Australian Open day seven: Cameron Norrie breaks new ground as Iga Swiatek falls

Cameron Norrie claimed the best grand slam win of his career at the Australian Open against Casper Ruud to make the second week for the first time.

But world number one Iga Swiatek is out after being stunned in three sets by Czech teenager Linda Noskova, opening the women’s draw right up.

Carlos Alcaraz benefited from the retirement of Shang Juncheng after little over an hour, while Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev also won.
