Kyrgios initially had none of it and demanded to see the rulebook.

& # 39; I'm not going to play until you show me the rule, & # 39; he fumed.

& # 39; I want to know the rule. I want to see the rule.

Faced with a possible suspension after the last grand slam of the season while the ATP are pairing & # 39; major offenses & # 39; investigates, Kyrgios will play the Russian Andrey Rublev on Saturday for a place in the last 16.

He was able to meet fellow countryman Alexei Popyrin in the fourth round after the fast-rising 20-year-old continued his excellent first full season with a brave four-set victory over world No. 47 Mikhail Kukushkin.

Popyrin fought back from a set and a service failed to match his attack on the Australian Open third round with a 2-6 7-5 6-3 6-2 win over the seasoned Kazakh.

Popyrin plays the Italian Matteo Berrettini after the 24th seed has eliminated the Australian No.3 Jordan Thompson 7-5 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 6-1.

The Thanasi Kokkinakis tournament is also over after the unfortunate star was forced to withdraw from his planned center-court confrontation with Rafael Nadal with a repeat of a pec muscle load.

Kokkinakis fought nearly four hours on Tuesday to defeat Ilya Ivashka in four sets in what was the 24-year-old's first win over a grand slam since the French Open 2015.

& # 39; I don't think I'm ready for grand slams yet. It is a bitter pill to swallow, & Kokkinakis said.

But Alex de Minaur joined Kyrgios and Popyrin in the third round with an impressive 6-3 7-5 6-3 win over Chilean Christan Garin.
