 6-4, 6-3 over No. 30 Kiki Bertens on her fourth match point.

Rafael Nadal and Grigor Dimitrov had tough battles to get past opponents to reach the final eight of the Australian Open on Sunday.

The win was Cilic's 100th at a Grand Slam. "Always when you reach the quarterfinals or the finals round, you must be happy". Schwartzman knew he had to overpower Nadal from the baseline in order to achieve a positive result and he produced some fine shotmaking to make Nadal uncomfortable and to keep the points on his racquet. All I can say is that I think I'm in a good place, I think I'm hitting the ball well and everything's been going well in the last year-and-a-half.

"It was an interesting match, he made a strong start but I took control at the end of the second set".

But Dimitrov got a crucial service break in the eighth game of the fourth set when Kyrgios put a smash into the net to allow the Bulgarian to serve out for the match.

The victory ensured Nadal, who lost a five-set classic to long-time rival Roger Federer in the final previous year, will retain his world number one ranking. "He's a great player in all aspects and I feel that for a lot of moments he was serving well this afternoon". I haven´t been to many Tennis matches. "But moments like this helps to be more confident in yourself, in your body".

After saving match points and coming back from 5-1 down in the third set of her second-round win, No. 2-ranked Wozniacki said she was "playing with the house money" and had nothing to lose. You know, I was talking to him in the third set.

With this win, Nadal will stay at the top of the ATP rankings no matter what would happen in the next week, including Federer's title defense.

Asked what he said, he replied: "I said, I watched a load of your movies a bunch of times".

Wozniacki won in straight sets, 6-3, 6-0, and is now into the quarterfinals.
