On an overcast and muggy day at Melbourne Park, the Spanish world number one was up against his most dangerous opponent yet in pocket-rocket Diego Schwartzman, one of the smallest men on tour.The Argentine 24th seed endeared with his astonishingly powerful groundstrokes before Nadal prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-3 in almost four hours on Rod Laver Arena.It kept alive his push for a 17th Grand Slam title and also ensured he will remain number one when the new rankings come out after the tournament.The win was Cilic's 100th at a Grand Slam.Ordinarily Nadal, as the top seed, would have top billing on Rod Laver in the evening, but not with local star Kyrgios in action.World number two Wozniacki turned on the style in her match to take another step towards a maiden Grand Slam title.
