New Jersey's Tommy Paul booked a spot in his first ever Grand Slam quarter-final after defeating Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open.

The Spaniard, buoyed by defeating former world No 1 Andy Murray, was worn down in a 'war' of a fourth round match, with 35th-ranked Paul winning6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 on Monday.

'It was a really physical, tough match,' Paul said. 'Any time you play Bautista it's going to be a war. So I was prepared for that match and I thought I executed really well today.'

This was the fifth time these two players were meeting - Bautista Agut had won three of the previous four - but Paul looked confident and that only grew as the match wore on inside Margaret Court Arena.

The match started on Bautista Agut's racquet but he was to be broken in a mammoth 23-minute opening game, which saw five deuces and Paul convert on his fourth break point opportunity.
